Tyreke Evans is so annoying. I mean he is so erratic but it goes in. The way they are setting screens it looks like they are moving all the time.

QUESTION! If you block a dunk. Is it a goaltend lol technically the ball is on the way down

Third bingo by Jamal. He's getting his groove back! And Big Baby just scored in the paint. Nice job, BB!

This is a dangerous time for all top seeds because you are playing teams who have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

At least Jamal seems to be getting back into rhythm.

And who is replaceable? Yeah not many teams have a guy that can shoot them in the lead except the Thunder. Durant can shoot you in Westbrook can shoot you out

I still believe the Clippers will win this game, but the Pelicans are posing a major challenge for them so far.

But that shows just how bad our bench has been because last year it seems like every night we had someone going off in addition to Crawford and Bledsoe but this year our bench players seem to think they are too good to come off the bench

All we're doing is chucking jumpers. Both CP3 and Blake are off and DJ is his usual lazy, low-IQ self. Honestly, we deserve to lose just to wake this team the hell up... sad that it has to happen right before playoff time when we SHOULD be rounding into form.

C'mon, Clips! Focus, get some stops, and cover this 4-point deficit and take the lead and hang on to it.

CP3 and Blake are playing some awful basketball right now. Hope we wake up in the 2nd half.

Denver - loss (but understandable)

Detroit - trash effort, only won because the Pistons suck

Milwaukee - trash effort, only won because the Bucks are tanking

New Orleans - horrible effort so far

Sorry, but while the streak was awesome and garnered well-deserved praise, the most recent stretch of play is concerning and worthy of critique. I tend to be more process-oriented than results-oriented as a fan, so while it was good to get the last two wins, the process to get them was very concerning.

Clippers are fortunate to only be down by 3 at the half. I'm sure Doc does his usual pep talk. I hope Clippers come out firing on all cylinders in the second half.

Blake and CP need to be more aggressive.

That's being purely results-oriented. Yes, we beat sucky teams that are either dysfunctional (Pistons) or tanking (Bucks). Doesn't mean the effort put forth in those games was anywhere near the level we need to be playing at headed into the postseason. We're playing the same way against the Pelicans, a far better team than Detroit or Milwaukee, and losing at the half. Imagine how bad we'd be blown out playing like this in the playoffs.

You can cling to the results without even considering the process if you want, but for me, when I see bad habits from earlier in the season reappearing on offense and the defense not looking so good for multiple consecutive games right before the playoffs, I start to worry that we peaked too soon.

Have You Seen Indiana? Miami? Thunder? Trailblazers? Top Teams collapsing at the end of the year. Now i wouldt say collapsing , but the Blazers are. The Clippers are not collapsing , but all these....

This is the norm for the Clippers in the 1st half of the games as they allow the opponents an average of 51.9 PTs (ranked 22nd). 2nd half the boys do much better allowing their opponents only 48.1. Not worried......yet, lol

Food For thought.. Every team has stretches where they play ugly games. The difference between the good and the bad?? One team loses 24 straight.. The other has won 13 out of 14..

Its not much to worry about. We will still take this game ugly or not we will still take care of business late.

Actually I think you are totally wrong. The ability to not be on your game and still win is a sign of a good team and all those games that you are downplaying would have been losses last year. the goal is not be at our best 3 weeks before the playoffs but to be at our best during the playoffs.

What I see is a team that wishes the season ended today because the playoffs are really the only way to wipe the taste of last years first round loss away.

That's all I care about and what really counts....results. You can light your hair on fire with the details if you want, which I believe you really enjoy doing anyway. Try the results it's a lot less stress. Very Happy

CP is 0-9. Yikes. I hope he shakes it off (whatever it is) and starts making some baskets.

This is why Blake is our best player and MVP. CP3 has way too many games like this over the course of any given season.
