Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-11-15


Los Angeles Clippers Roster Report 2009-11-15ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Baron Davis, Shooting guard Rasual Butler, Small forward Al Thornton, Power forward Marcus Camby, Center Chris Kaman. Bench -- Guard Kareem Rush, Guard Sebastian Telfair, Forward Craig Smith, Center DeAndre Jordan, Forward Steve Novak.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Al Thornton had his second consecutive strong outing in Friday's defeat to the Raptors, going 5-for-7 from the field and netting 12 points. He found a few easy opportunities near the hoop, and the closer he can get to the basket before firing up a shot, the better off the Clippers should be as the season moves on.

--G Baron Davis let Toronto's Jose Calderon roam for most of Friday's home loss to the Raptors. The strategy eventually paid off when Calderon began misfiring, and perhaps Davis will use the strategy again the next time the two teams meet.

--F Craig Smith deftly stole the ball from Toronto's Andrea Bargnani in the fourth quarter of Friday's setback to the Raptors, finishing off a fast-break layup with a foul and a subsequent made free-throw. Smith's show of quick hands and athleticism must have been a welcome sight for the Clippers, considering Smith's recent eye injury sustained in Monday's loss to the New Orleans Hornets when Hilton Armstrong accidentally hit Smith in the face with his shoe.
