Blake Griffin goes off for 30, and don’t think they’re all dunks (VIDEO)

Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EDT

It wasn’t enough — the Orlando Magic snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 13-game home winning streak. Mostly because the Clippers defense — which has been stout all season — took the night off.

But Blake Griffin had a big game for Los Angeles — 30 points on 15-of-22 shooting.

Here are the highlights. Yes, there were plenty of dunks. But if you think that’s the entire Griffin offensive repertoire, watch again. He has post moves from both blocks, he hit a couple of shots with his left hand, and he can knock down the midrange. He relies a lot on his athleticism, but he should — have you seen how athletic he is? Play to your strengths people, don’t expect Griffin to play like Tim Duncan.
