Meanwhile, there’s been trouble in the Clippers camp ever since star power forward Blake Griffin broke his band after striking assistant equipment team manager Matias Testi on Jan. 23. He won’t be available for the game, and according to coach Doc Rivers he’s also not available trade. They want to stand by their man.
“I’ve told you we’re not trading Blake, but I guess everyone else wants to keep doing that. So we’ll let them do that,” Doc said Tuesday before practice. “It is what it is. Nothing we can do about it, honestly. It frustrates you when you know nothing’s going on, but what can you do?”
As Golden State attempt to become record breakers, success into context in a recent Jan. 25 game against the San Antonio Spurs, who boast their own impressive record with only 8 defeats this year, one of their most important players Manu Ginobili called this current Warriors team unbeatable. They smashed their nearest rivals by 30 points!
“I know everyone is talking about how great Golden State is and we found out about it the hard way. People wonder what it would take to stop them and it really doesn’t seem possible,” Manu told Fox Sports. And for the moment it’s really hard to disagree with him.
