The Clippers are who we thought they were

While the Clippers got off to a hot start and Blake Griffin has played like a legitimate MVP candidate, through 10 games LA is right around where most predicted them to be: the middle of the pack. The Clippers are a good team, but outside of Blake, the team lacks the offensive firepower that the leagues top teams have. Injuries and a tougher part of the schedule have left the Clippers losing five of their last six and currently outside the playoff picture. The Clippers are still likely headed to the playoffs, but they have come back to earth after their early season success.
