vs. lac: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

November 7, 2010

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Clips Nation.

From the game preview:

The Clippers haven’t beaten the Jazz on the road since early 2003. Before that win you have to go back to 1989. That’s correct. In more than 20 years, the Clippers have won once in Utah. They’ve lost 40 times. Actually, if you include playoff series, they’ve lost 45 times. That’s how long this Utah futility has been going on … Here’s hoping that the players don’t know the history.

The Subplots
* The last time the Clippers won in Utah. George Bush was in his first term as president. Blake Griffin was 13 years old. The starters for the Clippers were Lamar Odom, Elton Brand, Corey Maggette, Andre Miller and Sean Rooks. The coach of the Clippers was Alvin Gentry. The starters for the Jazz included a guy named Stockton and a guy named Malone. Kirilenko is the only player from either roster who was at that game. The coach of the Jazz was Jerry Sloan.
* The time before that. George Bush was in his first term as president – that’s George H.W. Bush. Blake Griffin was one month old (33 days, to be exact). The starters for the Clippers were Charles Smith, Benoit Benjamin, Tom Garrick, Ken Norman and Gary Grant. The coach of the Clippers was Don Casey. The starters for the Jazz included a guy named Stockton and a guy named Malone. The coach of the Jazz was Jerry Sloan (it was his first season as Utah’s head coach).

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the Clippers take a 10 point early lead
