When Washington came to Los Angeles they played Blake Griffin physically with Nene and Kevin Seraphin, holding him relatively in check (in what was a close game). I was curious to see how Griffin and the Clippers would counter that.

We’ll never know.

Griffin was a late scratch for the Clippers with a hamstring issue for the Clippers. Griffin has been battling a sore left ankle, too, and this is the second night of a road back-to-back during the long Grammy trip, not a bad idea to give him a night off.

But that snapped a streak of 197 consecutive starts for Griffin.

Well, except the Clippers are 1-2 on the trip and could use a win.

Chris Paul remains out for the Clippers with a bruised knee.
