I don't think I've seen this much complaining after a win lol.

Yeah, it's bad Blake lost his cool and fouled out, and it isn't good the Suns managed to pull it back pretty close in the final minutes. What matters though is that the Clippers got it done in the end yet again, unlike my Blazers.

Also hope there aren't bogus calls against Blake again in the Warriors game but who knows with nba refs.

21 TO's and loose defense in the late 2nd half made it a little closer then it should have been.

Rockets! With a win it brings the Thunder closer to us in the Standings with half a game separation from us.

I rather Blake hold out on knocking someone out aka suspension for Ibaka.

Enough with the "Blake lost his cool" narrative. Those were bogus calls on him, period. If anyone lost their composure, it was the refs.

Repped High Quality Post

If we get payback on GS and blow them out, all will be forgotten. Still pissed at how Tucker situation went down but... teams that keep their composure win. So we need to learn that.

Good win, not the best due to too many turnovers and the offense stalling here and there. But a quality win against a tough opponent for sure. Blake Griffin just tore it up- that may have been the most jumpers Blake has ever hit in a game. What a job by Blake. CP was a little off but was a pest on D, got some big rebounds and made that big bank shot jumper that helped to seal the deal. Collison another good game hitting jumpers and getting layups. DJ had a nice one as well guarding the paint & rebounding. Barnes was a bit off, but made some big shots & FT's. That 3 at the end of the third Q turned out to be HUGE.

Nice to see Granger have another solid performance as he seems to be getting into a groove. The rest of the bench was so-so as Willie had a rough night & Turkoglu had a few too many TO's.

Another revenge game coming up vs the Warriors. Certainly you want the Clippers to be a little sharper for that one.

We need to clean this up asap Blake needs to calm it down and stop the cross court and shots in traffic.

Ok I'm sorry but those last fouls on blake were offensive fouls, especially the last one. That wasn't the refs screwing him. He is the best player and we need him down the stretch, can't have him fouling out. It really seemed he just kicked into turbo gear.

On a side note. Memphis twitting a big thank you to LAC in the form of a zbo ass whipping and a foot to the face. Other I'll advice things like vomiting and go grizzlies.

The last one looked like an offensive foul, but the foul Frye 'drew' was a heat of the moment, "let's not let this get out of hand" call y the refs. Lowering the head like that to clear space is classic Kobe, I doubt he's EVER got whistled for it.

Not getting why Doc is giving DNP to Bullock these past two games his size at the two could of been useful.

The problem is blake has tried at a few times and has always been whistled. I was just waiting for the whistle. He shouldn't try that.

As one who lived through the Lakers most recent three years Finals run, they did the same infuriating crap the Clippers are now doing. They used to build up twenty point leads and win by one to seven points.

I have a theory on that. Except for the occasional statement or revenge game (the Clips 48 point win), the REALLY good teams throttle it down and tend to win by four - six points. It is simply too much effort to keep the twenty point lead until the end.

This is a typical win of a Finals-bound team.

I agree that the fifth was bogus. The 6th I've seen called both ways, mostly against us when our guy is set but doesn't get hit square in the chest. Not upset about that though, what upset me was how Blake lost interest and started cruisig when we got the big lead.

I swear, Jerry Stackhouse is an idiot. He was saying that Blake still needs maturing to do within that skirmish with Tucker. What does he expect him to do???

I agree on first foul. Second was bogus to me. Defender was still sliding over when Blake was airborne.

Bright spot of GSW game is that the Warriors will be on a back to back.

So happy to see Granger play well tonight. He's going to be our X-factor this season.

Blake's rebounding numbers should go up in the playoffs since playing Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu together doesn't not work well, the Clippers will have to either have DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin on the court at all time.

Since Davis and Turk are not very good rebounders Blake will have to be the one going for the rebound and taking less outside shots. But Blake does need to do a better job of grabbing the defensive rebounds.

I don't know why they didn't give the ball to Blake as much in the 2nd half. Blake should have attempted 25 shots at the very least. I honestly thought he would get to 50. Gotta cut down on TO's. We need Jamal back ASAP. Dragic is good. Very good. 8 game win streak and still in 4th place. Shyt!! the west is loaded!

The best part of the game was Blake paying homage to the OG mailman.

LETS GO FOR 9 STRAIGHT TOMORROW!!!

Can't wait to beat the Warriors tomorrow night. I hope we can run them off the court by jumping on them early. We just got revenge on the Suns (twice), now it's the Warriors turn.
