Griffin ended with 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and three steals over 35 minutes during Friday's 117-109 win over Denver.

Griffin has been one of the most productive rookies in the league this season, and while he was entrusted with a more significant role due to the absence of De'Andre Hunter (hip), he stepped up and finished as Atlanta's second-best scoring effort behind Dejounte Murray. Griffin made his second start and posted his season-best scoring mark, and his performances have improved significantly over the last few weeks. The former Duke star has scored in double digits in six of his last eight appearances.
