Why do you see a supersized photograph of one Blake Griffin? That's because he's been putting up supersized stats this season (playing a wildly unsustainable 36.7 minutes per game!). Though he has not put up double-digit rebounds in the last two games, Griffin still averages over 17 rebounds. Against the likes of Purdue, Davidson, UAB and USC, Griffin tallied 25 points per game. Even after suffering a low blow against USC, Griffin buoyed his team to victory.
However, as he enters conference play and the NBA microscope (speaking of which, our first NBA Mock Draft is due to come out this week) continues to focus, Griffin must improve his free throw shooting. If he does not, we'll be hearing a new phrase about a player who is the recipient of intentional fouls.
Fear not, even if Griffin continues to shoot free throws at around a 60% clip, the man-crush lives on. Watch out, Utah, VCU and Arkansas!
