The Clippers’ second unit, in particular, continued to stumble through its getting-to-know-you phase. Lance Stephenson missed all four of his shots and went scoreless. Jamal Crawford had seven turnovers. Josh Smith missed a dunk and threw a pass to fans sitting in the corner because none of his teammates were there to receive the ball.

“They’re really struggling,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said of his reserves, “because they don’t know how to play with each other yet.”

Part of it is to be expected from a team folding in nine new players.
