There coming back. Memphis is so close to 6th spot. They need to win this, for confidences and blakes pride. If we want to win blake has to zach, its that simple. He needs to play defense. Paul needs to kill conley. Paul should get like 20 points each game. I'm the biggest cp3 fan, since wake forest. I'm sure he can do it. DJ needs to stop Marc. Marc killed us last season. So really blake and Dj are the xfactors. If they don't play good, we lose. 😪 please make me happy clips

Agree the xfactor to beat Memphis is on Blake and DJ , is all about defense.

Dj is horrible against Memphis. Marc is his worst nightmare

They did before. The real question should be, can the clippers stay healthy against Memphis thug ball

Honestly and I hate to say this,but I do not think we hold onto the 3 spot anyway. If the last 4 games are an indicator, I think we slip pretty far down the ladder. I know we make the playoffs, but I think we slip behind GS with the way we are going so we should be in the bottom with the teams most here do not want to play. We will get OKC or someone like that caliber.

And I agree with JARCA. Staying healthy against that team is really tough for a non-fighting team as we have,we just don't want to brawl first and pay basketball 2nd as the Jizzlies do.

Exactly. We'd beat them, but at what cost?

Ok I'm the least optimistic fan but even I say no way golden state wins the division!

@FightOnRon, what happened? I know they haven't been playing that good lately, but I'm sure they were floating against what was supposed to be crap teams. NO just happened to be playing better ball then a eastern conference loser team, and Clips were trying to mail it in.

I agree that they should be playing with more urgency. The cushion they have is probably a bad thing in terms of playing with urgency.

I don't think we'll fall off that far. In fact I don't see us falling out of 3, catching up to 2 is probably out of reach now. Hopefully we have a good game against Dallas tonight, because if we don't I'll probably be joining your sentiments.

No, JQuick is the least optimistic fan

Well I'm assuming this year there won't be non-existent defense for 4 straight games like last season, so that should equal winning

Last year when my Dodgers were cleaning everyone's clocks I had a friend (of course a Giants fan) ask me if I was afraid my team was peaking too early. I told him "well I wasn't until now". If you watch baseball you would have seen the leagues 2nd highest payroll team fold like a kite in a high win in the second round. Guess they did peak early.

Someone put the same bug in my ear about our Clippers,they had one heck of a run going and someone asked me that,then all of a sudden we turn into a .500 team. I hope I am just a little emotional and seeing things the wrong way. So far tonight they seemed to have come to play. Right now we are having the fight with Marion and Barnes. I bet it doesn't go our way

I just wanted to note that if we played D the same way Dallas played Blake this game, we would absolutely destroy Memphis' Z.bo and or Marc.

This thread is brought to you by people who can't count. The Count from Sesame Street would be so disappointed.

Look at each game left, for each team. Look at the current records. Count them all up. Be as conservative or liberal as you like. Some of the stuff said in this thread just isn't going to happen.

Nah, Ron... you (or anybody else) can't call us a .500 team based on a 4-game stretch. We've ripped off 14 of our last 16, which is 87.5% by my math.

Truth is, at this point in the season we are what our record says we are... which is a .700 regular season team. We've been playing down to lesser teams, but we won't be seeing them in the playoffs.

There's 9 games left and the Clippers have a 6 game lead on the Warriors. So the Warriors would have to win all their remaining games and the Clippers only win 4 of their last 9. It would be a collapse of historic proportions, but I really don't see it as a likely scenario.

Question is, can the Grizz actually win a game against the Clippers in the playoffs this year.

After last night I would like to remove my previous posts. Our team is back. My math skills are scewed but you have to remember I was in school before even calculators existed (look up slide rules with google and see what we had to use!).

Clips need to figure out how to create one banner that will reflect Pacific Division winners for two years in a row and at least hang it up with he pictures of the guys that are covering the Fakers banners. Since they don't want a permanent one they could make a removable one for us to look at.

I think 0 for 12 night from CP shook a lot of us. That was definitely out of the norm, so I think it shocked some (I was shocked). I know if he had another night like that there are probably some that would want him traded the next season, just kidding hopefully.

I don't know about you guys I have really high hopes for this team, and think that a championship is a very realistic probability. With that said whenever we see in any kinks in the armor I think it's human nature to try to prepare for the letdown. Well hopefully we get a title, I think that would be the best thing to get for Ralph and every Clipper fan (new Clipper fans aren't as deserving but you get to come along for the ride anyways) that has struggled through years, been teased with the Miles Livingston Odoms of the world, been mocked and apologized to for being a loyal fan.

Anyways, yes The Clippers can beat the McGriddles. I'm hoping for us to actually sweep them in the first round, now that would be a statement.

I re-read that chart and you know what the really cool part is,100% for the Fakers taking a seat! (not that there is a surprise in that)
