It seems like it’s always the same story with the Los Angeles Clippers.
They look like one of the strongest teams in the Western Conference, at least on paper.
But as deep and solid as they look, they can’t seem to stay healthy or develop any sort of chemistry on the floor, which often messes with Tyronn Lue‘s rotations.
The Clippers are currently sitting on a six-game losing streak.
However, Nic Batum isn’t all that worried, as he knows they can get hot in the blink of an eye, and that one game might as well be the catalyst they need to straighten the course of the season:
“Sometimes, just one game can change everything. I hope it’s gonna be next game,” Batum told ClutchPoints’ Tomer Azarly. “We gotta stay positive. People are gonna worry and talk negative about us. We gotta stick together.”
The Clippers are playing .500 basketball with a 21-21 record right now, sitting in the seventh spot in the West.
So, how is this team supposed to build rapport and get ready for the postseason if they don’t play together? It takes more than just talent to win in this league.
Of course, they’re still the last team you want to face in the playoffs, but they’re not even a lock to reach that stage unless they start winning some basketball games soon.
