“We treat [Blake Griffin] like an All-Star. He can have those kinds of games all the time. We don’t treat him any differently than we would treat Amar’e Stoudemire. Those guys, you have to guard with team defense instead of one guy. He’s talented and explosive. The future’s bright here in L.A.”
– Hornets coach Monty Williams, talking about Clippers rookie Blake Griffin before Monday night’s Hornets-Clippers game. Griffin is coming off a 44 point, 15 rebound, 7 assist explosion against the New York Knicks.
