Daniel Theis Aims for NBA Title with Los Angeles Clippers

Daniel Theis is aiming for the NBA title with the Los Angeles Clippers. “You’ve seen how well we can play when everyone is fit. We had a run with 25 wins and five defeats. Now we’ve gradually had small injuries. Until the playoffs it’s about us all being as fit as possible are possible. And then the championship is the goal,” Theis told the SID.

The 31-year-old moved to LA from the Indiana Pacers last November and has been an impressive role player ever since. The center quickly found his way around the star ensemble of Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, Paul George and the currently injured Russell Westbrook.

“Because I played in the NBA for a few years and often played against them, it happened relatively quickly. And in the end everyone has a goal,” said Theis.

In the hunt for the championship ring, which would be the first in the club’s history, there is no room for big egos. “Of course, most of them have already achieved many personal goals – MVP awards, Allstar, etc. Now the championship is at the top,” said Theis: “That’s why it’s important that everyone puts their personal goals aside and subordinates themselves to the team’s success.”

The Clippers are currently in fourth place in the Western Conference play-off race, and Theis and Co. will meet the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday (8:30 p.m./ProSieben and DAZN).
