Steve Perrin gives his take on Blake Griffin's injury scare during a preseason scrimmage.
Griffin's injury isn't bad -- is it? - Clips Nation
Even if the official word is that a precautionary MRI showed no structural damage, it still feels like we've been here before. It doesn't help that "bone bruise" seems to be used as a generic catch-all for injuries. How long are players usually out with "bone bruises"? There is no usual. That's the whole point of the "bone bruise" -- it exists to describe an injury for which there is no treatment and for which the player could be out for any amount of time.
Steve, also, is giving player previews for every single player on the Clippers' roster. In this one, he highlights Antawn Jamison.
2013-2014 Clipper Player Previews: Antawn Jamison - Clips Nation
So the good news is that Jamison might be the stretch four the Clippers have desperately sought for lo these many years. The bad news is that he's slow and undersized and will be a defensive and rebounding liability when he's on the floor.
This is a really cool thing that Clips Nation does every year during preseason. They have a big outing at one of the preseason games and afterwards they play a few pick up games on the court afterwards. Yes, in STAPLES CENTER.
Clips Nation Night 2013: Clips Nation takes the court again! - Clips Nation
For the fourth season in a row, Clips Nation will host a group ticket event for a Clippers game that features court time after the game. We've got a great game this time, the Clippers against the Nets in the reunion of Doc Rivers with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. And it's on a Saturday, so we don't have to get up early the next morning for school or work!
If you have attended one of these in the past, you know how cool it is to get to play some hoops on the Clippers court at the conclusion of the game. If you haven't attended before, now's your chance.
Citizen Zhiv gives his thoughts on Clippers vs Blazers.
A Few Thoughts on Clippers-Blazers - Clips Nation
You know what else I didn't like? I didn't love the Collison and Crawford combination, but that might have been affected by missing Barnes and also by the Mulligan. Bledsoe's bledsoeness was a fantastic complement to Crawford's crawfordity. On the whole Collison looks to be a premier backup, and we can give Crawford all sorts of time to find his mojo; it doesn't have to be around during the preseason, that's for sure.
