The Statmonkey of the Day: March 23, 2011

It was supposed to be Chuck Hayes’ debut in the Statmonkey universe.

However, who invited Blake Griffin to crash the party?

Chuck Hayes spent 38 minutes collecting a triple-double.

Blake Griffin spent 51 minutes doing the same thing.

While Hayes got the triple-double minus the overtime advantage, Griffin just produced more. In the Houston Rockets’ 131 to 112 win over the Golden State Warriors, Hayes exploded with 13 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists, and 2 steals. In Griffin’s first triple-double though, he had 33 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a block. This was pretty much a battle for Top Rookie honors and the right man won as Griffin’s LA Clippers defeated John Wall’s Washington Wizards, 127 to 119.

Kris Humphries, Dwight Howard, and Chris Kaman unleashed damage as well.  

The Statmonkey of the Day is Blake Griffin.

As consolation for his triple double goodness, this is the picture of Chuck Hayes.

Game over.
