2 rushed shots there- Jamal with another driving miss, then Blake rushed the putback. BIG trouble now.

We blew this game. Don't like Doc's rotations in the 4th quarter.

Now we just have to pray that they don't hit free throws....

Crawford with an awful attempt at a layup. I'm getting tired of his shot selection.

Gotta go for quick 3 at this point, then go for the steal.

Griffin might have been fouled on that one. Oyy, well this one is over

Crawford and Griffin are the only reason we were even in the game.

No one else did anything.

Crawford scored 7 straight in the 4th including a 3 pt

play.

He was going against a center. Should never have gotten to that. Terrible shot selection all game.

I know points early in the game get ignored by people, but they also keep a team in the game

This is flat out embarrassing. Need to win these games! I hate this teams weak mentality like they are so much better than everyone.

He took 11 shots in the 4th and made 4. His shot selection sucked. Way too much hero ball.

Truth.

Blake missed a critical rebound, but it should NEVER have been critical if the 3 through 8 options had even showed up.

Interestingly enough, the Bobcats have been ranked in the top 8 in Drtg all season, and are currently 7th, one spot ahead of the Clippers. Their offense has just sucked a lot. Their weakness? 3PT defense, but the Clippers obviously were unable to take advantage of that.

Also one of their defensive strengths is not fouling, and the 9 FTA in this game by the Clippers tonight supports that

Blake is the only reason we what been competitive in all these game without Paul !! Regroup and win the rest of this road trip !!

So...I'm still at work but was finally on break to check the score...

Why the hell are we so unpredictable? This should have been a win. I'm looking at the box score. Blake's numbers are okay. I mean it looks like he missed some buckets down the stretch, which I don't like to see...but why was it even that close? Blake, Jamal and JJ all look like they put up okay numbers...was it defense? What gives?

Well i mean we have pulled out some big wins too. If chris paul was here this game would be a lot more stable and jamal wouldn't have taken terrible shots in the last minute

Contral the turnovers like I said. JJ with a crucial turnover. IMO a bad shot is a turnover. Had a lot of both in the end. Chris Paul was needed in this game. Also I....

Hmmm... maybe Orlando, but at least they played well. Charlotte weren't anything special tonight, we just gave them way too much.

I don't think they won this one... we lost it.

He's keeping his "pace" alive and well with 21 FGA's in 28 mins. mad

the problem is he is the only wing guy we have that can get in the lane and semi attack the rim with finger rolls. We have no wings that can attack the rim and it seems as though Doc doesn't want any so we settle with the finger roll and prayer for a call.

I'm getting real sick of Crawford shitting a brick house game after game...

I am not a fan of that expression. They beat us, let's not take credit away from winners. I don't like when the clippers win and other teams say "they didn't bet us." Bottom line, charlotte played well enough to win and we didn't. They have no one to blame but themselves. But they were outplayed by the bobkittens. That is hopefully a wake up call.

Go back to work. Even if your job was cleaning toilets, it would be more fun than this game.

True, they weren't special, but they did all the little things to win. Didn't foul like they've been doing all season. Protected the ball, which is the only thing they do well on offense outside of drawing fouls. They are generally a terrible shooting team.

The Clippers shot 6/26 3PT against a team that gives up 37.7% 3PT, raked 28th in the league. You gotta do better than that for sure.

Bench had 11 Rebounds, 8 Assist and 29 points (Crawford 20 points) in 85.90 minutes playing time for bench players. We received no help from the bench other than Crawford.

Team Shoot 6-26 (23%) from 3 point range, 39-90 (43%) from 2 point range.

Doc needs to do something about the bench because it is not working.

Well he tried, that is why he moved Dudley to the bench, partly to get more offense out of the bench.

What an awful loss. Clippers looked like they were in control with a 5 point lead midway through the 4th, but a couple of sloppy possessions afterwards allowed the Bobcats to catch up. Then they take advantage of the Clipper bench to start the 4th, and unfortunately, the Clippers could not make enough plays down the stretch to pull it out. That 0.3 second putback by the Bobcats was a really big play it turned out.

When the 3 point shot is way off, the Clippers become very beatable. JJ didn't have it, nor did Dudley, and Crawford was only 2 for 8 himself. You take out Collison's 2 for 3, and the team combined for an atrocious 4 out of 26 from deep. That erases the excellent efforts by DeAndre Jordan (another 20 rebound game) & Blake Griffin.

Blake, as good of a game he had, made a couple of judgement errors down the stretch, however. First, when he was tripled team inside late in the game, he could have passed it out to a wide-open Redick, but he chose to try to force it up inside & missed. Then after Crawford missed early on the shot-clock, Blake got the rebound, and instead of gathering himself or resetting the play, he toss the ball up too quickly and missed. And finally not being able to convert the layup attempt after the timeout. Blake is getting better, and this will serve as another learning experience for him.

Despite the misses down the stretch, it looks like BG's +/- was decent. The loss just looks weird based on the box score.

When you choose to slack off on defense and take way too many outside shots when they're not falling... you GIVE the other team the game.

Sounds like one of those games where having CP3 would have made a world of difference. Unlike the last game, we only Blake and DC had 5 assists or more.

We were "minus" in the defense department tonight and that's why we lost this game.

I'm reading some of the older posts. Did our bench cost us the game? Still trying to figure this out.

I think Doc not putting Blake & DJ in until the 6 minute mark really hurt us. Could've easily won that game IMO if Blake was being fed more in the last quarter.

Bit harsh, other than CP they the only 2 that can create a shot for themselves or others, honestly who else would you turn to on offense

Mullens being put in which and Blake and DJ being put in so late were very questionable and bizarre decisions. In my opinion if we never put in Mullens and put in Blake and DJ earlier we would have most likely won.

Hmmm...okay thanks. Well, one of those live and learn games, I guess.

Yup. Doc shares blame for this one. Blake was up and ready at 8:00 and Doc waved him away.
