Whoa that was a tough one to pull out, but the Clippers did somehow despite a 12 point, 5-15 shooting performance by Elton Brand. They did it behind some timely shooting by a flu-stricken Sam Cassell and Shaun Livingston. Shaun also chipped in with big steals throughout the game- you've got to love how he's really reading the D and getting a ton of steals lately. Kaman and Mobley bounced back with solid games, and heck even Singleton got in there and helped out.
But let's not kid ourselves- the team looked pretty bad against a team that's only 17-34. The Clippers were especially awful in the 3rd quarter, and had to rely on Cassell going bombs away to get back in the game. A lucky win I must say, and the way they're playing I'd be ecstatic if they can split the final two road games. That'd be amazing, and if they could win Wednesday against the Hawks at home they'd be one game over .500 going into the All-Star break to heal up. That would be pretty good all things considered.
