Clippers vs Magic

The Los Angeles Clippers had one of the most stunning performances of the season, coming back from 35 points to defeat the Washington Wizards yesterday.

Trailing 66-31 with a little more than a minute left in the first half, their 35-point comeback is the second-biggest comeback in the shot clock era only behind the Utah Jazz coming back from a 36-point deficit to defeat the Denver Nuggets in 1996.

Despite the fact that Clippers head coach Tyron Lue didn’t play three of his starters in Reggie Jackson, Ivica Zubac and Nicolas Batum in the second half of last night’s win, this is still tough situational spot for the Clippers who are playing their third game in four nights in addition to a game on a back-to-back.

Trends aside, these are two teams which are offensively inept with the Clippers ranking 27th in Offensive Rating (106.8) and the Magic ranking 28th (103.4).

Neither of these teams play fast either with the Clippers ranking 16th in Pace (98.3) and 17th in Offensive Length of Possession (14.7 seconds) and the Magic ranking 15th in Pace (98.3) and 15th in Offensive Length of Possession (14.6 seconds), according to Dunks And Threes.

With the Clippers likely having tired legs, I’m not seeing a high scoring game here.
