Unfortunately, I fully expect Hampton to be out of the rotation tonight with Ross back.

MCW -> Randle
Bacon -> Ross
Ennis -> Porter
Okeke -> Birch
Birch -> Bamba -> Carter

Is what I expect to see. Hope I'm wrong.

No Hampton today would be maddening.

Sit Bacon and Enbis rather than bench RJ.

MCW is good to go? Sit him down and give his minutes to RJ

I will let this game play out first before I get angry lol. Between Ross and Bacon, no one is going to see the ball with those two black holes.

If Hampton doesn't play, that is just downright foolish

Ugh..the Clips are missing too many key players... Ross is back, Birch is still starting. It feels like today is going to be 1 of those days....smh

in his pre-game press conference, Cliff said Harris should be back in 10 days. Cole should play the 1st or 2nd game after the trip. With a healthy Harris, Ross, Bacon....i really hope RJ can stay in the rotation.

Slightly worried cause PG isn’t playing and the Clippers have lost to some questionable teams this season, and are on the second game of a tough back to back against the Bucks.

When Anthony and Harris return, I’m expecting the rotation to look like this...

Anthony/Harris/Bacon/Okeke/Birch
MCW/Ross/Ennis/Porter/one of Carter/Bamba

With Hampton and the loser of the Carter/Bamba duel out of the mix.

They should have traded Ross it is going to be painful watching him and bacon shoot 30-40% on 15-18 shots. While RJ rides the bench. He should get RJ into the game at least for 10 mins

I unfortunately think MCW will be ahead of Anthony too

That starting lineup infuriates me (except for Okeke)

Already annoyed at this West Coast trip and can't wait for it to end. This is way too late.

If Birch doesn't fall out of the rotation, Clifford will be out of a job this summer. We're in full rebuild phase and the development of those two is tied with Weham's job security. They both have to play. We have decisions to make.

Clips handed it to the Bucks last night, they should have no problem thrashing this Magic team.

Anyone brave enough to do a shot every time Ross shoots?

Also, I agree with everyone that if it's mostly the vets playing that Cliff would have to go. I'm cool with him trying to win games. But he'll have to try to win them while mostly playing the young guys.

If he DNPs RJ in game two, and plays f***ing Randle instead, he should be fired on the spot by Weham
I still believe in Magic!
Okeke / Isaac / WCJ front court for the future.

Fun fact: The Magic have not scored even 100 points against the clippers in the last 5 games.
