Q's Prediction: Clippers Lose 98-92
Q's Prediction Record: 3-0
Q's Quote: Predicted a win, but now, I have a feeling we will not walk out of this game undefeated like Indiana would. I hope we win, but in order to do so, we have to really bang the post with Kaman, get Foster and O'Neal in foul trouble if possible. Maggette needs to have a good game through out and we have to stay out of foul trouble. Along with that, we can not give up any offensive rebounds and try to get some ourselves. Hopefully Clippers prove me wrong and beat the Pacers! If it's high scoring, I see us taking it, but they'll slow it down no doubt.
8:53 left in the half, Pacers up 28-32. Clippers couldn't hit a shot for a while, but Q hit one. We have to see how these players will come back. Mobley is not available for the rest of the night, Knight is nursing a bad back, and Patterson I have no clue why he hasn't played let. Clips need to start hitting some shots.
At the end of one half, Indiana has a 3 point lead, and although these teams might be in the 50s, it doesn't seem like a fast paced game. Nice athletic steal by Thornton and a nice try but shot didn't fall and the half came to and end. Clipper injury woes continue with Mobley being doubtful to return tonight and Knight most likely not going to play, on top of that, Patterson getting his dislocated finger checked.
Chris Kaman: 6|10|3 with a steal
Al Thornton: 11|4 + a steal
Sam Cassell: 18|3 on 7-10 Shooting
Travis Diener: 6|4 on 2-3 from the arc
Jermaine O'Neal: 13|2|4 on 6-9 shooting
Troy Murphy: 10|2 on 2-3 treys
Now Corey Maggette is injured...are you ****ing kidding me...what the hell is going on with the injuries this ****ing year. Maggette, Mobley, Brand, Livingston AND Patterson all injured, that's an entire starting five....oh man....what the.....grrr
Thornton almost hits another buzzer beater, but this one is off and Clippers lead 87-72 at the end of three. Kaman has 13/18...could he get another 20/20 game? Man, he has been beasting up on the boards tonight.
