Its unbelievable but we are top 4 in offense and defense.

Off Rtg: 110.4 (4th of 30) ▪ Def Rtg: 100.8 (4th of 30)

Also in terms of SRS (Simple Rating System-based on point differential and strength of schedule) we are 2nd in the league.

Oklahoma City Thunder (1) 9.11

Los Angeles Clippers (2) 9.01

gap

San Antonio Spurs (4) 7.37

Memphis Grizzlies (3) 7.27

New York Knicks (1) 6.30

Miami Heat (2) 6.08

huge gap

Atlanta Hawks (3) 2.31

the rest

Right now there are only six teams that are relevant and we are in the top two. As long as we keep playing with intensity we will likely make it to the WCF and we have a good chance of making it to the Finals.

We are a totally different team from last year when our starters played heavy minutes and we were a below average defensive team.

Have you guys looked at Hollinger's daily playoff odds? We are ranked #1 to make it to the finals and win. Keep in mind that these stats change daily, but it is nice to see Hollinger's math work WITH the Clippers instead of AGAINST for once lol

When you look at the intensity of Blake Griffin and CP3 setting an example, how can you NOT be in that conversation, Griffin is a monster on defense, just bulldozes his way on offense, you guys see that fast break from Griffin yesterday? This is 2nd or 3rd time he just bulldozes his guys to make space for that fast break lob, AMAZING!

Our defense has looked top notch and we were expected to be one of the best offensive teams this season, so no real surprise there.

Now I think the one area we need to improve on is rebounding. Most of the elite teams in the league right now, aren't among the league leaders in RPG, matter of fact only the Memphis Grizzlies are in the top 10 in that category.

I think if we're able to improve in this area, while continuing to do the things that have brought us early success so far, we'll be able to truly separate ourselves from the rest of the NBA's elite, and become the favorites to win the NBA Championship this year.

We've looked dominant in just about all aspects, and on both sides of the floor. We have the size, the athleticism, and the personnel down low, to be of the best rebounding teams in the league. In my opinion, finding away to dominate this area, along with getting 100% healthy, will be the final steps to us asserting ourselves as the best team in the league.

Playoffs are totally different than regular season. It will all depend on our health and also matchups. I know we can beat Memphis but I prefer to avoid them as they are a grind it out team that will take a lot out of Blake and CP.

It's still early in the season and the numbers look good but I know this team can be better. 3 point defense and rebounding are areas to improve on.

I really hope refs don't start catching on to that. That's the second game in a row i watched him just toss a guy out of the way to get an alley oop.

I really feel like I'm controlling the world with this post because I don't wanna jinx anything, but as long as we stay healthy I don't see why we aren't a legitimate threat to win it all. On the plus side, I think we're the deepest team in the game so if we do have a few injuries (not catastrophic ones) we can probably shrug it off. On the down side I'm not sure how thin we would become with injuries. The way it is now is close to perfect. I'm not sure how it would work if it's shaken up.

I think Trollinger is probably too busy cooking up schemes to ruin the Grizzlies now, LOL.
