You're kidding, right? Barea is getting all his flop calls and I won't even get into the BS with Stiemsma earlier in the game. STFU.

And Crawford has been traveling like crazy. Calls have clearly been favoring the Clippers.

Where did this Wolves fan come from? Did you randomly google a clipper message board so you can read our game thread? Are you that nosy?

Kevin Love... A PF who shoots well below 50% in his career. Not an elite player.

It did show last year. After all, Blake led us to a playoff series win, while Love was sitting at home watching on TV like every other year in his career.

Nope. Barea is the bigger flopper and he was he one defending, so you fail.

Off-topic? We're comparingt he two, aren't we? I just stated a fact. Love's career FG% is well below 50%. That's not what you want from a big man who can score.

Lol you are correct. How could I forget that Griffin was the reason for the Clippers success and Love was the reason for the failures.

Also, Chalmers and Nelson> Irving.

We got the win (against a lottery team) but I have absolutely run out of patience with Chauncey and Chris on the sideline. At least get one of those two back. We need a natural PG in the lineup BADLY.

Blake is the better scorer and passer. Not to mention his defense has improved this year while Love's "defense" has always been sub-par. Get a grip. Love ain't an elite player yet. He freaking shoots below 50%. Do you understand?

Also, answer my question. Why did you sign up here again? Are you that nosy?

Nice job to Bledsoe for getting 10 assists.

The game was closer than it should have been but it was expected since The Wolves never go away easily against us. And they left Ridnour out when he shoots like 100% against us? Shocked

Anyway... one thing that keeps glaring at me game after game. Have you guys noticed how Eric Bledsoe when he takes the ball up the court or in general (unless he is speeding down it on a fastbreak) he is very lazy and it has to do with his "swagger" his chill attitude out there.. well today towards the last couple minutes when we got a Wolves miss and Eric somehow ended up with it Barrea almost stole it from behind for the same reason. Eric was with like a "i got this" type attitude and was dribbling very slowly unattentive and the ball almost got stolen. I have seen this happen waaay to many times. I also noticed his effort when we turn the ball over. If you guys notice it is almost like he tries to look too cool out there or something and what I am saying is sometimes this affects him out there. Eric Bledsoe sometimes takes it easy when he has the ball and this needs to stop because sometimes (rarely but it happens) it translates to the defensive end.

I hope you guys understand what I am talking about but cause I cant really figure out any other way to explain it and it is coming out more these last couple weeks cause Eric Bledsoe has been starting.

wow that wolves troll is back again. lmao. hey troll, dont get mad that klove got hurt due to doing knuckle pushups. shows how weak he is. when healthy, all he can do better than blake is shoot jumpshots, shoot better from the line (the discrepancy is decreasing though) and get slightly more rebounds than griffin. he is behind in passing, defense,making his team better (which is very important). so stop crying. going back to the game, great game from griffin, DJ ( if only he could be consistent), butler, and ebled ( he needs to cut down the turnovers though). anyone feel like punching barea in the face? i certainly do. annoying motherf****r. eventhough the refs were biased against us, we pulled it off. i dont agree with barnes getting ejected. stiemsma had hit barnes in the face earlier in the sequence before barnes shoved him. bs ejection. im glad butler went after that punk when he cheapshotted hill in the back. not a great looking win, but a win nonetheless. lets keep it rolling

Ugly game with so many turnovers, but the guys had enough to get the job done. The second unit did a poor job in the second quarter again like during the losing streak- the offense was just plain terrible. Guys standing around, no dribble penetration, no post-ups- just tough one on one stuff outside resulting in contested long jumpers. That definitely needs to change while Bledsoe is not playing w/ the second unit.

Good performances though by Blake and Caron as they helped carried the offense. Blake was a beast on the boards as well. Bledsoe was good overall despite his usual # of mistakes. DJ did a very good job tonight- one of his best games recently. Nice to see VDN have some trust in him, and DJ delivered down the stretch with some huge offensive rebounds to help seal the game. When you resort to perimeter shooting like what the Clippers did in the 4th, it's a good idea to have DJ in there as he is one of the better offensive rebounders in the league. I'm not sure about the offense though just pretty much relying on Jamal. He did a solid job though hitting shots in the 4th.

I, of course, could not watch any of this game because I was at work...but...I'm so happy we won. From what I can tell, Blake is continuing to step up with Paul out? Looks like with rebounds this time instead of assists...AND THREE STEALS!!! He's been quite the thief of late. Speaking of which, the 6 steals by Bledsoe and 10 assists are fantastic, although it sounds like from some of your commentary that he still showed some playmaking flaws.

I love that it looks like DJ and Caron stepped up. About time those two did. Caron, especially, should take a leadership role as the veteran he is. It also kinda looks from the box score that we really need those guys to have big games because the bench put up some really modest numbers. Hopefully they step up in future games. We'll need everyone on board on this road trip.

"He hit me with a couple of dirty picks early on and I told him to watch it, then he laughed and he hit me with another one," Barnes said. "I kind of lost my control, which I apologized to the team for. There's no excuse for that, but luckily it sparked the team."

Officials reviewed the play and gave Barnes a flagrant foul-2, which brings an automatic ejection.

"He kind of ran through me on the first one, so I figured he'd do the same on the second one," Stiemsma said. "I didn't know he was going to take it that far. That's what I'm out there to do, set screens and be physical and some guys just take it over the top."

Moments later, Stiemsma flattened Hill when he went up for a rebound under the basket. Butler and Ronny Turiaf forcefully confronted Stiemsma, drawing technical fouls of their own. J.J. Barea hit both free throws for a 37-28 lead.

Stiemsma said he was hit in the face on the play and didn't know Hill was there when he pushed back.

"I wasn't retaliating," Stiemsma said. "I just felt a hit to the face and he just went to the floor."

The outburst did seem to ignite the Clippers, who went on a 37-15 surge over the next 11 minutes to take control. Griffin flexed his muscle down low, getting Derrick Williams to pick up five fouls in 13 minutes while he attacked the offensive glass.

"We've got a bunch of nice guys, but I think we have to be a little tougher," Barea said. "We have to stop being too nice. They turned it up. I think it helped them. That was the game right there."

DJ played 31 minutes. Yes, he reached the 30-minute mark!

no doubt, but to flat out say hes above griffin, is ludicrous. the only reason they are so close is that griffin is still improving his jumper. once he gets it down, not even a close comparison

we do need one of those guys in the lineup. however, the franchise needs to accept one thing: Chauncey Billups days of playing a full NBA season are over. since he has been with the clippers he has been on the bench loger than he has on the court. at billups age thats not surprising. with that in mind when we deal Bledsoe we should look for a young shooter to fill that position. we just cant afford to continue to wait for him to come back because even if he does theres no guarantee that he wont get injured again.

also, blake hasnt had to unleash everything hes capable of because of the great bench we have. it wasnt until paul sat out with injury that blake had to carry the load, and since blake has to be the primary option he has released his lebron james like play

It's not a bad thing that CP3 is out currently. Blake has to learn to take a bit more control in the 4th. So the circus shot was important for him, more confidence in the 4th! same for Butler and Jordan.

much better than the Portland loss.
