The Los Angeles Clippers continued their stellar play at home, winning their fifth straight game at Staples Center, 114-107 over the Indiana Pacers, but the story once again was Blake Griffin. One day after having his 14-game streak of 20-point, 10-rebound games snapped, Griffin exploded on the Pacers for 47 points and 14 rebounds.
The 47 points not only set a Clippers franchise rookie record for points in a game, but also set an NBA season high for points by anybody:
|Most Points In A Game, 2010-2011|
|Paul Millsap||Utah||Oct 27||46|
|Monta Ellis||GS||Jan 5||46|
|Kevin Martin||Hou||Dec 29||45|
|Dwyane Wade||Mia||Jan 9||45|
The game was the 27th consecutive double-double for Griffin, also a Clippers franchise record. He made an astonishing 19 of 24 field goal attempts, and is shooting 52.5% on the season. The Clippers backcourt had another good game as well, as Eric Gordon and Baron Davis did their work on the outside while Griffin dominated down low. Gordon scored 23 points, including three shots from distance, and dished out seven assists. Davis hit two three-pointers, scoring 14 points, and handed out a season-high 12 assists. The Clippers next host Minnesota Wednesday night.
