All I have to say is that I hope CP3 sits out the All star game and Billips comes back soon (hear his workload has increased and is now taking contact). Someone on here mentioned a while back about the schedule.

Certainly the league did the Clips no favors, look at all the key back to backs and how many there are. I am not certain but I think the Clippers also play 2 to 3 more back to backs than the average. In the end if they get through it all, they certainly will be battle tested. I expect them to finish 2nd or 3rd in the West. The Griz will slide to #6, so that means Clips get Jazz or Griz and Denver and GSW brawl in the 4-5 match up. If it all works out its Clips v Spurs in second round. Could be very interesting.

Am I missing something? Why have you posted a link to the OKC-LAC post game? I expected a link to our upcoming schedule considering the subject matter of your thread.

The schedule is pretty rough. 8 game road trip that includes MIA, NYK, BOS and PHI. WAS and PHI on second night of back-to-backs.

Obviously I would love to say "we should go 7-1," but in reality 5-3 on that trip would be OK.

NYK will probably be the hardest game. They live and die by the three so its basically playing against a different form of the Warriors. Vinny has to get the staff down and get some ideas flowing at the all star break on how we can get better when we know we are playing a shooting team. It's the only true losses we have had this season other than bad effort ones but even those were on the perimeter in.

The perimeter shooting was atrocious last big and has been consistently. How would everyone here fix it? What are we doing wrong?

more defensive schemes is the only answer we can't do the same things we usually do against really good shooting teams and aggressive PG's the 3pt line is a shot we have been giving up for years now and with our improved players and development we protect inside. We need a fall back plan because the the Spurs could get us again or GSW if we don't find a consistent way to stop shooters.

Here's the schedule before the all star break:

@ suns W

@ blazers W

Vs blazers W

@ twolves W

@ raptors W

@ celtics W

@ wizards (b2b) L (playing very well recently)

@ magic W

@ heat L

@ Knicks L

@ 76ers (b2b) W

Vs rockets W

@ Lakers W (b2b for us but not for the lakers...wtf)

All star break

I have the clippers going 10-3. Maybe 9-4 at worst if they lose either @ celtics OR @ 76ers (b2b).

So we'll either be 42-14 or 41-15 at the break.

What do you guys think?

Sorry about that, didn't check what got pasted, at least you get to see Ms. Burke.

looking at it I'd also be happy with 9 and 4, and overall I still see finishing 2nd or 3rd in west and facing Jazz or Memphis. It would be nice to win the West but the second round of PO's seems to favor the 2 and 3 seeds. I personally would rather play the Spurs in round 2 than Denver or Warriors. I am not knocking the Spurs and not saying the Clips couldn't beat the Denver/GSW, I just think match up wise I'd prefer the Spurs, maybe I am one of those idiots that picks against the Spurs and am always proven wrong.
