Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - SPREAD ON A LITTLE MAYO
I love how everyone's no-selling the fact that the Clippers are on a 10 game winning streak and are tied with the Knicks for the 2nd best record in the NBA after OKC who are on an 11 game winning streak.
While Blake Griffin is having statistically the worst year of his career and Caron Butler is looking like he's done, there's still been a lot of positives for this team. Chris Paul is still the best PG in the NBA, DeAndre Jordan is starting to play to his potential, putting up 10/7/2 in 25.8 MPG, he's a double-double guy per36. Another reason for the Clippers superb play is their bench. Bledsoe, Crawford and Barnes are proving to be quite the trio for the Clippers, Bledsoe is showing the potential to be a star, Crawford is playing at a 6MOY level and Matt Barnes is one of the most underrated acquisitions of the offseason. If Grant Hill & Chauncey Billups can come back healthy and still be able to produce like they were last season and if Blake Griffin can get out of his slump and get it going, these guys are a scary team to face in the playoffs. But I do have sneaky suspicion that Blake Griffin peaked in his rookie year, hope I'm wrong on that for the Clippers' sake though.
