Exactly- why run around the screens- you're dead if you do that vs the Spurs and don't switch. And don't stick him so closely. Parker wants to shoot the J and go for 40 that way, okay best of luck, but layups- not OK. Collison just not very good defensively in his awareness tonight. Same goes for the trapper- DJ and Griffin coming to "trap" would just allow an easy pass between them to Duncan, enabling 1)an open Duncan jumper or 2)another quick pass from Duncan to a cutter for the layup. Or, the show from the big man, but Collison doesn't react fast enough, ends up chasing Parker who effectively blows past the Clipper big man en route for the layup/dish. Repeat many, many times, just substitute Parker for Ginobilli, and Collison for Dudley. The same friggin' play. Speaking of Dudley- it was sad seeing him getting chasing Ginobilli- just a complete, utter mismatch. You just CANNOT allow that. You always need Barnes in there if Ginobilli is on the floor.

BTW you want to trap, it better be a darn good one, keep your arms up high and legs sticking out. Kick, scratch, do whatever you need to do, otherwise, please don't bother. Your point guard gets picked off by your man, you better the heck switch to prevent the layup.

The team last year felt more complete, which is why I worry. Three games now too where we laid eggs defensively in first half. That is shocking given doc is the coach. Not sure what that us about, but they better address it.

Man that game sucked. It's the spurs though I am always hoping to keep it close, let alone win against them

Repped High Quality Post

No more Vinny = No more Vinny troll. Cause and effect, my friend.

As far as our defense David I think you said it all.

I know we couldn't keep Bledsoe. He's gonna get maybe $11 mil plus however he's what we need at starting SG. Let's say Bledsoe esque With CP gone we have nobody who can get to the rim. We then become a jump shooting team. Our offense was "Give it to JC and let him chuck" Forget Paul's MVP gifts, he could get to the rim at will. There is no inside out. They pretty much left Blake alone and made us shoot J's. We were cold from 3. Unless you have consistent three point shooters like Klay Curry it's a recipe for disaster. JJ and Paul are both gone so there goes our consistancy. Collison can drive but all he does is lay it up.

We look at how many points SAS scored in the first half but remember how few we scored. It looked like the reincarnation of VDN. Forget big men. Hollins is servicable and MAYBE Jamison will do something. Maybe it is Bullock. I think we got a problem

I wonder what the roster changes are that Ralph was talking about?

Chris Pauls MVP Case Has Been Proven! That Is 1 things I took from this game! I also took that this Clipper team can still be good without Chris! Our Team played great in the Second Half just couldn't get timely stops! It was a 12 point game from being a 30+ game! We should come out highly aggressive against the Megic! This is a MUST WIN! It builds everyones confidence and tells them WE CAN WIN WITHOUT CHRIS! Again A MUST WIN GAME!

I'm confident Doc will get this team to play solid basketball, even without Paul. We just had no time to adjust between Friday and Saturday. We'll be alright.

Look How Close The West Is! Top 3 Separated by .5 games! Next 3 Also Separated by 1 or .5 games!

See Why I said Monday is a must win! It will build our guys confidence and they believe they can win without Chris Paul!

We have Orlando at Staples Monday Boston @ Home on Wednesday Lakers @ Home on Friday

Possible 3-0 week could change this whole Western Conference! Portland is finally coming down to earth and The Thunder lost Westbrook and is trying to figure things out! Spurs will always be Spurs! The Clips sit 4 games behind Oklahoma! 3-0 week will be BIG for US! Why?

Confidence without Chris for the Team Offense may lack but It will allow OUR team to grow on Defense ( Blake and DJ mostly) Defense will improve and then JJ Returns there comes our Consistent Offense in the Starting Unit! Our Team now has Confidence on Offense and on Defense and in themselves! This time without Chris will improve our team in the long run to play without Chris and not be so dependent on him!

Doc will have this team playing playing exceptional BASKETBALL! Defense will have to be better to win any of these games! NO 70 point first halves! NO 70% shooting games for opponents! The good thing about the injury is that We have been without JJ and going to be without Chris and we know about the Bynum Situation and Odom possibility, it will be like we will have a completely new team come All-Star Break!

LETS GO CLIPPERS! In Doc I trust!

Anyone else notice that we only play the most elite teams when we find out one of our guys is out for a few weeks? First Indiana after Redick, then San Antonio after Paul. I think we should sit Blake the game right before our next Portland, OKC and Miami game, just in case. Razz
