Did anybody go to the game?




Does anybody have a citizen's-eye-view report of the Clipper win over Utah?  Maybe not.  Monsieur Perrin is conserving his energies for the regular season and keeping the soccer squad tight.  DJ Foster has a few good thoughts up over at ClipperBlog.  I don't have time to break it down myself, but from a brief radio session and a look at the boxscore, it seems like another nice effort for Blake Griffin in particular and the Clippers at large.

DJF mentions the minutes, with Thornton only playing ten minutes.  One thing to note is that I think Gordon played some more backup PG in Telfair's absence, adding to his own minute total.  So without Camby and Telfair, similar to the preseason opener against GSW, the rotations get a bit tricky.

It's strange to be playing against the Lakers, with the opener (and their ring ceremony--aaargh!) coming up week after next.  It would probably be just as well to turn this into a matchup of second teamers, and not show anything.  The stirring preseason victory last year is a bad memory.  The priority now is to keep guys healthy--that's really all that's important, along with getting some run and rhythm, working on defense.  It would be great if Telfair comes back today and Baron sits this one out.

Another DJordan-Bynum matchup, with Blake Griffin as the featured performer, would be fine with me.  And it'll be fun to watch on TV.
