Clippers Keep Up Their Utah Tradition

The L.A. Clippers have a long-standing tradition of letting their hosts win when they visit Utah, which they have only violated once in 29 times! Even so, ending up at 112-90 seems a bit too generous, don't you think?

By the 4th quarter, my mind was wandering (as were the Clippers' -- they only scored 18 points that period to Utah's 33). It struck me that Utah's talented Carlos Boozer has a rather difficult surname to deal with anyway, but to wear it around in the dry homeland of the Latter Day Saints...but maybe it gives him an extra nudge: with a name like Boozer, he has to be good!
