NBA Handicapping: Clippers blasted in Utah sans Paul, return home to face Dallas

01.18.2012     06:20 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Dallas at LA Clippers

Without Chris Paul, or any real desire to put forth an effort, this happened to the Los Angeles Clippers last night. Head coach Vinny Del Negro wasn't shy about voicing his disappointment. The Clips still trail a majority of the team in terms of games played but will be facing the third game of a back-to-back-to-back tonight against Dallas. As of this morning, Paul (hamstring) was listed as questionable.

 

"I didn’t like our approach," Del Negro said. "I didn’t like our focus. I didn’t like our toughness. I didn’t like our energy to start the game. We dug ourselves a hole.

"We’re not going to win a lot of games playing with that type of effort. I don’t care if it is a back-to-back game, where we’re playing, how much rest they have. We have to play better than that."

"We just came out and played poorly. We didn’t have good energy," Del Negro said. "We weren’t aggressive. They were more aggressive. Give Utah credit, but our starters didn’t get off to a good start with their energy defensively and Utah got into a rhythm.

"There’re no excuses. We’ve got to bounce back tomorrow night and play much harder, play smarter, play tougher, and that’s what I expect."
