    Burke is excellent at getting open on his own...he just didn't hit his jumpers. He and Paul are similar size, both intense...this should be a fun duel to watch in coming years. Favors bothered the Clippers inside a lot, even though his stat line looks meager. Lucas looks too much like a boy among men, which isn't knocking his effort which is solid. For all those knocking Corbin for playing Williams and Jefferson too much, I say they are needed because they stretch the cour; they both are relatively accurate 3-ball shooters. Alec Burks should whittle Jefferson's minutes down gradually as the season progresses, though, since he also shows nice 3-ball aptitude and brings more hops and rebounding to the court.
