The Daily Clipper — You've Been Fined Edition

The Clippers took to the road for the first game on their 8-game road trip to play (and beat) the Utah Jazz, 94-89. It wasn't the prettiest win, but it did the job. Check out the latest Daily Clipper for more news stories from around the web.

J.J. Redick Injury: Updates on Clippers Star's Back and Return — Bleacher Report
A bit on J.J. Redick and his injuries. He sat out tonight due to back spasms, but it doesn't seem to be all that serious. Still something worth keeping an ear out for, though.

Notes: Baby’s Presence; Barnes’ Health, Fine; Wilcox On Return — Los Angeles Clippers
Adding a bit on to the articles from yesterday on Big Baby's way to get the team fired up and how Matt Barnes got fined for his actions. Also a talk about Barnes and his health and C.J. Wilcox and his return.

Matt Barnes fine not due to interaction with Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver, NBA spokesman says — ESPN Los Angeles
The League says that it wasn't an interaction with Suns owner on the Matt Barnes incident, but Matt had his own thoughts on the matter.

"As players we're obviously held to a higher standard, I've had to watch myself on that, but I think if we're held to high standards, owners should be held to even higher standards," Barnes said. "When an elder says something derogatory toward me and I respond, I thought it would stay there. It's one grown man saying something to another grown man. I'm not going to run and tell, but the fact that he or someone around him told [the league] it's crazy."

A couple of recaps of last nights game:

This wasn't the biggest load of links, but it should hold you over, and as always, I'll leave you with a question or two.

  • Players are obviously given a lot of responsibility on the way they behave, but do you feel owners have a bigger cushion?
