Scouting the Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers are 1-9, but they have some talent. Chris Kaman
and Marcus Camby
are a strong 1-2 punch inside. Both are always among the blocked shot leaders. Baron Davis
and Cuttino Mobley
are a strong perimeter combination.
"They’re still putting it together, but they can be a very good team,” Carlesimo said. "Right now they’re not hitting on all cylinders, but it’s a talented team.”
Because of a hectic schedule, the Thunder practiced for the first time in a week on Tuesday. Calling it a good practice, Carlesimo said they worked on specific areas, although the practice went a little longer (1 hour, 30 minutes) than he planned... Jeff Green
is averaging 19.6 points the last four games, including hitting 8 of 18 3-pointers... Rookie Russell Westbrook
will play some shooting guard with Desmond Mason
(sprained elbow) sidelined at least two weeks... Carlesimo said Damien Wilkins
should start to play better now that he’s in the rotation after seeing limited playing time the first seven games.
