Blake Griffin is excited about getting a little more rest during the upcoming season.
"My third season in the league when we had that unbelievable bench, I think I dropped to like 32 minutes a game in the regular season...You definitely feel fresher toward the end," Griffin said. After averaging above 35 minutes per game in each of the last two seasons, Griffin could drop down to the 32.5 he played during the 2012-13 season. Aug 24 - 10:47 AM

Blake Griffin said taking 3-pointers "blew up" on him and he's not expecting to take more next season.

He made a very respectable 10-of-25 (40 percent) last season, so it's not like it was a complete nightmare. Griffin said he is working on his shooting, which is nice to see after he improved his free throw shooting to 72.8 percent last year. He was actually 76.7 percent from the line after the break last season, so there's a decent chance he clears 75 percent in 2015-16. He's a rock-solid pick in the second round.

Blake Griffin will attend Team USA's minicamp in August in the hopes of playing at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.

Griffin was unable to play at the FIBA World Cup last year due to a back injury and missed the 2012 Summer Olympics in London because of his knee, so it's great that we will have the chance to watch him in Brazil next summer. Griffin really took a step forward in the playoffs last season with averages of 25.5 points, 12.7 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals per game, so his owners will have plenty to be excited about heading into the new season.

Blake Griffin responded to a question about the "Clippers curse" after the Clippers' Game 7 loss to the Rockets in the Western Conference Semifinals.

"The Clipper curse when I first got here was No. 1 picks getting hurt, not working out; their draft picks not working out, not making the playoffs, not having winning seasons," Griffin said. "No one talked about not getting past the second round. Not a single soul talked about that, but now, that’s what everybody talks about. Just like the last one, we’re going to bust through this one." Looking at the numbers (25.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game), Griffin was not bothered by any sort of curse during the Clippers' playoff run, and he'll be an obvious early-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.

Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 27 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and one block in 44 minutes on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to avoid a season-ending loss in Houston.

Blake was a beast throughout L.A.'s run, ranking sixth in the playoffs in scoring (25.5 points per game), third in rebounds (12.7) and ninth in assists (6.1). Unfortunately, his pretty stats in Game 7 were overshadowed by lackadaisical defense and a string of sloppy turnovers, giving him plenty to mull as he heads into the offseason. He cracked the top-25 in 8-cat leagues during the regular season and there's no reason to expect slippage next year.

Blake Griffin was on his way to a big game before a disastrous finish on Thursday during a loss to the Rockets, scoring 28 points with eight boards, two assists, two steals and one block.

It looked like the Clippers had this one in the bag. They were up 18 points, Blake Griffin was putting in no-look layups while looking at the camera and the Clippers were getting easy shots. However, they made just one of their final 16 shots in an epic choke job. It's not going to be easy to bounce back from this one.

Yahoo! Sports Marc J. Spears speaking on John Canzano’s Bald-Faced Truth radio show said that there's a rumor out there that Blake Griffin could potentially land in Portland in a sign-and-trade deal with LaMarcus Aldridge.

Nope. Spears prefaced these comments by first repeating: This is a rumor. This is a rumor. This is a rumor. So we really wouldn't read much into it. The connection is that Portland's GM Neil Olshey was the GM of the Clippers when they drafted Blake, but this rumor has roughly a zero percent chance of coming to fruition. Move along.

Blake Griffin continues to be the best player in the playoffs and had 34 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block on 13-of-23 shooting in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Rockets.

Griffin couldn't do much more and the Clippers are thrilled with a split in Houston, without Chris Paul. He was coming off five straight games with at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, and two straight triple-doubles, and while he didn't match those numbers tonight, the 34 points were a playoff high for this season.
May 7 - 1:03 AM

Blake Griffin triple-doubled with 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting (8-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, 13 assists and one steal in the Clippers' 99-92 Game 1 win over the Rockets in Houston.

Griffin looked visibly tired after a long battle with the Spurs, but with Chris Paul (hamstring) out he had a ton of responsibility tonight as you can see. Heck, DeAndre Jordan even chipped in with five assists to go with two steals, four blocks and an otherwise normal 10 points and 13 boards. Griffin has been outstanding during these playoffs and the Rockets looked like a lower class team in tonight's series opener.
May 5 - 1:13 AM

Blake Griffin triple-doubled against the Spurs on Saturday with 24 points, 13 boards, 10 assists and four turnovers in 40 minutes.

That's two triple-doubles in this series and Blake's averages are otherworldly. In the seven games, Griffin averaged 24.1 points, 13.1 boards, 7.4 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.4 blocks and 2.7 turnovers. He's playing some of his best ball of his life and he'll have huge numbers against the Rockets as well. The series starts on Monday.
May 2 - 11:29 PM

Blake Griffin logged 41 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 6 victory on Thursday, scoring 26 points with 12 boards, six assists, one steal and four blocks.

He is putting up some enormous stat lines right now. In his previous five, Griffin averaged 24.2 points, 13.2 boards, 7.0 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.7 steals in 41.2 minutes. If Glen Davis (ankle) is out for Game 7, Griffin will likely be near 44 minutes. Although, he looked really tired at times tonight.
May 1 - 12:50 AM

Blake Griffin finished Tuesday's crushing Game 5 loss with a game-high 30 points (10-of-15 FGs, 10-of-14 FTs), 14 rebounds, seven assists, four steals, one block and five turnovers.

Griffin is averaging 7.3 assists per game in the playoffs, tied for fourth behind only J.J. Barea, James Harden and John Wall -- yes, he's ahead of Chris Paul. He's one of three players with at least four playoff double-doubles (Pau Gasol leads the way with five) and the Spurs don't have a player to check him individually. On the other hand, Blake is shooting an abysmal 19.0 percent in the fourth quarter during the series. He'll look to even the score in a hostile environment during Game 6 on Thursday.

Blake Griffin is dealing with a right shoulder stinger and will play in Game 5 on Tuesday.

This is the first we've heard of the injury and it sounds minor. Griffin logged 43 minutes on Sunday with 20 points and 19 boards. He's also posting terrific averages of 22.3 points, 13.3 boards, 7.3 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 steals in the first round.
Apr 27 - 4:37 PM

Doc Rivers called Blake Griffin the second-best passer on the Clippers behind Chris Paul.

When asked why he had his power forward operating for others, Rivers responded simply, "Because after Chris, Blake is our best passer." Griffin averaged a career-high 5.3 assists this season after never eclipsing the 4.0 mark in any campaign prior, and he's averaging 7.3 assists in the first round series vs. San Antonio through its first four games.
Apr 27 - 9:08 AM

Blake Griffin grabbed a playoff career-high 19 rebounds to help the Clippers even their first-round series at 2-2, adding 20 points, seven assists and one steal.

Griffin turned the ball over just once in 43 minutes and continues to be a problem matchup for the Spurs, who don't have a big man able to defend him one-on-one or keep him off the glass. He had 109 touches in Game 4, easily the most of any player on either team, and will play just as central a role during Tuesday's crucial Game 5.
