Lakers Rally in the Fourth to Keep the Clippers Win Less
It has only been five games, so no time to panic Clippers fans, but the other team in Los Angeles is still trying to get the first win of the season.
Even though the Clippers did lose their second showdown against the Lakers 106-97, they didn't go down without giving the Kobe and company a run for their money.
Although the game was pretty close at times, this was an ugly game filled with very poor shooting by both teams. Neither team was able to shoot over 38% from the floor which is a terrible percentage to say the least.
Nobody, besides Lamar Odom shot a decent percentage (50%) from the floor on Wednesday. Everyone else, including Kobe (8 for 21), Baron Davis (7 for 21) and Al Thorton (8 for 19) couldn't throw a rock in the ocean.
The Clipps did have a chance at beating the undefeated Lakers as they took the lead with about 8 minutes to go in the fourth off a Cuttino Mobley jumper, but after 16 point run lead by Kobe, Lamar Odom and Jordan Farmar the Lakers pulled away and never looked back.
After an 0-5 the Clippers season doesn't look all that great, but it is just five games and the team definitely needs to develop some team chemistry. I give them about two months and things will start looking up for Baron Davis and company.
