Clippers stronger now than on Christmas day loss to Lakers

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PLAYA VISTA >> The Clippers don’t need to log onto WebMD to diagnose the things that plagued them throughout the first half of the NBA season.Friday, starting guard J.J. Redick did a pretty good job identifying the reasons why the team’s been playing better in 2017 – things that weren’t going as well while the Clippers stumbled to the end of last year’s calendar. “Three things: No. 1, we’re playing harder. No. 2, the schedule is easier. And No. 3, we’re healthier,” Redick said tersely. “All three are self-explanatory.”Those three factors combined to work against the Clippers the last time they faced the Lakers, a disappointing 111-102 loss on Christmas night. The schedule has also lightened up.After a grueling seven games in 10 nights (the loss to the Lakers was game No. 3), the team has played just once on the road, in Sacramento. They also don’t play four games in a week until February.“We did play a lot of games in a small stretch,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “… We understood that. We knew it would be a ton of games. We didn’t counter or think we’d have a ton of injuries during that stretch. There’s nothing you can do about it. But, we have this month to hopefully get healthier and get back on track.”The time, more than the opponents, is how the schedule has eased up on the team, Redick said.“It’s better, he said. “We’re at home. We haven’t left the state. We finished December with eight (games) in 12 (nights) or seven in 10, depending on how you look at it. That’s tough for anybody, especially when you’re not healthy.“And then you don’t play hard to compound that, you suck and you lose six in a row.”The Clippers can’t control the schedule. And, you can’t, really, control the injuries. But, the playing hard? That’s a different thing.“Since the 2017 year came, guys’ mentality is way more locked in, no matter what team you play,” reserve Marreese Speights said. “… Losing those games, it’s not something you really want to be a part of, but we went through it, went through winning and now we’re back winning. It’s just a process, winning and losing.”Playing hard, with a purpose, is what can keep the team on track, helping them stay undefeated this new year. And facing a team like the Lakers, who stole a win when the Clippers were down, should give them even more fuel.“Oh yeah, you want to get one back,” Speights said. “You don’t want to lose to the other L.A. team, so guys are going to be locked in tomorrow. (It’s an) early game, we’re going to go hard and have a whole day to rest after that.”All things considered, Rivers said, the Clippers are in an OK spot.“I’m satisfied,” he said. “I really never know our record, to be honest. I thought we could be a little better, even through injuries. Obviously, we didn’t know we were going to have the injuries we had.“(But) if you think about the injuries and where we’ve been, being where we are is pretty damn good. I’ll take it all day.”NotesFor just the third time in Staples Center’s history, the Lakers, Clippers and Kings will all play in the building on the same day. Following Lakers-Clippers, the Kings host Winnipeg. …Rookie Brice Johnson, who hasn’t played this season because of back problems, is shooting and running on the court, but he’s not been cleared beyond that.center_img “I just think we got our asses kicked,” Redick said.Let’s start with reason No. 3 first. The Clippers, even though they’re still missing Blake Griffin, are healthier than they were on Dec. 25.When the two teams meet again on Saturday, Chris Paul will be back in the lineup, his left hamstring healed after a dicey stretch where he missed seven of eight games.Paul, who had an excused absence from Friday’s practice for personal reasons, is averaging 17 points, 12 assists and 3 steals in the three games since he has returned.Griffin should be the next to return, with late January still the target.last_img read more
