Clippers hope to avoid another slow start to season

first_imgThe Clippers are a week into that process now, seemingly looking more organized in workouts, more focused and more efficient — all things that could point to a good November.A better start could mean more wins, which could mean a better seeding and a better chance to get to the first NBA Finals in franchise history. A four-game winning streak to start last season was quickly offset when the Clippers proceeded to go 12-13 over the next 25 games.Their defense was a mess, the revamped pick-and-roll coverage still looking foreign as the Clippers allowed 100 points or more in 11 of those losses. Offensively, the Clippers were scoring points, but they weren’t in a great rhythm, looking like a team tired of the 82-game regular-season grind.“Last year, we kind of had a (expletive) start to the season and were playing catch up till the All-Star break,” Austin Rivers said earlier in training camp this fall.It’s something the Clippers hope they can avoid this season. Unlike last year, the Clippers aren’t making any major changes to their offensive or defensive philosophies. They have more continuity than all but four teams in the league this season, returning their starting lineup and four reserves.“It’s been a really smooth camp,” Doc Rivers said — something he’s repeated. “Guys are picking up stuff pretty quickly. We haven’t put in as much, I’d say that. But, we’re ahead because of what we’ve put in; we have a pretty good understanding of what we’re trying to do.”Chris Paul said the team came through the early part of camp meeting his expectations.“I feel like our camp was very efficient,” Paul said Monday. “Obviously we don’t know the rotation, what guys are going to be there and stuff like that, but I think we’re figuring it out. … (We’re) maybe even ahead a little bit just because we sort of knew what’s worked in the past.”And, they know what doesn’t work when it comes to getting out of the gates.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
