We basically have taken down two teams that many have pegged as possible western conference contenders. Not too bad eh?

An up and down bench performance, but I think it's promising. Mullens put in a nice game today on both ends. Collison made a few mistakes on offense, but I like how he really hustled back and made a few blocks.

Postgame. Anybody else notice how weak Clippers Live has gotten on post game interviews? They used to have 3-4 after every game... now we are lucky if we get a 30 second clip of Doc.

Whew. Great game offensively. I thought our starters were magnificent. Defensively we still need to tweak a few things. It seems like it's the bench especially. We'd build a lead, and the bench would lose it in almost shocking fashion. Where's the Collison of the preseason? Once he plays well, our bench should follow suit.

JJ was fantastic! Sure, he missed a few in the second half, but he was I get the feeling if he had to come back in late in the 4th, he'd have found his shot again. Even when he's missing though, it seems like this team is a better unit while he's out there. I know Harden has rough games against us, but JJ didn't make it easy on him. Even when it looked like Harden beat him off the dribble, JJ found a way to get back in front of him and poke the ball away. And somebody said we needed to come out and punch them in the face? That kinda what JJ did tonight!

Paul was great as always. 17 assists and big shots!

Blake was focused. He only grabbed 1 board in the first half, but HELL did anybody miss shots? He had 6 in the second half. He had a great block and some Blake-like hustle plays. I do wonder something. Early on I saw Blake grabbing the front of his shorts. I wonder if there's some minor injury he's nursing. I hope not.

Sure our defense looks flawed. But look who we've been playing. A lot of high scoring teams. And I think our starters have played D fairly well, while the bench has been alarmingly disappointing so far.

I still say this is a great win!

I thought we got a couple calls go our way, as did they. The big one that stood out to me was at the beginning of the half when Howard left his feet and Dudley drew the foul but the refs didn't call his 4th foul..

Very nice win. We answered every run emphatically (even if we did have to bring back starters to do it). I'm ok with Doc playing an all-bench lineup and giving them some time to figure each other out at home... the starters are gelling so well, that they can regain the lead. But on the road, against a decent team, we won't have that luxury.

Glad to see Mullens show up for a change. His best game yet. I hope it gives him some confidence... but not too much.

Good win tonight, the offense was clicking. JJ looks dialed in on the court.

The defense needs to tighten up. Giving up 110 points on a night and expecting your offense to score 120 is a little too much to ask. Can't argue a win over the Rockets though.

Houston GM is actually a class act as he tweets:

"We aren't playing well but the Clippers are very good. Will be very tough to beat by anyone."

and

"Congratulations to CP3 and Doc Rivers, that was impressive."

Is anyone afraid that the clippers may become the next pheonix suns, basically outscoring each team with efficiency scoring instead of being dominant on both ends of the floor. every team has scored 100 or more on us i hope we can start holding team to 90 and under, because if our offense doesn't click then we will get destroyed, i sure hope its correct whether in practice, via trade/signing, etc.

Collison will be fine. Mullens will be fine. Matt will be fine. DJ for MVP. Why didn't he play Willie at garbage? Did anyone notice DJ covering CP in the shoving match?

5 months practice + no injury to BG or DJ + Okafor = ring. If we can get some modicum of control of the paint we're unbeatable. What happened to their Twin Towers? Doc is brilliant. The offense was beautiful to watch. I think doubters such as me are seeing Jamal's place in the offense and he's actually trying on defense.

I'm slipping in my own saliva.

I'm not sure how many. It just seemed like our starters would get a 15-17 point lead, our bench would allow Houston to shave that lead until our starters restored order. 4 of our starting 5 had +/- of +24 or more. The only bench player in the positive was Jamal.

Dudley and Reddick are massive upgrades. Teams have to respect all 3 of our wing starters shooting.

Man if we had these guys against Memphis, no way they would have dared us to shoot and clog the lane and paint.

Just heard on the Colin Cowheard show that since the fans booed Dwight Howard last night, Colin suggested that there were no Clipper fans in LA. He also added that the Clippers are still the ugly sister no one wants to date, yet the Lakers are still the hot sister.

He suggested that we should be cheering Dwight for spurning the Lakers. I understand that there should be hate on certain teams but, my hate grows stronger when it insults our fan base. I'm gonna be tuning in to another station in the mornings from here on out.

I agree with Colin 100% (about the cheering), for the life of me I could not figure why we were booing Dwight every time he touched the ball. We should have been cheering and laughing for the chaos he caused the Lakers, and some of the people sitting next to me agreed.

I saw on the postgame on PrimeTicket there was some idiot holding a Howard laker jersey with a 'C' plastered over the 'H'. There were obviously some laker fans at the game.

As a Clippers fan, I don't agree with mindlessly booing OR cheering him... his shenanigans make no difference to us. Lakers were crap with him and they'll be crap without him.

Yes, it was funny that he left them high and dry, but I don't ever agree with cheering for an opposition player unless they've put in work as a Clipper... Bledsoe deserves a very warm welcome.

Other than those instances, we should make our house intimidating for opposing teams. F*ck what Cowherd says.
