Daily Dish Report: Barnes rant, Xmas Uniforms, J.R./Jennings Beef and Karl Malone Fires Back
Was last night’s Los Angeles Clippers/Oklahoma City Thunder game a sneak preview of the Western Conference
Despite playing without both Serge Ibaka (who was thrown out in the second quarter) and Kendrick Perkins, the Thunder played the Clippers tough as they only trailed by four points with four minutes to go in regulation. However, that would be as close as OKC would get as Jamal Crawford helped ice the victory with 12 fourth quarter points. This could be the start of a great rivalry!
