Doc shouldn't of had Crawford in the damn game he shouldn't even talk. Dudley is paid to be a defender at the very F'n least play him in that situation or trade him.

I'm getting very tired of seeing roster spots wasted on guards. I seriously don't understand how there hasn't even been an attempt made to bring in a third big.

Well other than that missed free throw at the end, Blake had a monster game. That's one positive to take from this game. 36pts, 11rebs, 4asts, 0 turnovers. Blake and CP3 will be a scary combo once CP's healthy.

We can't even talk about a big in a game like this because Hollins was having a great game and on played 5 mins. Collison not being in killed us when the offense was getting nothing.

Dudley is more accurately paid to be a shooter than a defender. Technically, Barnes is paid to be a defender, but Barnes likes to reach and foul and get beat off the dribble also.

Still can't believe that Denver celebration lmao. It reminded me of the Bulls celebrating their 6th after Jordan hit the shot over Russell. Can't stop laughing.

I hope a rebounding big will come to the clippers and that Trkoglu plays more at the 3 than at the 4. He gives his best but he is not a rebounder. For a guy who plays only 11 minutes he contributed more than Barnes and Dudley.

It's the missed free throws and horrible offensive rebounds that really allowed the Nuggets to hang on and ultimately win the game.

5 feet is about as close as you can get to a Nugget player without getting called for a foul. Blake had no choice.

Road record in general is bad (14-14) after tonight. Dudley going from actually good to atrocious in home vs road probably helps play into that. For his career he has been even, but this year it's been night and day. Lost in the last few weeks play is that the defense has been subsiding.

I'll agree with you that the game shouldn't have come down to a fluke shot. Also, the Clippers are 2-11 when it comes to games in Denver. What made you think this was going to be an "easy" win in any sort of way?

He's actually doing well in the rebounding dept. We need help from our SF, SG and PG positions. Paul we'll help went he returns at least at the PG spot.

That sucked, Marc Davis strikes again. Would have preferred Willie in there instead of Crawford for the last play. Blakes monster night was wasted

LOL, he's what this team is missing. Can you imagine him, Blake and this new and improved DJ? We would never get out rebounded again.

So can we trade Dudley for a ham sandwich? Or is that offer not on the table? I'm hungry

Well vented but Doc has to make an adjustments on rebounding schemes team rebounding has to be the focus. Limit the freaking leak outs.

Somebody on the Clippers either banged Marc Davis' wife or bullied him back in high school because the dude obviously got a vendetta against us. Hate to blame the zebras but even a non Clipper fan would admit all the calls went in Denver's favor, oh well at least theres next game...

We should at least push for an Italian meatball or a quality turkey sandwich. We don't want to come out on the short end of this trade.

You have to remember the opposing GM has a job to make his team better also, he can't just be throwing out favors to the Clippers.

DJ's defense was pretty bad today. Watch the game again and look at just him. He did pick it up in the 4th but there are 3 other quarters

Im shocked that a Player who didnt play for one year (Turk) handles and create more than Barnes and Dudley. And respect to you guys how you support Dudley and Barnes. At least Barnes plays defence but Dudley plays really bad on defence and offense. He looks out of shape.

I missed pretty much the whole game because I was at work. I remember on break I saw Blake lead the team to, like, an 8 point lead heading into half time. I sit down at my desk and turn on the score and it's freakin' tied at halftime. What the heck, man?

The Problem was not DJ. The Problem was that the Guards and Sf watched the whole time on the Rebounds they didn`t help DJ and Blake.

We outscored Denver by 12 when Dudley was on the floor tonight, I don't think he deserves much criticism for the result this particular game. Barnes is more athletic than Dudley, but Dudley I think plays much smarter on defense than Barnes.

Our biggest problems tonight were Faried and Lawson, Chandler had a pretty unremarkable game.

I have a good feeling about the Heat game, which is going to make this game harder to swallow. Miami is 0-5 since 2008 on the Clippers home court.

When they blew the lead at the end of the 2nd, I knew they were going to lose it eventually. Allowing consecutive offensive rebounds on free throws is simply inexcusable. Reemphasizes the point that they need another big to clean up the boards.

Also, can someone explain to me why Crawford was on the floor for the final shot instead of Dudley? What the heck Doc?

Sometimes I think one of the things we miss most about Chris Paul is his rebounding. Collison is fairly average rebounder at PG, but Paul is one of the best and helps make for the bad rebounding of Crawford and Redick.

Because Dudley is out of shape and a bad defender. wink

Maybe Doc didn't want bring him cold or something, particularly when he's not 100% physically? I don't know, but even limping around he's a better 3 point defender than Crawford. Maybe could have used something like Collison-Redick-Barnes-Griffin-Jordan if he didn't want to use either of them.

That has to be ranking total rebounds because the Clippers have currently played the most games in the NBA.

Sadly, we are 18th in rebounds per game, and 14th in defensive rebounds per game, but considering pace and rebound opportunities, we are actually a miserable 25th in defensive rebound percentage.

No that's team rebounds per game...and per this site we are ranked 12th in total rebounds per game. One of the sites is wrong.

Maybe they missed an update because NBA.com also has us at 18th and 14th on defensive:

http://stats.nba.com/leagueTeamGeneral. ... tOrder=DES

Then 5th last in defensive rebound percentage from NBA.com and Basketball-reference

http://stats.nba.com/leagueTeamGeneral. ... ode=Totals

Oh, never-mind, they are talking about TEAM rebounds, not total rebounds. Team rebounds as in when the ball rebounds and goes out of bounds and you get the ball for example, never-mind, lol. Yea, their total rebounds per game has us at 12th.

We got shafted by the game, what'd Denver have like 20 straight possessions that yielded free throws leading up to that game winner by Foye?

With that said, I was hoping we'd intentionally foul Faried as soon as he touched it on the last possession.

The blown flagrant on Blake comes to mind as well, but I think what stands out most to me were all the sloppy passes in the second half, which I credit to fatigue.

On another note we seem to have issues defending an inbound play for a 3 pointer.

Seriously we know they are setting up for a 3 so why don't we actually do something about it, to much space. All Blake had to do was imagine that Kia parked there and lift off, he would have blocked the shot with his head
