Yes but it's hard to trust it after 7 games.

Jamal has averaged 18 ppg combined over the last 9 seasons. I expect his shooting percentages to dip a bit but considering the great passers he's playing with and stars that command double teams, he's not doing anything out of the ordinary.

BTW that's not true.. the Clippers went to Portland. Clippers are top 5 in all measurements of schedule strength including SOS and RPI which are the best ones. Point is sure they had a home intensive schedule but they also played more contenders than just about anybody else.

http://espn.go.com/nba/stats/rpi/_/sort/SOS

Spurs
Grizzlies
Heat
Lakers
Hawks

All playoff teams Clippers have waxed so far and none of them were particularly close. Heat cut it to within 7 last night at the last second but were down 15+ a lot of the 4th quarter. Spurs lost by 22. Grizzlies and Lakers by 9. Hawks by 13. None of the Clippers wins have come down to the wire because the Clippers seem to go apeshit in second half of games.

Lakers are contenders due to their potential, not their actual level... they don't belong to that tier yet.

I prefer the Grizzlies, but both teams are nice to watch and offer a great show when tehy met each other.

Beating Portland in their house is a good away win. This isn't quite the same J Craw. He's shooting better(thanks to finally doing shooting drills) and his role is a little different. Yeah he's coming off the bench like before, but normally he's out their with scrubs and it's all on him to score. Now he has Bled to take some pressure off him and Barnes and Odom. He can pick his opportunities, look for "better" shots. I expect him to keep up his level of play.

Best Frontcourt in the league.

If their healthy come playoff time, they could probably beat anybody.

Gay and Randolph may be the #1 scoring options, but the best player, the player the team runs thru, their most important piece...my boy, my fat boy.

Deep teams with no defined, undisputed go to scorer.
You're comparing a team like the Nuggets that have no one that can create for themselves (Iggy can't, Galinari is inconsistent, Lawson jumper and shooting overall this year sucks, Faried needs to be fed) to a team like the grizzlies (Conley can shoot and drive as good as any pg in the league, Marc Gasol who can get a basket anytime by himself, Z-bo no explaining necessary and Rudy Gay who can elevate and shoot over anyone) late in the game.

Great comparison

Having 4 people who can create for themselves at any time legitimately is a bad thing according to CF86 you should only have one

I dont buy into this idea of someone having to always carry the label as the #1 option. Didnt Steve Blake hit a game winning 3 in the playoffs against the nuggets last year?

a team like the grizzles doesnt need a sole number 1 option. They have confident players who are willing to take the big shot. That team has been constructed amazingly well. I could only imagine how crazy its been getting on beal street following their home wins this season

Its actually pretty easy seeing how you could throw a stone from the entrance to beale. But i think what you are saying is moving along beale after you get on it. Yes it can be a little hectic. Tonight, on a friday against the knicks, it should be nuts after the win
