The Most Frustating Kind of Win... Los Angeles Clippers Bounce Back and Destroy San Antonio Spurs

Admittedly, I’ve consumed four pitchers of IPA at Hinano’s (a Venice bar, institution if you will) and watched our Clippers paste the Spurs 106-84; however, as I stumbled out inebriated and, dare I say, elated, I still had this niggling feeling accompanying me on my bike ride home: that is, how can the Clippers beat one of the arguably best teams in the NBA, while dropping two straight against two of its worst (Cleveland and Golden State)?

It’s as if they are teasing us…

Diondre Jordan blocking shots and scoring, Blake dunking like a madman, and Jamal Crawford being, well, Jamal Crawford, this was a win that I truly felt should have had the Clippers at 5-0. It was that dominating. In fact, why is it that the Clippers have dominated certain playoff teams, yet lost to squads not likely to even sniff the post season?

I guess this will be that kind of season. Perhaps Vinnie Del Negro can somehow get through to his troupes that EVERY opponent matters, EVERY possession matters, and EVERY minute matters.

For now, I’ll sleep soundly knowing that there’s this kind of potential, and if it’s ever realized fully, a championship banner will be hoisted at Staples in a quite unfamiliar color…
