Los Angeles Clippers Notes, Quotes 2009-11-22


Los Angeles Clippers Notes, Quotes 2009-11-22--G Rasual Butler struggled with his shot over the last few games. This may have led to his benching at the start of Friday's home game with the Denver Nuggets. However, he looked great once he entered, not hesitating a second while hoisting up and burying a trio of treys and driving to the basket for an easy deuce (27 points). His continued resurgence will help the Clippers as starting shooting guard Eric Gordon recovers.

--G/F Ricky Davis may not be in line for any more starts at the shooting guard spot, despite Eric Gordon's absence. Davis was one of the few Clippers who looked out of sync against Denver, missing jumpers he's generally made easily while playing as a backup in 2009-10 and not being able to keep his hands off of whomever he was guarding. Davis was pulled in the third quarter with five points and four fouls.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Stay around the team, stay positive, keep working on different things, (like) ballhandling, stationary shooting, free throws." -- Blake Griffin on how he has handled himself since being injured in the preseason.
