LAst Night's Action: Spurs Kick Clips
San Antonio Spurs defeat LA Clippers 97-88. Baron Davis was out of the game with a knee problem and has admitted that he was out of shape coming into the season. Well Fatty McFat didn’t look like he was needed that much since this was the first game the Clippers didn’t lose in double-digits. With backup point guard Randy Foye also out for his second game with a strained hamstring, the point guard duties fell to rookie Eric Bledsoe who ended up with nine points and three assists in 40 minutes.
Eric Gordon did most of the distributing with 11 assists while scoring 23 points of his own. Wünderkind Blake Griffin added 17 points and eight rebounds while Chris Kaman had 18 points and eight rebounds.
Nonetheless, the Clippers still lost joining Houston as the only teams in the Western Conference to still be winless. Moral of the story: Never EVER pick the Clippers to win anything. Optimism with the Clippers is like thinking the Tea Party will propel America forward.
