Just looked at some statistics and, aside from Griffin, Paul, Jordan, and Redick, there isn’t a single Clipper playing as well as he has in previous seasons. Pretty much everyone’s TS% is down; Collison’s assist rate is down; Dudley’s… everything is down. Jamison, Jackson, Hollins, and Mullens are predictably terrible, but Willie Green is surprising in a bad way.
What is going on? We’re 33 games in. Signal or noise? I thought it was noise early on, but there has to be some signal in there.
Part signal, part noise. The Preventions should be the most consistent for the Clippers, where they are hovering around the 60 PTS range in points prevented. This loss, however, will drop the Clip’s defensive rating by about a point.
Let me throw this in, too. Griffin is the only player who’s statistics are going up, while the rest of the team’s statistics are down. It looks as if the Clippers are forcing Griffin to become the man. Paul seems to have lost his hero ball abilities. Another test designed by the Basketball Gods to see if Griffin has that Michael Jordan-invincibility in him.
Between Emeka Okafur and Andrew Bynum, which big man looks to be the better player to help the Clips? Do you think the Clips will go after Okafur because of him having no rings as opposed to Bynum, despite all his bad qualities and is the most proven player this season? Which is the better risk?
Thoughts from the game, Dudley has got to go.
They need to give it to DeAndre at times.
Redick wouldn’t have made a difference in this game.
Doc better have something up his sleeve.
Don’t forget about the rumor for Carmelo Anthony. The Clips, from what I’m reading on the net, are secretly trying to form a super team without being forced to trade Blake Griffin.
Dudley is starting to make me think of Ryan Gomes
is doc done with the mullens experiment?
Fred, Andrew. You kids play nice, before you break your toy.
