Easily the worst coached game by Doc all year long. No offensive adjustments to get Blake space or get Blake on the move.
And Doc the GM has left Doc the coach with no good options once DJ or Blake leave the floor.
That’s not on Doc, for me, Blake was looking like his old self, not the Super Star New Blake that Clippers need. He was not aggressive, he was TO the ball way too much and he was letting his frustration take over. And Doc did make ways for Blake, he just missed easy shots that he usually makes but I don’t mind that as much as I do mind Griffin settling for jumpers, gathering silly fouls out of frustration and so on. And in the end, the TO and rebound killed the game for the Clippers, it wasn’t the coaching, that’s for sure.
It’s on Doc and Alvin Gentry to game plan.
The best offense in the NBA can’t be undone by simply running two guys at the PF.
Once GS understood Chris Paul was limited they began focusing on Blake, the Clippers haven’t adjusted. Therefore 3 out of the last 4 games they been held under 100 points.
You are overrating that stat line in several levels and by doing that, overlooking every other factor that is much more important to undertand why the Clippers lost.
I understand why the Clippers have lost 3 games to a clearly inferior Golden State team while holding Curry and Thompson to low field goal percentages.
It’s the offense that’s the problem. And all I keep hearing from Doc and the players is how the offense will take care of itself, and guess what? It’s not.
Would you say, the Clippers offense is working against them?
Game was there for the taking all night. Hopefully they can execute next game. You live to coach another game Mark Jackson.
It seems that basketball twitter is discussing everything related to this series except the fact that Chris Paul can barely move. Shouldn’t that be the talking point about a team that could make a Finals run if he’s healthy?
I guess, if he’s playing you can’t use injuries as an excuse. He’s obviously limited but no one wants to hear that. I just wish they would take him off Curry sometimes. Maybe he could score more if he got a break from defending him
3 out of the last 4 games the best offense in the NBA has been held under 100 points.
The guards are running the shot clock down or they’re force feeding Blake in the post, then he holds onto the ball. Any of that sound familiar?
It’s the “Chris Paul offense featuring Blake Griffin passivity” from the previous 2 years.
I don’t see a Championship level offense right now.
Im so confused what has happened to Blake. I thought he took that next step of being aggressive so CP would’ t be the focus. CP has gone back to dribbling and Blake has gone back to standing around.
What has happened to the hi low big man passing the Clips killed with in the regular season?
Chris Paul has a lower body injury, again.
Chris Paul has a thumb injury, again.
At what point do we begin to question the true value of Chris Paul because of his inability to keep his thumbs and legs healthy, especially at the most important time of the year?
See this after every loss so I want to know from somebody if you trade him since he’s so questionable health wise, his value must be low right. he’s always hurt. what do you expect to get back for him? Do people expect to get great value when they themselves don’t see him as worth being on this team. Everybody is wanting to trade him, i wonder if the team will ever do it. With Sterling not selling anytime soon, maybe it would work for both parties.
As much as everybody is looking something to blame, I can’t see any major issue if not for the TO and giving up way too many second chance points.
Secondly I would go to Blake not being the New Blake he needs to be, instead, being that passive Blake that settle for jumpers and take himself out of the game due to his frustration – which lead to silly fouls and him fouling out, AGAIN. Just like I wrote in the comments after GM1, that this could happen again and unfortunately it did.
Clippers need Blake to be aggressive and to know what to do when they DT him, he can’t commit so many TO. After a so so, kind of bleh GM5, I thought Blake would bounce back aggressively, but he didn’t, he better do for GM7, last chance.
Regardless of the Sterling thing, nobody would care about it if they lose, nobody will care about injuries or anything, those will just become an excuse if even quoted and the Players and the coach staff know that.
