Blake Griffin leaves Game 3 with bruised right big toe

Blake Griffin leaves Game 3 with bruised right big toe

"We had a couple of days being pretty pissed off", Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin told reporters after scoring 24 points.

The LA Clippers lost in the first round of the playoffs past year mainly because Chris Paul and Blake Griffin sat against the Blazers with injuries.

Down by nine early in the 3rd quarter and no end to the misery in sight, things for the Clippers went from bad to worse when they watched Blake Griffin hobble off the court after injuring his toe late in the 2nd quarter.

BORIS PERSPECTIVE: Snyder was recently quoted in talking about his veteran forward Boris Diaw, "He has many interests this time of year and one of them is the playoffs".




Back in the third game of the season, the Jazz didn't score for first two minutes and only one basket in first three minutes as they fell behind 7-3 and eventually lost to L.A. 88-75. Marreese Speights, starting the second half in place of Blake Griffin, added 9 points and was a +12 in his 19 minutes played. The Clippers did it largely from inside the arc, as they had just six 3-pointers.

"Yes, it's a must-win situation for us", he said.

Griffin had X-rays at the arena that were negative and the Clippers planned to re-evaluate him later Friday night. "We want to make sure we come out with a lot of energy tonight". He walked away from the court just 36 seconds later. We should have more news tomorrow. Paul passed Wilt Chamberlain to rank No. 30 on the NBA's career playoff assists list. Hayward's 21 first-quarter points was a franchise playoff record for any one quarter. Griffin helped fuel the interior dominance that led to a 60-38 scoring advantage in the paint and a 47-39 edge on the glass as the Clippers exploited the absence of Jazz center Rudy Gobert (knee), who remains questionable.
