If DJ can perform well in larger amounts of minutes, hit 50-55% of his FT's I'd be happy. But, I'm cautiously optimistic with this guy. He should have broken out or been better by now and he's been on the same level for the last 3 seasons. Some would say he's even regressed a little.

So far it would appear that these improvements are permanent. We will be fine with DJ.

Yeah it's looking good so far. Maybe we have our big 3.

Just out of curiosity, and not that it matters, but why is GSW ahead of us in the standings even though we beat them. Shouldn't we technically be ahead of them?

The problem is it's looking less and less like he's gonna be shooting 50% from the FT line. Still, I gotta applaud DJ's defensive intensity so far.

What were the rotations for the bigs like last night. Did Mullens, Hollins and Jamison get any mins?

Or if you can't be bothered to answer my question where can I find a box score for the game.

(I don't get to watch the games due to time difference I am downloading it now.)

Made the mistake of watching First Take. Even with a big win against a hot shooting Curry, they are not impressed. Still harping on Blake's low post game. Stephen A talking about how Blake needs to be back to the basket. But didn't Doc say he wants BG NOT to be back to the basket? Has he changed his mind? This is Blake's dilemma.

Look at the LA Times. they have us listed as last behind Gs and the Fakers. Why,no respect. In ffotball or baseball it would be by total points for and against if there were a tie. Evidently in the NBA is is because we are the Clippers.

BTW,very fun game to be at. Super enjoyable. Bummed to see the STH that used to sit around me bailed and have been replaced with broker owned seats,which means sitting next to non-Clipper fans a lot (as last night).

I hate to keep harping on this but not a lot of people are giving credit to JJ in this game. Not only did he have 17 points and a dagger. He also had 5 rebounds and we need our guards to grab some boards. He was +15 last night and his guy Klay Thompson only had 7 attempts and -13. Some of that was Jamal also who had a good game, but 6'7 guards were supposed to be a problem for 6'4 JJ. As long as JJ does a decent job of ball denial, I'm happy.

Very good point. Cos Klay killed the Fakers scoring 38.

It's so frustrating I really want to watch last nights game and am downloading at the moment but my connection is so crap. I have been downloading for at least an hr and I only have 2% so far.

didn't get a chance to watch the game but glad Blake got 10 boards. DJ 3 for 12 FT ugh. I just watched the video below and CP3 was absolutely brilliant.

JJ was great but most have taken all of Klay's energy just to guard Paul. + a back to back.

Yeah, I heard Paul say that, but that was much later in the game. Klay was silent early and often.

What I liked about the game last night

The new video open is cool, this will sound like a contradiction, but it had a contemporary Film Noir style.

The team looked focused.

I take back everything bad I have ever said about DJ and his effort, if he misses FT in the 4th quarter, leave him in because he hustled in other areas.

No more dancing and cool handshakes on the sideline, the team was standing during the 4th quarter watching and listening to the coach.

When it got a little chippy with 2:50 left in the 2nd quarter, the team bum rushed the opposition, unlike a few years ago when Lee or Z-Bo slammed Blake and there was a MAJOR delayed reaction.

Lob City returned when our defense made it happen.

So if this is our new attitude, I welcome the new moniker "Mob City" our boys carried a big stick.

And in the words of the famous actor Rowdy Roddy Piper from the film They Live,

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."

Who was guarding Klay anyway? In the LAL game.

Interesting stat: No one has had a 40+/15apg+/5stl+ statline since 1973. Shocked

Can someone explain why the talking heads are even further off our bandwagon after our victory, yet golden state gets a pass? Yes cp3 won't go for 40 every night, but not every team has a curry that can just shoot lights out. Crazy. I don't get why it is so fashionable to knock us. I do agree blake needs to be more dominant and get better post position, but he is capable. All these pundits were praising us and two games In it is back to same old same old.

In a side note, lakers fans seem to think that they are as good as gsw and us. They think we won because golden state was away from home and on a back to back. I watched that lakers game - never seen so many wide open threes. At least we contested almost everything except for that wide open curry three in the corner when our bench was in,

he played 41 mins....and no he wouldn't have gotten more rebounds than Howard. Howard had a monster game along with Omer.

Same reason they ignored the other 6 baskets Blake had that weren't dunks, while singling out one of his 3 misses of the night.

It is bias of course and it might just be down to the individuals...........don't know. But though it is annoying, very annoying, it does have a good side to it. This Clips team have so much hype and I think it is better if we are under the radar or under estimated at least

I'm not going to pretend like Jordan was tough by shoving Bogut. He got pushed back and only has people laughing at him. He didn't accomplish anything.

But we played excellent and they were with us the whole game even after all the dunks and showing out. I do not want to mess with them in the playoffs.
