Clippers win eighth straight
The Clippers are the hottest team in basketball right now, winning eight straight games against the likes of the Thunder and Rockets. They've been so good, in fact, that J.A. Adande thinks it's time to include Blake Griffin in the MVP race, formerly a two-person competition between Kevin Durant and LeBron James. Griffin definitely looked like an MVP last night against the Suns, scoring 37 points and only missing two of his 16 shots. With a healthy Chris Paul dishing assists to Griffin, the Clippers could be a force in the playoffs.
