"Back spasms, day-to-day," coach Doc Rivers said. "I'm sure they're going to do whatever they do with X-rays and all that stuff, so we'll see." Griffin is averaging 25.7 points and 10.0 rebounds during a season series in which Los Angeles (52-22) has taken the first three matchups by a combined 10 points. Love has also displayed his all-around talent for the Timberwolves (36-36), averaging 26.0 points, 16.7 rebounds and 7.0 assists in those games. The Minnesota star struggled in Sunday's 114-99 loss at Brooklyn. He finished with just 14 points and nine rebounds for the Timberwolves, shooting 5 of 14 and saying....

Interesting time to play the TWolves with Blake probably out. Who's goning to start at the 4 spot............... BB? Maybe that's why he got moody on Sat, when Blake went out he maybe thought "now's my chance to get some serious minutes". But when it didn't pan out that way he chucked his toys out of the pram.

Anyhow how will Doc play it, who will guard Love?

Love plays on the perimeter so much Dudley might be a better choice to defend him. Doc had dropped Dudley from the rotation after his back spasms, but he's gone back to giving him PF minutes the last couple games.

Think Duds may start at 4 has better mobility to stick with Love inside and out.

Repped High Quality Post

It's what he does... mostly at the expense of his teammates. I'd much rather give Dudley a shot at him than the alternatives... Baby? Turk? Yeah, they'll shut him down for sure. roll

Exactly. Dudley's offense has been lacking, but his defense is still there for the most part. Plus, I trust him over Baby or Turk.

Repped.

I say we let Blake play for about 15 minutes and just feed him the ball the entire time he's out there. Hopefully he'll get about 8-10 pts and we can just rest him the remainder of the game.

Ralph just twitted that Jamal is doubtful because of calf and Blake is still 50/50.

Jamal out - ugh. This calf thing is a real issue obviously why do they bother bringing him back at all?

Not Calf. Sore Achilles. Precautionary.

I say rest Griffin.

Start Turk or Big Baby because Turk may be a better guard for Kevin Love as far as staying with him. But Baby may keep Love off the boards

Does this mean an Achilles tear is inevitable? I'm actually asking what does a tight Achilles mean?

This will be a tough one , but I am not counting this as a loss just yet. Without Hopefully Griffin. He needs to rest. Baby might start , but Doc will probably play Duds....

Why is Jamal out? Just for rest or is he sore from an injury?

I think Doc is just resting players for the PO's...

Anyways I'm excited to see what Cp3 does without Blake.

Clippers look good. Dudley just needs to get a body on Love , but other than that we look good

Against certain sized PF's Dudley has the best defensive fundamentals and he won't get blown by like he can at the wing positions. If the guy is too big though, then there's only so much he can do

Need to slow down the game. Too many sloppy passes and turnovers.

I think Dudley is like Dejuan Summers. Too Slow for SF , Too Small for Pf. It was like he was stuck between a rock and a hard place, its hard for Duds. I think he is 4

To be fair the set shot he made effortlessly, the other 2 misses he was trying to create a shot late in the shot clock, and he is not good at that
