Clippers Bench: Better than half the starting fives in the NBA

Tonight's match-up with the Los Angeles Clippers is bound to be tough for our Celtics. The Los Angeles Clippers bench is currently averaging the most points (42.7) of any team’s bench since 2000. Here is the 2012-2013 Clippers bench:

C, Ronny Turiaf (12 min), former Celtic-legend Ryan Hollins (11 min)

PF, Lamar Odom (17.5 min, 23 min/game in December)

SF, Matt Barnes (25.7 min)

SG, Jamal Crawford (29.3 min)

PG, Eric Bledsoe (18.4 min).

The Clippers are currently 22-6 heading into tonight’s game with the Celtics, having won 14 straight games. In addition to leading the league in bench points, the Clippers bench is dominating on the defensive end. According to hoopstats.com, the Clippers are leading the NBA in bench steals (4.9), are 2nd in bench blocks (3.7) and are 1st in efficiency (a stat that combines pretty much everything) and efficiency difference.
