Finally Healthy

Isn’t this nice? The Clippers are finally healthy going into the Playoffs (Minus Austin Rivers). After injuries have cut the Clippers postseasons short the past few years, we may actually get to see what a healthy and clicking LA squad can do.

As I’m sure y’all are aware, when the Clippers are healthy they are dominate. Fully healthy, they started the season on a tear, winning 14 out of their first 16. LA was clearly the best team in the league the first quarter of the season.

Then the injuries came.

Blake Griffin had some loose bodies in his knee that were causing pain, so he went on the DL to get the bodies removed. Chris Paul tried his best to keep the team afloat in Blake’s absence, which he did, but then hurt his hand on a freak play that was eerily similar to last seasons. With both of the Clippers playmakers out, they struggled.

While both Blake and CP3 have been healthy for weeks now, the team has finally started resembling the team that started the season. That’s going to be huge for them when they inevitably face Golden State.
