Cool write up and video. Thanks.
Not a Clipps fan obviously but I watch a lot of 90s games and I liked the early 90s Clipps (1992 and 1993 specifically) from the few games I have seen.
^Full game 1993 Rockets vs Clippers game 5 of the 1st round. I saw this on a NBA TV a few years ago and I still remember it to be a great game.
IIRC, Rockets were up double digits early in the 4th but Clipps came back with their pressure defense and forced turnovers. Rockets had trouble getting the ball to Hakeem and he was swarmed everytime he did get it. They eventually won on a Vernon Maxwell three.
The entire series was pretty good. Larry Brown actually made some adjustments for once like putting Manning on Hakeem when Roberts got in foul trouble and pressuring the Rockets guards since their ball handling was weak and they didn't break a press very well. Harper had a good series being match up vs Garland and Jackson did his usual thing.
Danny Manning didn't pan out but he was still pretty good when healthy. Talented and versatile but a little streaky.
Jackson could pass and post guys up. Threw out a shimmy here and there.
Also, can't forget about Roberts. He was a big dude. Shaq said he was the strongest guy he faced. They had a nice partnership at LSU. He had some decent post moves and could score when established position. His only problem was foul trouble.
