Eventually, your little brother grows up. Sometimes, he turns out to be bigger than you’d expected.
The old adage “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” doesn’t hold nearly as much water in sports as “If you can’t join ‘em, beat ‘em.”. The Los Angeles Clippers seem to be bent on the latter as they’ve begun a pattern of trying to best their Staples’ Center counterparts, and in doing so, make themselves into a perennial contender.
Wow! We had a monster night last night! All our picks hit! Thank you D’Angelo Russell and Andrew Wiggins. After last night’s insanely heavy, stacked, crazy night, we only have two games to work with. So let’s see what we can come up with!
The Miami Heat suffered their second home loss of the season. This time against another LA team in the Los Angeles Clippers. After building an early 15-point lead, the Heat found themselves playing from behind thanks to a rough third quarter. Miami’s season record is now at 31-14. Continue reading →
