Blake Griffin scored 21 points in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with three rebounds, one steal and one turnover.
On the down side, he shot just 1-of-3 from the line, which has been a problem in his last four. Griffin did have a positive stretch after the break at the line, so maybe that was a fluke, or maybe not. Still, he's probably going to be the top scorer at power forward and add other stats, as well. Oct 25 - 1:07 AM

Blake Griffin has been accused by a man of attacking a man during an argument over a photo in a Las Vegas nightclub last weekend.

Griffin has not been charged after a 39-year-old man filed a battery complaint with Las Vegas police saying that the Clippers' star slapped him after an argument surrounding a photo. We'll have to await more news on this situation, but it doesn't sound like anything that should preclude fantasy owners from taking Griffin in the late-first or early-second round of their fantasy drafts.
Oct 23 - 10:45 AM

Blake Griffin came off a day of rest and racked up 35 points, seven rebounds, two steals and no blocks on 14-of-26 shooting on Wednesday.

Griffin looked great tonight, but didn't block a shot (as usual), and struggled from the line at 7-of-13. His free throw shooting really took a positive jump last season, and while this line doesn't put us in panic mode, it does give us pause. Griffin is going to be a solid late-first, or early-second round pick in all formats. Owners just have to hope tonight's free throw shooting isn't indicative of what's to come.

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul will both be rested on Tuesday night.

Nothing to see here, folks. It's simply a preseason day off.
Oct 21 - 9:10 PM

Blake Griffin scored 27 points with five rebounds, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

He was 9-of-13 from the line, which has been a bit of a problem in the preseason. Griffin was 3-of-9 on Friday, so hopefully he's just in a funk. His 74 percent from the line after the break might have been a bit of a fluke.
Oct 19 - 1:36 AM

Blake Griffin scored 31 points on 14-of-22 shooting with five rebounds and two steals in Monday's preseason loss to the Jazz.

Griffin struggled vs. Portland on Sunday and the extended minutes were a bit of a surprise, but he was able to get back on track nonetheless. Especially with Kevin Durant dealing with a foot issue now, Griffin is going to be in the mix for MVP consideration and he's a top 20-30 guy in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Oct 14 - 1:29 AM

Blake Griffin struggled vs. LaMarcus Aldridge and the Blazers on Sunday, shooting 4-of-16 from the field for nine points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

Griffin shot 20-foot jumpers with confidence but was just 1-of-10 outside of the paint, and he quickly got into foul trouble vs. Aldridge. Doc Rivers doesn't expect to give his starters many minutes on Monday, in the second half of a preseason back-to-back set, so don't be surprised to see Griffin and other starters rested early and often.
Oct 12 - 11:50 PM

Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 24 points and 12 rebounds in their preseason opener, making 9-of-17 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

Griffin looked very comfortable shooting jumpers outside the paint, and he made his only 3-point attempt, which could be bad news for opposing defenses. He added three assists, two steals and four turnovers in a very active 26 minutes of action, showing no signs of the minor back injury that kept him off Team USA. He's a great PF to target in the second round.
Oct 8 - 2:03 AM

Blake Griffin is happy with his decision to skip Team USA, and said that he had the best training camp of his career over the past week.

"Last year was a good training camp, but everybody was so new," Griffin said. "Now, we have a pretty solid group of guys who know the offense, know how we run things here. We were just efficient." He also downplayed his work on corner 3-pointers this summer, saying, "It's just something I shot this summer just to shoot ... It's not something I'm looking for going into games."
Oct 5 - 3:42 PM

Blake Griffin (back) said he has been working on corner 3-pointers this summer.

Surprisingly, Blake was very good at corner treys last season, making 8-of-18 (44.4 percent). Griffin's offensive game really came on last season and he was still able to take 48 percent of his shots at the rim, which explains his 52.8 percent from the field. On top of that, he shot 74 percent from the line after the break. He is over his back injury and is worth a look at the end of the first round.
Sep 30 - 8:55 PM

Blake Griffin said after Tuesday's practice, "It felt great to be out there, my legs feel 100 percent and I'm good to go."

This is noteworthy since Blake skipped Team USA this summer due to a very minor back injury, but he enters the preseason without any health concerns. He's a borderline first-round pick this season, and is even more valuable if you're not bothered by his sub-par (but improved) FT percentages.
Sep 30 - 6:26 PM

Blake Griffin said he knew about Donald Sterling's racism before being selected by the Clippers, but he and the owner had little interaction.

Griffin discussed how he googled Sterling after the Clippers won the NBA Draft Lottery and "Donald Sterling racist" popped up first. He then read a bunch about Sterling, which wasn't exactly a secret in the NBA world. As for Griffin on the basketball court, he had his best season as a pro in 2013-14 and could flirt with first-round value if he's able to continue to improve at the free throw line.

Blake Griffin pulled out of Team USA's basketball camp due to a back injury, but said on Tuesday that it's not a big deal and that he's ready for the NBA season.

"It's less than a hairline and my back is not fractured. Everything is still intact," Griffin said. "I can still come out here and I can do my workouts and I can do everything I used to do. I just shouldn't be playing and practicing everyday this early." Griffin's skipping Team USA seems more of a precautionary move than anything else. "If I start playing basically two months earlier than everybody else and then go through all of next season and the playoffs, then I'm probably going to put myself in a bad position. I couldn't do that." If you had doubts about drafting him, forget about them.
Aug 5 - 10:27 PM

Blake Griffin withdrew from Team USA camp to rest a small fracture in his back, which is not believed to be serious.

We're not going to tell you not to get worried about a fracture in anybody's back, but owners should exercise a bit of discretion before assigning any long-term concern to this. The injury reportedly isn't serious and it occurred during the playoffs, which may explain some of the (relative) lack of explosion he showed against the Thunder. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne adds that Griffin should make a "full recovery."

Blake Griffin will not play for Team USA this summer at the FIBA World Cup in Spain.

"I want to focus and dedicate 100 percent of my energy on improving and preparing frmo the upcoming season with the Clippers," Griffin said. The Clippers were a bit of a letdown despite seeing Griffin having his best season, DeAndre Jordan breaking out, and Chris Paul becoming a more well-rounded scorer. Griffin's improved free throw shooting makes him a much more fantasy-friendly player to own, making him worth a look in the second round of upcoming drafts.
