Blake Griffin Grabbed 1 Rebound Last Night

This might fly under the radar because the Spurs thumped the Clippers, putting Lob City in serious jeopardy of being swept. But it's surprising nonetheless. Blake Griffin played 37 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday -- the most on the team. He scored 20 points, which is solid.

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.
  • Griffin's line was actually kind of interesting, though: 20 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block. Consistent across the board.
  • Kind of related to the rebounds: The Spurs outscored the Clippers in the paint by a 50-18 margin. And it seemed like every time I looked up, a Spur was getting an easy lay-in
Does it mean much? Probably not, but it's interesting. At this point, though, the Clippers' problems run much deeper than Griffin securing one rebound. But still ... one rebound.
