Disturbing (and accurate) recap from Yahoo

Yahoo sports' NBA blog does a fairly entertaining recap of games every day.  Today's recap of yesterday's Clips game had several interesting tidbits.  Not only is it totally accurate regarding Baron, it had this to say about Kaman:

Chuck Hayes(notes) did well to hold Chris Kaman(notes) to 5 for 16 shooting. According to the Clippers broadcasting crew, not only did Kaman not know Hayes was going to guard him before the game or that he was starting, Kaman didn't know Hayes was 6-6. Wow.

Seriously?  I'm not even sure who to blame here.  Hayes isn't a rookie.  How does Kaman not know that he's 6-6?  How does he not know that Hayes has been starting at the 5 for the Rockets all freaking year?  What's going on here?

So CLEARLY Kaman wasn't prepped to deal with Hayes.  He wasn't told how to take advantage of his height advantage, nor was that part of the game plan. 

Kaman, who unlike most here I actually like, must be a complete idiot not to know he's facing Hayes.  But the coaching staff also clearly didn't make Kaman's height advantage over Hayes any kind of focal point in their game plan.  Did they even have a game plan?  Is there a scouting report?  Again...WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?!
