Jim Cavan examines good, bad and bewildering rotations for a half-dozen NBA teams over at Grantland. Here is his take on the Clippers:
Clippers: Of the seven Clippers lineups with at least 10 minutes of collective court time logged, five of them have produced a net positive rating (the difference between a team’s offensive and defensive efficiency) — all of them in double digits.
With so many new faces — and two new starters in J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley — the Clips are bound to botch a game or two. But if they can conjure a crunch-time unit that can both make their free throws and protect the paint, Doc Rivers won’t have to worry about covering up his Staples-mate’s banners.
