Locked on Clippers, January 25th 2017—Enough Bad Losses

The Clippers can’t take care of business against bad teams.

In today’s new episode of Locked on Clippers, I mostly focus on last night’s game in Philadelphia and the long-term picture of the Clippers’ season as Houston continues to struggle. The Clippers couldn’t take advantage of Houston’s losses last week because Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were both out, and they won’t be able to take advantage of them coming up because the schedule is road-heavy and stacked—including two match-ups in the next week with the Golden State Warriors. Overall, last night’s was just another in a string of regrettable bad losses to inferior teams—even given that it was Griffin’s first game back, and Doc Rivers was ill, and the Sixers are better this year than in years past, they still built a 20-point second-half lead. They have to close games like that out and save the small wiggle room for losses that they have left for tougher games.

P.S.—I know there’s been some audio issues in the last week or so. I’m a novice when it comes to sound engineering and mixing so a lot of this is guess and check. Yesterday, I experimented a bit and seemed to clean it up, and I got good feedback. Let me know how today’s sounds overall, compared to yesterday, and compared to last week when there was a bad buzzing background sound.
