Over at Bleacher Report, I took an in-depth look at three of the Clippers’ best plays. Click here to read the full piece. Here is an excerpt:
L.A. now owns the best field-goal and three-point percentages in theNBA, ranking third in points per possession. Since that 5-4 start, it is averaging 116.2 points per 100 possessions, a figure which blows out the rest of the league.
Early in the season, the Clips seemed to have lost what they had last year: the No. 1-ranked offense. Now, for whatever reason, much of it is back. But even when L.A.’s ball movement was lagging, when Griffin was settling for jumpers and when shooters were missing from outside, Doc Rivers’ squad was still running similar plays to the ones that carried it to the top of the league a season ago.
Amazingly, the Clippers’ best play isn’t a Jamal Crawford 32-foot, pull-up three (even if that is by far the most fun one).
