The Clippers recent additions are all very good offensive players who figured to fit in nicely with interim coach Kim Hughes’ fast-paced offensive plan.
That success on offense continued last night as the team scored 112 point against Phoenix.
Unfortunately, coach Hughes apparently has yet to spend any significant time working on defense, as they gave up 125 points and lost, ending their 3-game win streak.
The most disappointing part of the loss wasn’t the total number of points they gave up to a Phoenix team that is known for putting up points in bunches, but rather that they allowed Robin Lopez to score 30 points against them.
That’s right, Robin Lopez and not Brook Lopez, score 30 points against the Clippers, 19 of them before Chris Kaman was ejected from the game for arguing calls.
So the Clippers start start their 2-game road trip on a loss and have to look to fare better Sunday against the Kings up in Sacramento.
