TLTJTP: Clips Rise to 5th, but Lose Shamet to Injury

Rob and Shap dive into this soft patch in the Clippers schedule and the wins the team has reeled off during it. Plus, more love for Shai and Gallo, as well as discussion of the Landry Shamet injury.

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at New York Knicks Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

We can’t believe the Clippers are in 5th place right now, but maybe anything is possible in one of the more enjoyable seasons in Clippers franchise history. The team has played some weak teams recently, but they’ve fattened up their record on them, running just as hot as they did earlier in the season. Granted, there have been some lulls in these games, the Clips have taken care of business and are in a very nice place. The team has played well, but the bench has dragged with Wilson Chandler, who is mostly washed. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continues his improved play and Danilo Gallinari might be in the best stretch of his career season. Landry Shamet is injured, but it feels like a pretty variable injury, and it’s encouraging that he’s already questionable for the Wolves game. Who will start in his stead, and will Doc shorten the rotation as a result? All this and your Twitter questions on the latest episode of the Lob, the Jam, the Podcast!
