The Clippers, not measuring up
The Clippers continue to have the same inconsistency issues they have displayed since Kawhi Leonard and Paul George landed at Staples Center two summers ago. They cannot be a safe team, they go for arreones, and thus you cannot beat teams as serious as the Utah Jazz in the playoffs. They must improve a lot if they want to turn the tie around.
