Fire VDN?

Seems to be the solution for everything else around here.

Very good win. Its hard to believe with a 12 game win streak we are still behind OKC, it goes to show how tough of an opponent OKC is

More great performances by CP3 and Blake Griffin. These two guys really dominated the game. CP3 was taking what the Suns were giving him and scoring at will because the Suns were afraid of him dumping the ball off to Blake or DJ inside. And he still ended up with 13 assists giving our shooters great looks. Blake was a monster inside on the boards and gave a ton of second chances to his team to score. Very nice free throw shooting by him as well. The Suns tried to play "physical" with hard fouls and trash talking, but Blake and the rest of the Clippers didn't back down and blew the game wide open.

Nice to see Jamal break out of his mini-slump with a very nice game. Barnes- what can you say- another great game. He has been on a roll hitting 3's lately. DJ and Bledsoe were kind of missing in action out there. Bledsoe especially- I'm not sure what was going on with him today- he was just going through the motions out there which was totally unlike him.

Either way good win for the team.. They are jelling and VDN has them playing lights out right now.... Lets get the Nuggets on Christmas Day....

Neither DJ or Bledsoe looked good at all today. Bledsoe wasn't able to get out on the break and excel like he usually does, and if he did get out on a break, the suns played him extremely well.

DJ was just terrible. His post moves were slow and stupid and he was get missing easy layups as well. He played poorly against the Kings as well the other night. It may sound weird, but I think DJ is getting crushed by the pressure of Blake's dominance. Blake has been absolutely dominant in the past couple of games, and he's been sure to assert his superiority early in games. Maybe DJ just isn't able to keep up right now for whatever reason. Whatever the reason, I'm sure he'll get out of his slump soon. We don't actually need him to be a scoring threat, but it's good to have that threat there.

Also it's good to get a view of how dominant we can be when JC is hitting his shots. We've done this streak with Jamal shooting under 40% for the majority of the streak. Seeing him shoot the way we all know he can really shows that there's a whole extra gear that this team can shift into. And this is all still without Billups and Hill.

Glad CP3 was stepping up defensively as of late. He was a bit sloppy early this season.
