DOUBLE TROUBLE: Jazz forward Paul Millsap was dethroned as the NBA's reigning double-double streak champion Wednesday by power forward phenom Blake Griffin. The Clippers' rookie had 16 points by halftime and collected his 10th rebound midway through the fourth quarter to notch his 20th consecutive double-double.
Earlier in the day, Millsap didn't seem too distressed that his mark of 19 consecutive double-doubles was finally in danger of being surpassed. The Jazz power forward had been the only player in the league to rack up that many double-doubles in a row since 2006.
"I forgot it's up for grabs," Millsap said. "It's going to be kind of hard to keep that from happening."
Especially with Griffin tearing it up like he has been while averaging 21.2 points and 12.4 rebounds his first year.
"You just try to do the best you can with him," Millsap said. "He's very athletic. He's going to go after the glass every time. ... He's a special talent."
