Another impressive road win vs a tough team. The guys did a good job offensively in the first half, but were giving up way too many open looks to Houston from deep. But the starters did a great job in the 3rd getting stops, which fueled that big run to opening up the lead. Then Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes erased any hopes of the Rockets coming back in the 4th. Great performances by Jamal, Matt, Willie, E-Bled, and Blake. Interesting there though how Blake was getting upset at VDN there after VDN admonished Blake about the tech. Blake certainly can do better in getting his negative emotions in check, but otherwise had a very nice game.

More like Bledsoe is boosting his trade value sky high for us lol . Once CP3 signs a 5 year deal it makes no sense to keep a backup that good on the bench with our current depth. We badly need a starting SG and SF for the future.

RESPECT man, I know Bledsoe is your boy. It just makes me happy knowing that we can actually demand and get someone good because of EBled.

great win Vinny stubborn ass almost strikes again if it was closer going into the 3rd like Orlando not going back to the starters could have bit him

That is not true at all. I already said that I'd trade stats for wins. If only Odom and Turiaf were playing better than DJ was tonight, then I wouldn't complain about DJ getting benched in the entire 4th. Those 2 were non-factors tonight, yet DJ played only 2 more minutes than Odom?

"This isn't a team where we develop players on the fly" - WHAT? You do realize that Griffin and Bledsoe are still developing, right? I ain't asking for DJ to play Dwight Howard-type minutes or any elite center in this league. All I ask is a little more trust in DJ in the 4th. Oh yeah, this is a team that can develop young players AND win at the same time. And yes, I should also be worried about DJ's development since we are paying him big money. You know, rooting for him so he lives up to his contract? I worry about wins, thank you very much, but why in the world should ignore a player's development, especially if this guy is young and part of our future? Some teams are in win-now mode like we are, but we also have a future. Not many can teams can say that so I have every right to worry about someone's development. BTW, the game was far from over when we were asking Vinny to put DJ back in. It was about a 12-point game with 5 minutes left. PLENTY of time for an offensive team like the Rockets to come back from that. When you made the post about the game being over, I'd say that you probably took advantage of the timing to make a strong argument.

Yea you guys know I love E Bled. My favorite player but my loyalty is to the team, not individuals. I like him enough to follow his entire career after he leaves for sure.

yeah. he gets crucified on here. so does butler, but i dont see people giving them their due for what they contribute to this team. smh. going back to the game, impressive win. i wish we would have won by 20. it kind of affects our defensive rating when we give up 109 points lol. but ebled is showing why he would start for at least half of the teams in the league. our depth is ridiculous. for a moment there, i thought crawford was going to go for 50. wow that was a sick display in the 4th quarter. great win. id rest cp3 again for thursday's game, until he is 100 percent.

So...I guess winning at Memphis and Houston kinda makes up for that ridiculous loss against Orlando? (Still doesn't make up for Vinny's horrifying decision to deny BG the ball down low the last 4 minutes of that game...smh).

Not ecstatic about BG's 6 turnovers...but then again 8 assists!!! Second game in a row he's led the team in assists while CP3 is out. I get why we want BG to get more rebounds, but he really has been doing other things that have contributed to all these wins, primarily on the defensive end, but also dishing assists and sacrificing his own numbers for the sake of the team. Fact is we're rebounding well and it's because we got rebounders in just about every position now, instead of just two. I don't mind VDN lashing out a little at Blake. Every young star needs a little of that to stay grounded. Hopefully, it'll motivate BG to play extra hard the next game.

How about Jamal! Nice to see him pick it up in big games. And I like what I've seen from Willie for the last 3 games, really. And while I think Bledsoe lacks the floor leadership of CP3, he really has done the job so far.

This is a great win tonight...no doubt!

lol. allright cool. half of the 6 to's he had were cuz he got hammered and s*** wasnt call. i am not too happy with vdn arguing with bg about getting a tech. if hes going to do that, he should talk to bg after the game in private and not in public. plus, just cuz u got one tech earlier in the game ( like vdn did), doesnt mean u need to lay off the refs if they are f*****g up.

Possible dynasty if they did that as then Clips could keep more of their depth. CP3 not quite as quick and fast as he used to be. Of course some guys would go with CP3 so maybe it would be a wash.

Definitely- it showed that Caron was helping stretch the floor and was playing solid D.

You guys really need another thread for this Lin-quisition.

Good win vs the Rockets, those guys have consistency issues and we managed to jump out and expose them in the 3rd quarter big-time. Bledsoe showing he deserves every minute he's not getting under CP3, unfortunately also boosting his trade value but hopefully he'll help us win a ring before he leaves. Jamal in beast mode, great to see him step up the last couple games with CP3 out. And Green stepped up on the scoring for a nice change. Great balanced contribution all-around, and yet another ding on CP3's MVP campaign lol
