CLIPPERS RECORD NIGHT BY THE NUMBERS
The Clippers established a number of franchise and team postseason records in their Game 2 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Here is a look at some of the most prolific:
- Their 138-98 victory was the largest margin in franchise history, surpassing a 25-point win over the Phoenix Suns on May 10, 2006 in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinal series.
- They scored 138 points, blowing past the previous franchise high of 124 points by the Buffalo Braves. The Braves reached the number twice in 1974, once on Apr. 18 at Philadelphia and again on Apr. 28 versus Boston.
- Blake Griffin’s 35 points on 13-of-17 shooting broke his previous career postseason high of 30, which he scored against Memphis on May 7, 2012. He went 10-for-15 in that game. Griffin also scored 14 points in the first quarter and the third quarter. Both quarters tied the Clippers postseason record for points in a quarter set by Vladimir Radmanovic on May 12, 2006.
- DeAndre Jordan blocked five shots. He tied Elton Brand’s Clippers postseason record for the second straight game.
- Darren Collison had a postseason career-high 10 assists (previously was nine).
- The Clippers went 32-of-35 (91.4 percent) from the foul line. It set the Clippers postseason record, previously 88.9 percent set on May 1, 2006 against the Denver Nuggets.
- They had 29 assists, breaking the team record of 28 set on two occasions (last: May 18, 2006 versus Phoenix).
- They had 15 steals, breaking franchise record of 14 which had been done twice.
- They made 12 3-pointers, breaking the franchise record set four times since 2006.
