The Los Angeles Clippers do not look particularly good right now. They had a nice wire-to-wire win against an uninspired Hornet team this week, but were otherwise handled with ease by the West-leading Nuggets and lost to a bad Pistons team at home. Blake Griffin came back and played inspired basketball, Reggie Bullock hit timely threes, and Andre Drummond 20/20’d, but that Pistons team is not very good, and the Clippers losing at home to them was disappointing. Although the Clippers are in the thick of things in the standings, the slow starts are becoming more and more concerning. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is continuing to lose minutes, while Avery Bradley continues to exist. A very nice positive from the Pistons loss was Tyrone Wallace, who really shined in a featured role, particularly in the 4th quarter. And of course, with Blake showing off and Tobias Harris being quite unimpressive, the guys will touch a bit on the Blake Griffin trade, a year later. Lots to talk about on the latest episode of the Lob, the Jam, the Podcast!
