I think seeing from tonight's game we can conclude again about what Steve had talked about before...I think it was the rebounds. Clippers 41, Portland 51. I totally love having Blake out there, but he just isn't a typical PF. This is where we missed Camby. It's funny because he was having a blast out there tonight and stole a bunch of rebounds when Blake mistimed his rebounding. Our energy was there and we just couldn't finish...again.
Its true- we need more help from the wings to snap some rebounds. EJ only had one tonight. That's awful. Although he got into foul trouble early, he was able to prove to us that he could still play and he did improve from TEAM USA. But 1 rebound? Really? Even my mom can get at least 5 just from a pickup game and she's Asian.
Anyhow. Tonight was fun nonetheless. I'm on the same boat as Steve here...and everything else. I can certainly just HOPE that the shots will fall down eventually down the stretch.
Personally speaking, Clips Nation Night was a blast. I don't know about the rest of ya'll but I liked my team despite the fact that we lost in our semi-final game. It was great meeting some of you, and sorry I can't really remember your names and I'm sure you can't also. I'm definitely looking forward to our next time. It was such an honor to meet my fellow Clipper Bros AND sis :)
