The Clippers started the season with a 14-2 record, but they dropped two games straight (by double digits) to the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers, leaving some speculating that the Clippers season was already sunk.
“At this point, we have high expectations. We have got to try to meet those. We understand it. We get it,” DeAndre Jordan, 28, said, speaking of how he, Chris Paul, 31, and Blake Griffin, 27, need to step it up, according to the Los Angeles Times. “At the end of the day, we got to just man up and play. Play with some pride and emotion and intensity and the right way and the way that our coaches are coaching us to play.”
Whereas the Clippers are in a slump, Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, 24, is soaring. After scoring 39 points in the Cavs’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Kyrie regained his spot ahead of LeBron as the team’s scoring leader. “From the first day on, he’s been getting better and better and better like I’ve stated over time,” LeBron said, per Cleveland.com, “This is Year 3 for us and he’s just a much better, complete basketball player from a mental side.”
Kyrie will get plenty of chances to show how much he’s grown. After this Clippers match, the Cavs take on the Chicago Bulls before battling Drake’s, 30, hometown team, the Toronto Raptors. As for the Clippers, they have their hands full. After a game with the New Orleans Pelicans and another round with the Pacers, they take on the Warriors. If DeAndre and crew plan to “man up,” now’s the time.
Who do you think will win this match, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Cleveland will clip the Clippers’ wings, or will Los Angeles rain down on Cleveland’s parade?
