There are a lot of great matchups to watch in the Clippers vs. Rockets second round matchup. The Clippers primarily used J.J. Redick on James Harden during the season, and it worked with Harden shooting just 38.5 percent. Will Trevor Ariza slow the hobbled Chris Paul? Then there is the question of how the Clippers deal with Josh Smith of the bench if he plays like he did in the Dallas series.
Then there is Dwight Howard vs. DeAndre Jordan.
That’s the one Jenna Corrado and I discuss in this latest PBT Extra. Howard missed all four regular season matchups between these teams and he certainly changes the dynamic. Plus, neither of these guys is used to being matched up on a big as athletic as they are. It will be fun.

However, if you think this was the only – or even just the second – error in award balloting, you’re probably fooling yourself. These things happen. Kudos to Haynes for addressing it so promptly, which was the only good recourse at this point.
Hopefully, these problems just avoided in the future, but I’m not counting on it.
