The LA Clippers can out-Rocket the Houston Rockets

The LA Clippers get their first shot at the Houston Rockets post-trade deadline tonight in Houston. The Rockets now sport a lineup featuring no players taller than 6’8″. The new permanent small-ball team has been extremely successful with their experiment, toppling teams like the Los Angeles Lakers who stay big versus them. The LA Clippers might be one of the few teams in the NBA equipped to fight fire with fire.

Head coach Doc Rivers has already toyed with the idea of playing small ball after the Clippers acquired Marcus Morris at the trade deadline.
