During the second quarter of Saturday nights Wizards-Clippers matchup in Washington, D.C. John Wall ran coast-to-coast looking for an easy layup and Blake Griffin wanted none of it, blocking Wall’s attempt and sending him to the ground.
The game looked like a rookie showcase, featuring Blake Griffin, Eric Bledsoe, and Al-Farouq Aminu of the Clippers against John Wall, Trevor Booker, Jordan Crawford, Kevin Seraphin, and Hamady N’Diaye of the Wizards.
Blake Griffin finished with 26 points (8-of-17 FG, 10-of-11 FT) and 17 rebounds in 30 minutes of action, while Eric Bledsoe had a near triple-double in 22 minutes off the bench, scoring 23 points and grabbing eight rebounds and dishing six assists. Al-Farouq Aminu contributed with 10 points, four rebounds, and two steals in 10 minutes off the bench.
Not to be outdone by Griffin who is leading the ROY race, John Wall had 25 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds in 42 minutes. Trevor Booker, who got the start at the four spot, added 13 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes. Newest Wizard Jordan Crawford struggled from the floor going 4-of-16, but finished with 16 points off the bench. Seraphin and N’Diaye went scoreless.
