PBT Extra: How far will Clippers slip without CP3? And talking D’Antoni with Lakers.

Jan 6, 2014, 5:35 PM EDT

The Los Angeles Clippers losing Chris Paul is a big blow — but how big? The incomparable Kay Adams and I talk about it in today’s new PBT Extra.

I see it this way: The Clippers are currently tied for the 4/5 seed and Pacific lead with Golden State, plus they are just three games up on the 8 seed Mavericks. The Clips will lose more games, probably fall back to the 8 seed (give or take a spot or two), then things will stabilize in 20 games or so when CP3 returns. The Clippers will start to climb back up, but in a deep West they likely do not get back higher than the five seed — that means every playoff series they are the road team for key games. That’s a tough way to advance deep.

Then Kay asks me about the ridiculous Carmelo Anthony for Blake Griffin rumors. Finally, we talk about why right now Mike D’Antoni is a good fit with the Lakers.
