Lou Williams is putting up big numbers for the Clippers off the bench

He is simply called the “professional scorer.”

And that truly is what Lou Williams has been for the Clippers during this strenuous season of losing and falling teammates.

Williams’ job has been to come off the bench and provide the Clippers with a scoring burst.

He has not disappointed.

Preview: Clippers Try to Snap Losing Streak in Cleveland

The Clippers will look to end a 6 game losing streak tonight in Cleveland against the Cavs. Standing in their way: LeBron James.

When: Friday, November 17, 2017 at 4:30 PM PT

Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio

How to Watch: Prime Ticket, AM 570

Projected Starting Lineups:

Clippers: Austin Rivers, Sindarius Thornwell, Wes Johnson, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

Cavaliers: Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Jae Crowder, Kevin Love

Injuries:

Clippers: Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia, Out), Danilo Gallinari (strained left glute, Out), Patrick Beverley (sore right knee, Doubtful)

Cavaliers: Isaiah Thomas (hip, Out), Derrick Rose (ankle, Doubtful), Tristan Thompson (left calf strain, Out)

The Cavaliers started off the season horribly, but have now won three games in a row, mostly behind the brilliance of LeBron James. The King is still unbowed and unbroken in 2017, and remains the best player in the NBA. The rest of his cast is shakier than in years past, however especially with Isaiah Thomas out. Jae Crowder has been a disappointment thus far in Cleveland, and Kevin Love hasn’t been as impactful as he was last season. Old friend Jeff Green has played surprisingly well so far, but we know how shaky that support is. It’s also no shock that the Cavs have compiled their streak without erstwhile starting point guard Derrick Rose, who has been a negative NBA player for several years now.

The Clippers, meanwhile, are the losers of six straight games. They’ve competed in all the contests, and probably should have won at least one or two, but have collapsed down the stretch. While fans have complained about the lack of movement on offense, the real issue has been that the Clippers can’t stop anyone on the other end. They are the 21st ranked defense in the NBA, and they simply aren’t going to make the playoffs if they continue playing that poorly.

Check out Lucas’ podcast with Chris Manning, the editor-in-chief of the SB Nation’s Cavs blog, Fear the Sword, which can be found here. They do an in-depth preview of the game, as well as a discussion of each team’s season so far.

Game thread will be up prior to the game as usual. Go Clippers!

Clippers Send Williams, Johnson to Agua Caliente, Call Up Jamil Wilson

Some third string shuffling between the NBA and G-League

Yesterday, the L.A. Clippers announced that they had assigned Brice Johnson to the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario, their NBA G-League affiliate. LAC also transferred two-way player C.J. Williams back to ACCO and pulling Jamil Wilson, their other two-way player, up to the NBA roster.

Williams made his NBA debut this week but played only a total of 27 seconds across two games for the Clippers. Wilson has never played in the NBA but seems to be held in higher regard by Doc Rivers’ staff and could have a chance to make his debut tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Brice Johnson has bounced back and forth between LAC and ACCO, but seems unlikely to get real minutes in a crowded frontcourt behind players like Wesley Johnson, Sam Dekker, and Montrezl Harrell. The Clippers recently declined Johnson’s team option for the 2018-19 season, showing a lack of faith in the former first round pick.

Clippers have lost six in a row and are 'pretty banged up' before facing Cavaliers

The 2017-18 NBA campaign began with a sense that the Clippers would be loaded this season but it would take the sum of all the parts for them to prosper.

A 4-0 start to the season seemed to bear that out before injuries robbed the Clippers of their depth, leaving them in a weakened state.
