We can only go so long with Paul missing shots. I had a feeling our two guys, Blake and JJ, who played so well last game were going to have some issues tonight. We have got to have the others step up.

I can't believe the Clippers are only down 1 at this point. Need to be more intense & focused, foul less, and this should be a W especially with Tony Allen ejected.

CP3, Redick, Crawford all in the 1/6 club.

Last year during our 17 game win streak I was probably the only griping about our defense. Saying that the way we were winning was troubling and not sustainable. What do you know? We go just over .500 for the last 3 months of the season.

Similar situation. Sure we are getting good wins right now with CP3 shooting so awful but I promise you it WILL bite us in the ass, sooner than later and in a costly way if he doesn't fix it soon. The hard part of our schedule to start the season is only half way through. This week we have 2 back to backs, 4 games in 5 nights.. including against 3 good teams. I don't know if you know how much that affects a team.

Without CP3 scoring more efficiently I won't be surprised if we lose 3 of the next 4. He's our best threat outside of Blake on offense, can't be absent.

His biggest problems is he keeps on shooting. He needs to mix it up and get some lay ups.

Yup. He's scared to shoot inside. He's getting wide open at the rim and instead of going for it.. he's dribbling circles and passing out to guys with 3 seconds left on the clock. Attack the rim more.. that ALWAYS gets the shooting touch going again eventually. Can't just shoot a bunch of 18 footers.

I just saw the replay of what Tony Allen did. WTF?! Unbelievable. What a dirty play. This is not soccer. He deserved to be ejected for kicking CP in the face.

Yeah I know Mike Smith says Allen turned around and seemed to react like he "didn't mean" to kick Paul. But...um...what the hell were you doing then? Trying to kick the ball? Just Memphis trying to get away with another dirty play.

Yeah, sit him for a couple of games damn it. Who cares if he has 8 assists, 7 rebounds and is 6-7 at the FT line so far in this game.

He's not scared to shoot inside. It's just he doesn't know how to move without the ball to get easy looks. All of his points come from isolation plays

Paul is not a threat offensively right now, I don't care what the box score says. On a different note, I like DJ on zbo. His length bothers him.

I'm gonna be blunt. We don't win if our guards can't shoot.

The ONLY thing they do is call iso plays on his big men. Just D the f*** up. Blake is having trouble defending Gasol..

I swear there is no verticality rule when it comes to the clippers. Blake did the same thing Roy hibbert does all the time but its a foul on him?

Stop complaining about Blake's D. He can't play aggressive D because he freaking has 4 fouls and he's guarding a much bigger player.

Griffin going off.. is pretty much our only chance at this rate. CP3/Redick/Crawford shooting like 20 percent or worse combined. I know plenty of time.. but Memphis proving they can just iso bigs and score every single time.

Not that important in absence of a win, but CP3 just scored 10+ assists and 10+ points for his first 11 games of the season, matching Magic Johnson's record.

Maybe a quick double and force them to shoot 3

Has anyone watched a grizzlies game besides when they play the clippers? Its so crazy because the zach and gasol never get these crazy fouls

Yea i don't know what's up with that. Dudley needs to double down immediately. Prince isn't really that big of a shooting threat anymore.

Gasol always has this girly, whiny look on his face. Has anyone noticed that? What is frustrating is we can't sustain any momentum because our defense sucks so much.
