Eric Gordon earned a very well-deserved Western Conference rookie of the month honor today.
Gordon, who edged out Minnesota’s Kevin Love for the honor, ranked first among rookies in scoring for the month (21.9 ppg), fourth in assists (4.1 apg) and first in minutes (41.1 mpg).
In addition, the first-year guard led all Western Conference rookies in free
throw percentage (.907 %). Gordon scored a career-high 41 points (13-28 FG,
6-6 FT) vs. the Thunder on Jan. 23, the most points ever scored by a
Clippers rookie, besting Al Thornton’s 39-point performance on March 29,
