Blake Griffin suffers hip flexor injury to go with his collection

Blake Griffin’s defensive rotations have not exactly been lightning quick all season, but in Game 2 he seemed to be moving even slower while the Spurs pass the ball around like it’s a Globetrotter’s game.

I assumed it was the sprained left knee he has been playing through since last series. Or the ankle he tweaked in Game 1 against the Spurs. Or the variety of other bumps and bruises he has suffered this season.

But it also could be the hip flexor he suffered in this game, reports the San Antonio Express-News. Griffin was grabbing his hip at points in the game.

The Clippers defense has been exposed this series. Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and the entire Clipper front line seem to be chasing. Not sure how that is going to change before Game 3 Saturday.

    LOL, 1 rebound in a playoff game.

    The Clippers front line looks like the walking wounded going up against what is, arguably, one of the best teams in the league playing at 100%. Courage, grit, and determination didn’t win the game for them. They may have lost the game, but I certainly don’t consider them losers.

      absolutely, they’re fighting and giving it all they got. That’s all you ask for as a spectator, just play all out, and that’s what they’re doing so i give ‘em credit for that. the spurs are looking super-strong though

    The Clippers are winners this season, regardless of this series’ result. That first round with Memphis was one of the best series I’ve ever seen. They’re growin up before our eyes, and it’s a beautiful sight.

    What people will never realize, what they can’t fathom, is that San Antonio isn’t lookin super tough right now. They’ve looked like this all season. Being a Spurs fan in Austin, I had the pleasure of watching all but 2 of San Antonio’s games this season. Everyone should be scared of this team. They dominated the regular season without Manu Ginobli for most of the season, and with Tony and Timmy resting a considerable amount. And now they’re at full force. Watch out. They are a force that seemingly no one can reckon with.
