Through their first two games, the LA Clippers looked like a team on a mission, beating the Lakers and Nuggets behind a strong performance from their stars.
Sunday's match against the Mavs, however, didn't follow that pattern. Before the end of the first half, the Clippers were down by 50 points, marking the largest margin by any team at half-time in NBA history. They ended up losing the game by 51, with a final score of 124-73.
The Clippers were without Kawhi tonight, who suffered a pretty brutal elbow to the face during the Christmas Day game.
Still, fans weren't exactly sympathetic and the embarrassing loss was only made worse by those who roasted the team on Twitter.
In the grand scheme of things, one game doesn't mean a whole lot and this team is more than capable of bouncing back.
But in a time when the Clippers are trying to prove themselves as legitimate contenders, this isn't the type of performance that helps them further their goal. Nevertheless,s we'll see soon enough how they respond.
