You might say the Clippers were wounded both physically and mentally.
There was Marcus Camby, who tweaked his left ankle in the first quarter and had to come out of the game in visible discomfort less than two minutes into Friday night's game at Utah.
"I don't even remember what happened," said Camby, who went on to finish with six points and 13 rebounds in the 111-98 loss to the Jazz. "I remember rolling it. It was a big game. I had to get right back at it. I didn't want to sit out and let it get stiffened up. I'll be all right for tomorrow."
Then there was Al Thornton, who was two-for-10 shooting, had two turnovers and seemed out of sorts.
"To be honest, I think I'm settling too much," Thornton said. "I need to attack. . . . I think I'm doing the opposite. I've got to switch it up, that's all."
