i agree, but it's DJ who is hurting. but not crippled. and he's got this thing for playing 82 (i believe he's got the longest streak of not missing games in the nba). watch him in timeouts, etc. and he's got a noticable limp. and the last two games he has not been his usual self (against the warriors he had his calf wrapped).
At least the rest of the Clips game isn't too bad, only one post season team. Nuggets, Lakers x2, Grizz, Nuggets and Suns. They just can't blow the lead in the end and hopefully that can result in DJ getting some rest.
i'm a clips homer. and i still think that if dj is healthy, jamal gets healthy and griffin and paul stay healthy, if they can get one more bench player to step up, that they can conceivably win the west. and if they can win the west, i guess, they can take it all. it's a stretch, but in most years, the championship goes to the best team that stays healthiest and, maybe most important, gets the most breaks during a couple key games.
