Against all odds, the Clippers are playing great basketball. When you lose your star players, it’s hard to tell how the rest of the team will react, but it seems the Clippers have embraced the challenge. With the length of injuries to Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers really had no choice but to re-evaluate the team and the Jackson/Mann/Morris/Zubac lineup is… capable. They’re playing close games against some of the best teams in the league and getting it done elsewhere.
I don’t need to harp on the mess that’s going on in Houston right now, but we all know the look of a team with no will to win. It sounds cliche but the Clippers have heart and should beat Houston HANDILY, as many this season have.
