  10. Why are the Clippers vulnerable? Defense (or coaching)

    Apr 2, 2013, 7:55 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    Before the season started what was the mantra about the Clippers on this site (and most others)? It’s all about the defense.

    Raymond Felton

    While Carmelo Anthony is not going to be showered with rose petals and given boxes of chocolate Wednesday night when he returns to Denver, the venom for him there has tapered off with time.

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week.

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:06 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    LOS ANGELES — Since the start of the season there have been two questions that seem to define just how far the Clippers can go: 1) How good is DeAndre Jordan playing at the five? 2) How good is the Clippers defense? The answer to both of those questions of late was “not good.” Which…

    The Thunder and the Clippers are likely second round playoff opponents, should neither team be able to overtake the Spurs for the number one overall seed in the Western Conference.
