LAST SEASON: (56-26), Lost NBA Western Conference First Round
G – Chris Paul, J.J. Redick
F – Jared Dudley, Blake Griffin
C – DeAndre Jordan
6TH MAN: Jamal Crawford
KEY ADDITIONS: J.J. Redick, Jared Dudley, Darren Collison, Byron Mullens
KEY LOSSES: Caron Butler, Eric Bledsoe, Chauncey Billups, Lamar Odom
FORECAST: The Clippers are one of the better teams in their conference and have one of the most exciting offenses in the league. Last season the team cruised through the regular season with ease, but fell into a disaster in the first round of the playoffs.
The Clippers return this year with some true workhorses in Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick. Both of those wing players will fit perfectly alongside the sharp passing of Chris Paul. Los Angeles’ star point guard has averaged 17 points and 10 assists last season and will continue to do succeed with Griffin by his side.
Los Angeles made some small moves in the offseason but they look to be just enough for the team to make it further into the playoffs. Paul will have another strong campaign, while Griffin is expected have kicked up his abilities on offense.
