The Clippers avoided a 4 game losing streak, and Vinny Del Negro spared himself a couple days of speculation about whether or not he will keep his job.
Chris Paul had a spectacular game and first quarter, scoring 19 points and 13 assists for the game. Blake Griffin chimed in too with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. Randy Foye had a spectacular game from the 3 point line (4 for 8), Caron Butler aded 12 points, and Nick Young (16 points) had something to say from the bench as well.
It was a much better shooting night overall for the Clippers who shot 50% from the field, and they were able to knock down their free-throws tonight as well, which had been an area of concern for them recently.
If the Clippers want to keep climbing the West’s standings they will need to keep this momentum going all the way through the rest of their home-stand; and if they don’t, then Vinny Del Negro will have some explaining to do.
