Clippers Offense: Los Angeles wasted a golden opportunity to go up 3-0 in this series because they played a sloppy offensive game. The Clippers came into Game 3 shooting .459 for the series, averaging 23.5 assists and only 13 turnovers. Their lack of concentration showed up in their poor execution, ballhandling and passing. They committed 24 turnovers, had only 14 assists and shot a very poor 40.3 percent.
It was killing Mike Dunleavy to watch his team self destruct. He knew they could have won this game. If they want to go back to L.A. up 3-1, they must come out ready with a crisp and efficient offensive effort.
