After tonight, I vow not to utter those words for the remainder of the season. In Clipper Nation, it seems this word only serves to torture us. We say these words, then get our hopes up, only to have them smashed by a team missing their superstar anchor.
Is it a jinx along the likes of SP reverse mojo or is a factor of the bball gods toying with our emotions? Whenever we think the Clippers will lose, they win, when we think they will win, they lose.
*on a side note about the game*
With a Hornets team over the foul limit at the 8 minute mark, why were the Clippers settling for jumpers? Why not attack the rim and keep drawing fouls.
If the Clippers had converted on all those Hornet turnovers in the last quarter, they would have been in it.
Al Thornton, let's not let the loss sour on how good he has looked lately. Thanks Al for being the lone hustler tonight.
