16 three pointers to match 16 championship rings of the Lakers....coincidental, but outright tells you outrageous "no defense" team the Lakers has become..also tells you how good the Clippers could be with a healthy Billups. Double teaming Blake who took over in the inside in the first quarter, opened up the 3 C's (Caron,Chauncy and Chris) who had plenty of time setting up themselves for those big 3's. Barnes and Crawford followed suit and even Willie made one! With 26 (27?) more games to go and barring any injury, I think VDN should start choosing the other 3 (or perhaps 4) players who would compliment the starters in preparation for the playoffs. Bledsoe, Crawford and Barnes would be more like it with LO and Hill supplementing the 3 getting limited minutes. I hope VDN would not insist on utilizing the 10 man rotation as we can see now the traces of deterioration of the 2nd unit.
Finally, while it is really hard to suffer waiting for 20 years to win a series against the Lakers, it also sweet to see their invincibility destroyed by the once lowly Clippers!!!!
