The Los Angeles Clippers have the longest winning streak in the NBA with 9 straight games. All but one win without Blake Griffin, out because of injury. Whoopty damn doo. Sorry for my negative vibe, but I have been down on the Clippers since the gave up the western conference semifinals series to the Houston Rockets last year. They were up 3-1 in the series, then 3-2 with game 6 in their backyard. Up 20 something points in game 6, they coughed up (not choked because I am being nice) the game and eventually lost the series 4-3.

Its mostly offensive sets and the book is out on the Clippers. If you slow them down and force them to play in a half court, they will struggle. Griffin has to work on getting better positioning on the block and not posting up on the wing. He also needs to work on a jump hook or turn around jumper. If he does, CP3 and others would be able to just drop the ball to him on the block in crunch time and let Blake go to work
