For the first month and a half of the NBA season, Eric Bledsoe sat on the Los Angeles Clippers bench and watched Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of the team deliver highlight after highlight. On Saturday, it was Bledsoe's turn. Whether it was a thundering one-handed slam on a drive down the paint, one of the two lobs he tossed, or the off-the-backboard pass from Paul that he took and threw down, Bledsoe, as he has over the past week, made a big difference in the Clippers' 109-94 victory over the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center.
