Blake Griffin: Los Angeles Clippers All-Star Forward

Former Oklahoma basketball star Blake Griffin has made quite an impression on the NBA in his rookie season. The Los Angeles Clippers star is averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds per game, and is poised for a bright future.

Clippers end losing skid with 86-76 win over Magic

Sports | Updated: Wed, Feb 6, 2013

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Los Angeles Clippers know what it's like to take the floor without key players. A matchup with the equally hobbled Orlando Magic helped them rediscover what winning feels like. Eric Bledsoe had a career-high 27 points, including 19 in the second half, and the Los Angeles Clippers used a big third quarter to secure an 86-76 win over the Magic on Wednesday night. The victory ended a three-game losing streak for Los Angeles, which has three games remaining on its eight-game road trip. "We were in a little slump," Bledsoe said. "We were in the games, playing good, playing tough, but we just couldn't finish the game. ... So it was a huge win for us."
