Caron hasn't been good since 09. He was average after 09 and then when he came to Clippers he actually declined again. Not a starting quality SF anymore imo.

Wow, Cousins has been benched for the rest of the game. Hell, he's not even on the bench. He could be on his way back to the hotel as we speak.

Does Green do ANYTHING right? Jesus! Even his smart plays fail.

DJ, Butler and Green are the only reason this is close.

Odom is very close to all the way back, but he needs to stop shooting 3s. He's thrown up some serious, serious bricks from there.

Also, its a good thing our defense is improved or we might not still be winning this game by double figures. Offense was very lackluster in the 3rd. Defense let them maintain the lead.

^ I feel like the only way he will get consistency is to keep on shootin

We are doing well considering how many 3s we are missing. Chris Paul has 3 of our 4 three pointers made.... Meaning outside of CP3 we are 1-12 from 3 point land lmao.

Our offense is completely stagnant without Paul running it. Thank god we are an elite defensive team unlike last season.

Crawford and bledsoe struggling. Odom is playing amazing though. Time to get blake, paul, and butler in this game and finish it off with a lineup of paul, barnes, butler, blake, Odom

Ugly game and sloppy performance but I'm happy because 1) we won, 2) Bledsoe got extended minutes, and 3) this is a wake up call to get the team refocused.

I'm not really happy with how lazy we kinda looked down the stretch. I guess that can happen when you win 11 in a row. But on the other hand.....

....WE JUST WON 12 IN A ROW!!!! Very Happy

This game should wake us up a little. Not our best game but these games occur especially with our winstreak.

I did not see Bledsoe's last dunk since my stream was lagging as usual. Someone please post the Youtube vid when it's available.

^^^ Yeah, not the most impressive win of the streak, but I'll take it. The thing is, it shows how much better our D is because this game was never really in reach for the Kings, even though our offense was really lackluster in the 2nd half. That bodes well for down the line.

I haven't read any posts regarding our winning streak on Laker message boards. They usually post a lot when we are on a slump. I know for sure, they'll post again when this streak is snapped.

They are too busy being miserable now that they are a below .500 team. lol

I just checked their forum and this is what I saw.

Do you get angry...

When you see CP3 play so well for the Clippers?

I still do, I don't think I will ever get over the robbery of the Lakers.

If I was only allowed to pick one guy the Lakers could get between CP3 and Dwight.... I would choose CP3.

I forgive you Jimmy Buss and Mitch Kupchak, you had the master plan.

Santa please give us CP3.

Pathetic entitled Lakers fans think they deserve everything. They even throw their own players under the bus saying that they much rather have CP3 over Dwight(well who wouldn't?). Seeing such a spoiled fan base wallow in their misery is entertaining to say the least.

We had about 20 turnovers, which is WAY too many for us...but that's unusual. On the plus side we dominated them on the boards...like, by 21 rebounds! Crawford was pretty terrible tonight, so I expect him to bounce back next time! He better.

Our two stars stats are impressive:

CP3: 24 pts, 5 rebs, 13 asts, 5 stls = +12

BG: 21 pts, 13 rebs, 2 asts, 2 stls, 2 blks = +13

Played our B- game and still won by 12....that's a very good team and one that's going to get even better when at full strength.

But the thing is, I don't think a CP/Kobe pairing would work very well. Both need the ball in their hands too much. CP was a much better fit for our team.

Good, professional win. We had some sloppiness and 'off-nights' but still came through. It's great to see that even when the shooting and the flashy plays are off, we can still find a way to win. Streak or no streak, I'm glad to see the team winning the games elite teams do, even when the ball isn't bouncing for them.

Observations

Willie couldn't hit a shot in shootaround but he'll get over it

Blake's jumper is better each game. By Feb they will have to guard him

Crawford wasn't struggling. They shut him down. Guess what -- Barnes popped 13 Pick your poison You can't shut down Barnes, Jamal and EB

Roni is playing the best of his career

Barnes didn't deserve that technical

Blake doesn't seem unhappy that his stats are down a bit because of less playing time. 36 down to 32 min

What this translates. We can do fine if star X is cold.

Give Kobe a steady diet of guarding Bledsoe and Crawford then a steady diet of Barnes and Hill. Can he do that for 40+ min?

Lamar 9 reb 8 pts 3 assists and he still sucks as compared to what he 'll be by Feb. Stop the 3 pointers. You've always sucked canal water from three.

The team takes pride in playing nastyass defense.

We were a bit sloppy it should have been a 25+ blowout

DJ don't lose faith. The moves are coming. The only way you can really practice is in a game. You will suck for a while (although you don't)

ps

Kobe and CP3 no way. CP3 wouldn't play on "Kobe's Team" and take orders from Coach Kobe "I've got a lot of rings and I ALWAYS know what I'm doing" Bryant

Kobe has already neutered Howard.

Another very solid wi n- Blake and CP3 were really on their game tonight. Blake especially with the rebounding, the jumpers in the first quarter and CP3 hitting the BIG 3's. If CP wasn't on tonight with his 3 point shooting, this game may have gone down to the wire. Odom was very impressive as well defensively and on the boards. His versatility is unmatched on this team- his ability to D up, rebound the miss and ignite the fastbreak is really special. I'm still kind of iffy about him taking 3's, but you can tell he's being smart about it- he's choosing his spots.

Bledsoe a very nice game as well, finishing the game for Jamal who was struggling tonight. It's crazy how many deflections Bledsoe must have had in the game in limited minutes. And that CP3 to EB dunk is probably going to be the top play on Sportscenter tonight- WOW. Also off the bench Turiaf was very good defensively, and Barnes was very good as usual. Matt definitely needs to stop getting T's, however. He was being too demonstrative and it looked like he was flipping off the ref even though he wasn't.

In the third quarter, the offense was getting stagnant and the jumpers weren't falling, and there was the missed dunk as well. I don't know how many dunks DJ has missed so far in the season, but I would not be surprised that he leads the league in missed dunks. He definitely needs to improve in that area. But when you can bring in guys like Crawford, Odom, and Barnes to kind of "reset" the offense and give it a vastly different look, it's tough for Clipper opponents to stop.
