When Jason Hart leaves the game in the first half with elbow tendinitis, Fred Jones – a player who wasn’t in the league a week ago – becomes the Clippers’ first-string point guard. Jones doesn’t play poorly, finishing with a +9 on the night, as the Clippers hang around against a healthy, talented [...]
How bad are the Clippers down the stretch? Al Thornton ties the game at 86-86 with a couple of free throws at the 3:31 mark of the fourth quarter. On the next Sixers possession, they go into Thaddeus Young on the right block against Al Thornton. Both Thornton and Young are natural 3s, but both pla[...]
Any Baron Davis-Paul Davis high screen/roll with :18.3 remaining and the Clippers trailing by two will invariably draw a double-team to Baron. That much is certain. Paul Davis is not a threat outside of 15 feet and, besides, it’s safe to assume that Baron will take the final shot even if Pau[...]
Today’s game tickets feature the likeness of Jason Williams, who retired before ever playing a game for the franchise. Despite the cognitive dissonance, the Clippers’ current state of affairs has a familiar air. Key players have suffered injuries with no certain timetables for their returns[...]

There’s little to say about this one other than it’s very apparent that the Clippers’ starters hit a wall early in the first quarter. Coming into tonight, the Clipper starters have averaged almost 43 minutes per game each over their past six games. Add that eye-popping number to [...]
It’s fair to say that the Clippers perform best in the halfcourt when Baron Davis is looking to pass the ball, rather than chucking shots from beyond 20 feet. In two of the first three Clippers’ possessions in the first overtime, Davis distributes twice to Marcus Camby for two FGMs [a p[...]
This games warrants a close look, and we’ll do that later when the Clippers broadcast emerges from its wormhole 90 minutes behind the rest of the universe. This is an odd game in which the gutsiness pendulum swings wildly. On one hand, an Indiana team minus Danny Granger, Troy Murphy, Marquis[...]
