All series long, the Los Angeles Clippers have had a clear defensive strategy: Trap Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, force the ball out of their hands, and dare Al-Farouq Aminu or Maurice Harkless to beat you with their jumpers.
Monday night in Portland, Aminu did just that dropping 30.
His shooting helped key Portland’s Game 4 win, evening the series at 2-2. Due to injuries to key Clippers (Chris Paul, Blake Griffin) Portland may pull off the upset win in this series now and advance. And Aminu will deserve some credit for that.
