The Clippers have won 8 out of their last 11 games. They are trying to make a push for the playoffs. Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin have been impressive the entire season. It seems that they are pushing their teammates to play better and they might have a shot to take that last spot in the playoffs.
The Heat came into Staples Center with the longest road win streak this season, 13. Well that changed tonight when the Clippers upset the Heat.
Clippers came out ready to play and scored 44 points in the first quarter, the most points in one quarter against the Heat this year. This was also the most points in a quarter for the Clippers since 1989.
Blake Griffin hasn’t slowed down all season. He had 24 points with 14 rebounds and 6 assists. This was Blake’s 24th straight double-double. Eric Gordon scored 26 of his own and even Baron Davis had a nice game with 20 points and 9 assists.
Last night after the Lakers embarrassed the Cavaliers at Staples Center, Lebron tweeted:
Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!
Well, something happened to Lebron in the fourth quarter that would have people saying “karma” bit him in the butt. While driving to the basket, Lebron twisted his ankle. It didn’t look pretty and maybe next time he’ll think twice about what he tweets.
Shoutout to the Clippers for protecting that Lakers’ NBA record road winning streak. (16 by ’71-72 squad)
Box Score: Clippers 111 Heat 105
