More from the Clippers: In defining the move, Dunleavy said, “I’ve had several conversations with our owner (Donald T. Sterling) concerning what we think is best for the team overall. We have discussed the possibility of my concentrating only on Basketball Operations. That option has always been ava[...]
Here’s a piece I wrote recapping the game for ESPN Los Angeles. A couple of additional points, before going to the video of the final possession: It’s a strange game. Strange insofar as the Clippers, whose collective eFG on jumpers is 42.3 percent, drained 11 of 17 shots between 16 feet [...]
