https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoqqwL784nM It took a season-ending injury for Clipper Nation to understand how important Chauncey Billups was to a consistently functioning lineup. While Billups’ shooting percentages dipped markedly this year (and he didn’t adjust the volume of shots to c[...]
This wasn’t the heartbreaker that the first game against Minnesota turned out to be, but it may have been an even more painful loss. ClipperBlog talks it out below. 1.1. Tonight’s defensive issues — Usual Clippers lackluster D, or something different? [...]
The jury is still out on K-Mart’s effectiveness within the Clippers’ different five-man units (6.86 PER), but it’s clear he’s already had an immense impact on the defensive side of things. All (statistical) signs point to him being the sixth or seventh best Clipper this seaso[...]

There’s no doubting he’s better as a power forward – his 12.5 PER at the four is eons better than his paltr[...]
Where would the Clippers be this season without Mo Williams? Aside from maybe Eric Gordon, no one saw his place on the Clipper depth chart take a bigger hit from the Chris Paul trade than Mo. One day he we the starting point guard, the next he was the second combo guard off the bench. Denied even [...]
Randy Foye is in a tough spot. Through no fault of his own, Foye is firmly on track to become the whipping boy of this year’s Clippers. Does he have a bad attitude? No. Before Billups’ injury, he played workmanlike backup minutes without a peep. No, Foye’s sin, like Keith Bogans[...]
