There isn’t a game on the schedule where Eric Gordon doesn’t come in handy, but against Boston’s ball pressure in the halfcourt, EJ’s absence is especially costly. The Celtics’ defense focuses on cutting off large swaths of the floor with hard traps. The best way to alleviate that pressu[...]
The Clippers’ exceptional defensive effort Sunday afternoon in Washington features only two blemishes: When the Clips run perimeter traps at the Wizards’ guards, the rotations onto Antawn Jamison aren’t prompt. Jamison is one of the best bigs in the league at finding mismatches or [...]
Gordon, who suffered a sprained left big toe last night in the win over Chicago, is listed as questionable for tonight’s game at Denver. The Clips will be without Sebastian Telfair, who is back in Los Angeles getting treatment on his strained groin. If neither is able to play, the Clippers wou[...]
