After nearly every baseline cut, Clippers guard Eric Gordon penetrated, squared up to the basket and swished a three-point shot. By sinking five consecutive three-pointers in one segment during his 20-minute shooting session following Thursday's practice, a remote control was not necessary to replay his shooting stroke. With Gordon absent for nine of the last 12 games, his shooting clinic provided a reminder of what the Clippers have been sorely lacking.
