LAst Night's Action: Clippers, Kings Win Big
LA Clippers defeat Portland Trail Blazers 105-95. Chris Kaman once again came up big with 20 points and Marcus Camby grabbed 15 boards to lead the Clippers over the infirmed Trail Blazers. Going into the fourth quarter the Clippers led by only four points. They went on an 18-6 run holding the Blazers scoreless for four minutes during that run. Kaman has been dominant this season scoring 20 or more points in 10 of his last 11 games. He is currently the Western Conference’s leading scoring center.
LA Kings defeat San Jose Sharks 6-2. With the Kings bumbling along, the Shark had won eight consecutive games allowing two or fewer goals in regulation in their last ten games and not allowing a first period goal in their last nine. The Kings did away with all that nonsense in one fell swoop. Michal Handzus, Oscar Moller and Anze Kopitar each scored first period goals. Drew Doughty notched four assists in their demolition of the Sharks. The Kings are now seventh in the conference with 53 points, eight points behind NHL leading Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks.
