That's all she wrote folks. The L.A. Clippers toyed with the New York Knicks on route to a 93-80 victory.
The superstar-less Knicks were outclassed, outmatched and overpowered from the tip, as evidenced by their atrocious 35.8 percent shooting from the floor.
J.R. Smith was the main culprit in lowering the Knicks efficiency, with a 4-of-20 shooting performance on the afternoon.
It wasn't always pretty for the Clippers but Blake Griffin grabbed a double double with 12 points and 12 rebounds, and Chris Paul added 20 points, eight assists and four rebounds.
One thing is very clear, and that is that the Knicks need Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler back sooner than later.
Chandler's presence in the paint would've been a real difference maker, with the Clippers scoring 40 points in the paint, compared to the Knicks measly 20 points.
The Knicks have a tough turnaround with a road game Monday against the Utah Jazz. They'll be hoping that one of their two injured superstars—Chandler or Carmelo—will be able to suit back up, because without them the Knicks are going to keep falling down the Eastern Conference playoff ladder.
