Well, you finally miss Murray, Barton and Dozier and it shows tonight. Rivers did very little, and Morris was off, too. That doesn't help. Ayton and Joker were a draw. That doesn't help, part 2. Chris Paul went off for his age, and that's part 3.
Remember, they lost game one to Portland at home and looked completely outmatched with perimeter play. That one turned out pretty well. Don't underestimate the MVP . . . they'll bounce back.
