Aiming for a 11:00 p.m. PST start time.

Is a cold Matt Barnes on one foot our best option at 3? Who can we turn to defend if he doesn’t bounce back?
Barnes’ defense and cutting are crucial elements + his quick passes. He should definitely start but I’m cool with bringing Granger in the game earlier.
Chris Paul has an injured hamstring, and he’s playing great defense.
Chris Paul hero ball almost lost them Game 3.
He’s not getting them into the offense, he’s dribbling away the shot clock, and playing at a Vinny Del Negro pace. He’s been below average as a Point Guard this entire series.
This should be a major topic of discussion tonight. Thoughts?
Chris Paul is losing his ability to score in the clutch. The more he trusts in Blake Griffin to be Mr. Clutch, the better Paul will be in the clutch.
It’s not his scoring that’s the problem, it’s his Point Guard play.
He’s reverting back to all his old bad habits that Doc and the entire coaching staff have been trying to break all year long.
That’s why the only way Paul can get past the second round is if he plays side kick. In the playoffs, big men are valued more, so you have to trust your bigs like hell. Griffin must be the Batman in the playoffs. Dwayne Wade did it for LeBron James, and the results were 3 Finals appearances and “not one, but two rings.”
Blake Griffin runs the half court offense better than Paul. In fact, I would put Collison at the #1 and make Paul play at the #2. When the Warriors throw big bodies at him, his tendency is to over dribble and he isn’t breaking into the open spaces to make a quality play.
Does anybody have a small forward the Clippers could borrow for a few games? 2 out of 3 games they have gotten nuthing from that position… and that was before Barnes needed his toe amputated on live TV
Donald Sterling fired Vinny Del Negro despite loving the man. Joe Lacob would want nothing more than to fire Mark Jackson despite what he did for the Warriors. What does Jacob’s relation with Mark Jackson say about Donald Sterling?
It’s basically a wrap. Next game will be tough but the Clippers are obviously the superior team. The loud lousy warrior fans can stay home. They should fire their gimmick coach. Actually keep him. Good win for the Clippers.
No question here.
Please discuss the late game foul on Paul where he hoists the three. I’m still not clear on how this is being reffed
Big win for the Clips but there is a lot of room for improvement. Paul and Collison are not shooting well or making great decisions. Redick has been great and Crawford provided key scoring at times when the game could’ve turned against the Clippers. Barnes has been shooting poorly and I think Dudley should get a few minutes.
People on hear taking about how bad CP3 is need to check themselves… He has a hammy, and was playing with a fever tonight, and killing on D. Yes he went a little hero ball tonight, but alot of that was a tired Blake and ZERO movement on offense. Clips and CP3 are fine, and will continue to get better going forward…
Some people only see numbers. They don’t look at the game as a whole. I guess CP should not be affected by a injured hammy. I guess running around after Curry should feel like a light jog. Ignore the fact that he has THE toughest assignment in this series compared to any other clipper. Don’t tell them about being tired. He should be a super human and play tough D on Curry and Thompson, while scoring 20 on 10 shots while dishing 12 assists. People want to make him the scapegoat even when they win. Did you forget how your hero Blake missed 7….yes 7 free throws? and one of those was at the same time CP missed one. He scored 7 points in the 4th to give them a 8 point lead AND successfully guarded the possible game winning shot.
You guys are so pro Blake nowadays that its turned you anti CP and its the silliest thing Ive seen on clips boards. you want him to be perfect every single game and its just unrealistic. stop being so unreasonable.
Question: Is Jack Armstrong Winter your real name or did you change it when you realized you wanted to run for President one day?
