After their 140-114 blowout loss against the Memphis Grizzlies yesterday, the Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell gave an interview by saying they are not a great team. Despite the fact, they had all of their players available for the Grizzlies, they weren’t able to secure a win and played weak defense throughout the entire game.
Harrell said the team needs to wake and realize they are not great and how a lot of work still needs to be done if they want to be the best team in the league.
“We’re not a great team. We’re not a great team. We just came together this year. We have two players that haven’t been a part of this team last year and have a player that won an NBA championship with another team last year. I think that’s what we need to realize and wake up. We’re a team that still has to figure out things to win the night in and night-out.”
The reporter also asked Harrell about the vibe in the locker room after the Grizzlies loss, and he implied there might be some problems there as well.
“I don’t know, brother. That may be another problem right there.”
The Clippers beat the Knicks today in a close game 135-132 and currently won four out of their last six games. They are now on the 4th spot in the western conference, which is something they haven’t expected coming into the new year simply because the expectations were set hight at the beginning of the season. Even though there are still a lot of games in the regular season, it’s evident the Clippers are still figuring things out, which might take longer than everyone initially expected.
