Only if you cut the corners of the paper you're holding.

They still don't have a viable crunch time lineup for the playoffs. Two of their three guards are defensive liabilities, and the other one picks up stupid fouls. I do like the addition of Ibaka, but he is years removed from being an elite rim protector, so the Clippers will still have problems defensively.

Finally, the lack of chemistry means their off ball defense will be a huge challenge to build this year.
