Desperation apparently makes even stupid, simple, and stubborn, men like
VDN do smart things. At least this is the lesson of tonight. This would probably have been the season’s worst loss and it was headed that way and seemed almost a certainty by the middle of the 4th until VDN, the stubborn man, did something born of desperation that turned the tide . . .
he played Bledsoe with Paul. No Willie Green or useless Lamar Odom or Ryan Hollins, Bledsoe with Paul. The combination that is the Clippers’ only real hope of going anywhere in the playoffs and VDN used it tonight.
Despite VDN trying his damndest to kill Bledsoe’s confidence all season long with lack of time – that he earned and deserved over run of the mills playing in his stead – Bledsoe came through and turned the tables and the Clippers got the win.
Amazing. There might be hope yet.
We’ll see tomorrow if Bledsoe starts.
I know, right? We’ve only been asking for this starting lineup since….preseason. At least the powers that be have graced us with the Backcourt of Doom in the last couple games of the season.
As the old saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of doing the really obvious thing that worked last year and was outstandingly effective in the playoffs, but that you’ve inexplicably avoided for months because you’re a fool and you deserve to be fired.”
ej-jamal-cp3 line up is desperation esp when not rebounding…
Rebounding will be such a problem tomorrow. Matt Barnes had 10, CP had 7.
Blake….4…..DJ…….3……CP equaled their rebounds. Can’t happen tomorrow.
It’s funny how they can say Paul being the best cannot win, but Lebron could not win until he was paired with 2 top players in Dwade and Bosh. Kobe would not have won without Shaq. Boston had to have 3 HOF players. You have to have 2 players with high ball IQ and a developed game. Blake will get there, but is not there yet.
prefer the 4th spot at home vs grizz…don’t like the GS matchup.
The way CLips defend the 3….no way
