It was a fitting way to end a disappointing game. Four 3-pointers consecutively missed, intermitted with offensive rebounds and collective sighs among the Staples Center crowd, leading to the Clippers’ fourth loss in a row.

The Clippers needed someone who could guard on the wing and run in transition. They needed someone long. Not someone kind of long, but so[...]
Today, ESPN.com unveiled its Western Conference edition of #NBApicks, in which 100 “experts'” aim to predict the records of each NBA team. (Experts must be in quotes when it includes the three of us). The result: an even 50 wins for the Clippers. What do you guys think? High, low or just[...]
