Grade 2 sprain. Maybe another month. They miss his size. Even with Lyles back who will move into a front line position that will eat at Len and McGee’s mins because he can pass and very well.

Sluggish 1st for sure but this old Iso-ball Clippers team is probably one of the better matchups you can ask for on a SEGABABA. Just can’t let the deficit swell too much after having to work that whole 2nd half last night doing just that

The mechanics of his shot make me sound stupid sitting alone on my couch…HJP: “oops that looks way short by Sasha”.
Sasha: “Swish”.

His shot has a really high arc, but it’s a pretty shot leaving his hand.

I think a big part of that comes from how he has basically no follow through. The second it leaves his hand, his arms are down.

This effort is terrible. No energy. No sense of urgency, just going through the motions.

Another 20+ point comeback on back to back nights is probably asking too much. They looked sluggish from the jump and you just hoped they could keep it close until they maybe found their stride, but the last half of the 2nd quarter just cooked them.
