Blake Griffin Bleeds, Is Not A Dunking Automaton

In case you were wondering, when Blake Griffin is cut, he still bleeds like everyone else:

That was courtesy of a collision with Manu Ginobili in the second quarter. According to Vinny Del Negro, Griffin's tooth went through his lip in the process.

Joey Crawford, the veteran ref whose seen it all, responded with an "ok", telling the Clippers coach his star would need to be taken out of the game if the bleeding didn't stop.

Griffin eventually went into the locker room for stitches, but he's expected to be ready to go for the second half. While he has a huge edge in athleticism over any of the Spurs big men, Griffin has once again been held in check offensively, scoring only 7 points on 3-8 shooting in the first half.

With the San Antonio bench firing on all cylinders, LA will need a lot more from a bandaged up Griffin in the second half.
