Long-time Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin has surpassed 10,000-points in his career with the team. He accomplished the feat against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center.
The 28-year-old is the first known player to accomplish this since the team has been located in Los Angeles.
Griffin had 36 points in the Clippers 115-104 win. In seven seasons with the team, he’s averaging 21.5 points, 9.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and a steal per game.
He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. However, after being taken with the first pick, he missed the entire season and his official rookie campaign was during the 2010-11 season.
Randy Smith had 12,735 points in team history. Yet, his statistics do not count as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers since he did not play for the team in L.A.
Smith played when the team was the Buffalo Braves then relocated with the team as a San Diego Clippers player.
The Clippers have been in Los Angeles since the 1984-85 season.
