Blake Griffin has won his second player of the week award in the past month.
PF Griffin has been the outstanding player for the Nets since his acquisition from the Clippers this time last year. He leads the team in minutes (35.8), points (23.7) and rebounds (8.6), all of which you would expect for a player who is the centrepiece of the Nets’ inside-dominated gameplan.
However, what is really elevating Griffin’s recent form to a new level is his support play. He is averaging 4.3 assists per game, 130% more than any other power forward or center in the NBA. The Nets are close to the top of their division, but will be serious challengers if center Brook Lopez can leverage the support he’s getting from his partner and squeeze out a few more points each game.
