Ralph trying to make sure you don't change the channel (for the sponsors hate that) by making it sound like cutting a lead to a mere 16 is great,,,,

Both the teams we've faced these last two nights have systems where it's not just guards who move around without the ball, so do their big men. They move around until they cut back into the paint for a layup or a pass to another person cutting to the basket. This also appears to be how they get offensive rebounds too.

Everything we try right now looks much harder.

I would go with the old 3 guard offense and see if we can run around these guys,,,,for the most part they are really slow and lumbering but they out lumber us

Bledsoe immediately makes an impact.

It's true. We ARE out in the first round for sure and I don't care how negative it is.. it's what will happen.

Man guaranteeing is the wrong statement to make. None of us can predict the future. If we do have homecourt first round we could win. I'm not guaranteeing we are going to win but we definitely can. If there's no hope then call it a season already. And if anything good happens from now till the end of the season it's useless and doesn't matter. We already lose in the first round regardless of what happens from now till the end of the season.

Based on us being a .500 team the last two or three months that can no longer beat playoff teams.. it's a pretty safe statement to make. Especially because we can't stay healthy one bit.

Okay well hope you are wrong and we win a first round matchup. But I guess if we do somehow improve in the next few games it means nothing. We already guarantee lose first round.

VDN s a snake oil sells man, he just talks fast and says a alot **** that sounds good. run fast, hustle, rebound, hit shots, rotate, healthy, it's a process, long season. but he never says how to do any of it.

Bledsoe makes terrible palys sometimes. Terrible passes, turnovers and misses layups. If we really could have done Bledsoe for Millsap we shoulda done it an instant

I'm just mad that he used to be our main guy giving hard fouls on crap like that and now he has become one of our biggest soft foul culprits. Either give a hard foul or don't give one at all. Really simple **** and basic basketball fundamentals.

we really need to stop this gimmick defense that VDN wants to run, we are not Miami and it doesn't fit our team. All this switching is hurting us we don't have the personal for it

Season is honestly a waste at this point. Go to the playoffs only to get crushed again. We took a tiny step forward as a team but our future is in question, even next year.

Not really an option. If he doesn't give one at all, he'll get called for one anyway. I say start thugging.

Repped High Quality Post

So the best team in Clippers history is just "a waste"? Why don't you wait until the playoffs until we make predictions.

It would help if we can get the rockets into the penalty ASAP.

Also...DJ should be one of the best shot blockers in the league. But I think our defensive style is not allowing him to be the shot blocking presence we need him to be. Nobody is afraid to go to the basket against us.

Do you know what every "contender's" goal is every year? It's championship or bust unless you at least make noticeable improvement. We have slightly improved over last year and the fact that we look even worse going into the playoffs this year, yes it looks like a waste.

Last year we went 13-2 leading up to the playoffs. This team on the other hand is melting down right at the end of the season.

The only thing that will make me feel remotely better is a few flagrant fouls to send a message to the refs and other team.

Maybe we NEEDED a guy like Kmart in the locker room who had zero issue calling out teammates. All the buddy buddy **** on our team used to be a strength but now it's becoming a detriment. Guys are so close they refuse to call each other out.

When we were enduring lottery seasons, it was like "it's gonna be a lonnnng year" for us. But it actually feels a lot longer when you're a playoff contender. Wins are more expected and losses are less tolerable.

I could handle losses if we competed and executed. These atrocities though aren't losses they are make you embarrassed to be a Clippers fan sometimes type deal.

No excuse for this debacle- the effort just laid down and died. Houston on a back-to-back as well. Terrible defense the first 3 quarters, and then once we started doing better on D, couldn't make enough baskets to resemble any sort of a run. Offense was all from the outside- no cutting, rarely any post-ups. Opponents are now just packing the paint, and if the Clippers can't make enough outside shots, they've got a good chance at winning. Something has to be done to make things easier so we don't live and die by the jumpers.

I agree. DJ will never be used right in this defensive system or whatthever the hell it is. Our bigs always get forced to guard perimeter players. But when we have he possession, we rarely see the opponets getting mismatches. Well, at least the contending teams.

As shitty as we played (and boy, did we play shitty), this last week has convinced me that the NBA has decreed that we will have a rematch with Memphis, run-and gun Denver and Golden State will meet, Harden will face his former team and the Spurs/lakers rivalry will be rekindled.

What other matchups would get better viewing figures? Expect to see Houston and Utah shafted and the Nuggets and Warriors protected for the rest of the season.

We shot way too many jumpers tonight and we played lazy/tired, we deserve this loss. Only 8 more games left this season before the Playoffs, we got to make the best of it.

There is an interesting study on Bleacher Report. (I know its BR) It talked about how there is actually a correlation between teams going cold into the playoffs and their playoff success.

I'll see if I can find it.

Clippers last year finish the year 13-4 (lost last two because CP3 rested his groin, had a chance to win them anyways)... we on the other hand are spiraling out of control at literally the worst time imaginable.

@Clipper321

Please do! I want to read it. It will suck to read but still. I just don't understand how we can be optimistic at this point. Our team has never been able to just flip a switch so why do people act like we have time to turn this around? We have 8 games left. The only way we can go into the playoffs with enough momentum is if we win at least 7 of those. Considering we have only won 3 straight once since early January... it's extremely unlikely.

I believe they can on talent and execution... just not on box-office wink
