Published Add your comment

If it wasn't for the small matter of Kevin Durant and LeBron James, Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin would be a huge contender for this years MVP honors.

Unfortunately for Griffin however, KD and King James play in their own stratosphere us mere mortals cannot comprehend and players like Blake have to settle for more meek awards.

As such, Griffin has been nominated as the Western Conference's player of the week award, for his fine displays and consistency as the Clippers won every single game they played to push the winning streak to 11 with a W over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

During the week, Griffin averaged 27 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.5 steals while playing an average of 36.9 minutes a game.

He scored at least 20 points in all four games and currently has scored 20-plus points in 26 consecutive games.

Griffin is also holds the league’s current Player of the Month, claiming the title for his fine performances in the month of February.

Griffin is averaging 24.3 points per game to go along with the 9.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.1 steals for the season.

Al Jefferson of the Charlotte Bobcats won player of the week in the East.

The Clippers and Griffin will be looking to improve their streak to 12 straight in tonight's contest against the Denver Nuggets.
