I think you guys are living way too much in the moment is the thing. All I'm doing is looking ahead to OKC or SA in the playoffs. Everything from here until that point is pretty trivial. I'm analyzing what's going to happen vs Popovich again when he sees these flaws and exposes them badly. Of course those of us criticizing Vinny know he won't be fired right now.. doesn't mean we won't get upset and talk about the obvious downfalls.

Hill has to step in and play more with Barnes being hurt it looks like it limits him more each game

Another thing I don't get. Barnes was clearly hurting and yes he played great with 3 or 4 late 3's but why not give Hill a little burn to let Barnes heal more?

If we had sharper substitutions today I have zero doubt we win by 25. No reason for starters to rest that long. No reason for Odom to play that long when he singlehandedly hurt us a ton today. No reason for DJ to be on the bench most of the second half despite playing real well in the first half. No reason for Billups and Caron to play so little when both were ON FIRE. It's just stupidity all across the board.

Call it what you want, but I'm sick of seeing it. I'm pretty much done with this board, which is a shame because I used to really enjoy it. But having to read diatribes against the coach during a game we won easily doesn't sit well with me.

And, news flash, VDN isn't going anywhere this season, so all the ranting and raving that goes on is completely pointless.

I completely agree with you hoopfanjd. There's way too much complaining and ranting on this board in my opinion. The closest that the Rockets got to coming back was a 10 point deficit. I think VDN did a pretty good job tonight.

Did the Clippers play a little sloppy in the second half? Yes, but it was still an easy win for the them. Can't we just enjoy the win?

People apparently became spoiled with low expectations. Of course there is way more complaining on this board now.. because the pressure and expectations are EXTREMELY high.. as in championship high. Go on any fan board of contending teams and you'll see the same crap. Go on a forum of a crap team and you'll find what you seek and what this forum used to be. Which is low expectations, nothing to complain about because they settle for the worst.

The All-Star break will help to heal up some guys...much needed.

I'll list some personal positives from this game just so that people know I DO see the good as well.

  1. Billups and Butler were awesome. Both guys were on fire the first half and carried us quite a bit.

  2. Blake had a very nice run in the 4th quarter to stop the Rockets run for the most part.

  3. Loved DJ's defense and activity this game. He actually played very fundamentally sound defense which is why I'm surprised that yet again when he plays great he still gets no burn.

  4. First half was the most exciting half of Clippers ball in a long time! I was pumped and happy as hell.

I just see that gold trophy man... Embarassed . I know with all my heart that with good coaching from either Vinny or somebody else we WILL win a championship in the next 3 years. I would be so sad if we blow the opportunity.

but even then u are looking ahead. first things first, we have to keep winning in any way we can to try to catch okc and san antonio. i know it will be very difficult, but if we do, we have home advantage throughout the western conference playoff run. you can criticize all you want, its your right, but you also should be able to give credit where credit is due. your rant earlier about paying someone 500 bucks to punch vdn in the throat is pure bs. is that how much you hate the guy? come on man, you are better than that.

I believe we will be contending for the title in the next 3 years also. This year my expectations are winning the division and getting beyond the 2nd round, all historical achievements for this franchise. Anything beyond that, is all icing on the cake for me. I try to keep my expectations with in reach.

It's scary how good this team can be when they're healthy and clicking.

Got home late and just finished watching the 4th qtr but will watch the replay to catch the "history in the making" 1st. Got scared there for a minute when the Rockets cut it to 10. lol

Good to see Billups have such a huge game been awhile since that happened. We need to take this w streak into the allstar break.

Nice to see Blake be the one to restore order in the fourth tonight...

...and DAMN his stats are ridiculous tonight:

20 points (8-11 FT's), 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, 1 block, +26

Oh, and I love seeing Billups playing great basketball.

My only complaint last night was I thought the bench was awful. What on earth were they doing? The ball was like a hot potato out there to everyone but Crawford. I mean nobody wanted to take a shot, passing it around until it was safely in Jamal's hands. Bledsoe and Odom were unselfish to a fault. Barnes finally hit some shots though and I did like Hollins' activity once again.

Exactly. They were able to beat the Heat and Knicks & both the Grizzlies & Spurs twice already this season. And most of that happened before Chauncey & Grant Hill even played. Not mention they won 3 out of 4 last season. As long they're able to have everyone healthy for about two months before the playoffs start, then this team can beat anyone.
