WoW. Do not want to see these guys in the Playoffs. Johnson doing a heck of a job. Nice Player. Memphis is not slouch. Been playing great basketball. Clips bench killed them in the first....

Exactly. Like Joe and I said earlier I dread the "big" games now.

You can accept mediocrity and getting flat-out punked by any half-decent team, but I refuse to. We deserve better than this mentally-weak garbage. Games like this make me ask myself, "we waited so long through so many losing years for THIS?"

3 lucky points there. The refs are actually helping us for once.

Johnson is a tweener, don't hate, he'll give you some MMA action. One of the guys in the NBA no player would actually want to fight because he actually knows real fighting

Don't even need upgraded IQ just need to be able to shoot the 3 ball at an average level and/or make free throws....

13/23 from the line. 1/10 from 3. Shocked

A payer can't take away landing space, it's a call they make quite frequently. That's how ankles get twisted

It's not accepting mediocrity. We're down only 3 at the half, and you're acting as though the Clippers lost in the first round. There's still 30 minutes of basketball to be played, and you're all ready to commit seppuku.

Grow up and get some perspective.

We missed a lot of FT we need to make it to win this game.

Bingo!

He also sees someone driving to the basket that is not on the weakside, and he basically gives them the open lane and watches without trying to alter the shot...or pretend he's defending.

OK OK. We get it. Quality wins.

Bench is not the bench that we will have during the playoffs. [not counting on Granger, rumored to possibly going to SAN AN, or Miami (most likely, since they play Indy for sure in playoffs) or Big Baby)

JJ makes a huge difference for this club. There is the fix for bench.

The Griz have a much much better bench than us. Big difference maker.

Doc needs to play Bullock more....

Yeah, Gasol's 7 points blows DJ's 5 points clean away.

We're honestly lucky to only be down 3, and quite frankly, we SHOULD be leading. I've seen the same patterns I'm seeing tonight against every good team after early December, so I'm expecting the same result. We'll try to play catchup for the entire half and **** the bed at the end. At this point, I need to actually be consistently proven wrong before I can believe in this team's ability to win big games.

I call like it like I see. DJ great rebounder. One on one defender? He sucks! He doesn't guard the paint. Any skilled big dominated him.

How many lay ups did they give up?? A lot!

How was the play by Johnson ( throw it against the back road without hitting the rim , then putting it in the Hoop , not passing to yourself which is traveling !! I thought it was ( you can't pass to yourself )

Johnson has a rad nickname too, "Bloodsport", his family is all martial artists. He's a got second degree belt and has done competitive kickboxing and MMA. He's having a good year, we're hardly the only team he's done well against.

Green and Turkolgu were bad. Hopefully in second half we see Bullock instead of Green. Maybe do a three forward rotation of Blake/Barnes/Dudley, Barnes/Dudley were ok together when Griffin went out.

To be fair, I don't think Gasol is playing tonight. Very Happy

Serious though, he barely played in the first half.

Cleepers he's talking about help D. DJ is terrible at helping out and gives up a fuckton of buckets at the rim that way.

It has been done before. I believe that Vince Carter did it a while ago.

Chris Paul needs to be Chris Paul in the 2nd half. We need meaningful points from him.

He didn't pass it to himself. I'll let you figure why. Very Happy

Still a unable game tho.

I'm really just waiting for this team to be fully healthy. I think all these injuries may be a blessing in disguise.

We will be pretty healthy come playoff.

We have to win this game first

Blake cannot let Johnson punk him. Demoralize him.

His and Koufos' minutes and production combined equal DJ's exactly. I don't see how DJ's getting schooled by "centers with a brain".

Tracy McGrady too, also Kobe. Lebron tried once and traveled.

You can pass off the backboard, maybe not in street ball, but in real games. It is a shot, offensive rebound and put back really, or the backboard passed to you, lol. I thought Johnson might have traveled before he tossed the ball though.

James Johnson is a D-Leahue cal up who has been killing it all year long. One of the big surprises of the year. His play wasn't passing to himself bc it hit the backboard. Were only down by 3... when did all of clipper nation become so pessimistic?

C'mon we're only down by 3 after all of that crazyness!! Lets get some defensive stops and convert to get that run..

Zach Randolph is looking old. Not sure if he's coming off injury, but he looks a few steps slower than usual.

Choking in every big game tends to inspire pessimism.

We're "only down 3" right now but I fully expect the team to wilt at some point in the second half and concede. It's just what they do in big games.

The OKC thunder got embarrassed yesterday and nobody gives a damn.

The Grizzlies are up 3 at the half and everyone losses their mind!

OKC is first in the West and wins most of their big games - the Heat are just their worst possible matchup. We choke in damn near EVERY big game. There's no comparison.

Barnes is done.

Barnes can't finish for crap, loves chucking 3s and his defense has been mediocre. Not sure what he is good for anymore. Seems like a poor man's Josh Smith at this point without the finishing ability or defense.

This half is playing out so predictably. This is WHY the score at the half was deceptive. It's the same **** every time.

Wow. Don't care what the score is this is pathetic. Lol at us having shooters. Redick and who else?

Honestly, I'm not seeing what the homers are seeing that makes them think we're getting out of the first round. I wish I could live in the world of denial, but this team just isn't built for the playoffs and it's beyond obvious.

First time in months Griffin reverts to passive. Wake the hell up!
