Blake Griffin had his first career playoff triple double (29 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists) against Tim Duncan and the Spurs in GM2 but unfortunately his costly turnover with 11 seconds left in regulation is the play more people will remember than any of his monster dunks in this loss for the Clippers.
“That game is on me,” said Blake. “I just got to take care of the ball.”
Up by 2 with 14 seconds left in regulation, Blake tried to go 1-on-1 with Marco Belinelli and ended up losing the ball which led to Patty Mills getting fouled on the other end and making two free throws to put the game into OT.
Blake scored the first 4 points in OT but had another costly turnover with a minute left in the extra session and missed a 3-pointer at the end after more clutch free throws from Patty Mills.
