Lawler's Law overruled!



With more than 3 minutes to go Lawler's law took effect with the score 100 to 91 Clippers. In less than 3 minutes, Blazers took the lead and held the Clips scoreless for more than 3 minutes!!! At the other end, the Clippers defense was nowhere to be found giving Portland an open door to score at will. With no other shooters on the floor, the Clippers offense became too predictable with JC taking most of the shots which were all defended well by Portland. As suggested by TV announcer Smith, another shooter (perhaps Green or Hill) could have spread the floor leaving Blake more room to drive to the basket. Of course, VDN will not do something like that because it was never done before. CP3 usually is the first option with Blake or JC the next options. Although JC's last shot was clear, the other 3 shots prior to that were toughly contested with no other shooters standing in the perimeters. Barnes was having an off night, Bledsoe is never a shooter and LO could not be depended upon as far as scoring is concerned. Thus, Smith observation(although after the fact) made a lot of sense!
