Are you surprised on how they handled the Clippers?
M: I expected the Clippers to pick up one game, but what I'm most surprised about are how dominating the wins were. I expected to see a much more aggressive Blake Griffin and I think DeAndre Jordan was exposed a bit in that series. Caron Butler also really only made a mark in two of 16 quarters, so I was surprised at that definitely.
J: A bit. I was expecting the Clips to use their size with Griffin and Jordan and expose the Spurs in the middle but I was wrong. Wrong in the sense of how horrible Jordan is offensively and how much work Griffin needs on his game. Lots of work! Of course, Chris Paul and Griffin were hurt and not having Chauncey Billups hurt the Clips but the Spurs did what they had to do and took care of LA.
