So then you continue to ignore the impact of the loss of Bogut. It is not I who makes no sense.

Regarding, Doc Rivers, of course it is on his mind. Why did he put the pictures over the Lakers Banners? Its that same thinking that led to the Clips no longer sharing chapel with the Warriors. He knows. He knows.

don't Warrior fans have their own boards to play with rather then coming here?

Not to appear ungrateful for your compliment, but Tony Brothers has been a thorn in the Warriors side for a long time, and the crew that is coming in favors home cookin'. Mott in particular has a +70% home winning percentage in the games he calls. The percentages speak for themselves, fellas.

But those are cards dealt, and I'm sure the Warriors will confront the challenge with valor and class as always.

Yes, but I couldn't resist the low hanging fruit found here. Smile

I think that's more of a case of our team being disgusted at the hypocrisy a so-called minister promising fidelity to his wife in front of his god and congregation, then poking strippers on the side.

There's your "low-hanging fruit".

Well, in Clown Jackson's defense, his wife does look like Derek Fisher.

I would have to concede your point were it not for the fact that Donald "Slumlord" Sterling is the Clipper's owner. And that, by the way, is the reason Lob City will be short lived. This guy will find a way to blow it.

Yeah, but Donald doesn't pretend to be a holy man, does he? He's not made the claim that he is teaching our team "not only to be better basketball players, but better men".

The 10 commandments don't mention anything about being a bad landlord (not that DTS is bound by them as is a "preacher"), but I seem to remember a little something about committing adultery and taking the lord thy god's name in vain.

When Sterling opens up a church, then you can criticize.

Must win. If we lose tonight the series is pretty much over. We can't just win here though. To regain momentum we need to win at LEAST 1 of the next 2 at Oracle. If we win 3 in a row, we pretty much have it.

I say we get 3 in a row, if not all 4. They might have just lit the fire they didn't want to light. I see everybody on a mission the rest of the way.

So a preacher who cheats on his wife is worse than a racist who discriminates against his tenant and employees? Jackson made a bad mistake, but among his peers, players, and others in the Association he enjoys a good reputation. Sterling? One of the worst reputations of any owner in sports. Low hanging fruit, indeed.

Hey guys. Just wondered, if anybody of you knows a website where i can stream the match, i would be very thankful if you would post it. Good quality would be predicated.

Thanks guys!

Sterling doesn't pretend to be a holy man. He also doesn't pretend to be a coach at one place, then try and interview for another vacancy Smile

Repped High Quality Post

Yes, I'd argue that a man who abuses his spouse's spiritual beliefs is worse than a simple racist. I highly doubt that "Love, honor and cherish" are words in any of his tenants' leases.

You do know that Jackass wasn't a preacher before he met his wife, right? She was a devoutly religious woman who refused his advances until he agreed to live according to Christian doctrine. He lied. Once they were married, he went out prowling for some strange, and when he got caught in his own trap by sending out dick-pics to some skank he went running to the feds.

He has also spoken out very vociferously against gay marriage, so while it's fine for him to promise fidelity in front of his wife, family, friends and god - then willfully break that promise - apparently, others are not permitted to make and keep the same promise to their loved ones.

Once again, unless Donald Sterling starts telling others how to live their lives, Jackson is a bigger piece of sh!t than he will ever be.

Found this gem (condensed by another blogger), and it explains how important the loss of Bogut is to the Warriors in this series.

How much do the Dubs likely miss Bogut in this series? From the Ball Don't Lie's series preview:

With Bogut on the floor, the Warriors outscored the Clippers by 17 points over 110 minutes in four meetings this season. Without him, L.A. was +20 in 82 minutes.

With Bogut on the floor, the Clippers scored an average of 105.7 points per 100 possessions, which would've ranked 10th in the NBA over the course of the full season. While that mark would be the envy of plenty of NBA teams - 20, according to my advanced math - it represented a steep drop-off from the Clippers' top-of-the-pops offensive efficiency of 109.4-per-100. When Bogut sat, the Clips shot right back up to their customary rate of scoring brilliance, pouring it in at a 109.3-per-100 rate.

With Bogut on the floor, the Clippers grabbed just 45.6 percent of available rebounds. When he sat, that number rose to 53.8 percent. To put that in perspective: when facing Bogut, the Clips rebounded like the dead-last-in-the-NBA Los Angeles Lakers, and when they didn't have to face him, they scarfed up caroms at a clip that would have been No. 1 with a bullet during the regular season, head and shoulders above the league-best Oklahoma City Thunder.

With Bogut on the floor, the Warriors were much better at defending L.A. without hacking, committing 46 personal fouls in 110 minutes. With Bogut on the bench, the Clippers drew 53 personal foul calls in 82 minutes, leading to an obscenely high free-throw rate that kept the Clipper offense humming along.

I would drop the link, but this site won't allow me to yet. You can find in "Ball Don't Lie" series in Yahoo sports.

This isn't a religious judgement forum, can we get back to basketball? They're both jerks, who cares.

Would have been a better series for everyone.

Like your handle by the way. They say that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. This leaves me a little confused. LOL.

Rick Blaine is polluting this site so I just added him to the ignore list, I suggest more of you do the same. Still upset about game 1. I was at the game and the crowd energy was actually there, we just couldn't get a consistent rhythm going with all the foul calls. Blake needs to play significant minutes for our offense to click. JJ redick was shooting well, I thought we should have got the ball to him more. I hope we will today, if he continues to shoot lights out. I think we will destroy them tonight!

All I can say about game 1 is that there is no way in hell that a players 3rd or 2nd in MVP voting should play 19 minutes in a playoff game because of foul trouble.

If those duds want Bogus for next year's postseason, they'd better sit his arse until late March. Dude is good for 30 games a year, tops.

It is possible if those were all legit fouls, but at least 2 of them weren't.

We played so terribly, lots of unforced turnovers and uncharacteristic missed fts, blake playing just 19 mins and still had lots of chances to win. We play our average game we would have won game 1. I believe that a lot of those things I mentioned above won't be the same in game 2, which is why I have great confidence in us winning tonight! Plus the reffing should be better.

Sterling, though detestable, doesn't play or coach or do anything other than sit in the crowd. Additionally, he's already all but handed the team off to his son-in-law, who's actually competent and not a horrible person. Next!

Also what I can take from game 1 is that Blake and DJ both made their free throws down the stretch

Anyone attending tonight's game....

PLEASE DO YOUR PART!!

we shouldn't need to have matt barnes reminding you guys to get loud when the opposing team is shooting free throws. We shouldn't need blake or glen davis to get us fired up. I know were LA but c'mon...ITS THE PLAYOFFS!!!

We all know about the environment that will be walking into for games 3 and 4 in Oakland.

So I'm begging you Clipper Nation... Be LOUD & ROWDY! Last couple years against Memphis were great.. not quite sure what happened?

Come on man...We both know you "real fans" were no where to be seen when Monta was running the show. Ya you had that playoff run with Baron but really that is it. As much as i hate the Lakers, I can clearly remember Kobe getting some of the loudest MVP chants in your arena.

Yes thanks! Only stating facts here - he hasn't been healthy in a single playoffs in three seasons.

I would have thought most people on this board would be aware that a ton of press came out discussing his hamstring injury and that I wasn't breaking any news.
