Glad to see our guys with a nice win last night. They truly have some very good players playing for them, and I can't wait to see Kaman back (maybe with Randolph on the court at the same time). Does anyone know what kind of injury Kaman has and exactly how long he's expected to be out? Also, should be quite entertaining tonight going up against a very good team in Orlando.

Guys, it was the most improbable comeback. Steve Blake, a 94% free throw shooter, missed 4/5 free throws. Clippers are down by 3.. With 8 Seconds left. BARON DAVIS WITH A SPECTACULAR 3 TO TIE THE GAME AT THE BUZZER.

Who woulda thought that Randolph, after missing his first 3 shots.. Would score 38 points. Even his first few makes were because of unbelievable passes from Camby.

But SNVE, it was definitely a game to tivo and watch. The game was competitive from the first second till the very end. I think the biggest lead was 8? Something like that.. and only for a few seconds too.

Brandon Roy is awesome, Oden is still very raw, Aldridge can't score when Camby is on him, and Rudy Fernandez's hops are out of this world.

Greg Oden is pretty much raw offensively, that's the knock on him, besides his injury concern... I feel his pressure though... All that hype, it's like all eyes are on him right now...

Aldridge is kinda soft IMO, he's not Brian Cook or Bargnani soft but still...

Yeah, he has a nice jumper, but they kept trying to run iso plays for him in both the overtimes. I think he was like 0-6 or something like that in the overtimes alone.. Why would you run iso plays for someone who's being guarded by Marcus Camby?

Couldn't have said it better myself, what a good defensive game tonight. And this was after a double overtime game just one night before this game, and no Kaman or RDavis. Wow.

Now if only we had bench contribution like the Lakers do, but at least we'll be getting Kaman and a HEALTHY Ricky coming off the bench.

Not everybody is meant to be a 'hard' player. Aldridge is actually of the Gasol mold. More of a finesse big man. He fits in perfectly with Greg Oden.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Maybe a week ago, Kaman said something like 2-3 weeks.

Going 2-0 on a back-to-back set against the Blazers and Rockets is very impressive. They really need to see if they can trade Kaman though.

I would keep Kaman...he's one of the better post up players in the league and a 3 man frontline of camby/randolph/kaman is pretty good. You can switch around these guys in the starting lineup on game to game needs

Camby isn't getting and he's injury prone so Kaman is a good backup plan to have

and besides the clips bench is razor thin so Kaman can provide some pop from the pine

The thing with that lineup is it keeps Gordon or Thornton on the bench and both guys are playing well. Camby is probably best suited for the 6th man role.

I think I like this lineup best for now:

Baron
Gordon
Thornton
Randolph
Camby.

Kaman being the 6th man off the bench, with Ricky Davis picking up some scoring slack, Paul Davis being a reliable big who battles till the end, and Brian Skinner with some defense. And depending on the speed of the game, either Mike Taylor or Jason Hart as point guard. Mardy Collins hasn't been half bad either, and I wish Novak would bust some 3's, he's too good of a 3 point shooter to not shoot

DeAndre is still in the cellar being developed.. Hope they put him in the D-League! Look what it did for Farmar and Mike Taylor.

Great wins tonight.

I'm happy Clippers and Lakers both won, it's a good day.

Clips look to extend their winning streak to 4 tomorrow night in Chicago.
