Well, this loss has been on the cards for the last week or so with the way we've been playing.
On the positive side, after the Memphis loss I hoped for a 12-3 or 13-2 run before we headed into Dallas and the Clips pulled it off, so I'll cut them some slack for the loss. But on the negative side, we're going to have to see a complete shift in attitude from top to bottom (including Doc) in order to come home with a positive record from this trip. I can't see why he didn't try Hollins on Ajinca or even give the rookie a shot at Miller last night. Turkoglu has been awful lately. He shouldn't be getting minutes.
It sucks that we have to go into Dallas on the back-end while they're streaking, but that's the NBA. It's a huge test for the lads. If we can win tonight, we can put last night to bed. And Saturday's game is obviously huge too... but then it was always going to be.
CP3 going 0-12 is quite the anomaly. There's a good reason they keep averages and I expect him to bounce back soon. I just don't like when he gets timid about shooting his elbow-jumper when a few don't fall. It f*cks up the whole offense and we end up taking a worse shot late in the clock.
Anyway, this is what sports are all about... building strength and character through adversity.
