We’re living in the future, y’all. This was about as close we’ll get to slamball (RIP) without trampolines, because the Clippers absolutely put on a dunkfest against former ‘mates Chris Kaman and Elton Brand in a 112-90 win over the Mavericks. We are all witnesses on posters.[...]
We speak abstractly about the razor thin margin between winning and losing in basketball, but rarely do we get such a lucid illustration. I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen a game in which a team has been resuscitated the way the Clippers are Saturday evening. With the game tied 99-9[...]

At Wages of Wins, Dave Berri looks at Elton Brand’s declining numbers, and how they might have cost Mo Cheeks his job: “Brand’s WP48 [Wins Produced per 48 minutes] is 0.075 this season. And last season it was only 0.058. Both marks are below average and not exactly consistent with the [...]
