Clippers 107, Sixers 90: Immediate Reaction Thread

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

We're gonna need buckets to catch the lead, Sam.

Lob City indeed.

Chris Paul, in his third game back from a knee injury, made the most of his 25 minutes, contributing 21 points, 11 assists and five steals. Jamal Crawford shot 8-for-10 from the field for 20 points in 26 minutes to headline a 17-point win that was, in reality, nowhere near that close.

The Sixers were characteristically blase on offense, but without even the modicum of jump-shooting ability that usually keeps them in games. What is an underwhelming frontcourt to begin with, now denuded of its two best players, looked invisible against a Clippers frontcourt that ripped off a series of thunderous dunks that almost seemed to physically batter the Sixers into submission.

The Clippers' domination was thorough and visceral, the kind of shakedown that leaves you feeling like you're standing next to the subwoofer at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. They made Ryan Hollins look like Hakeem Olajuwon.

For what it's worth, Nick Young had a good night: 10-for-18 from the floor, 4-for-7 from three, and five out of six (SIX!) on free throws. That's 29 points and five assists, which looks even better when you consider no one else on the team had more than four field goals.
