<STRONG>BLAKE SHOW TAKES ON THUNDER IN OKC</STRONG></P><STRONG>&#160;</STRONG></P><STRONG>Would Blake Griffin be nervous coming home? So much expected. Could he be tired from a busy All-Star weekend? </STRONG></P><STRONG>&#160;</STRONG></P><STRONG>No. Or shall I say NO! At least not his start. He put OKC&rsquo;s two power forwards on the bench by the middle of the first with two fouls (Jeff Green and then Serge Ibaka). &#160;When Ibaka hit the pine at the 6:32 mark of the first quarter, Griffin&rsquo;s numbers looked like this:&#160; Ten points and five rebounds. Most impressive so far is his crisp passing. </STRONG></P><STRONG>&#160;</STRONG></P><STRONG>After one it&rsquo;s 23-23, Blake with 14/6 and KD with 13/3 and a steal. Blake just picked up his second and takes a seat.</STRONG></P><STRONG>&#160;</STRONG></P><STRONG>Sam Bradford in the house. Big OU contingent here to see Griffin.&#160;Joe Carter in the house. World Series MVP and All-World good guy. Toast of Millwood. And brother Fred can put the best shine on your car you&rsquo;ve ever seen. Former Sooner Jermaine Gresham in the house. The Bengal TE could play a pretty mean game of bball at Ardmore HS. </STRONG></P><BR/>
