Looking good: Clipper Darrell announced before Wednesday’s game that he would lose his trademark suit as a boycott to his team’s early season performance. Thanks to Eric Gordon’s breakout night (27 points), the work of Blake Griffin and Ryan Gomes up front and a woeful 6-for-24 shooting performance from Kevin Durant our guy Clipper Darrell can put his clothes back on.
Sound the Alarm: Now that the Clippers have finally won a game, you can turn the alarm off. The whole Baron Davis drama will rage on after Eric Bledsoe‘s 17-point, eight assist effort against Russell Westbrook. The Clippers don’t have much room for error, so they need all their main pieces in sync to get things straightened out.
HT’s Take: The Thunder have shown signs of weakness, particularly when their backcourt reserves don’t get into a good flow. James Harden and Eric Maynor combined for four points against the Clippers. That’s a recipe for disaster.
