Blake Griffin had 26 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, 3 blocks and 3 nasty posters on Aron Baynes during Sunday’s GM1 victory over the Spurs.
“I just want to be aggressive,” Griffin said. “I don’t want to settle for anything, because now is not the time to have the mindset of self-preservation.”
The first of 3 dunks came midway in the 3rd quarter when Blake went one-on-one with Baynes, gave him a fake and then threw down a 2 hand swing on the rim like Shawn Kemp dunk.
The next RIP worthy dunk came 2 minutes later with CP3 and Blake playing the pick and roll.
The 3rd and best dunk of the 3rd quarter came with a minute left when Blake made a spin move on Corey Joseph and found none other than Baynes under the rim. Blake then made a spectacular block and save which led to a CP3 layup on the other end and for owner Steve Ballmer to absolutely loose his mind from the excitement.
If that wasn’t enough punishment in 5 minutes of action, Baynes also fell into the crowd as he and Matt Barnes fought over a loose ball.
The Clippers ended up winning Game 1 by 15 and if the Spurs continue to play the way they did for most of this game then they are going to end up just like Baynes: dead, a lot sooner than most expected.
