No one seemed more disappointed than Blake Griffin following the Los Angeles Clippers' 96-92 loss to the Mavericks Monday night.
One of the NBA's brightest young stars committed a turnover and missed five of seven free throws in the final four minutes at American Airlines Center.
"It's on me," Griffin said of the loss. "I missed shots. I missed free throws. I missed an easy layup. I missed a dunk. Turnovers."
It was obvious that he was beating himself up pretty badly, talking in a quiet tone that made him difficult to understand. Griffin genuinely looked like a player who had let his teammates down.
