Last night, the Clippers and Rockets squared off in a game with no Finals, top record in the West or, at the moment, playoff implications. But Blake Griffin was on the court, and what more really needs to be said from there? H-Town won by a score of 97-92 snapping the Clips three game winning streak in the process. Our man BG32 continued to fill the stat sheet up with 24 points and 18 rebounds for what seems like his 55th double-double of the season.
Yet, even with the “rookie campaign” he is currently having, Brad Miller obviously did not get the memo Timofey Mozgov, Danilo Gallinari, the San Antonio Spurs and Lamar Odom faxed and/or tweeted the rest of the league. Miller, who was caught on the wrong end of a fast break, is just lucky he did not attempt to jump. The fear in his eyes is apparent once he turns around and realizes he’s in the paint and Griff’s armpit is rim level. Just another day in the gym for the most disrespectful man in basketball.
In all seriousness though, if you’re not voting for Blake to start in the All Star Game, what’s your excuse? Name another power forward in the West more exciting than him? He’s Shawn Kemp minus the total disregard of contraception.
