At the end of one, 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
Clippers up 11 and Indiana time out with 3 minutes left in the third. Sammy is just sizzling on the court, and Kaman has 11/16 again.
29 points, 3 boards, 6 dimes, 1 steal, 2 turnovers on 10-14 shooting in 26 minutes for ET
This is just insane man....Clippers = good money, to bet on. Altho i havent been impressed with Indiana even during wins but they are good enough with a healthy Oneal, Murphy back that they should be up 11. Not Clippers. Maybe teams take them lightly with no Brand or maybe teams like this just play thru adversity and everyone steps up/fills in.
Damn Sam Cassel! Thats wild statline thus far...he's capable of it tho but still.
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.

Al has a great mindset, one play he looked like he was going to jam it after a pump from the arc, but two Pacers slid in and he slowed himself down and drew the blocking foul and got to shoot himself some nice free throws.
