With two days off between games, we've got lots of time to keep thinking about the one that got away.
- After the exhilaration of building a 12 point second half lead, losing it, and then regaining the lead in a crucial late game possession, followed by the ultimate heartbreak of losing at the buzzer, it's easy to forget that the Clippers weren't particularly sharp in the first half Wednesday night. They fell behind 20-12 in a lackluster first quarter, and were very lucky to get out of the quarter down by only two. They weren't much better in the second, but still managed to grab their first lead of the game just before halftime. The team played significantly better in the second half; well enough to win in fact, although they did not.
