Big first half by Blake.

I don't get why it took Blake 4 years to learn that with his freak athleticism he could get to the line at will. Face up, attack. 21 at halftime.

I think his better FT shooting has helped his confidence in this area. On top that he's improved his handle, so he's more dangerous facing up now.

Hollins had some good minutes hopefully Doc trusts him again to switch things up.

I left for work, Blake had 6 points. 21 before half! What the...?

One thing I noticed before I left is JJ cuts to the basket a LOT and nobody gives him the ball. I'm pretty sure some easy layups are there for the taking. Otherwise sounds like he's made a couple of nice buckets and already has 5 assists. And Jamal is, thankfully, playing like he played before the slump.

In the last seven games as a starter Darren Collison has averaged 15.0 points, 6.7 Assists, and 55% FG. This as well as Blake Griffins 4.75 assists per game since Chris has been out almost come close to the 11+ assists that Chris averages. This amazing ball movement by the guys is a huge reason we are 6-2 since the Dallas game.

Great point! I guess if I was a terrible FT shooter I wouldn't be eager to get to the line either.

I like the Clippers' 11-point lead at the half. I hope they pad it even more for a W.

We've done a good job keeping Monroe and Smith off the boards. Not to mention Jennings has 0 pts and Monroe only has 4 pts. IF we keep this up, we'll win this one easily.

confidence in free throws and in jumper makes a world of a difference.

If he keeps this up and continues to not complain to the refs, he'll be getting to the line as much as Harden or Durant, who both get FTs every time they someone puts a finger on them.

Lots of points in the paint, and not many jumpers, strong start. It has been a dunk fest 1st half.

Turk has more rebounds than Blake! I ain't mad about it though.

I'm not loving Blake's 5-8 FT shooting after all the progress he's made. But even great FT shooters have those kind of games.

Matt Barnes on Josh Smith? I don't like that idea.

Mike Smith = Buffoon. Rwddick's 2 4 pt conversions are impressive, but wtf was his emphasis of it being an afternoon game? Why does that matter?

It was a joke. Lawler was ragging on him because he quoted an irrelevant Josh Smith stat earlier.

he is a 72% FT shooter. If he hits his next 2 he will

be right at his average. What are you talking about?

Just nitpicking. You know Blake's my boy and have been praising his FT shooting all season!

Redick is amazing. I don't look back at the Bledsoe trade at all..especially since I know Bledsoe is out indefinitely lol.

It is, when you aren't as confident at the line, you don't feel it is as beneficial for you to be there. Now, the reality is that as long as you are hitting 55%+ at the line, you are technically doing better than an offense can do, but a 55% FT shooter isn't thinking "well I'm scoring 1.1 pts/possession, he's thinking I could be scoring 2 instead.

I didn't even hear that Josh Smith stat, but I thought the "afternoon" comment was pretty funny. Mike Smith always says something that makes you raise your eyebrows. I remember when the Clips lost to the Suns and Mike made a bunch of obscure guarantees.

Hope Dudley takes notes on just being active like Barnes and cut if shot is not falling more often. Think Barnes just started this game to be physical with Smith.

nice curl dunk. I want to see Hedo and Dudley take more shots. Unless Dudley has a new injury he is being way to passive with his shot selection.

Holy crap on that lob from JJ DJ almost hit his head on the rim.

Should be illegal to be that long and have that much boost

I'm trying to think about Dudley cutting to the rim. You're right he doesn't seem to do it much. He could probably contribute more points if he did that.

Need to play D. Looks good. A good start in the 4th and the game is ours.

Is it just me or does Darius Morris kind of look like Nick Young.

Hollins signaling to come out hurt his back.

He does look like Nick Young, I keep thinking, what is Nick Young doing on the court

I think it is also that he kinda moves like Young

Dudley looks so much better moving laterally on defense, he's actually staying in front of people consistently. Probably figured out that it helps to get low Wink

DJ can easily average 14 points a game if he didn't try to freakin dunk the ball every time

How much fun is that though?

It's good to see Hedo getting to the basket, he should be finishing a bit better in traffic as he gets back in the groove

Hedo missed but has to try and work his shot back eventually.
