Another big game for Blake Griffin in Clippers’ chippy win over Mavericks

There was one reminder after another, DeAndre Jordan’s teammates showing why the prized center was widely considered to have made the smart decision this summer.

Blake Griffin kept scoring, Austin Rivers kept persisting and Wesley Johnson kept wowing Wednesday night at Staples Center as the Clippers soundly defeated the same team they had beaten in free agency.

The drama involving the team Jordan famously spurned after a five-day commitment had ended long before the Clippers completed a 104-88 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in their home opener.

Jordan appeared to be one happy Clippers camper as he watched the entire fourth quarter from the bench alongside his fellow starters, cheering and laughing as his teammates built leads as large as 28 points.

Clippers Mavericks seemed like a fair assessment on a night Dallas owner Mark Cuban zinged his newfound foe by telling reporters “the Clippers are the Clippers.”

That didn’t seem to be a bad thing Wednesday.
