The Los Angeles Clippers have slowed down as of late, and Lob City's success may come to a screeching halt.
The Clippers have already been on a steady decline since their star shooting guard, Chauncey Billups, went down with a season-ending achillies injury. In their last 14 games, the Clippers have gone 7-7 against some really good teams—and against some teams, like the Washington Wizards, who might have trouble making the Elite Eight during March Madness, but I digress.
The Clippers will continue to face some tough competition after the All-Star break, and they might get into some trouble facing teams who have more experience then they do.
The experienced teams are the ones that usually thrive after the All-Star break—like the Los Angeles Lakers, who have gone 3-0 since the break this season and went 19-6 after the break in the 2010-2011 regular season.
Despite the recent troubles the Clippers have encountered, they have been able to impress the masses with their play.
However, the second half of the season should scare the Clippers and their fanbase because there are some tough matchups against some very tough teams who are either looking for revenge or looking to kill the hype that is “Lob City."
