Video: Blake Griffin scores 51 at pro-am
Blake Griffin made his Seattle debut special.
The three-time NBA All-star scored a game-high 51 points on Saturday, which included 12 crowd-pleasing dunks. He led his team to a 136-122 victory at the Jamal Crawford Summer Pro-Am.
Crawford finished with 49 points and a handful of highlights.
Aziz N’Diaye provided resistance against Griffin. However, the former Washington center also drew boos from the crowd after he delivered hard fouls on Griffin on three straight possessions to prevent a basket.
N’Diaye had 19 points and former UW guard Venoy Overton added 11. Mike James, who played at Lamar University, scored a team-high 24 points and former Gonzaga guard Steven Gray added 18.
However, the game’s biggest surprise was Tramaine Isabell. who poured in 20 points in 23 minutes. The 6-1 guard helped Lakeside High to the 3A state title game last year and gave a verbal commitment to play at Washington State.
