i gotta say: i caught the second half of the clippers game last night and all joking aside, this is a great team to watch. fourth road game in 7 nights; you could really tell they were burned out. but they tightened up the defense in the fourth quarter and won pretty easily. they've got a lot of role players that fit together really well. odom is really coming into shape. they can win even when paul and griffin have off nights. of course, an off-night for griffin is still pretty WTF.i said before the season started that the clips were going to be the surprise of the first half of the season and the lakes wouldn't start coming together until after christmas. at least i was half right.
it was even cooler in real time. the game was still kind of close -- iirc, about 8 points and 3 minutes or so left. he blocks that shot and does his glower, then somehow beats everyone down the floor to jam on the other end. 6 point lead turned into a 8 point lead. next play, another steal and that second slam off the barnes backboard pass. if detroit had scored on both plays, it would have been a 4 point lead ... as it was they were safely ahead. but ballsy play.
And he can hardly go to his left. Still . . . he had a nice run and I wish him well.
Against the Knicks he actually went to his left very well, multiple times. That has been his issue but he seems to be working on it. I think Felton "psyched" himself out in that game. He says all the right things about being happy for Lin and how everything worked out for both of them but you know he wants to have a game where he scores 30 on Lin. I wouldn't be surprised if Lin gets traded before the deadline though.
