Undefeated Clippers to Test Streak Against the OKC Thunder

Undefeated Clippers to Test Streak Against the OKC Thunder

LOS ANGELES The players on the Clipper bench, the ones who saw their playoff dreams shatter in a matter of minutes a season ago, were immediately taken back to that heart-sinking place. "When we play well defensively, we're hard to beat". Reserves Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton have been serviceable, but neither can pull off a convincing Paul impersonation. "Apparently I guess they talk a lot of trash now, but we'll see how that goes". They'll be expected to donate their fines to a charity of their choosing under a program Doc Rivers announced earlier this month as a way to reduce the team's high number of technicals. "Hopefully, he's going to be alright".

While Paul should be back from his latest injury in plenty of time for the playoffs, it still could prove costly for the Clippers in terms of seeding. Chris Paul is averaging 17.8 points and 12.3 assists per game since his return, and the Clippers are destroying teams when he is on the court.

The loss of Adams is significant for a Thunder team that relies on him so much defensively. With Paul, Griffin, and Redick approaching free agency this summer, the Clippers could look to trade them for assets, but at the moment, all three players' trade value would likely be at a minimum, simply due to their health and impending free agency.

As a team, the LA Clippers are both 7 in scoring, 108.8 ppg, and in points allowed, 102.2 ppg, for a +5.8 margin; 5 in the National Basketball Association.

"I play the same way every night", he said. "But I've still got a job to do".

Around the league, the Warriors stint away from the top spot didn't last long, as they seem to be the consensus number-one squad thanks to uneven weeks from the rest of the top dogs. He is a very good defender and made second-team all-defense in 2016.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was honored before the game with a video tribute and a choir at a halftime. But even though Durant isn't on the Thunder anymore, it sounds like he will always look back fondly on his days in Oklahoma City, especially when he played on the same team with Harden and Westbrook. They will stay on the road before returning home to host the Los Angeles Clippers on January 28.
