Bibbs didn't see any game action with the Clippers during his first week and a half in the NBA, but he apparently made enough of an impression in practice and in the G League to garner another 10-day deal. Once his new contract expires in early April, the Clippers will either have to sign him for the remainder of the season or let him enter free agency.
The 23-year-old shooting guard from Virginia Tech will get his first look at the NBA level after averaging 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for the G League's Maine Red Claws this season. With the Clippers vying for a playoff spot, Bibbs doesn't profile as much more than an emergency depth option on the wing and isn't expected to be a regular member of coach Doc Rivers' rotation.
Bibbs scored 30 points (9-14 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and a steal in the win Wednesday over the Charge.
Only four players scored more than 10 points for the Red Claws Wednesday, with one of those players just barely hitting the treshold. Still, Maine was able to secure their 10th win of the season in large part thanks to Bibbs, who was efficient from three, by far exceeding his season average (32.5 percent) from deep.
Thursday's home game versus Grand Rapids was postponed due to a water leak in the roof of the Portland Expo.
A make-up date has yet to be determined. Bibbs has averaged 16.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists through six games in January.
Bibbs posted 22 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals in the loss Friday to the Go-Go.
Bibbs put together a well-rounded line, but was unable to keep up with the Go-Go, particularly Jordan McRae, who tallied a season-high 54 points in the contest. Bibbs has been a relatively quiet contributor for Maine, averaging 12.2 points, 2.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 26 contests.
