Blake Griffin scored 29 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in a 130-88 win over the Suns on Saturday.
Two games, two wins and two 29-point game games. This is also the biggest win the Clippers have ever had against the Suns -- the Blazers can say the same thing after Wednesday. On top of the increased usage rate at 31.9, the Clippers are running at about nine possessions per 48 minutes faster this year, Griffin is taking more 3-pointers, and BG has been super efficient with a 67.4 true shooting percentage. Although, he may have gone up against two of the worst defenses in the NBA, but Griffin definitely has top-10 upside in all formats. Oct 22 - 2:16 AM

Blake Griffin scored 29 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Lakers during a 108-92 victory on Thursday.

Sure, this does come with a Staples-size grain of salt against the Lakers, but Griffin looked great in the post Chris Paul era. He had a 112 pace for his minutes out there and he attempted six shots from deep as the offensive focal point. Coach Doc Rivers has given plenty of indications he wants Griffin to grow even more, including playing him at the five "a lot." If he can stay healthy and make free throws, he's set for a magnificent season.

Coach Doc Rivers said he wants to use Blake Griffin at the five "a lot" during the season.

Rivers said the Clippers haven't gone with that look too much during the preseason, and they worked on that group at practice on Wednesday. He also said he likes how the Clippers can go small against certain teams, and they didn't really have that luxury last year. Whatever the case, Griffin is set for a monster year as long as he can stay healthy.

Blake Griffin said he didn't have any issues with his toe during the preseason.

"I haven’t had any problems," Griffin said. "I haven’t sat out any practices. I haven’t had any restrictions. I didn’t really anticipate that. At the beginning of the season, I met with probably four of the top foot surgeons in the United States and I never anticipated sitting out training camp." Griffin's going to have a larger role in the offense this season and looked really good in the preseason with 17.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 triples in just 23.5 minutes per game. Fantasy owners who took him in the third round should be feeling confident.
Oct 16 - 10:29 AM

Blake Griffin scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He's about as close to 100 percent as he can be, which is a welcome sight after there were rumors he wasn't going to be ready for camp during the summer. Griffin is handling the ball more than ever and he's scoring in all types of situations. His per-game stats are likely going to be outstanding, but of course there's the injury risk on BG. He's still an option in the third round.
Oct 13 - 12:56 AM

Blake Griffin scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting during Tuesday's exhibition, adding four boards, three assists, three steals, one 3-pointer, one block and six turnovers in 23 minutes.

Griffin also went 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, and he could be in for a monster season as one of the primary creators on offense for the Clippers. His health is somewhat of a concern, which will cause him to drop on draft day, but he's fully capable of producing top-20 value so he'll be one of the more alluring risk-reward, early-round targets.
Oct 4 - 10:20 AM

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) hit 6-of-10 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs to finish Sunday's exhibition with 18 points, three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.

Blake opened the game with a pair of 3-pointers, but he missed his next three attempts. An improved perimeter game was a big storyline for Blake last year, too, but he finished with a modest 0.6 threes on 33.6 percent from deep. It's something we'll watch closely this preseason.
Oct 2 - 1:20 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said that he plans to use Blake Griffin in a variety of ways this season, including as a "facilitator" on offense.

In addition to facilitating the offense, Doc also hinted he'd occasionally play Griffin at center. "There will be times when Blake is the tallest guy on the floor," coach Rivers said. "We want him to be an aggressive player, an attack player." With Chris Paul no longer in Los Angeles, the Clippers will run their offense through Griffin, who should see a spike in usage rate and has a chance to put up monster numbers this season.

Sep 30 - 9:00 AM

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.
Jul 19 - 1:41 PM

Blake Griffin plans to reach an agreement on a five-year, $173 million deal with the Clippers, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

And we're off. The Clippers adding that fifth year was likely the last piece of the puzzle, so Griffin now gets his monster payday at age 28. Things will obviously be very different for Griffin because his prime years have been Chris Paul, but now he'll have to learn with off-ball guys. His upside is massive for fantasy, but his toe injury could keep him out to start the season. He's still an early-round target in all formats.
Jun 30 - 9:30 PM

Blake Griffin has canceled meetings with Phoenix and Denver, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

The report adds it sounds like the Clippers are the favorites, assuming a wildcard team doesn't swoop in late. Reading between the lines, it sounds like the Clippers may have finally committed to a fifth year for Griffin. If so, he'll be the franchise's centerpiece and would be in for a bump in stats.
Jun 30 - 9:24 PM

The Thunder plan on "chasing" Blake Griffin in free agency, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

It's nice to have dreams, right? With OKC paying approximately $90M combined to Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams, it's hard to see what the Thunder has to offer that could entice the Clippers in a possible sign-and-trade deal. A homecoming story always tugs at the heart strings, but we're not considering this scenario likely to come to fruition, especially when we've heard next to nothing from Griffin's camp about a desire to head home.

The Clippers plan to informally meet with Blake Griffin's agent on Friday.

After losing Chris Paul on Wednesday, Griffin is the team's top priority. The oft-injured, 28-year-old forward could receive a five-year offer from the Clippers, but there's a chance the team may not want to have that fifth year because he'll likely be well past his prime. Griffin is going to meet with the Suns on Saturday and could receive some interest from teams like the Celtics and Thunder.
Jun 29 - 9:20 PM

Blake Griffin is scheduled to meet with Suns on Saturday, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

The Suns could offer Blake a four-year, $130 million max deal, and the team would get the 28-year-old forward on the back end of his prime. Griffin is also not 100 percent and there's a report he could be out to start the season due to his toe injury from the playoffs. With the Clippers possibly going into a rebuild mode, Griffin may be looking to move from the only team he's played for so far in his career.
Jun 29 - 5:12 PM

According to ESPN's Michael Eaves, Blake Griffin (toe) may not be ready for the start of the season and could be out until December.

He suffered an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe in Game 3 of the series against Utah and had surgery on May 1, but we haven't heard much about his rehab since then. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said she has heard otherwise, as her source believes Griffin will be ready in time for the opener. With Chris Paul joining the Rockets, the No. 1 priority for the Clippers is to re-sign Griffin and the franchise is reportedly ready to offer him a five-year max deal.
