Pace



Watching and re-watching game one made one thing very apparent. The looks they were getting when pushing the pace were much better than those they were getting in the half court. It is however a double-edged sword. They also turned the ball over 3 out of four possessions at one point in the 4th quarter.

The Clippers played at a very slow pace throughout the regular season and were at the bottom of the league in this category as Chris Paul prefers to play at a more deliberate pace.

I think increasing the pace against Memphis would be advantageous. The Memphis starting bigs are fairly slow compared to DJ and Blake. Forcing them to run and get back on defense will also wear them out . Memphis plays a very good half court defense which made it tough for the Clippers to get good shots. Pushing the ball should result in good open looks for our shooters before the defense can get set.
