It was a mixed bag for Blake Griffin in the first half Wednesday night at Phoenix. He scored nine points, but made just 1 of 5 from the field; he was 7 of 8 from the free-throw line in 16 minutes. He also had four rebounds, three assists and a steal.
The Clippers trailed 62-60 at the break.
Griffin missed Monday’s game at Minnesota after playing just six minutes in Saturday’s game at Houston because of back spasms. He had been a game-time decision Wednesday.
