We released a solid NBA winner on Sunday as the Golden St Warriors earned the cover and straight up win last night against the LA Clippers getting +7 points. The LA Clippers failed once again in the most fundamental skill on the court and that is free throw shooting. LA Clippers ought to be renamed to the LA Entertainers because they seem to emphasize more on style than in the work habits necessary to win an NBA title. A case in point you have a guy in Blake Griffin who has never won a thing in his life elevated to star status and all over your television set promoting products.

The Boston Celtics have played fairly well with six wins over their past eight games. They are still a solid defensive team allowing just 42.2% shooting to their opponents this season. The team was competitive yesterday against the LA Lakers fighting for the point spread cover despite falling behind by as much as 15 points on Sunday afternoon. They got offense against a Lakers team who are a solid defensive team playing on their home court. The Celtics shot 47% against LA Lakers yesterday.
The LA Clippers are a flawed team. They do bring excitement on the court and their young stars in Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan get caught up more in style than in the fundamentals necessary to chase an NBA championship. These two players are flawed at the free throw line and it is no surprised that these two players are the entertainers on the court who get off on monster dunks but can’t make a free throw. Those are the characteristics of entertainers and not winners. The Clippers coaching staff may not be strong enough to mold both Griffin and Jordan into NBA championship winners. Take the more professional team in the Boston Celtics at +5 ½ points against an NBA team in the LA Clippers who have two star players who are not developed as winners.
