If the Clippers needed to send a message to the rest of the league that they’re back in business, blowing out the Oklahoma City Thunder, 120-98, sure did it. However, this victory over OKC might have come at a huge price. Chris Paul exited the game after the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook, 28, came down on his thumb. Initial x-rays came back negative, per Fox Sports, which is good news. The last time Chris was out with an injury – a left hamstring strain – L.A. went on that six-game losing streak.
“You worry when he doesn’t come back out in the second half,” J.J. Redick said, after the fame. “Hopefully, it’s not serious, but if it is, Blake [Griffin, 27] is going to be back soon. We’ll just continue to play.”
Blake’s been sidelined after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove “loose bodies” from his right knee on Dec. 20. He was expected to return four to six weeks following the procedure, and he’s expected to return at the end of January. Hopefully, for Clippers fans, Chris Paul’s injury isn’t that bad and he’ll be one of the first to high five Blake on his return.
As for Minnesota, the 14-27 Timberwolves don’t appear to be on a path that’ll take them to the NBA Postseason. Still, if any team – especially the Clippers – sleeps on them, it could result in a surprising upset.
