I hope baron suits up
Per Lisa Dillman’s twitter: “Oh, in the by-the-way department: Baron Davis will be able to play vs. Lakers. Not sure how many minutes the Bearded Distributor can go, tho”
thanks for that
Thornton starting at SF tonight. Make sure you follow Clipperblog’s twitter feed for K.A.’s updates. I’ll be holding it down here in the comments section…if this game ever actually starts. http://twitter.com/clipperblog
Disheartening that the Clippers are down 18-15 despite turning the Lakers over 6 times already. Shot selection is absolutely terrible right now.
Ricky Buckets checks in before Craig Smith or DeAndre Jordan. Dunleavy sticking with this extremely small lineup.
Bad quarter start.
you can tell ronron is bothering him on the release…
Nothing really different. No real spark. They’re playing just hard enough not to get run off the floor but it’ll come sometime in the 2nd.
I was expecting some fire but havent seen much yet.
These guys are fucking awful. Why do I support this team?
Who had Ricky Davis in the “First Clipper to dive after a lose ball” pool? Anyone?
It’s amazing how careless with the ball every Clipper has been tonight. Sloppy, uninspired play.
WTF is baron Davis doing?
Is Dunleavy going to do any coaching? Fire that twat waffle already.
9 turnovers is terrible. Bad shot selection. Bad defensive rotations. R. Davis and A. Thornton are truly terrible.
Just careless turnovers too. 2 failed inbounds attempts. Just inexcusable play so far.
This game is over already
this looks like a team without a coach….
Is this preseason game number 1? WTF how many basic mistakes can we make?
This kinda sloppy crap cant continue for a whole game…..can it?
the coach just said the team is playing solid…..omg
What kind of offense are we running? What would u call this? This is just sad
This is called the “Mike Dunleavy calling the plays so the team is proper fucked”
Craig Smith is a beast. Love this guy.
Craig Smith is a beast. Second unit playing with a bit more fire.
You’re right- at least the second unit is playing with some energy. If mistakes come because the energy level is too high, you can live with that, but that certainly wasn’t the case with the first unit.
Are we sure these aren’t the replacement refs? Getting jobbed out there.
And it’s not like the Lakers need the help.
Come Clips they are beating themselves badly.
sad thing is that the Lakers arent really showing us up. We are chokin
Smith > Griffin
Low blow, I apologize.
Not sure why that showed up here. Clippers’ failings rubbing off on me.
Craig Smith > Mbenga.
At least Mbenga isn’t on the clips. I don’t think I could take more sorry post moves.
Clips over/under 30 turnovers tonight? Better ? why am I shocked by this?
Lakers’ second unit is really bad.
we could use a lil laker bad play
Dunleavy always sounds like he just started following basketball a few weeks ago and is in the middle of “Basketball Coachin for Dummies.”
“Hey, someone’s got to get on the offensive boards.” Brilliant stuff, coach.
At the game. Got quiet in here.
Lakers fans didnt overpay to watch josh powell take 15 footers.
If my Craig Smith boner were any larger it’d be poking my next door neighbor’s ear.
Khloe K came in her Halloween costume, how cute.
Seabiscuit? Oh, right, that’s her natural look.
Actually, she came as Vigo the master of evil.
Attention all Clippers. Stop fouling. MOVE YOUR FEET. Lakers on pace to shoot 40+ free throws tonight.
last year this coach didnt play Gordon at the beginning of the year..tonight its Jordan
It will be interesting to see if Baron starts the second half- he didn’t play at all in the second quarter and may be hurting a bit. Telfair and his unit were much more effective anyway.
Hurting? Did you see something happen?
He’s had a foot problem the past couple of weeks.
Put Gordon on fisher so dude stops getting bs fouls called for touching kobes aura.
Clippers are probably down 16-20 without Craig Smith’s contributions. The bench guys really stepped it up that period.
all this talk about running and it seems like we have the same slow ass uninspired team from last year
Baron needs to step it up or bassy will start tomorrow. Why don’t they have Gordon and butler on the floor at the same time? They could be spreading the floor for our bigs.
Play DJ more!!! Bring in Novak for the 3′s and complete the rotations! We got lucky because they haven’t been able to hit their 3s
sorry Jordan did play…..how could Smith shoot over 56% last year for Minn. and only avg. 10 points a game..Why didnt he get more shots and pt??? Anyone know?
Good question- my guess would be that he didn’t get a lot of looks because Minnesota preferred to run their offense through Jefferson and Love. He was also in foul trouble a lot when he played extended minutes, so that many have something to do with it.
Let’s see if clips are awful after half time pep talk. They were awful straight out of half last year. Coach must be very inspirational….
Worst second half team in the league last year.
is blake griffin ever going to SIT THE F DOWN?
What the fuck, Baron?!
i cringe anytime the ball goes anywhere near Chris Kaman
we are playing horrible….Baron Davis looks lost this early….the Clippers better play well and not feel sorry for themselves or they are going to lose the little fan support they still have….
luckily we play the Suns tomorrow and they suck
I like Kaman shooting the ball with 1 dribble or less like he is doing, but a lot of them are outside shots and I’m not as confident as those but at least they’re closer than Baron’s shot tonight. Come on BD, you should own the opposing PG’s.
i could picture baron davis
“fuck this blake is out imma just get hurt and chill for the rest of the year”
Doesn’t look like Baron has it tonight- might be time to sit him and let him rest his foot fully and roll with Telfair.
That’s how you run a fast break. RUN DAMMIT!
nice to see us get within a couple scores but we can bever rally long enough for it to mean anything
Clippers just barely hanging around…gotta figure the Lakers will step on the gas soon here. Start of the 4th will be the time the Clippers will have to make their run against the Lakers bench.
Thorton can’t do anything right tonight except get crappy rebounds. His shot selection leaves everything to be desired. Oh me oh my! I wish it was Ralph’s voice I was listening to.
Is there a pair of 7 footers in the league that shoot more jumpers than Kaman and Camby?
It’s better than Baron & Al shooting tonight at least.
Gordon rules! I love that guy!
6 offensive boards for Thornton! That’s gotta be some sort of personal record.
Disconcerting that we have taken a total of 7 free throws tonight. Need to attack the rim better.
Baron has been terrible offensively, but he’s done the best job out of anyone on Kobe in post up situations. Let’s see how Butler fares here.
TELFAIR with the dime!
Wow, awesome 3rd quarter for the Clippers! Who woulda thunk it. I love this game!
Great end to the half there- I think Dunleavy found his crunch time lineup tonight, if the game gets there.
Clippers really need to come out and make their run while the Lakers starters (presumably) rest to start the 4th. Telfair and Craig Smith need to be on the floor here.
oy, 2 fouls in the first minute of the final period isn’t great.
he didn’t touch it
Our inability to rebound is coming back to haunt the clippers. Too many second chances.
i hate these refs helping the lakers in the 4th, gordon didn’t foul lamar
And here comes the customary 4th quarter collapse…
They are absolutely terrible whenever EJ checks out…. Will someone explain to him that he can’t pick up stupid fouls?
Baron is 1-9 from the field. Yikes. Can’t get to the rim, can’t make a shot. Hard to win when he is such a minus.
Telfair & Smith have been really encouraging though!!!
No one seems to want to box out Odom. A. Thorton should be the 10th man off the bench.
That Odom three is a backbreaker.
If only our starters would be as fun to watch as our bench. It’s not something we Clipper fans are used to. Baron & Al & even Butler for that matter are having awful shooting nights & it has to get better. First game with so much hype & hope i hope they are just trying to do too much and making things worse. Even Jordan hasn’t looked to stellar.
The NBA. Where grunting and yelping like school girl will get you free throws
Seriously 37 fta – 16 fta
The collapse is officially complete.
Good to see MDSr still can’t coach in the 4th quarter.
The lack of enthusiasm or effort is insane. It’s game one and the apathy had set in.
‘Twas a very sloppy, very ugly game. It’s like preseason never even happened.
What do you guys think about Rondo? It looks like he’ll be a restricted free agent next year and I would love to swing a sign-and-trade as I believe the Celtics would match any offer (unless the relationship deteriorates even further.)
Who would the clips give up?
i think we need to address the SF positional needs before we go for Rondo.
same ole story….we get within 2 ….and ITS LIKE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OVER THE HUMP….we either take and miss horrible shots …or turn the ball over…it never changes…
had Baron Davis played atleast a mediocre game we would have probably won…..
all is not bad though Eric Gordon is our future and we better covet this guy…hes the type of guy i can see us retiring his jersey…..
on a positive note…..we shoud win tomorrow….if we do not beat the fucking SUNS…….
the season is over…
we should not lose against any team that does not have a Kobe Bryant….
thats how confident I am when we play good (if we do )
wow nice confidence..
by the way Al Thornton is horrible….he shoots when he is a horrible shooter….his thing is driving and he never does it …..
