Oklahoma City Smokes Clippers In Griffin’s Homecoming

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Jeff Green scored 22 points, Kevin Durant added 21 and the Oklahoma City Thunder spoiled Blake Griffin’s return to his hometown by beating the Los Angeles Clippers 111-88 on Tuesday night.

Griffin made a run at his first career triple-double but came up two assists shy. He followed his slam dunk title and rare All-Star appearance by a rookie by amassing 28 points, 11 rebounds and eight
assists, but the Clippers sorely missed him when he was out of the game.

Los Angeles gave up a 16-0 run with Griffin on the bench at the end of the first half with three fouls, and he was out again when the Thunder put it away early in the fourth quarter.

The Clippers fell to 2-7 on their 11-game road trip that was interrupted by the All-Star break.
