Chris Kaman, sage?
Chris Kaman probably sensed this one was coming. When you've been around the Clippers as long as Kaman, you don't take anything for granted.
"Our wins are against pretty good teams, actually which is kinda weird," Kaman said before the Clippers played the Kings. "We should be able to beat some of the teams that you’re supposed to beat."
And they made it that much more difficult Monday night, blowing a 17-point lead before coming back to beat Sacramento, 98-91. They did it without Kaman (sprained left ankle) and Brian Cook (two-game suspension).
Kaman will be getting an MRI exam on his ankle on Tuesday. He re-injured it in the first half at Portland on Sunday.
"I’m more frustrated than in pain," he said. "I just want to play and I’m tired of sitting out."
He played limited minutes at Denver and at Portland and was concerned he may have come back too early.
"I’m not doing anything on the bench. I’m not helping nobody," Kaman said. "It’s rough for me, mentally, to sit there and watch. I try to play and I’m not really at 100 percent.
"I think it’s going to be OK."
