Clippers look more tired than the Jazz tonight.

Yeah, and that second night of a back-to-back doesn't seem to be bothering them too much. That's pretty much only an impossible challenge for us, apparently. roll

Not getting offensive rebounds is going to kill the Clips. Ugh.

Barnes should've passed to Blake there. Instead he misses another layup smh

Matt hasn't been really consistent in finishing at the basket. I wonder if his thumb injury is still bothering him.

DJ having his annual huge second half of season drop a few weeks early. He's been a scrub lately. I don't care if he rebounds he's getting obliterated by everybody he guards and showing the worst rim protection I've ever seen. I'd consider bringing him off the bench and starting Hedo/Blake for a while.

Jazz only shooting 41%, that's good...but they've made 6 3's we've made 0. FT line killing us too.

He just had 20 rebounds a night ago. Last year we'd be ranting and raving about a 20 rebound game, and now it's not even mentioned. Realize that DJ has been excellent on defense 80% of the time, and unfocused 20%. He rotates exceedingly well, however when the rest of the team does not, you end up dropping the blame on him. Unfair and stupid.

The Clips need CP ASAP. The floor general has fresh legs so at least that's a plus going forward.

We still don't rotate well.

Actually DJ is well below average in individual rim defense and if you can't admit his drop on D the last two weeks I'm not sure you're watching much. Not only is it proven by numbers but anybody watching sees it. DJ has ZERO business cheating 15 feet off his man EVER and he does it 15 times a game. How often do you see Hibbert at the 3 point line as his man gets a dunk with nobody within 10 feet of him?

Bad perimeter D or not DJ's is to protect the paint, nothing else. Blake is far superior at switches and PNR traps, let him handle it.

Defense>>>>>>>rebounding for a center that's supposed to be anchoring the D.

I see a 4-game losing streak on the horizon playing like this. Already lost to the Warriors, and the Nuggets (in Denver) and Heat are coming up. Looking forward to the excuses about how "tired" they are like the grind of an NBA schedule is not something that every team has to deal with.

Blake leads the break and dishes to Collison for the layup!

Have you seen Blake try to protect the paint? He doesn't. I agree with your point that DJ 1) cheats too much, and 2) Has become less effective on the defensive (and offensive) end in the past stretch, but in no way should we slot Blake at the 5 and Hedo at the 4. DJ is trying to shore up one of the most pock-ridden paint defenses in the league. And I agree, he's not trying hard enough.

You would complain either way when he rotates to alter or stop someone his man is left open NO ONE HELPS and then he is being destroyed if he sticks to his man easy buckets why is he not helping when the rim is being attacked.

I want him to focus on his rebounding and man d I'm happy with the help d.

Icecold I agree it's a team problem but he's supposed to be the anchor/leader of the D.

A little late to the party but what is up with Blake's foul shooting?

He has had some bad lapses I just believe its not a horrible choke streak. He was pretty damn important in the Wiz win even last year it wasn't really being horrible in the regular season just Vinny having more faith in Odom.

I feel the D could be even worse if he had not improved a leap I think as a team Doc needs to continue to pound a defensive mindset into everyone.

Seems more often than not whenever he rotates a kick off happens. I rather he sticks to his man because most of the time the opposing C has a jumper.

Crawford has been a monster this season even when in slumps he has come out blazing when back on.

Offensive rebounds are still a problem for the Clips, leading easy baskets for the Jazz. Ugh. I hope our team get this straightened out soon.
