Los Angeles Clippers Notes, Quotes 2009-11-08

Los Angeles Clippers Notes, Quotes 2009-11-08--F Craig Smith was succinct when describing how he was so effective in Saturday's triumph over Memphis, saying "Just being ready, going out there and trying to make things happen, offensive rebounds and trying to make plays." Smith, at times, tried to do too much on the offensive end in the win over the Grizzlies, but he remains one of the most potent backup scorers the Clippers have on the roster. When he's able to come up with 18 points and five rebounds, like he did against Memphis, the Clippers should have a good chance of winning.

--G Rasual Butler continued his penchant for clutch performances in Saturday's victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, as he repeatedly settled for jumpers throughout the contest, but found the mark when it mattered most, burying a pair of two-pointers in the fourth before adding a crucial three-ball to give the Clippers a four-point lead with time winding down in the game. Butler, who has helped his squad go 3-0 when he starts in 2009-2010, may find himself a fixture on the court late in games if he can continue his flair for the dramatic.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "You know, second unit, our job is to come in and bring that energy, and we're doing that." -- Sebastian Telfair, on the bench's performance thus far in 2009-2010.
