Los Angeles Clippers: Why the NBA Playoffs May Not Be Out of Reach

The Los Angeles Clippers started out the season 1-13. All the summertime optimism surrounding their seemingly playoff-caliber roster (led by Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Blake Griffin, and Chris Kaman) had all but vanished.

Their next streak was slightly better with four wins in their next 12, but the Clips' record still stood at 5-21. The only positives were Griffin's emergence as a human highlight reel and Gordon's cracking the top ten in league scoring. Then Kaman went down to injury, leaving a gaping hole at center. 

However, the Clippers are now 14-25 and winners of 9 of their last 13, including victories over the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Chicago Bulls. Suddenly the Clippers are only five games behind eighth-seed Portland, and have positioned themselves back in the playoff conversation with half the season to go.
