There has been a lot of Rickey Rubio love around here lately and almost universal disdain for Blake Griffin's game. Griffin, the consensus # 1 draft pick across the board had a great game at Oklahoma State leading his team with 26 points and 19 boards, one massive blocked shot and 38 minutes of great hops, good speed and handle, huge heart and team leadership.
He shot 11 field goals making 9 of them and all the shots from the field were made while he was doubled and sometimes triple teamed.
He's a good passer with good court vision. I don't know what his wingspan is be he made some unreal rebounds and had very good anticipation for where to position himself to get all those boards. He got his 16th double - double for the season and his 10th 20/15 to lead both Paul Milsap and Tim Duncan who each had 9 in their college careers. Through this point of the season he's averaging 22 points and 14 boards.
So, who watched the game tonight? If you did, can you see a way that Geoff Petrie could fit Blake Griffin onto the King's roster? Oklahoma beat the Nets tonight meaning that based on the way they are playing it's going to between us and the
Wizards Bullets fighting it out for last place and a wealth of ping pong balls.
