Q's Quote: After a very successful road trip, Clippers come back home to host King James, Boobie Gibson and the rest of the defending eastern conference champions Cleveland Cavaliers. Ruben Patterson should play, but I wonder how much playing time he'll get as I expect it will be limited. We will finally get to see a legit match up in the center position with Chris Kaman going up against Big Z. Hope fans show up to the game and make some noiseeeeeeeeee. Whoever goes, tell me how it was. Let's go Clippers!
Cavs extend their lead 34-27 thanks to two steals by LeBron, one of which resulted in a nice slam, the other he got a put back after slowing things down. Clippers need to keep possession of the ball and box out, too many easy rebounds going to the Cavaliers. Let's go!
At the half, Cavaliers lead 50-44. It's been a pretty exciting game thus far and has basically been a game of runs. Cavs are murdering the Clippers on the boards, although the stats don't show it. Drew Gooden has pulled down 12 rebounds, did he drink Kaman's water? Maggette on the other hand has 18/6 for the Clippers on 5-9 shooting. Both teams have more turnovers then assists[7:9 for Clips, 6:8 for Cavs]. Clippers need to attack the whole and play some very solid defense.
It was very sad too see Gooden get 17 boards. I wonder if Dunleavy has put Thomas through any box out drills? I counted at least 8 times where Tim Thomas looked at the ball hitting the rim hoping for the ball to bounce to him and not even attempt to box out
