The Clippers showed how scary they can be in a blowout win over the Cavaliers

A 113-94 beatdown of the defending champion Cavaliers was certainly one way for the Los Angeles Clippers to bounce back from a double overtime loss to the lowly Brooklyn Nets.

Why Luc Mbah a Moute is the Los Angeles Clippers’ unsung hero

The Clippers have arguably been the NBA’s best team so far this season.
