Sunday’s game was another one that featured the Clippers in their #BackInBlue alternate jerseys and the team brought plenty of highlights to Boston.  The first half was highlighted by another impressive dunk by DeAndre Jordan that added to the Clippers nearly thirty point lead in the first half.  Never one to have a quiet game, Blake Griffin added to the fun with his own play on a remarkable 180 degree block on the Celtics’ Jonas Jerebko.

The fourth quarter was also unfortunately darkened by a break in the action where a spectator who was sitting courtside required medical assistance and was helped out of the arena on a stretcher.  According to reports, Jordan noticed the fan seemingly have a seizure and collapsed onto the floor.  Celtic’s coach Brad Stevens did not want to comment extensively on the issue however he did state to the press that to his knowledge the fan was doing well and received adequate care.

  • The Clippers will be playing four of their last eight games at home, technically five considering one of the contests is an “away” game against the Los Angeles Lakers.  The level of opposition is in the favor for the Clips as they face only three other playoff teams in the final stretch.  Their final eight games begin with back-to-back contests against the league-leading Golden State Warriors and current fourth seed Portland Trailblazers. The only other notable games will be a two-game Los Angeles showdown with the Lakers and one game against the Memphis Grizzlies before the start of the postseason.

    The matchup with the Warriors will be nationally televised and will be a preview of where two of the biggest powers in the Western Conference are before the playoffs.  The rivalry between the two teams has recently gained traction with the Warrior’s Draymond Green saying he will not be playing against the Clippers due to having “Blake-itis.”  The game could carry big implications as both teams are considered front-runners in the Western Conference and if both are successful in the postseason, as the seedings are now, then they would face each other in the Conference finals.  Last year, the Clippers beat the Warriors in a seven-game series during the first round of the playoffs.

    In other news, the Clippers chose not to sign guard Nate Robinson for the remainder of the season due to his recent knee injury.  The team had previously signed him to a second ten-day contract in order to help bolster the strength of the bench following the injury to Jamal Crawford.  Nate Robinson is expected to return to play next week, however it is unknown if the Clippers will choose to sign him at that time.

    Jamal Crawford  is still expected to return to the line-up before the postseason if his recovery continues. Per the Los Angeles Times, the Clippers have signed Lester Hudson to a ten-day contract to fill the void of Crawford and Robinson.  Hudson was a second-round pick of the Celtics back in 2009 and played for several NBA teams before finding success playing in China.
