NORMAN — Stephen Curry got his. And it was a bunch.
Blake Griffin eventually got his, too.
Curry wowed with a career- and game-high 44 points for No. 21-ranked Davidson, but Griffin and the No. 12 Sooners surged behind a big second half to win 82-78 in the second round of the NIT Season Tip-Off before an estimated 9,118 at Lloyd Noble Center.
Griffin scored 21 of his team-high 25 after intermission and added a career-high 21 rebounds to help send the Sooners to Madison Square Garden for the semifinals of the tournament next week.
Griffin and Curry, representing 40 percent of the Associated Press All-America first team, delivered on their star status with 19 NBA scouts in the house and several members of the Thunder in the seats — all hoping to catch a glimpse of the next big things.
Afterward, two scouts had this exchange:
"That was a treat.”
The reply: "Truly outstanding.”
Curry, who sat more than six minutes of the first half with foul trouble, scored 30 of his points in the second half. He fired up 30 shots, making 13, but six were 3s and he was perfect on 14 tries from the foul line.
Griffin, once he engaged on the offensive end, was nearly unstoppable. He made seven of 11 shots from the floor and 11 of 12 from the line.
