Clippers await big-time delivery from Chauncey Billups

The Clippers admit they’re taking a cautious approach with Billups but are hoping that once the playoffs begin, Mr. Big Shot will be in his usual clutch form.
“He’s a little bit older now, he missed most of last season and a lot of this season (with his Achilles’ tendon injury),” Del Negro said. “That’s not as easy to do. We still expect a lot from him, his leadership, he can make shots, he gives us another guy that can make plays.
“He’ll get Chris with more live dribbles at times, he can run the break. At the end of games, they call him Big Shot for a reason. He can make free throws. He’s another weapon we’d like to use as much as we can, as much as he can handle physically.”
