What should of been a Clippers win and Blake celebrating a triple double turned out to be a Portland win and Nic Batum celebrating his 20/10 and career high 12 assist triple double.

Chris Paul was out for the game and Blake was a last minute decision to play because of a sore ankle but his ankle looked fine when he took off over Batum for a sick lefty dunk in the 2nd quarter.  Blake also put up an impressive 24 points and 10 assists but somehow missed the triple double by a rebound!   The only thing worse than a forward missing a triple double in the rebounds cat is Joakim Noah missing a triple double last night by a point.  He finished  with 9/17/10 but also ended up with a L against the Wizards.

The Wizards is actually one of the two teams Blake has had a triple double against.  The Grizzlies being the other.
