Holy mackerel. LOL Teague made the second free throw and spoiled the plan for a quick rebound. 1.2 seconds left for Clips.

Blake's free throws have been terrible lately and it is frustrating. Needs to get back in with bob thate.

Won't lie, Blake really needs to get rid off the hitch in his free throws. It's probably at least half the reason why he's in the slump he's in.

I got so scared they were going to call a loose ball foul on Barnes.

Stupidly close game, but this isn't the same Atlanta team that's lost six in a row, they were playing some damn confident basketball and hitting some shitty-ass shots. Refereeing on our home court is just terrible, and while Blake had a high scoring affair, he definently needs to shape up for monday.

That was hideously ugly. Glad we escaped with the win, but play like that against Phoenix on Monday and we will be blown out.

Clippers player of the game: Jeff Teague. Clutch free throw shooter.

Clippers made this so much harder than necessary with their awful turnovers and unclutch free throw shooting by Blake. But a win is a win. We'll take a win anyway, lol.

One hell of an ugly win, but a win is a win. We have the exact same record as last years team after 64 games.

Don't feel good about this one - this was a sour win. I haven't seen them look this bad in a while. Troubling trends, turnovers, poor free throw shooting the worst things. I thought they played poorly on Thursday too, but he lakers are so bad it didn't matter.

Nothing to worry about. We've won our last 2 games by an average of 24.5 points. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_16

Ugly win Doc needs to trust the bench more right now they are playing better overall D. Hollins should be getting a couple more minutes from Hedo because we needed size in the fourth but the bench D was great.

Yes we won, but this game indicates the troubles the Clips will need to overcome in the playoffs.

First, although DJ's free throws are improving, Doc still thinks it's a liability, taking him out of the game with 3 minutes left.

Second, as of now, Blake still can't be the go to guy during clutch situations. He made some important baskets late today, but they were mostly after 1 or 2 initial misses. You can't seriously expect him to get 1-2 rebounds off his own missed shots every time.

Anyways, a win's a win. Games like this needs to happen for a team to remain focused and improve.

Felt like this game would of been easier if Paul would of taken like high 20's shots. Blake struggling so hard with the ball felt like we were beating a dead horse or hoping Barnes would make big plays. Paul better be aggressive next game because Dragic will go at him looking to rebound off the last loss.

First time in a while Doc pulled DJ out of the fear of the hack I guess this game was because of momentum. We were already slipping and hacking us to death would of made it worse. Think any signs of a push Doc keeps him in and sees how he does at the line.

This. Last few games, Blake seemed to be forcing himself. He's lacked some fluidity in his motions.

17 turnovers from the starters and one from the bench (hedo last play) the offense has to adjust. Paul needs to quarterback the offense and allow Blake to work on quick touches. I think teams have caught on to Blake running the offense on a 50/50 level and we should pull back some. This also means limiting the leak outs.

Perhaps Blake is just putting too much pressure on himself and we're expecting a whole lot more from him as fans. He's human, lol. He'll be back to February form. He has his own standards. He did score 27 points and made some crucial plays (except the last free throws, lol).

Whew this got really scary at the end, but the Clippers were fortunate that Teague missed that FT. Not exactly the sharpest game by the Clippers, but their terrific play on both ends in the third quarter and early 4th gave them just enough margin for the win. Blake had 27, but certainly not one of his best games as he had too many turnovers & missed FT's. Still a good game overall by Griffin considering his scoring, dishing & of course some big time rebounding down the stretch.

Chris Paul had an excellent game on both ends- he hit his jumpers & was always there at the right spots defensively. Collison had a good game on offense, but did get lost a couple times guarding Korver. DeAndre Jordan another nice job inside with quite a few intimations & blocks. Barnes was a bit hot and cold this game, and had a few too many turnovers.

Good to see Granger step up and hit some shots that remind of JJ Redick. Jamal gave it a go, but certainly looked liked a player who hasn't played in 10 days. Willie was solid out there, and Hollins was actually pretty good in the few minutes he played.

So the home team certainly dodged a bullet tonight. So many turnovers like tonight for the Clippers will not work vs the Suns, however, so the guys will have to be sharper come Monday.

At least they know that there is no easy game, everynight they have to work hard, every win counts going to playoff. but either 1 point game or 48 points win, it doesn't matter a win is a win.

Hopefully a scare like this will get them back to playing top-notch basketball. Finishing the season 16-2 doesn't seem out of reach.

This was a good win against a Hawks team we have struggled against for quite some time. I wasn't happy with the way we played tonight, but at this point I am thankful for any win. As I look at the standings we aren't far from the top 3 positions, but the problem is Houston, San Antonio, and OKC are all playing well enough to fend us off. I think for now the more realistic thing for us to expect is to simply protect our 4th seed standing and hope that Redick and Crawford are 100% by the start of the playoffs. If that happens seeding won't matter. I remember watching this team at 100% on 10/31 against the Warriors, and what I saw blew me away. I think when healthy and motivated this team won't need any home court advantage

Fine win for the Good Guys (Clippers). Disconcerting that Blake missed two free throws down the stretch. Great game for "DANNY"!

this is the biggest thing to look forward to every game. ideally you want

Granger to use this time to improve his shot.if he manages to do this we will be in a very good position. Reddick and Crawford should be back by playoff time, and that means that Granger can slide back at the small forward position and backup Barnes. potentially we could have the best wings in the entire league once we get everyone back
