Clippers, Championship Contenders?

Clippers, Championship Contenders?

Aaron Valadez, Contributor

The Clippers recorded a 123-84 win against the Brooklyn Nets last Thursday. How’s that for a basketball game win. The Clippers record is 29-14 and somehow can’t seem to win against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. I mean Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and Al Horford are somehow too good this year with their record being 36-8. So the question is, are the Los Angeles Clippers championship contenders? I mean  the Clippers stole Chris Paul from the New Orlean Hornets back in 2011 and received Blake Griffin in 2011, and ever since have made the playoffs. Before that the Clippers were supposedly the joke of the National Basketball Association. Now the Clippers are too good even if they are 1-2 against the Cavaliers in the past three games. WIth the Clippers roster including all-star Blake Griffin, all-star Chris Paul, J.J Redick, Matt Barnes, and Deandre Jordan the LA Clippers are just too good. The Clippers have at least one player on four of the top ten leaderboards. The team is recording 73.6% free throw shooting, 48.8% field goal percentage, and 1,112 points so far this January of 2015. The LA Clippers in my opinion surely are championship contenders.
