It had been one of the key stats from Games 1-5 of the first round slugfest between the Clippers and Spurs: Blake Griffin was 4-of-21 in the fourth quarter of games. He had been wearing down, his legs weren’t there, and he was 1-of-9 on jumpers because of it.
Thursday night in Game 6, he was 3-of-3 in the fourth quarter and had a monster second half with 18 points. It’s one of the principal reasons there will be a Game 7 Saturday at Staples.
If he has another game like that, the odds the Clippers move on go way up.
