Aiming for a 10:30 p.m. PST start.

What did you like about Reggie Bullock during the extended time of gar-bage? Could Bullock become a starter with some team in the future, like how Reggie Miller proposed? He said that Turkoglu, Granger, Davis and Green were all starters.
Despite the worst loss in Lakers’ regular season history, I so wanted a 50 pts difference.
2nd or 3rd time Blake doesn’t get a Triple Double because he didn’t play 4Q.
It’s good to win.
It’s even better to flood Staples with Laker blood when the red, purple and gold festoons the rafters like the entrails of a slaughtered pig. That was downright ritualistic.
How do you guys think the chemistry of the new bench coming along? I’ve really loved how Turk and Baby have embraced what they are doing and I’m enjoying rooting for Danny Granger to find his game again. What are your impressions about them individually and collectively?
Love the new bench. Anyone recall Collison’s dunk attempt down Lane? That was quite the statement. Lakers could not recover from the smallest Clipper trying to dunk on them.what does it do to you when Darren Collison is trying to dunk in a crowded lane? What does that say?
I wish the lakers 20 years of futility. Clippers rise!
For the sake of keeping the CBL interesting I think it would be nice – if you were still watching – to analyse the garbage time and how some players did.
I liked Bullock, his stroke is so fluid and he always shoot with confidence, he is also a great rebounder, he just needs to get back to move more off the ball and Doc could run some experiments with him and the starters – which doesn’t mean he has to be a starter.
Granger is still prety rusty, he showed how his length can bother on D but he looked 2 steps slow when attacking.
Turkoglu also shot and rebounded pretty well, I know a lot of people bash him, but from what I’ve seen about him, I liked. He has been rebounding well and I think his 3pt% is quite high – despite the low overall FG%.
Perfect 3 for 3 night for Bullock. It is the second game where he had a 3-3. Plus, they were both road games. The first road game: versus the Grizzlies.
For one moment, it looked like Bullock was having a shooting contest with Hedo Turkoglu, who had 3 of 5 3-pointers.
Too bad Bullock couldn’t play enough to showcase his shooting and participate in the Rising Stars.
Turkoglu’s bad FG% is probably because of his lack of hops while trying to shake the rustiness when he got back to play and as such I think he missed a lot under the basket lay ups, getting blocked a lot of times.
Since you’re talking about other teams..what are your thoughts on the Bucks, Raptors, Bobcats, and some of the D league teams. Since we are not talking about the Clipeprs.
The Clippers are more exciting than the Nets, Knicks, Lakers, Kings and Nuggets. But yet you see these teams getting more national TV games than the Clippers. I don’t care if it is New York I don’t want to watch bad teams from New York every week. The Lakers are now in our rear view mirror they are not relevant and won’t be again for quite awhile. I don’t want to watch their sorry brand of basketball. The Nuggets are another joke George Karl for Brian Shaw and he inherited the same players Karl coached to the playoffs, please enough already. The Kings I don’t want to see them again until Demarcus Cousins grows up.
Now that I got all the bad basketball on TV off my chest here’s my take on the Clippers. They are peaking at the right time. They have bought into Doc’s system. Doc has brought in some serious depth to get beyond the first round and into the finals. I agree Granger is rusty, but he is long, he can score and can guard the likes of Kevin Durant.The more he plays and learns the system the rust will wear off and he will be vital coming off the bench. Big Baby is an unmovable object in the paint on defense and he can score from 15 feet out, rebound, and play defense because he knows the system he will learn the players game. Hedo I thought we could do without but this guy has a nose for the ball and can shoot the 3 ball. So I was wrong about Doc picking him up but Doc was right about adding him to the roster and letting Jamison and Mullens go. With Blake, DeAndre, and Big Baby in the paint, and Paul, Collison, Crawfordl, Reddick, Barnes, Dudley, Bullock, Greene, and Granger the Clippers have more outside bombers than the US military. Hey Clipper fans Doc can flat out coach and players want to come play for him because he is a players coach and the love his system. This organization will get better and will win an NBA title under Doc Rivers. If not this year next year. When Charles Barkley speaks sports fans had better listen last night he said the Clippers are the best team in the WEST !
Kings only have one nationally televised game, Nuggets have 13. The Clippers have 21 nationally televised games, and only have less than Chicago, Lakers, Miami, New York and OKC. I don’t really think the Clippers are being disrespected with how many national games they get.
