Oh, and he grabbed one rebound. A 6-foot-10 power forward grabbed a single rebound.
A few comparisons are after the jump.
- This was the first time in his career Griffin finished with a single rebound and was also a career low. Prior to Thursday night, his worst effort on the glass came against the Suns on March 20, 2011, when he grabbed two rebounds.
- Nick Young finished with two rebounds in 18 minutes. Nick Young!
- Eric Bledsoe: Also two boards in 18 minutes.
- Reggie Evans was on the floor for 11 minutes and managed to collect four rebounds.
- In all, eight Clippers snagged more rebounds than Griffin and the ninth player to see time, Mo Williams, also finished with one rebound.
