Clippers with the Magic Touch

Clippers with the... Magic touch. Do you get it? No, but like... Do you get it? Hold on, be right back. We have to register the domain Okay, back. Moving on...

Clipps added another big road win to their now 15-7 record with a 107-102 overtime victory over the not-too-shabby Orlando Magic. Chris Paul put up 29 points, 8 assists, and 7 rebounds, in the Clippers 6th win out of 7 games; their second in a row to start off a 6-game road trip. It wasn’t an easy one, as they trailed for most of the game, and had a tough time controlling Superman Howard who dropped 33 points and 14 rebounds. 

Chauncey contributed 18 points, but left the game in the 4th with an Achilles injury that may keep him sidelined for several games. Blake was 6-7 from the free-throw line, a refreshing, albeit atypical occurrence, on his way to a typical 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Admittedly, the Clippers didn’t look great, but a win’s a win, especially on the road. Oh, and especially when it snaps a nine-game losing streak against said opponent. It’s tough games on long road trips that are the downfall of a hot, young team like the “Lob City” Clippers, so this certainly bodes well as far as living up to the hype that they’ve garnered thus far. Apparently Kenyon Martin “joined” the Clippers tonight, but didn’t grace us with his presence on the court quite yet. We wait with bated breath!

Bonus Question: 
Who is the more charming big-man: Deandre or Dwight?
