Agreed. Took good shots. Bad luck in some of them, decent D and good effort. He made good decisions. Im happy with the way JD is playing now. He really is close to being the player we hoped when we signed him.

game thread on mavsmoneyball.com is a pretty hilarious read if you're looking to waste 10mins. The crescendo of emotion is fascinating. Other revelations include they are not big Blake Griffin fans and we paid off the refs.

If that was Joey Crawford he would've handed Dalembert a toothbrush shiv and then looked away before calling a flagrant 2 on Blake.

This was a good win because it allows Doc to demonstrate his point that the game is never over until the final buzzer.

Not only did JJ play well, but nobody else in the game touched his +/-.

I'm not going to hate on Joey... the other Crawford f*cks us MUCH more.

Effing Shaq was on NBATV saying the reason people mess with Blake is because "he doesn't stick up for himself"...Jesus Christ! This still? Doc and the rest of our guys appreciate that, while he did get in the dude's face, he kept his composure. And by the way, that's NOT why they do it, Shaq. They do it because he instigates it. They had the lead at that point. And Blake made something happen. It's that simple! I finally get it. Blake's much smarter than these analysts. He's an effing genius compared to the talking heads.

Blake's been playing chess this whole time while everyone else plays checkers!

Wow what an exciting game! Defense sucked but the Mavs gave away the game and we took it without asking questions! The momentum really shifted once Carter got that tech, seemed like the team really bonded together and put their nose to the grindstone.

I recorded the 2nd half so I could watch it after watching a movie. All I can say is I'm glad I didn't turn the game off once we went down by 17. I was tempted to, but I couldn't in good faith give up then. What a game?!

He's extremely clutch against us and defends Blake better than anybody I've ever seen. Completely shuts him down.....literally.

My wife just told me her comedy fantasy team...

Austin Daye

Nick Young

Ramon Sessions

Kevin Love

Rudy Gay

Brandon Knight

So her starting lineup + 6th man would be...

Young, Gay, Love, Sessions, Daye and Knight.

Now that's a huddle!

Mav's Fans are Hilarious, Despite watching the Same game everyone else watched they are puzzled on why they had a 60 to 40 advantage in the Paint and went to the Free throw line way less, Ignoring the fact that most of their paint bucket were put backs and runners. They somehow think the refs gave us the game, and the Mavericks didn't Choke and play stupid basketball down the stretch. It's downright comedy.

I hear allot of "Blake the Instigator", I don't believe that, does he talk smack, yeah maybe, but instigating is a little much. He gets fouled hard, he then retaliates and he receives a Tech, afterwards he's still fouled hard throughout the game (yeah I'd keep chirping two). He's then thrown down on purpose while he's trying to box out for the Offensive rebound. I still see no instigating, it's not like he makes hard fouls on the other end, or participate in dirty plays, that's more of instigating, what he does is Open his mouth and talk's back to the other team, heck what's wrong with that, he can't just stand there and not say anything when someone talks to him or foul him hard unnecessarily, I think he has every right to talk, but unless he's Physically invoking warranted retaliation, I don't see him as an instigator because of the simple fact that he touches nobody. He just likes to Talk and so does every great competitor, that's a good thing. Plus instigating is the wrong word to use here anyway, you can say he gets into the other teams head, or he provokes people, but I think people think he's soft and they think if they hit him he'll disappear, something made up by Skip Bayless and has been proven not to be true all year long by Blake.

Just came back from the game and I must say "Wow!" What a game. The crowd was basically quiet for first third quarter and with Mavs leading 20 points, it was very quiet. I saw some fans starting to leave early and beat the traffic. I am glad they did because after those fans left, the Clippers start making their moves and mount a huge comeback. The best part is seeing how the Mavericks lose their cool and gave us technical fouls to help us out. Eventually when JJ Redick make that 3's, Staples Center was rocking and was so loud. I was so proud of my Clippers tonight, the way they showed heart and grits on the game tonight. Great game!

What I am proud the most was Blake defending himself. He is done taking crap from anyone and I see many times he was jawing back at defenders and tell them not to push him the wrong way. This is the Blake that everyone want to see. I don't agree that Blake is the Instigator, I see more like he Finally have the cajones to step up and defend himself. This helps us a lot because the Mavs lost their cool and hence the tech. Great job Blake!

When I say instigator, I mean he gets physical, probably talks crap, he does things that gets in his opponents' heads. I mean it in a good way.

By the way, how about Blake's screens to open JJ up for that final 3 pointer? It wasn't a hard screen by any stretch of the imagination. But Blake started with a screen for Jamal, then he made a mad dash toward JJ to screen him. Obviously a designed play. It was just enough to give JJ some room.

And how awesome is it that JJ kicked butt against Ellis and Carter, two guys who started over him on his old teams?

Both Crawfords are garbage but I agree Joey Crawford is the worse of the worse and that is saying a lot because I can't think of a single ref that is "good".

I finally finished watching the last 2 quarters on replay on Prime Ticket. WOW!!! What a thrilling game!!! So many things came together for the Clippers --- this has got to be a major confidence booster for them. Loved how Doc always has the most potent plays after timeouts. Great win!

Did anybody happen to catch First Take today? They were talking about the best teams in the West and on the little graphic on the bottom they showed the top 5 records in the West as this: 1. Spurs 2. Blazers 3. Thunder 5. Rockets

Notice any team missing in that list of best records in the West? Also, I'm not a mathematician but I could've sworn that 4 comes after 3

Ehhh ya win some ya lose some....or in the case of the Clippers and the media, ya lose some and ya lose some more.

Who cares what First Take saids anyway....blah, blah, blah = nothing. Just need to filter/edit your media sites.

Now these guys give the Clips their due (almost half way mark Rankings, LOL)....and the New GM for the Raptors.

First Take is a joke now and I'm not even talking about them hating on the Clippers. The entire show is just two egomaniacs yelling at each other. I haven't watched in a while, but when I did this is what the show consisted of:

Skip: I still believe Tim Tebow can be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

Stephen: It's a travesty that he ever had a job in the first place. He never belonged in the NFL.

OR

Skip: The Spurs are head and shoulders the best team in the NBA.

Stephen: That's asinine! LEBRON JAMES! LEBRON JAMES! Oh wait, I forgot! You went from his biggest hater to his biggest apologist.

Cari Champion(host): What about the Lakers?

I want to see Houston vs. Dallas and see who can choke the fastest. Still think Dallas is best but Houston can contend for sure.

I liked it for a little while, but I eventually got tired of them just yelling at each other about the same stuff. Stephen A and Skip Bayless arguing isn't the way I like to start out my mornings.

Well after last night they might win the choke prize. 73 in the first half and 19 in the second. The TWolves are pretty good at it too.

To each their own I guess.

Also, I usually don't listen in the mornings. I just listen to the podcast later in the day.

We would have to absolutely r*** the Pacers to get a little respect! That is just a little! When the Clipper win it is always more of why the other team lost rather than why....
