3-0 in a TOUGH 3 game week. Proud of the Clips, even for beating the Lakers. The focus is now going forward.
Games for this Week: (3-0) 17-18
January 4th vs. Blazers ---> Won 105-95
The Big Payback, as James Brown used to say it. After losing up in Portland less than a week before, the Clippers bounce back with a victory over the same team at home.
Statistically, the score should have been 125-115, as both teams shot over 50% for the night. However, thanks to that ridiculously slow pace the Clippers run sometimes, the score was kept under 100. Martell Webster had a big game, and so did Andre Miller, but Brandon Roy was held in check all night. And so was Jerryd Bayless.
Ricky Davis, Craig Smith, and Sebastian Telfair came up big for the bench in their limited minutes, and should be the reasons for winning this game, along with defense.
Player of the Game: Marcus Camby

January 6th vs. Lakers ---> Won 102-91
Hurts too much to write about this. But I am proud of the Clippers to play like they did. But this is a Clipper blog, not a Laker blog.
Player of the Game: Baron Davis
- 25 pts, 10 asts, 5 rebs
January 10th vs. Heat ---> Won 94-84
The Clippers contained Dwyane Wade, played excellent defense on every other heat player (except for Michael Beasley), as the Heat only shot 39% on the day.
The Clippers won the rebound battle by 13, and Marcus Camby equaled the amount of rebounds collected by Jermaine O'Neal, Udonis Haslem. Quentin Richardson, and Michael Beasley PUT TOGETHER.
However, the turnovers were a problem again for the Clippers, as they had 18.
Player of the Game: Chris Kaman
- 22 pts, 14 rebs, 2 blks
Honorable Mention: Marcus Camby
- 6 pts, 17 rebs, 2 asts, 1 blk
