San Antonio 115 - Clippers 90 - It was fun for two minutes before the half

Aside from a 10-0 run over 150 seconds at the end of the first half, this game ranged from bad to apocalyptically bad for the Clippers. 

I'm not going to pretend that the Clippers had a real chance to win this game had he played it differently, but the moment MDsr fielded a lineup of Craig Smith, Rasual Butler, Ricky Davis, Eric Gordon and Baron Davis with 10 minutes left in the game, I had a very, very bad feeling.  What is the point of that lineup?

The Spurs immediately score 14 straight, doubling a surmountable lead and icing the game.  This process took less than 3 minutes.

I'm taking the train home from Staples tonight.  I'll post this quickly to get something out there.  Maybe I'll update it, maybe I won't.  This one was ugly.  Really, really ugly.

Funny thing is, when they made the second quarter run, and then opened the third looking competitive, I was going to compliment them on sticking with the game in a tough situation.  I was going to say that last season's Clippers team would never have fought that hard after falling behind by 24.  But all of the good work they did in the second was wasted after the fourth quarter disaster.
