The momentum for the Clippers was halted a week ago when they ran into the red-hot Warriors, and then followed by a Rockets game without Paul where Harden served up his season high cooking. The following game, we played a tough Grizzlies team where nothing came easy, and it was by far the Clippers sloppiest game this season.
Tonight’s game against the Mavs resembled that Grizzlies game, where nothing came easy, and everyone played out of character. It was a chippy game the entire time, and Blake was getting fouled more times than what was called, which made him more worried about the refs than his usual aggressive play.
Tonight’s loss leaves us losing 3 out of the last 4 games, and tomorrow is our back to back game against Phoenix. Could be a game where we right the ship, or it could be that trap game that digs us deeper into this tiny, early season hole.
