Eric Bledsoe made his second career start for the Clippers last night in the team’s win over the Oklahoma City Durants, the first win for the Clips of the season. Bledsoe scored 17 points with 4 rebounds and 8 assists, with only 3 turnovers. (Take that, John Wall!) Bledsoe shot 7-10 from the field including 2-3 from behind the three-point line. Even more impressive outside of the stat sheet, Bledsoe played suffocating defense against OKC’s star point guard Russell Westbrook. Westbrook ended up with 16 points but they didn’t come easy against the man they call Crank Dat Mustard.
As Bledsoe was pulled in the final minute, he earned a standing ovation from the Staples Center crowd.

Go NBA Cats.
