Good read! Sounds like they know what the team has gone through this year and are giving props.
"The Clippers have played like something very close to a title contender despite near constant rotation turmoil. They've missed J.J. Redick and Chris Paul for long stretches, they've gotten zippo from their backup big men, and about a month ago, they demoted Jared Dudley from the starting lineup in favor of Matt Barnes. But they're 38-20 after Sunday's thrilling win over Oklahoma City, with a point differential - plus-6.4 points per 100 possessions - about identical to those of both Miami and San Antonio. The Clips have been a borderline top-10 defense after a sieve-like first few weeks, and the defense has held at that level when the Blake GriffinDeAndre Jordan duo patrols the front line - a reversal from previous seasons, when the team's starting lineup was unreliable on defense."
