Dallas @ Clippers – Jan 18th

I was looking forward to the alleged new & improved “Lob-City” Clippers, but, I saw the Chris Paul was sitting in his suit on the sidelines. Oh well. I intended to turn it off, but then, was captivated after a few minutes. This was going to be an entertaining game anyway.

Chauncey Billups proved to be an excellent acquisition for the Clippers. I’ve liked him ever since the Pistons beat the Lakers for the title back in 2004. Who needs Chris Paul?

some oh-wow moments for me

  • 3:04 left in the first quarter, a steal, dribble down court, and toss up into the air for Blake Griffin to slam dunk
  • Odom, good veteran, fakes out Blake, and gets the foul 5:15 left in third quarter
  • THREE official clock stoppages in the last twenty seconds…hmmm…not sure if accuracy in calls trumps entertainment value, especially for a regular season game, move it along officials, move it along
