I'm just waiting for us to clean sweep this month so I can tell Tense2 to eat a dick.

Honestly, I just hope the Clippers don't go in relaxed for the Nuggets and Celtics. After playing all these bad teams, a good team can easily smack knock us back down to Earth.

Even in bad stretches, the Clippers seem to get up for "name" teams like the Celtics and Nuggets (regardless of those teams' actual quality), so I doubt they'll go in too relaxed.

That's a concern I had as well after hearing Ralph and Mike speak about how the Clippers were really loose in the locker room before last nights game. We played pretty sloppy basketball on offense last night but our defense is the real deal. We've held all of our opponents under 100 points this month minus Utah, and held all but 4 of the 12 teams we've beat under 90. I won't doubt the teams focus with a guy like Chris Paul at the helm who demands 100% from everybody around him.
The main reason why I don't think we have....
I don't see our team slacking off against big name teams like the Nuggets or Celtics. I am more worried about us sleeping on teams that we don't perceive as that great. Three out of our six losses were due to lack of effort on the defensive end partially because we did not perceive the other team as a threat.

If anything, it's the Suns tomorrow game I'm worry about. They have a hot shooting streak and beat some good teams during the stretch.

Lol after a bunch of long losing streaks and 20 win game seasons, I'd hope you would be glad
