The Clippers lost at home to the Pacers on Sunday, in spite of Blake Griffin's team-high 24 points, 16 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal.
L.A. coughed up a big early lead and Griffin was one of the only players who looked engaged on both ends tonight, as the Clippers committed 20 turnovers while getting out-scored in the paint 58-36. Blake drained 10-of-21 shots tonight and the Clippers' loss doesn't make his line any less appealing to fantasy owners. Dec 5 - 12:23 AM

Blake Griffin scored 27 points on 12-of-22 shooting in Friday's 114-96 win over the Pelicans.

This was the second night of a back-to-back set and he logged 34 minutes, so it's safe to say that he's healthy after a knee/calf scare last week. Griffin added four assists, two blocks and hit a triple to give him five 3-pointers on the season. He gets a matchup with the Pacers on Sunday.
Dec 2 - 11:26 PM

Blake Griffin hit just 4-of-14 shots and 5-of-8 free throws for 13 points, but also had five rebounds, 11 assists and a steal in just 31 minutes of Thursday's blowout 113-94 win over the Cavs.

Griffin was on pace to set a career high in assists, but didn't play much in the second half with the game well in hand. The 11 dimes ties his career high and his low scoring was simply a result of the blowout. He sat out his previous game to rest, so we all expected him to come out with a vengeance tonight. While that didn't happen, the assists were nice.
Dec 1 - 11:08 PM

Blake Griffin is starting against the Cavs, as expected.

He got the night off on Tuesday and should be ready to roll for the national TV game. Griffin should be going at Kevin Love a ton tonight.
Dec 1 - 7:56 PM

Blake Griffin (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Nets, and Paul Pierce will draw the start in his place.

The Clippers probably don't need him to secure a win over the lowly Nets (4-12), so it makes sense to give Griffin the night off, but head coach Doc Rivers confirmed that he'll be back in action for Thursday's game in Cleveland. Chris Paul will be running the show on offense tonight, and DeAndre Jordan could be looking at a 20-20 game, so both those guys look like solid DFS targets. Interestingly, when Griffin has been off the court this season, J.J. Redick's usage rate has spiked to 27.1, so he too could have a nice game against a terrible defensive team.

On Tuesday, Doc Rivers said he would consider resting some of his players over the final three games of their current road trip.

Rivers declined to give any details about which players he might sit, and/or during which games. The Clippers play at Brooklyn on Tuesday and then play in Cleveland on Thursday and at New Orleans on Friday in a back-to-back. This is obviously a situation we will keep an eye on. Encouragingly, Rivers did say that Blake Griffin's calf, which was kicked during last Friday's game in Detroit, was "fine."
Nov 29 - 11:36 AM

Blake Griffin said after Sunday's loss to the Clippers that he some swelling in his right knee.

Griffin was kicked in the calf during Friday's game against the Pistons and wore a sleeve on his right leg on Sunday to provide some extra support for his knee. It sounds like the injury is minor and it shouldn't be a long-term concern, but it's worth noting that the Clippers play the 4-12 Nets on Tuesday. For now, we'll keep Griffin off the injury report.
Nov 28 - 11:01 AM

Blake Griffin chipped in across the board vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday with 12 points, six boards, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

It was a showdown between the team with the league's best record and the team with the worst record, and the outcome was predictable -- none of L.A.'s starters played more than 26 minutes due to the lopsided score. "Blake is doing everything for us," Doc Rivers said after Monday's game. "The fact that he can bring the ball up and make decisions gives us another dimension offensively." He's posting second-round value and shows no signs of slowing down.

Nov 24 - 12:44 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with seven rebounds and seven assists in a 123-115 win vs. the Raptors on Monday.

He shot an efficient 10-of-17 from the field and hit 6-of-8 from the line, adding one block, one steal and zero turnovers in 36 minutes. Griffin is one of the hottest players in the league right now with averages of 25.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks on 54.5 percent shooting from the field over his last five games. He's crushing his ADP after a slow start to the season and just needs to stay healthy.
Nov 22 - 1:24 AM

Blake Griffin was terrific yet again during a 102-95 win over the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 26 points with 13 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

He sure does look 100 percent. Griffin playing 38.0 minutes per game in his two back-to-back games this weekend speak volumes about how his legs are doing. He was 10-of-10 from the line tonight for the second-most makes in a game without a miss in his career. That and his 15-of-16 on Friday bumped him up to 79.2 percent from the line on the season. After a slow start, Griffin is already up to second-round value on the season. As long as he stays healthy, Griffin looks like he's in for a big season on the 12-2 Clippers.
Nov 20 - 2:06 AM

Blake Griffin scored a season-high 29 points against the Kings during a 121-115 win on Friday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, one block, two steals and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

He made a season-high 15 free throws on his 16 attempts in this game. Griffin is locked in as a scorer with at least 20 points in six straight. Before this stretch, BG actually didn't have back-to-back 20-point games since December of last season. The Clippers are undefeated on the road, but they get the Bulls at home on Saturday. Additionally, they have lost their top-ranked spot on defense with the Hawks passing them tonight. They are still No. 2 on D and lead the NBA in net rating by 5.0.
Nov 19 - 3:30 AM

Blake Griffin scored 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Monday's win over the Nets, adding six assists, six rebounds, two steals and one turnover in 26 minutes.

This was his fourth game in a row with 20 or more points and he's averaging 20.0 points, 9.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games. He hasn't hit a 3-pointer in eight straight games and has missed his last eight attempts, but he's returning fourth-round value in standard leagues with room to grow.
Nov 15 - 12:48 AM

Blake Griffin scored 20 points against the Wolves on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists, one block and two turnovers during a 119-105 win.

That's his third game in a row with at least 20 points. Griffin became the fastest player to reach 9,000 points, 4,000 rebounds and 1,500 assists since Larry Bird. He's also cooking in his last five, averaging 21.6 points, 9.0 boards, 4.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.4 blocks. Griffin is already up to fourth-round value on the season after the slow start. The Clippers are 9-1, lead the NBA in net rating and their schedule hasn't been a cakewalk either.
Nov 13 - 1:22 AM

Blake Griffin scored 25 points against the Thunder on Friday with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

Somewhat surprisingly, this was the first time Griffin posted back-to-back 20-point games since December of last season. After a somewhat slow start, Griffin is rolling in his last four with averages of 22.0 points, 8.5 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.3 blocks on 54.7 percent from the field. The Clippers will play their second road-road back-to-back on Saturday, but that wasn't an issue back on Nov. 5. Expect Blake to get minutes in the low 30s against Karl-Anthony Towns and the Wolves.
Nov 12 - 1:54 AM

Blake Griffin scored a game-high 22 points during a 111-80 win over the Blazers on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 26 minutes.

The Clippers are the only seven-win team in the NBA while they're leading the league in defensive rating and net rating. Their crushing of teams has kept Griffin's minutes down to 31.3 per game on the season, averaging 19.6 points, 10.1 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.5 blocks. Even though the Clippers are playing great, Griffin's fantasy value has him just inside the top 50 for standard leagues.
