For the Clippers, If It's Not One Thing, It's Another

We're already 66 games into the season, and the great three big experiment is still awaiting it's first significant real world test.  Yes, Chris Kaman, Zach Randolph and Marcus Camby appeared in the same game on November 26th.  But that was Randolph's first game in a Clipper uniform, and Kaman only lasted the first quarter before shutting it down for what turned out to be an eternity.  And yes, the three appeared in 92 of a possible 96 big man minutes against the Cavs a week ago, but that was Kaman's first game back, and Camby wasn't even supposed to play in that game.  So it's fair to say that the Clippers haven't had all three of them healthy in the same game, even if they've technically had them together two whole times.

The last couple of games Randolph has been out of the lineup putting his father to rest.  So finally, with Randolph back with the team, Camby relatively healthy and Kaman rounding into shape, the Clippers will have their three bigs (if not their big three) together.  So what happens?

They're facing the Warriors, who would like nothing more than to see the Clippers try to defend Stephen Jackson with Zach Randolph.  It's the age old question - who adjusts to whom?  But with the Warriors playing at home, if they get running and get the crowd going, it's going to be tough to play the big guys those 96 minutes.

Stay tuned.
