Indiana Pacers 107, Los Angeles Clippers 80
I think it’s safe to christen the Clippers the worst team in the league this year. They’re 1-12 and have lost their last eight games. They’re the third worst offensive team in the league and the fourth worst defensively. Basically, they’re the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA.

Portland Trail Blazers 86, Denver Nuggets 83
As far as incredible, highlight-worthy shots go, it’s been a tough week for Chauncey Billups. First, he had a 75-foot bomb waived off on an extremely dubious travel call.
