Blake Griffin gave his fans everything they could ask for (except for a win) on Tuesday night against the Warriors. He scored 40 points on 16 of 25 shooting, hit all 8 free throws, grabbed 12 rebounds, dished out 5 assists, got a theft and blocked a season-high 3 shots!
As for highlights, the play of the night from him came in the 2nd quarter when he showed off some sick ball handling by going between his legs and behind his back multiple times on a single play (video above).
For the first 3 quarters, everything was going his way – even lucky bounces like this.
But unfortunately the Clippers blew a 17 point lead and had their 7 game win streak snapped courtesy of the Warriors and Steph Curry who did some ankle snapping to Chris Paul.
