Having wins like this, and having this below going into the Playoffs is a great thing to have.

And then you have the three point shooter. = Deadly

The biggest bucket of the night is when Turko hit a shot to give us the lead.

( Hedo and Turkoglu combined = Turko )

I have to give props to Ross for his attitude throughout the game. Staying calm, unlike some other players I know (Curry, Stephenson, etc.)

First win since 2008, unbelievable.

Still nice to beat the Raptors in a place we haven't won in years. It took a downright heroic effort to do it though.

@isaaclowenkron: In the 4th quarter, @blakegriffin32 and @JJRedick combined for 18 points on 8-9 FG. #Clippers #Raptors #NBA

^^^^^ That Is Impressive #Cltuch Now you have created that and then later you add your points from Chris Paul

I don't buy the only play 35 minutes stuff. If he is on fire and is balling play him as long as he is still scoring and making plays. Terrance Ross played the whole game. He won't do that ever night. But you keep the hottest guy on the floor basketball 101.

Not to mention crawford is top 5 in 4th qtr scoring and leading the league in 4th qtr field goal %. So fuey with your "Assessment.

It's about winning folks...not numbers. Whatever Doc did in the 4th quarter it worked BIG TIME! I, too, was starting to jump on the "maybe we should take JJ out" bandwagon. Glad we didn't now. We all know Jamal is Mr 4th Quarter. Tonight he was our overall go to guy (along with Blake). Also had 11 assists.

By the way, 13 trips to the line for Blake...and he probably deserved more trips than that.

Doc didn't put Crawford back in because we had a comfy lead soon after he was benched and kept it for the rest of the 4th quarter. If the Raptors closed in he probably would have played him.

Good move by Doc. When Redick was injured Crawford played heavy minutes and it probably affected his play because he was playing very poorly during that stretch.

Less minutes=healthier, better Crawford.

Late on Ross being hot meant that there offense became a bit one dimensional at times because they just wanted to get it to him and when that didn't work they had lost the flow.

I got lucky both the last games. Thought both would be more defensive. I'll settle for 2nd place against a fellow countryman in the predictions, though.

In all fairness he couldn't stay on the Floor for more than 5min, he breathed on a player and it was called a foul, but it be's that way sometimes.

I'm a bit disappointed with Blake Griffin, it seems every part of his game is elevating but his rebounding has regressed, he doesn't box out properly and he is constantly trying to grab boards with one hand, it's just frustrating to watch and he's causing us to give up extra possession's. But other than that it was another great game for him, I love how we actually got him the ball down the stretch unlike in Charlotte.

14 total TO's in our last 2 games. If we could just clean up our own glass, we would have so many more possessions than our opponents, it would be hard to lose any game.

Blake's doing everything he can to win games, while Paul's out. It seems to be taking him out of his rebounding game for whatever reason...however his play is definitely leading us to these wins. Once Paul comes back, I'm sure Blake will settle back in his more familiar role while still being assertive.

If we wouldn't have had the lead Doc would've went back to him but once we got a cushion and was defending well he let the starters ride it out.

Crawford is 33 years old so we shouldn't be playing him big minutes unless we absolutely have to and the lead and getting some stops meant we didn't have to.

I agree that Crawford is beastly in the 4th but tonight he came in much earlier in the first half and played the entire half. JJ on the back to back should've had the fresher legs down the stretch and he did.

You can't overlook the fact that Doc kept the starting unit in and once they started doing well why change that? They needed the confidence especially Matt and JJ (Matt who has struggled in the starting lineup and JJ who was horrible in the 3rd) and Collison was in to defend Lowry.

Toronto seems to have a knack for drafting sick Dunkers that can also flat out score, just think mcgrady and carter, now derozan and Ross, if bullock had the potential of Ross I'd have no problem having him start, unfortunately for us he ain't even close

In his post game interview, Blake as asked by a reporter how hard is it for opponents to guard two great shooters like Jamal and JJ as opposed to one. Blake smiled and said, "It's twice as hard." LOL

It really is nice to have 2 quality shooting guards on the team.

I thought the 3 point defense was horrendous in the first half. Ross had at least 5 easy looks. Some other guys were hitting here and there with easy looks.
