No miracle. Clippers squandered this game with their poor free throw shooting. How disappointing.

Seriously though, we got exposed. I don't know what happened to Blake, but he looked like last year's version. Hopefully this is just a bad game... And rebounding, rebounding, rebounding...

They had him in the top 10, but I never thought I would say this but DJ is overrated. Even people on this board think he's a top 10 center when that is far from the truth

We just played against a fully healthy team who has been on a tear as of late. CP3 just came back from injury, JJ is out; and if you don't think JJ is huge for our offense then you don't watch the game.

I must be on the same drug as he because all I see is a team that is facing adversity and is determined to come out successful. Tonight we were not, but it's good to know that we'll keep fighting. After OKC/HOU we have such a slack schedule that'll let us get our rhythm going into the playoffs. I will personally call you out after we make it past the first round in the playoffs. Stop being so doom and gloom, it's a regular season game.

Lakers fan here watching the Clippers. Of course, as I said, I want an L.A. team to be in the Finals -- thus I want the Clippers to win big, especially in the post season. (The Clippers had better eat up Houston in the playoffs, Period.)

But, watching this game against Memphis, it appears to me the Clippers are one player short of a title run. Crawford is not the Crawford of last year. Last year, that three goes down. Griffin is clearly the second best player in the NBA after LeBron. But he needs one more star quality baller to make the requisite "Big Three" that NBA Championship teams need.

If the Clippers cannot pick up that missing player, then DeAndre has to be better than even D12. He can be. So it is up to Doc to get him there.

If DeAndre makes that leap, then you have the needed "Big Three." To me, he is the missing ingredient.

Thoughts?

At least Doc has gotten DJ's trade value up a bit, he shouldn't as difficult to trade him than last year. We need a real center who can actually play the position.

I wouldn't take too much from these loses. We are a completely different team when Redick is playing. We definitely won't be out scored by their bench. I HATE when they lose, but we have to wait until they are fully healthy in order for is to criticize the Clippers. I'm still looking fwd to the playoffs when we have a healthy team. I hate this little downfall we've been on as of late, but we'll get better

Our free throw shooting,bench,and bigs boxing out has been horrendous.I think we need to move Crawford back to the bench because our bench has been killing us and our starters have been having to play catch up.Move Willie,Bullock,or sign someone to start but we need Crawford coming off the bench.Collison can't do it all himself.

We also need to sign another big.Looks like we are waiting for Monday to see if Big Baby is going to join us but we need to get him or Ivan asap because Blake and DJ are playing heavy minutes and Hedo and Hollins aren't cutting it.Tough loss and a big game against Thunder coming up.

Yes, same guy who actually Defended the whole game (aside the foul plague 2nd). Same guy who became our defensive anchor in 4th quarter. Same guy who said it last game that game said he needed to be better on D and he was. Yeah that Blake of 18 &n 8.

AM really mad a this Game all i can say is if they can't beat Memphis they aren't going anywhere. they lost to the Spurs without Tony Parker and other injury players. they are going to lose to OKC too so yeah. if we don't get G. Davis we are not going far in the playoff. he can maybe defend Randolph and set screens. He is not the solution but he can help the bench out. Why is Dudley still there??? we could have traded him for a second rounder lol jk. Blake was good in the 1st Q. and our free throw was horrible. am just disappointed

Good fight back in this game. Sadly we could not get the W. Rebounding and Defense will be and is this teams achilles heel. DJs next step in his improvement is too stop ball-watching. As soon as the ball goes up Find the nearest body and BOX HIM OUT. If someone else's man gets the board it is their fault not yours.

Blake Griffin has been phenomenal , but his "partner in crime" isn't performing like the star he is supposed to be. It is like the roles reversed. Blake coming up big with FTs and Scoring and getting steals ( would have been one if DJ would have boxed out ) and Chris is shrinking under pressure, missing easy shots, and missing FTs down the stretch.

Dudley a no show , but did some aggression from him. Barnes okay game caught sleeping and slipping on D several times. Reggie hard to judge , but even his miss looked good. Honestly if Granger comes in here and can preform and close games for us I wouldn't mind putting both Barnes and Dudley in the Dog House. Glen Davis could play a big part. With Granger because of his size you can switch things late in games.

Conclusion: Bench lost us the game. I mean how many point did we get from them as a whole? 7? ONLY SEVEN POINTS FROM OUR BENCH AS A WHOLE? Also only 3 rebounds from the bench and 1 assist. Ewww terrible numbers from a bench that was Top 3 in the league. BENCH KILLED US.

Clippers LTBers -- quit whining. You got a great team with the second best player in the NBA to watch. Try being a Lakers fan for a night. You will be crying like Oscar Pistorius if you had to endure my group of bums. Plus you have a real coach.

I am counting on you to bit**slap D12 and the Rockets in the playoffs.

You win some, you loose some, 73% FT shooting would have won this game, so, what is there to really complain about?

Ball movement isn't anywhere close to the same without Redick because Crawford doesn't play in constant motion. The bench has no offensive system and that won't work against a team like Memphis whose bench actually even has some of their better defenders. Their bench can defend.

Grizzlies going under the screens helped to take away some options. One of the best ways to guard Zach is actually to blitz him while he's making his move like Zach did, that was what the Spurs did. Double him on the move and he doesn't have the vision to really make good plays against that kind of defense.

I'm not really for going wild after every loss as if this team is supposed to win every game, I don't know, it's weird to me.

Western conference finals? We are only 3 up in loss column from being out of playoffs. Tough 2 weeks coming, could drop out of playoffs by then. West is tough.

Glad people now realizing CP is good but not fantastic. Last year when people mentioned that they got killed on this board.

CP is quite fantastic, maybe his first few games clouded then true perspective of his struggles with his shoulder, but to use a singular game to determine anything just doesn't make sense.

Meh, I've seen that before, just can't take too much out of singular games. I'm more worried about patterns of play. Not helping the helper here and there, some communication break downs, giving up too many offensive rebounds.

The important game stuff, meh, sure they would be great to win, but it is the consistency and sticking to the system and rotations and communication that will carry you through the playoffs, not whether you won or lost important games I the regular season.

We'll see what roster changes are made as the season progresses and how the team integrates them. I haven't thought the team had everything it needed for a championship run since we made all our signings in summer because I have said since day 1 that defense will be the biggest factor. If the Clippers can defend at an elite level, they have the individual talent and now, even the system to be able to score enough to win. They don't need to go Phoenix Suns on anyone, they just he's their offense to be more effective than the opposition.

"Clippers LTBers" ...haha!

I've seen your stuff on LTB and a realistic laker fan is a rare thing, so welcome.

You're right that we're one guy short of being great... that guy has been JJ Redick when he's been healthy. Blake has been getting smothered by smart defenses and our other "shooters" just can't make teams pay.

His absence also take's Crawford's production away from the bench, which is why our bench looks so putrid right now. Hopefully we'll pick up one or two guys who can score the ball and fulfill your wish of spanking the Rockets. To be honest, I fancy them or Portland in round 1 more than the dubs or Suns... the 4 seed might actually be our best option, as the 3 would put us against worse matchups if it's GSW or PHX.

What a crap game. Our defense and offense looked horrible. I can't understand why Chris and Blake don't run the p&r more often. For such a great floor general Chris really can lead to a stagnant offense.

Man, Paul is really hesitant taking shots, especially the Spurs game. I don't know if his shoulder is still bothering him, or there's a lack of confidence. If he's injured, then he should rest, because not wanting to shoot is hurting the team.
