Clippers lead 19-14 with 5:13 remaining in the opening quarter. Marcus Camby leads the way with 11 points and we are playing real well on offense. Suns lack of D helps as compared to the Lakers, along with finally hitting shots. Baron seems in better shape and Camby is everywhere.
Clippers lead 30-24 at the end of the first quarter. Shooting an impressing 65% from the field and have 10 assists on 13 made field goals. Baron playing real well, much better than last night. We should continue killing them in the paint since they have no inside presence. Even Amare is staying away from the key.
Clippers and Suns playing a fun, high paced game and are tied 53 at the half. Clippers, surprisingly, are the ones who are controlling the pace with solid defensive play leading to simple points. Shooting near 56% also makes it harder for the Suns to run n gun.
Camby is having a great half. 18 points, 6 boards, 3 assists, 3 blocks, 2 steals on 8-10 shooting. Also loving the fact that EJ and Boom have combined for 10 assists to only 3 turnovers. Baron also has 2 blocks.
Solid start to the 2nd half. Baron is really giving it all out there and Kaman is really crushing the boards. Posting up Baron against Nash is paying dividends as he keeps finding open people. 8 assists for Boom.
Gordon struggling from the line is a shocker, hope those missed points don't come back and hurt us.
Suns trailed by as much as 10 in the third quarter, but have cut it to two as the Clippers lead 79-77 at the end of three. Clippers are 15-26 from the free throw line, including 0-3 on technical attempts. That, along with giving up 9 offensive rebounds need to be fixed.
No reason we should have lost, none what so ever. One key missed call, but can't rely on getting every call. Pathetic. Nothing less, nothing more. A couple of plays come in mind. One being when Thornton didn't get back in the third, which led to an easy three for the Suns. Another being Gordon missing a chippy lay-in.
Kaman is a damn good center. 18/16 last night, 22/9 tonight on 10/17 shooting. Camby had a great game, 23/11 with 3 steals and 3 blocks on 10-15 shooting. Baron had 12/12 with 5 steals. If he can start knocking down shots, he will be doing real well.
