This team is weak, we're not going nowhere unless Blake starts playing like a superstar that he is supposed to be. Very disappointed in Blake, he really needs to step up his game

Here's the mistake on the last defensive play in regulation, IMO:

Look at Chris. He gave Mayo enough space to attack the basket. Shouldn't he have moved a little bit to his left to trap Mayo? Barnes was already there to cover the other side.

@capsNClips, good response to the whole "whining about refs" bs.

Definitely giving a Mayo layup with .6 was a backbreaker, even more so than the Griffin BS call.

He wasn't the same after getting swatted by Brand. But also, CP3 could have sealed the game early in the 4th if he hadn't been so intent on sharing the ball when our shooters were cold.

We were in the penalty very early and he was beasting in the post. Push that 9-point lead to 15 and it's game over.

You think I didn't see bad officiating? I talk about it all the time but this game was easily in our grasp bad officiating or not. This was a very winnable game. You can't do anything about bad officiating but our players could have stepped it up instead of disappearing like Lebron in the 2011 NBA Finals. You can win 8v5. You can't win 8v1. The officiating did cost us the game but we should have been able to win regardless.

Anyway there is no point arguing anymore. Just hope we win the next game and players actually show up.

Worst part of this loss is we've been exposed again! Teams are watching this game and already has a game plan to beat us. Take the ball out of CP's hands and let other players beat them. Tonight, Blake/Butler/Crawford/Barnes played like crap. They combined to shoot 17/51 or a woeful 33%!

DJ and Odom played well but dumbass VDN didn't play them down the stretch and OT.

Even the last play of regulation, why wasn't DJ in to guard the paint. Butler just stood there and watched Mayo lay the ball in.

I agree though Griffin was a no show and got soft after the flagrant and two blocked shots by Brand. The fire we saw from him as a rookie is now mostly gone and he's more subdued. The NBA mentally broke him.

Still furious at the team for yet again allowing teams to be the ones drawing blood and dishing out flagrants and hard fouls.. while we swipe at them and give up And 1's. Seriously how long will it take this team to figure out that you can't let all other teams be the aggressor? When teams start dishing out flagrants you do the same ****. You don't let them do it without any repercussions so that they get comfortable. You want them also thinking in the back of their mind if they are going to get hit.

On the + side. The Mavericks can knock the Lakers out of the playoffs.

Man you guys are obsessed with the Lakers! Let's worry about our own damn team that has a ton of problems. Besides I'd rather face the Lakers than the Mavs.

You're contradicting yourself... nothing was "exposed".

Sure they successfully shut down CP3 in the last few minutes, but only with double-teams and at the expense of leaving wide-open shooters. If just one of the other 4 guys you mentioned even hits their average FG%, we win... simple as that.

I'll take those odds every time.

Chauncey would have been nice at the end tonight. He ain't afraid of no shot, I still think he shouldn't start over Willie though.

We aren't facing either so it doesn't matter. Just trying to take something possibly positive out of this pitiful loss. Confused

We won't face either since we won't play an 8th seed. But we would beat either in a 7 game series. Just would be nice if lakers not make the playoffs

One thing to be happy about: We only gave up 6 3s! Then again, we still gave up 23 attempts. So either we got lucky they missed a bunch or we contested most of the shots. But I think we also did a good job forcing them to settle for long 2s.

How are we supposed to guard dirk without fouling? Every time he flops and any contact is a foul. What are we supposed to do?

I'm just saying that's a big reason why we lost

That's the sad thing. We finally play great perimeter defense and knock down a ton of 3's.. but then we slip bad in multiple other areas. Vs a great or good team can we every just play good in almost every way?

Exactly, if you watch Blake on Dirk you can see that Blake got the best of him but the refs got the best of Blake.

Yeah just because Blake is muscular and stronger then dirk, they call fouls. Blake is just standing still and straight. Any dirk contact they called fouls.

Yeah by rules Blake slowed down dirk. The refs aren't following the rules

Very disappointing loss...literally we cannot seem to get over the hump whenever that 3rd seed is ripe for the taking. Two bad games in a row from Blake. i HATE that we gave barkley yet more fodder. TNT is not our friend, which bodes ill for the playoffs...

Yea... Despite a game winner that would have put laettner's shot to shame got robbed. Blake did all he could but the Mavs did a great job denying the ball com Paul in the closing seconds of OT. Maybe the Clipps should do something about that.

The NBA refs are right up there with MLB umpires as the worst officials in major North American sports.

Yeah Blake did deserve that game winner. What a frickin flop by dirk. I can't believe the refs called it. Usually at the end of the game they allow more physical plays and aren't suckered into calling flops. Cheaters...

Yeah they are better then their record says. I hope cp3's knees didn't get worse after playing so much tonight. This is a devastating loss. I'm frickin furious. I don't know why it's so hard to call a game close to fair. This was way too one sided. They should be fired.

Seems to me like the NBA thinks the money's in a rematch between us and the Grizz, and a fast-paced shootout between Denver and GSW... as opposed to vice versa.

I'm so mad over that Blake griffin offensive foul. I still can't believe the refs got fooled by a flop. I thought they don't like to make calls to influence games? Makes me think whoever made that call was betting on this game or something.

Man I can't get over it. I'm just devastated and furious. We better win tomorrow! Justice needs to be served!

I agree, it's a business and I can't blame em but man, tough loss tonight especially when so many crucial calls went against us, Blake should of had that game winner!

I wouldn't mind playing the Grizzlies again, we match up well against them and even a 27 point deficit won't hold us back wink

jsut saw the highlights.... They shouldnt have called that foul against blake on that game winner. Refs rarely call fouls on jump balls like that when there is less than a second left. They were both pushing off, its just that blake is way stronger so nowitzki got pushed back adn then flopped. that was bs.
