Well, it should never have gotten to that final shot, but just an amazing play by Chris obviously. Down the stretch, I was very disappointed in substitution pattern. Lamar had been great, but he was tired. And Chauncey- we know that he's not exactly fleet of foot any more. We just had to play solid DEFENSE, but we had guys in there that were obviously not the best defenders nor the freshest guys. And it almost cost us the game. Hopefully we learn our lesson because there will be games when CP can't deliver like he did tonight down the stretch, or he is forced to give up the ball.

Terrific game by Blake. Way to be aggressive and attack the slower Randolph. Good game by CP offensively, though on defense he and the big man defending the Conley pick and roll has to be better. Great job by the bench too until some ill-advised shots taken by Bledsoe in the 4th. E-Bled overall had another good game, however. The winning formula of the starters battling the Grizz even or even ahead, and then the bench stretching the lead was great up until.... the bench was removed too early in the 4th. Definitely more patience was needed there.

Now comes an extremely difficult game in Memphis. The crowd is going to be crazy. We just need total effort and intensity from everyone, and we should be able to battle through.

Chuck has a point that game should not have been that close up ten in the fourth. They were going to make a run but our offense looked dead after a while.

Cp3 with all the big baskets at the end!!! MVP! MVP! MVP! Definitely celebrating tonight!!! I lost my voice yelling at these refs!

Disappointed we couldn't hold the grizzlies off with a double digit 4th quarter lead. But main thing is that we win!!! I'll take any win all the time! The only positive thing Charles said was Jamal deserved to make the all star game. And great shot by CP3. Otherwise lots of negative comments.

On prime ticket, fans were chanting Cp3! Cp3! Cp3! And lakers suck! Lakers suck! Lakers suck! Lol. Love it.

I like how they said "The Clippers won't be able to this against a better team." Even though Memphis is statistically the best defensive team.

They also said that if you double CP3 then the other players won't be able to step up. Apparently they haven't been watching Crawford play. Not to mention, Mr. Big Shot is back!

I would obviously love a sweep but would be satisfied with a split, and be up 3-1. It will be a tough environment to win in Memphis even though we won our last 3 games in that building.

I think Bledsoe should have played more instead of Chauncey. His defense on Conley was good. Plus he's did a good job getting loose balks and moving without the ball.

Paul was fouled before that small push up. Even the bias TNT guys said that. Refs should let players decide games.

And that's a point he could make about any team playing against Memphis.

I'd say our offense has actually looked pretty good these two playoff games. As well as this 9 game winning streak we've got going on so far.

We know Memphis is a very good team and that they would play with desperation in game 2 and that's exactly what happened. I'm surprised we still out rebounded them (slightly but still...). And our guys who shot the ball so well in game 1 (CP3, Chauncey, Butler) were not so effective this time around.

If anything, I think handing Memphis a loss like this could be very dispiriting to the Grizzlies. At least I hope so.

Have to say Chuck is spot on: the half-court offense has to improve, it just has to. Heck, even Jamal took his question and gave him an honest answer. They will not go anywhere if they keep playing like this. The game should not at any point have come down to the last shot. The Clippers deserved to lose this game and they be very thankful that they escaped. Our offense overall was just brutal tonight.

Right. Because great teams never have to make a final shot.

To say the Clippers "deserve" to lose this game is beyond comprehension. They played hard. They grabbed rebounds. We kept Z Bo in check. I'd love to blow out every team we play, but that's not going to happen to any team in these playoffs..for ANY team. And Memphis was not going to lose by 21 points in game 2.

Our 4th quarter offense was pretty bad. We had a double digit lead and should have closed the door on Memphis. But im still celebrating this win! Win is a win! Cp3 was clutch scoring all the points at then end. Charles has a point that they should have doubled him. Cp3 has scored on too many game winners and clutch shots in his career.

Bledsoe with only 13 minutes. He should have played more. About 20 minutes at least.

When you look at the numbers our offense has been playing great in the playoffs. Memphis only allowed 89.3 point per game in the regular season (best in the league). That hasn't stopped the Clippers from scoring 102.5 points per game in the playoffs and that's about a point more than their season average.

Disagree. I remember the second unit getting a bunch of layups and dunks. That's real brutal, huh? I must say, however, in close games, the offense is too stagnant and predictable down the stretch. It worked tonight, but I'm not sure how consistently it can work in the playoffs. And if somehow CP can't go (knock on wood), what will be the offense like down the stretch? Probably Jamal going 1 on 1?

But yes it should never have gotten to that point, but poor defense was the main culprit.

Exactly. So when Barkley says we're the worst half court offense he's ever seen (that alone questions his credibility), what on earth makes our team so good then? Why did we win the Pacific Division?

It can't be Chris Paul because, according to Barkley, Paul's not even the best point guard in the league.

It can't be our defense because TNT never talks about our defense.

I understand Barkley doesn't like the Clippers...I just wish he'd keep his bias a little under control.

To chucks point, arent good teams to great teams suppose to make runs at you??

Case and point last years game one comeback.

And honestly, cp has already said that HE is the one that decides to slow it down.

On the plus, we have arguably the best pointguard in the game (even thogh chuk has a mans crush on parker). Wouldnt you give him the ball. I never heard them complaining when Kobe had all those isos??

And what I thought was hilarious was Kenny Smith tried to make the point about our half court offense at half time. But the examples he used were the one on one plays from Jamal Crawford...as if that signified what the Clippers did in the first half...but there's two problems with that analysis:

  1. Our bench was out there during both those highlights. Not a single starter. As long as there's no CP3 on the floor, you can't really call it our half court offense.

  2. Crawford was hot. You give it to the guy with the hot hand. Who doesn't know that?

Flaker fans still bitching about the CP3 trade as if we were gift wrappped CP3. They keep forgetting that it took two tries for us to get the deal done and we actually preferred keeping a less-proven player in Bledsoe and traded the more established player in Gordon. Meanwhile, the Lakers gave up no youth in that proposed trade.

A year later, after getting the best center in the league, Laker fans are still bitching. Is another fan base that consists of self-entitled cocksuckers other than the Laker fan base?

Barkley just seems invested in hating us. Griffin could magically turn into ZBO overnight and he'd still be picking apart our "half court offense." Grizzlies traditionally don't run a great offense...not sure why he never calls them out for that. Grizzlies played well tonight offensively and we weren't that good...but we still beat them...

The one thing I must say is that the defense really needs to tighten up by thursday. it was phenomenal on saturday and just lousy tonight for the most part. we can be a great defensive team, but they looked off tonight.

They just hating- I stopped watching those two fools (Charles and Kenny) a long time ago. They are so biased that they lose all credibility with me with what they say. Some stuff they say may be true, but I mean I can say 90% sh*t too and then say the obvious like "you score more points, you win the game" (a true statement). It wouldn't make me any less of a dumbass, lol.

The defense on Z Bo was great. Loved the helpout team defense. I'm thinking the grizzlies will be playing Allen more. He did a great job on Crawford in the 2nd half.

just got back from the MADHOUSE. dating back to the days of manning and harper, this was BY FAR the best Clipper home game EVER.

considering the circumstances, its not even debatable.

great physical win, yet ugly.

horrible possessions to end the game. it seemed the last 4 minutes involved CP holding the ball for 20 seconds and then trying to score. cant do that against elite teams and expect to win. (we all know what happened when SAS shut CP down last year).

Frankly, I thought our half court offense was good throughout most of the game. We are guilty of protect-the-lead offense late in many games. I've been critical of that in the past. But at the same time, it's difficult for any team to run a flawless half court offense when the game is tight and only a minute left. A LOT of teams would love to have that superstar who can take over during those moments.

Did Zbo slip or did he get clobbered? When you get into a cold swimming pool you know how your stuff shrinks up? I was feeling like that tonight. We actually didn't play that well.

EBled made a couple of his usual hypertestosterone turn overs and we had several stupid defensive lapses resulting in dunks. Our overall defense was pretty damned good. Chauncey is getting slow but he still has a great BB IQ. Also CP could have kicked that last shot to CB and most likely he would have hit it. As much as we all bitched I'm starting to see his worth.

INTERESTING

I don't think Gasol can guard DJ in the post. I thought Vinnie was going to run things through DJ to get Gasol in foul trouble. Yeah DJ missed a couple but he won't miss most.

As far as butterfingers. Stu "the eeeeezy deuce" Lantz runs big man camps. One thinghe has empahsized over and over is to never expect a big to catch a bounce pass and don't expect them to do anything but bobble the ball if it's thrown waist high or below. Some of his bobbles were low passes. Most bigs can't bend over and grab a low pass.

Chest high.

Why did he let Gasol shoot jumper after jumper? BOX OUT

i find it funny to hear the hate barkley spews about the clips. he is just sad that griffin can win a title and he never could. i watch it cuz shaq always clowns both kenny and charles. its hilarious. great win for this team. the only negative thing i have to say about the clips is that they should not milk clock too early. step on their throats and keep stepping on them til its over.

Sure he doesn't like Blake, but I think it's more that he identifies with Randolph... a fat power-forward who can't run or jump and uses his excess weight to shove people around... and, as you said, won't ever win a title.
