Friday nights game vs. the Hornets was a complete disaster Big G wanted out of the game for a 3-4 minute span. You could see it in his face. He even motioned to the bench that he wanted out. He had played the entire 1st quarter and much of the second and mid-way through the 3rd he wanted to be taken out. Sure enough he throws down a monster jam and tweaks his knee. The injury, as we will find out is a sprain of the MCL or a stress fracture. This type of injury happens more to females, but in almost every situation the reason for the unjury is fatigue. Blake was obviously tired and b/c Camby was not avaliable Blake was on the floor more than he should have been in the last preseason game of the season.
Another substitution that almost made me jump through the television was when Eric Gordon was put in the game at the 8:00 minute mark in the 4th! EJ had not played a second and he was obviously cold, but yet the Clippers coaching staff puts him in a meaningless preseason game.
I hope the Clippers coaching staff realizes that this season could change the organization forever. But with coaching moves like these will the Clippers ever not be struck by the injury bug?
