After dropping three straight games to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Los Angeles Clippers changed face from one of the deepest and most dominant teams in the league to a squad lacking the toughness and mental fortitude necessary to be considered a title contender.
With the exception of Chris Paul, the Clippers have seen tremendous drop-off from the rest of their players. The oft-criticized Vinny Del Negro is once again on the hot seat, as his inability to counter Lionel Hollins’ adjustments has been critical to the Clips’ recent struggles.
Other than Paul, who has contributed in an effort to lift LAC past the Grizz? Who looks to have folded under the pressure of the postseason spotlight?
We will grade all Clipper rotation players based off of criteria including postseason performance relative to regular-season numbers, impact on the game and sustainable success.
