News: Redick had his second consecutive poor shooting night to start the season Friday, scoring 15 points in 33 minutes, but making just three of his nine field goals.
Impact: Redick was able to do most of his damage at the charity stripe against the Lakers, making all eight of his free-throws. He opened up the season against the Thunder on Thursday with just five points in 30 minutes (1-10 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT). Still, Chris Douglas-Roberts only played 14 minutes, so Redick seems to be safe in his starting role for now.
News: Griffin was all over the floor Friday night against the Lakers, scoring 39 points (13-23 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 11-12 FT).
Impact: In addition to his scoring outburst, Griffin also had seven rebounds and four assists. He's now scored a total of 62 combined points in his first two games. The surrounding a possible MVP season for Griffin seems to be totally reasonable at this point in the season.
News: Davis (groin) is not expected to play in Friday's game against the Lakers, Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: With this news, Davis will miss the first two games of the season and the severity of his injury is still unknown. However, he's currently behind Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Spencer Hawes on the depth chart, so there's no reason to rush him back and cause further injury when the Clippers have enough man power in the frontcourt as it is. The next opportunity for Davis to make his season debut will be against the Kings on Sunday.
