Yea, I'm not saying Jamal is above criticizing btw, and he can get a little erratic, but he's playing well tonight and has picked it up since that awful stretch.

Start the 2nd half the way we started the first, and we'll get a scare in them and take them out of their game.

They made Jamal recount the coaches again, lol.

BTW guys please cut it out with the GTFO & STFU's. Thanks in advance.

I am hoping that Bullock takes the minutes dudley would have gotten this game..

Maybe I heard wrong but Hubbie said that that would be called either way! (The 4 point play)

Good half. Props to Jamal. This is the type of play we need from Barnes. Nothing complicated, just hitting open shots in rhythm. Our bench stinks.

So glad Matt is having a great game. His timely 3s have been what the Doc ordered!

The league should really modify the intentional foul w/o the ball rule. Sheeshhh!

No foul trouble so far... we need to come out going at Ibaka and Sefalosha.

To be fair Jamal is the only player that you love to have but than sometimes just hate to have.. When he is balling he is irreplaceable.. When he is not he is just absolutely hard to watch..

Why is Barnes playing so well the last two games? His wife told him she was not leaving LA so step it up.

He didn't shoot during December well but he hardly was atrocious in his play overall

He was brought here to be our sixth man. he's won the 6th man award with another team. That's been his most successful role as player. "role" being the operative word. Look, Maybe I was a bit harsh about him not complimenting the team so I'll say I picked the wrong choice of words. as far as saying he's a "starting" SG who happens to come off the bench, all indicators (his role over the years) says otherwise.

Feeling you deserve a starters spot doesn't make you a starter. You are what you are. And based on his off-season tweets, I disagree he is willing to come off the bench. Maybe Doc convinced him but he wasn't initially willing to come off the bench this season.

Been playing better than Dudley and previously Barnes and Turkoglu and Hollins and Jamison. He is our 4th best player. Imagine if we sign Granger ,who lives in LA, Matt goes to the bench with....

ESPN slurps OKC so freaking much. We're winning, but they show all Thunder highlights and then say "oh, we need to get a Clippers highlight in there somewhere."

Didn't shoot well is a massive understatement and yes he was atrocious. His only value is his scoring considering he is a defensive liability and often has tunnel vision.

That being said he is doing great right now and overall this season he has been doing fine.

Jamal Crawford has had more coaches than Jared Dudley has had decent games this season.

Bill Simmons is annoying. And that gal on the panel (don't know her name at the moment) is even more annoying. Wish we were listening to Ralph and Mike instead.

Clipper Joe, as far as I am concerned, ever player on this team is a role player. Some roles for players are more important. Jamal has one of the most important roles for this team. So yes. He is role player , but he is a VERY IMPORTANT ONE.

ESPN should fire whoever it was that had the "brilliant" idea that Simmons belongs on television.

I guess most analysts, players, and media are stretching the definition when they say "6th man role"

CP3 and BG are definitely not role players lol but maybe your definition of role player is totally different from mine.

It's just a terrible panel. Doug Collins' body-language screams "please give me a coaching job so I don't have to sit with these 3rd rate clowns just to get a paycheck".

LOL, me too!!! We would have heard a whole bunch of them in this game with Matt's much-needed threes.

He said the fouls could be called on either player, as in Ibaka or Sefalosha

Yeah, Doug has been the only one that has been fair. The rest of the panel sucks.

Even if we win by 20, the headline on espn.com will read "Thunder continue streak... win by -21"

The thunder only runs two plays! !! They work because of the ball movement. .. but TWO plays! I know Doc has to see that, can't wait see if we can shut it down.

MATT BARNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...... thinking ahead. ... we definitely need to get some perimeter defense before the playoffs. ... in doc we trust!

Under what standard is he is a defensive liability because the numbers don't say so.

He played well in November then JJ went down and he was coming off the bench with Collison then he got inserted into the lineup during what so happen to be the longest road trip of the season. It wasn't 20 games it was about 14 or so games where he didn't shoot well at all. The facts are that Jamal has been playing well since the new year which next weekend will be 2 month ago and yet people are still talking about a stretch of games in early December even after a hot start in November as a reason to still be ragging on him

This was one of BGs worst 1st half in a long time and he has 11 points, 5 rebounds, 1 block, and 4 assists.

Since we've torched them on the fastbreak, Brooks will be encouraging transition defense. Might be worth leaving a guy forward to try to grab for offensive boards.

Good idea, instead of trying to move the ball around or get inside, let's chuck two 3's to star the half.

Terrible start to the second half. Guys looking tentative- gotta wake up right now. Good time out by Doc Rivers.
