After a rather shaky start to the regular season, the Los Angeles Clippers are finding their groove. Following their blowout win over the Indiana Pacers, the Clippers have now won four-straight games, and the team is citing an improved chemistry as the main reason for the strong play of late.
“I feel like our energy is way better this season,” Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. said, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “Think guys are buying in.”
“We kind of felt let down last year,” Morris said later. “And the first thing we did before we got together was we let that s— go. It’s a new season; it’s a new team.”
“The chemistry is amazing,” Clippers forward Paul George said. “It’s a real bond. It’s fun, with this team, it’s locked in, we are together; it is one of the best locker rooms I have been around and been in.
“Hopefully, you guys see it, just how well we are meshing. We are going to continue to build off of that; we like where we are at and like where we are heading, and we want to see this thing play all the way through.”
George has also seen a boost his production, scoring 20 points and grabbing 7 rebounds in the rout.
“It’s a new year,” he said. “We moved on. For some reason, a lot of people haven’t. But we moved on.”
