man it’s sad to think that the player we got for Bledsoe can’t even see the floor when all our wings are injured. I think Sterling may have been right after all.
Exactly! Just seeing him on the bench pissed me off. When CP is getting beat up like a punch bag and Blake is nowhere near who he has been for months. This dude Dudley can’t get out of his warm ups?
Will you guys actually talk Clippers tonight? No fawning over some other teams player for 10 minutes. No crappy musicians or celebrities. Clippers basketball please.
Frustrating game, but I can’t really be upset because the team was undermanned and playing at Denver on the tail end of a back to back. Should Blake have been rested a little? He looked exhausted out there.
Denver employed traps above the break on the ballhandler (mostly Paul) and forced a bunch of turnovers and poor possessions. Why couldn’t paul or anyone else on this team with strong ballhandlers exploit this strategy? Ballstopping on the wing with Granger? Paul failing to make his outlet passes quickly?
i think this will be how playoff teams will deal with paul (they did so last year)…blake has to be ready to take the offense burden on like he has recently!
Why do our bigs let bigs like Hickson and Mosgov look better than them? I get so tired of opposing bigs outworking, out hustling, out smarting us. I get they are tired. I get its a back to back. But CP damn near hurt every part of his body tonight and was still playing hard. And he has less back up than they do.
Not blaming DJ and Blake by any means. But its a trend i notice. the rebounds are a concern for the playoffs.
I don’t take any stock in the game against the Nuggets with rebounding being an issue. Doc’s teams historically don’t crash the offensive glass and try to limit transition points for the other team. The rebounding disparity was because of tired legs. DEN even though they just came back off the road are still used to playing in altitude so they were able to get up and down better. The loss was not for a lack of effort because the effort was there. They did play hard which is reflected in the game being close wire to wire. Execution was just sloppy and you can’t extrapolate much if anything out of this game as a concern for the playoffs.
On the ESPN broadcast, Jon Barry compared DeAndre Jordan to Kevin Garnett, his ability to call defensive plays and all. But we know that Blake Griffin is supposed to be Doc’s KG. If Jordan is KG, then who do you see Griffin more akin to in relation to Doc’s 2008 championship team? Or should he be compared to the following players: Karl Malone, Shawn Kemp, Charles Barkley and Tim Duncan?
Is there a better city in the United States right now to start your 4 day vacation? Herbal remedies being passed around the Clipper locker room tonight 😉
haha…someone gonna miss their team plane!
FORGET THE LOSS JAMAL CRAWFORD LIVE-TWEETED!
Andrew, tell Seerat that my Preventions metric covers 3-point defense. I have the first 60 games tabulated. If you want, I can send her the spreadsheet.
the best playoff outcome for LAC is to stay in 3rd and hope that GSW can pass Portland into 5th place. Memphis seems likely to pass Dallas/Phoenix and take the 7th spot. then the pairings would be SAS-Dallas, OKC-Memphis, LAC-Portland, and HOU-GSW.
