The L.A. Clippers got their much-anticipated 2011-12 campaign underway on Sunday with a decisive 105-86 win over the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers got off to a slow start early on with their new cast of characters, but after an impressive second half, they were able to come away with a win.
Chris Paul, in his first game as a Clipper, finished with 20 points and nine assists. Blake Griffin continued his early assault on the NBA with 22 points and seven rebounds, and Chauncey Billups finished up with 21 points.
The Clippers are off to a good start, but there are some observations that I made about them based on their performance from their first game.
