  • Through Sunday, Blake Griffin had more triple doubles this postseason (three) than the rest of the league combined (zero). He's always been known as a scorer and a rebounder, but he's become a threat as a passer. Per SportVU, Griffin is averaging 70.4 passes per game in the playoffs, trailing only John Wall and Derrick Rose. His 6.9 assists per game are tops among power forwards and centers, and they are generating 17.0 points. (That's more than 2014--15 MVP Stephen Curry's.) Griffin has truly become a threat all over the court.
