Clippers vs. Rockets

Tonight the Los Angeles Clippers are going to play the Houston Rockets.  The Clippers are led by Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Caron Butler.  Blake and Chris seem to have this connection when it comes to passing, Lob City.  Caron Butler has stepped up big for the Clippers in clutch moments.  Chris Paul has dished off to so many Clippers, with 9.6 assists per game and 16.8 points per game..  A major improvement of the Clippers is their center, DeAndre Jordan.  Jordan averages 9.3 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game.  That may not sound impressive, but Chris and Caron can shoot and pass.  Many of the points and rebounds go to Blake Griffin.  Griffin has an average of 17.7 points per a game and 8.6 rebounds per game.  This year it looks like the Clippers are going to be the big Los Angeles team, not the Lakers.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have had some big additions.  The added Jeremy Lin, or Linsanity, to their team in the offseason.  In the early part of the season they also added James Harden from the Thunder.  Yao Ming used to be on the Rockets until an injury ended his career.  Linsanity averages 12.1 points a game to go along with 6.3 assists a game.  James Harden has also earned his fame.  His beard is very famous and people say " Fear The Beard."  Maybe his beard helps him play better.  Harden averages 26.5 points per game.  The Rockets  have a good chance of making the playoffs this year if they play at this rate.
