Well, the good news is the Heat are on the second game of a back-to-back, having just played the Suns last night in Phoenix..Bad news is that D-Wade was on fire last night ,dropping 43 pts...and we all know how bad the Clippers' perimeter defense is...who's gonna try to guard him tonite?

Great, no Kaman now and Baron is a game-time decision

Chris Kaman is now doubtful for tonight's game against Miami with plantar fasciitis in his left foot; but a new player has been added to the injury list.

Baron Davis has come down with the stomach virus that took out Jason Hart and Brian Skinner the other night and will be a game-time decision.

Great news, we lost to every one who played on a back to back.

WE lose by 45pts. The same amt of pts by Wade on us.

Clippers escape and claim their third victory after 16 attempts. Zach Randolph and inconsistent Thornton were the keys. I'll type up more later on.

About the last play, the refs originally made the right call from the angles I saw as it seemed like Wade touched the ref, who IS an extension of the court. Should have been Clipper ball, but I'll take it anyway that I could.

That was not pretty, but it was good for this team. A win is good, but a clutch win is exactly what I believe we needed in order to gain some confidence before we head off in this road trip. We wrap up the month of November with an abismal 3-13 record, and are already 6 games out of the 8th and final seed in the Western Conference. We have a tough 4 game roadie coming up, and I firmly believe we can win 3, but will probably settle for 2, which isn't good, but it'll work.

Player Reports:
Baron Davis: 15/9/5 but a horrid 6-21 shooting in 43 minutes.
Baron was under the weather this morning, and decided to give it a go. Glad he did, his defense was solid, made some great passes, but pulled a Mobley by chucking up long jumpers as opposed to trying to get to the rim.

Eric Gordon: 5/2 in 29 minutes.
EJ got hurt and couldn't return. Liked his constant attacking of the rim, and he played solid D on Wade. I'm pissed he got injured, now we have no shooting guards.

Marcus Camby: 12/12 with 4 blocks in 34 minutes.
Marcus' hustle was a big part of the victory, dude was relentless on the glass and on loose balls. Then throw in his interior connections with Zach, I'm glad we acquired him, and I really hope we keep him for the long term.

Zach Randolph: 27/13 and a clutch trey in 41 minutes.
How great is it to have a PF that doesn't shy away from jumpers in the clutch situations and has great range. Didn't play like the blackhole people said he would be, had a few good connections with the Cambyman.

Mike Taylor: 6/2 in 23 minutes.
What Shackles contributed tonight, doesn't show up on the box score. Intensity, energy, pride is everything he brings. Love how he doesn't shy away from any contact and will get into the paint.

Paul Davis: 5/4 in 11 minutes.
Dude is relentles on the offensive glass, played a key part. When we get the triple towers back, Skinner better not be given much time ahead of Paul. Sure, Brian is a better defender, but Paul is better at every other facet of the game.

Nice win by the Clippers. Maybe got a little lucky down the stretch but they put them selves in a position to win and pulled it off

Wade stole the horrid inbound pass from Baron Davis and was in the air going out of bound. Before he could pass the ball off to Haslem or Marion at half court, would have had an open lay-up, he made contact with the official who was out of bounds. Since officials are an extension of the court, the right call was originally made, but then, after Miami griped and griped, they overturned it giving the Heat the ball with plenty of time to score and win, but the Clippers defense clamped down and said no.

I agree, the Clipps are now putting themselves in position to win games at the end...something they didn't do for the first ten games of the season...the lost by one pt to Philly on the Brand shot, lost by one pt to Denver and Camby had a chance to win it...won by one point Sat. nite...starting to play more competitively and more consistently for four quarters now...hopefully they can continue to build on that

We really needed to win. Finally Thornton plays well and attacks the rim like he should and Randolph was just a beast. Anyone have the status on Marcus Camby?
