Can Nate Robinson help the Clippers in the near future ?

Nate Robinson

The L.A clippers have recently signed free agent guard Nate Robinson on a 10-day contract. The question is – will Nate be used as a backup to Chris Paul, or will Doc Rivers be tempted to play him at the Shooting guard spot?

It’s a very unusual signing for the team, as they have just recently acquired the skill set of Austin Rivers, who is son of coach Doc, so it is more than likely that Robinson will be used as an offensive role model at the two guard position.

However, the Clippers have also stated that they wanted his presence due to the experience he holds within the league. He is know for his court IQ, and that leads to spacing for the team who have increased their game on all aspects.

After the All-star break the Clippers have managed a 5-3 record after losing to the Portland Trailblazers the other night and who now look to bounce back against the number one team in the league tonight, Golden State Warriors.

With the Clippers carrying a few injuries, the team are trying to fend off opposition for their 5th seed spot. This seems to be the spot they will continue to occupy until the play-offs where they will likely face Portland or Memphis in the 7-game series.

For the team to progress through the post season they will need their stars to perform, whilst Jamal Crawford will be called upon to make an impact on games. Of course, if Nate Robinson brings what he brought to the likes of Chicago – we could see the Clippers ending the season on a high.
