You got to take this question:
Is there a mindset going on for opposing teams that “Clippers rig games to steal wins,” which give these teams an excuse to pull these dirty tricks in an attempt to get players tossed and steal wins their way? Prove to the audience that the Clippers are a good team without using the phrase “just win games.” (Rigging includes flopping, complaining, dirty play, and any kind of activity where the refs or the opposing team are fooled by any of the Clipper players).
17 games to get the new players inserted fully and get these turnovers under control! The last two wins are troubling. You can’t ignore the absence of JJ and JC have had a huge affect. Add to that a hindered CP and the guard position is really thin. If CP doesn’t get healthier by post season, they will struggle. He doesn’t need to be the hero just need him to score more and efficiently.
I noticed he left the bench a couple times and just heard Doc mention him “tweaking his leg” Can you guys get the meaning of that?
I liked the Karl Malone dunk homage by Blake. The Mail Man is the player Blake most resembles in body type and playing style. Do you think he could become a Karl Malone 2.0 or close?
These dirt bag tactics by teams are tiring. But it seemed to work this time because Blake did look frustrated and picked up two quick offensive fouls.
Hes already better than Malone in my opinion. Hes got skills Malone never even tried to develop.
Here’s a comment from Sean Newell at Deadspin about why players want Griffin out of the game (URL: http://deadspin.com/p-j-tucker-ejected-for-punching-blake-griffin-1541065517 ):
“I was ‘that kid’ growing up who was always egging people on acting innocent and laughing when they retaliated and got in trouble. Eventually people start going ‘well you’re always involved, how can it always be the other persons fault. You’re the common denominator.’ This time is coming for Blake.”
Teams feel that Griffin always gets away with everything. They just want to see him punished. Just once. And they’re starting to get desperate.
