We've beaten the Wizards this year as well.

Laker fan smack talk is literally the easiest thing in the world to respond to this year. Their team is still a sub-.500 joke.

Without our 3 starters, in which 2 is our best players. If they weren't playing with Kobe and Dwight they would get crushed.

hell they get crushed by good teams even with kobe and dwight. just imagine them without gasol, kobe and howard? any team in this league, even elite ones would get killed if their 2 best players and a very good 3rd starting player were to be out.

Lakers fans would be stupid to taunt us. We still have better record and we weren't playing with our 2 superstars and 1 starter on b2b on the road! They can't talk crap. They aren't even in the playoffs. Without Kobe and Dwight they would get smashed to the wizards!

Crushing. All we can hope for is a quick recovery on all fronts

Please and thank you

Also I'm going to say I think that at this point that KG trade is welcomed.

Agree. We need to get healthy ASAP!

i hate how ralph and mike always love making excuses at the end of the games. NO ralph and mike, griffin would have not made a difference in this game. they talk about how clippers needed a bucket in the 4th quarter and griffin would be that guy who would get them the bucket haha thats so funny they're talking about the same griffin who like averages 1 or 2 shots in the 4th quarter. face it griffin is not a closer the only person who can save this team is chris paul and chris paul only.

yea bg does do some impact but only in the 1st half. its almost as if he does not exist in the 4th quarter. like i stated before, clippers will not close any games out on this road trip without chris paul.

^bg impacts the entire game, because he wears down the opposing bigs with his constant energy, his skill set and the fact that he draws fouls on the defenders, which impact the way defenses play our perimeter players.

my point is that if he's our number 1 option when chris paul is out then why isn't he more dominant when the game goes down the wire? he's supposed to be our closer when chris paul is out and he's yet shown the ability to close out games for us. i think the biggest problem right now is eric bledsoe running the show. yea if you look at the boxscore of the last 2 games you'd think he's playing amazing but the way he runs the offense is disgusting. he's turnover prone and his IQ is horrendous. he's a great backup point guard but for now i can't see bledsoe being a starting pg on a team.

We are cursed, even when it seems we have moved beyond it. I'm like devasted which i know is irrational. I've had a hard past few days and my team just rings me lower. They are inept. I feel like grant hill screwed up our chemistry in a weird way. I like him, but he hasn't really helped yet.

I like our team, and i can stomach VDN. but we atleast need to fire the Assistant coaches and bring some more in some that has some balls and a system to run.

ever think that teams pay extra attention to bg in the 4th quarter. people often dont appreciate griffin becomes a play maker most of the time during the 4th due to teams double and even triple teaming him. bledsoe still has room to grow, but he is showing flashes of brilliance. yeah he had 4 to's but 9 assist. better than 2 to 1. not bad, but still shows he needs more time backing up a cp3. bledsoe thrives in a fast paced, chaotic offense. once he learns to slow the game down a bit he will become a starting pg in this league for sure. hell, ill go out on a limb and say he can be a top 10 pg withing the next 3 years.

Golden state still won without curry and bogut, not at the same rate but they had a shot. We don't even have that

Not only is Golden State's head coach better than Vinny, their lead assistant is better than Vinny too.

For those of us who remember the Piatkowski days, we never said that the Clipper suck. LAL fans boo their team. We never do. VDN had no time to prepare for a Griffinless team. Even if he screwed up we don't suck

Ok, CP3. Rest time is over. We all know this team can't function without you. Put on a jersey and play some ball!!! I don't want this Clippers team to get swept by the lottery bound Orlando Magic. If you don't play in that game, I'll have to question your toughness, heart, and character. I will put you on the same boat as Baron Davis.

I can't believe we are halfway done with this road streak. And we've played against the softer side of that schedule. All we have to show for it is one f&@$ing win??!? If we do not get at least 2 more wins the rest of this road trip, I would not be surprised if we open on the road in the first round. Fire Jason Powell already. He's been a cancer to this team for a decade!!!!

I think this year can be very difficult. We have the best collection of players, and we have seen that at its best this team can be the #1 team in the west, so when we go on these losing streaks (or when we lose players to injury) it causes us to doubt and wonder whether the curse does exist.

We don't have CP3 or Billups in the line up and we just lost Griffin. It's tough to get wins that way. It's not time to push the panic button yet. These things happen, let's just wait till our guys get healthy and we'll start winning again.

unfortunately there are some on this board who think otherwise, which is sad considering they dont know the years of futility we have had. they talk out of their asses. yes vdn is an average coach at best, but this team is still in 3rd place in the west. its not like we are out of the playoff picture. once this team is healthy, things will improve dramatically

I can't believe some people are slamming BG...and he didn't even play in this game. If he makes very little impact in the 4th quarter, it's only because he doesn't get the ball in the 4th...it's been that way ever since we got CP3.

Speaking of which...any word on how long BG will be out?

And WHEN will that be? We've had someone out every game this season. Injuries aren't an excuse.

I look at the Chicago Bulls, who have not had Derick Rose all year yet they have managed to log a 29-19 record and stay 4th in the east. We have much more depth than the Bulls yet in Chris Pauls absence we have been horrible. Something doesnt add up here, and I have to agree with you that we cant just dismiss this as injuries.

Well when you don't have CP3, then you miss all the great things that Blake Griffin can give you- it was just too much to overcome. Unfortunately Lamar Odom couldn't step up- 3 points and 5 turnovers in 31 minutes- just not good enough by Lamar if this team was going to win. 20 turnovers didn't help either- Butler and Bledsoe with a boatload themselves. And of course, the terrible 3 point defense once gain- I mean how can you leave Webster so open so often like that? Even without Blake, especially without him, you have to do better on defense, and again the 3 point D just sucked ass. The offensive rebounds given up really hurt as well.

Hopefully Blake won't be out for long- but hamstring injuries are quite troublesome and I'd be surprised if he's back within a week.

Er- he's being asked to carry the offense. Without CP3 and Blake teams are going to focus big time on him. And he still scored 28. It's just tough when there's no post presence to help with the spacing, or else he might have had 40. DJ never even got the ball in the post one single time if I remember correctly, which is mind boggling.

David I was mad because he was struggling early... but by the end of the game Crawford played very well. I also agree it's weird as hell DJ got pretty much zero touches down low.

If injuries aren't an excuse, then Thibodeau should get canned. Best record in the league, then a first round exit due to one little injury.

Of course injuries are an excuse... no team in the league is going to win consistently with their best 2 (and arguably their best 3) players sitting out.

Like every other team, we need our horses.

To teams not in the playoff picture, overall 1-3 on this road trip, can add another 2 in the lose column vs ny and miami

Is it just me or this team just looks plain rusty, chemistry looks bad, turnovers, ill advised shots, forcing tough shots, missing point blank layups, missing open shots - do these guys practice, how can a supposedly 'elite' team be performing this bad at this time of the season, what is our record in 2013? Gota be worst than .500

Turnovers have been a huge part of our collapse. Bledsoe is running the point, and even before he was given the starters spot due to injury to CP3 he was always making ill advised passes due to trying to penetrate into the paint quicker than he should have.

Bledsoe is a talent, but i see alot of reckless play from him. Sometimes he tries to play ISO ball and uses his flashy speed to try and score points even though a man may be open. Add to that the fact that wehave Willie Green as our starting SG. Caron's inconsistent play is also a detriment, and now teams can simply double some of the guys that were hot on our bench, like Crawford.

try explaining this to some of the people on here who are panicking. lol. and i agree, no team can be a contender with 3 of their best players out.

Also a top-3 team in their conference this year without their best player, 6-4 in their last 10, 29-19 record overall. Keep in mind they haven't had Rose all year.

Replace Thibs with Vinny and is there really any doubt that the Bulls would be a Bobcats-esque lottery team right now?

Except Thibs is an elite coach. The only coach that is clearly better is Popovich. Thibs led the Bulls to 1st seed last season with Rose out for a lot of the season. The Bulls didn't only lose Rose but they also loss Joakim Noah in the playoffs. Thats like us losing CP3 and BG.

Also when the Bulls upgraded from VDN to Thibs they went from barely a playoff team to a contender. They are hanging tough this season despite no Rose all season and a weaker bench.

Overall, Thibs is a top 3 coach in this league while its debatable if VDN is even a top 20 coach.... This has only been the first time we did not have CP3 and BG in. We loss so many games we should have won due to incompetent coaching. We would be first seed even with Paul out if we had Popovich or Thibs. Of course I don't expect us to ever get a coach of that caliber but a pretty good coach would do wonders like a SVG for instance.
