Special guest Brian Kamenetzky from Land O’Lakers Blog and I talk ball about tonight’s teams and matchup. Know thy opponent: Breene Murphy: The Lakers front line is thin right now, Pau’s playing lots of minutes, so how have they defended opposing bigs? What has been their weakness?[...]
Should the Clippers have blown the Kings out? Should the Clippers have lost? Was it just right? Yes to all of those. The Clippers oscillated between looking terrible, like coherent team and like a team just good enough to beat the Kings. On the whole the Clippers are still just good enough to beat a[...]
The road has not been good to the Clippers this year and last night was just another example. The Clips came out flat and fought their way almost all the way back only to make stupid mistakes in the final minutes to lose the game. Their confidence in tight situations on the road doesn’t seem t[...]

Three days after Turkey Day, the Clippers better be ready now. Watching that first quarter on Friday against the Suns, it was clear that the Clippers players weren’t ready to play. How else can you explain 42 points in the first quarter? The defense should have the goal of holding teams to 42 [...]
Just when I had written off this season and this game, the Clippers go out and play their most spirited game of the year. The New Orleans Hornets probably thought the same thing I did and came into this game thinking that they were going to walk all over the Clippers just like almost every other tea[...]
This video encapsulates my feelings about this night. The play is just magnetic, look at how easily Blake makes that reverse slam look. It’s efficient strength, coordination and focus. But when you watch it the second and third time you start to pick up on things. Just how bad was that pass in[...]
