Wow- welcome back Sam Cassell! Not only back from the injury but back from the 3 point shooting slump. Sam hit all the clutch shots (including 2 huge 3's) in the 4th quarter and enabled the Clippers to separate from the the Hornets in a tight game. Vintage.
Welcome back Cat Mobley also- he scored 8 straight points in the 2nd quarter to prevent the Clippers further from their 10 point deficit. EB was solid as usual with 18 and 11, and good job by Thomas too with 12 in only 17 minutes, including a pair of 3's.
It was also nice to see Singleton get some meaningful minutes- he came in the 2nd quarter and did a good job on D & had a pair of big offensive rebound put-backs. I like that lineup out there with Cassell, Livingston, Brand, Singleton, and Mobley- good mobility on defense and movement + outside shooting on offense.
