FINAL SCORE: CLIPPERS 103, RAPS 91 SEASON RECORD: 4W-13L
POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: LINAS KLEIZA
LINE: 16 pts (5-10), 4 rebs, 3 ast, 1 stl
Kleiza put in a solid performance off the Raptors' bench with 16 points on Sunday afternoon. For a team that shot just 35.8% in another disappointing loss, Kleiza's performance was one of the few bright spots for the Raps on Sunday. In a furry of Lob City highlights of Griffin/DeAndre Jordan alley oop dunks, Kleiza made the Raptors' highlight reel with a slam over the Clippers' Randy Foye.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE: 15 pts, 8 rebs, 1 ast, 3 Stl
It wasn't the best shooting night for DeMar as he went just 4-19 in his return to his hometown of Los Angeles. But DeMar put up a decent 15-pt performance for Toronto and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds in the loss.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: JERRYD BAYLESS
LINE: 7 pts, 5 ast, 2 stl
The healthy bodies are coming back as the Raps had Jerryd Bayless make his return after missing 13 games with the ankle injury. Bayless will look to relieve Jose Calderon and cut into some of the point guard minutes going forward.
SHOUTOUTS TO THE CLIPPERS:
LINE: 26 pts (8-15), 3 3-pt, 1 stl,1 blk
Without Chris Paul, Mo Williams has filled in nicely putting up his third straight 25+ pt game in a row for the Clips. Mo Williams has now scored 77 pts in his last three games. That my friends, is a solid sixth man.
