LOS ANGELES, CA - Los Angeles Clippers’ guard Eric Gordon was named the Western Conference T-Mobile Rookie of the Month for games played in January.
Gordon, who edged out Minnesota’s Kevin Love for Western Conference Rookie of the Month, ranked first among rookies in scoring for the month (21.9 ppg), fourth in assists (4.1 apg) and first in minutes (41.1 mpg). In addition, the first-year guard led all Western Conference rookies in free throw percentage (.907 %). Gordon scored a career-high 41 points (13-28 FG, 6-6 FT) vs. the Thunder on Jan. 23, the most points ever scored by a Clippers rookie, besting Al Thornton’s 39-point performance on March 29, 2008.

Gordon becomes the first Clippers rookie since Shaun Livingston in April, 2005 to earn NBA Rookie of the Month honors.

To celebrate Gordon’s big month, Clippers fans will receive 10 percent off of all Eric Gordon t-shirts and jerseys for 10 days (Feb. 2 through Feb. 12) at ClippersStore.com.

Here is a recap of Gordon’s month:

Eric Gordon, L.A. Clippers:

Jan. 4 vs. Detroit: Tallied 31 points, two rebounds and three assists in an 88-87 loss to the Pistons.
Jan. 6 @ Dallas: Scored 32 points and added six assists in a 107- 102 loss to the Mavericks.

Jan. 30 @ Cleveland: Registered 27 points, seven assists and two steals in a 112-95 loss to the Cavaliers.
In support of a season-long effort to better the various youth communities in Phoenix, the Host City of NBA All-Star 2009, T-Mobile will donate $20 per point scored on behalf of the players named the T-Mobile Rookies of the Month. For the month of January, T-Mobile will donate $7020 on behalf of the Clippers’ Eric Gordon.

Other nominees for the Western Conference T-Mobile Rookies of the Month were Memphis’ O.J. Mayo and Marc Gasol, Minnesota’s Kevin Love, Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, Portland’s Greg Oden and Sacramento’s Jason Thompson.

Well done EJ, well deserved and well earned.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)
