If you all were Mavs fans in 2011, you honestly all would've given up on your team after Game 3?

Outplayed in the fourth by a good margin.

Crawford was the biggest culprit in this loss. DJ was weak. Paul doesn't seem right, lacked aggression, and was off in the 4th. Crawford was big in a few ganmes last series, but he has negated that with two bad games this series. Too much tunnel vision and chucking.

This isn't the 2011 Mavs, it's an extremely flawed team that just doesn't match up as well as we hoped with OKC.

How come not more Collison on Westbrook? He is only Clip quick enough to check him a bit.

I am still watching. (Unlike the fans who left.) We should have won this game but the fix is in. It will be hard to beat the NBA/WWE MVP Kevin Durant.

You telling me the refs didn't give them eight points in the Clippers' house?

THE NBA IS OFFICIALLY THE WWE.

doc and his rotations either play Hollins with Davis or not without DJ. Ibaka open time after time and no reaction.

We got outrebounded by 11 and they shot 56% from the field...no duh we had a chance to lose....we need to watch the grizz series and see what they were doing cause our game plan now isn't working

Two laws broken....Lawlers Law and the 35-0 going into the 4th at home.

I was hoping those tickets I have for Sunday's game were going to be first for sweep and then a 3-1 lead .....now I am not sure but it could be the last game at Staples this season.

you can't only blame DJ, our perimeter players kept getting burned. DJ can't just play defense for the whole team. Blake needs to take some blame too.

True. Okc would be out in the first round if refs actually called a fair game.

I think we needed to win this and Game 4 to win the series. Winning another in OKC is going to be too much to ask in my opinion. I hope I'm wrong but OKC just looks too good right now.

Awful loss. OKC takes back home court advantage, if that really is an advantage at this point. This loss messes up our statistic of winning when leading at the end of the third.

I hope Clips win Game 4.

Jackson of OKC off the bench? Wow, that guy can play. OKC has better athletes than Clip. Need to get a bit younger with more athletes.

Yes it's not our offense that's the problem. Our defense is killing us.

That's easy to say now that we know how the 2011 Mavs turned out, but I distinctly remember people saying the Heat were guaranteed to win a championship because no team that had lost a Game 3 in the Finals after a 1-1 split had ever come back to win it all. They proved it wrong, and while I don't know if the Clippers can come back from this, it's better to keep things in perspective than overreact and say this is the series.

Weren't there some people here specifically saying to NOT put Collison on Westbrook?

Doc can't win, I swear.

All Doc said that we rather him take the 2 point attempt than someone else take a 3? Come on Doc...re think that one tomorrow OK...

DJ needs to man up against certain competition. That last series may have been a bit of a mirage and inflated our views of his progression. He has improved but still needs to get better and be more consistent against different opponents.

I left. And won't apologize for it. Game was over, they blew it and I wanted to beat the crowds. When it's done it's done. They didn't play well enough to deserve fans to stay till the bitter end

Have you not seen? Westbrook sits Collison down in a classroom and straight takes him to school.

Collison has been ineffective offensively. It's hard to have him out there on D when he contributes nothing on offense.

called it from the beginning, was never a fan of the baby acquisition, the guy has the vertical leap of a 5yo, no length against a long OKC team spells trouble, anyway we can trade for adams

Interesting that we get killed by the refs even at home. If we lose this series because of refball, I will not watch any more NBA games this year.

BG gets a bloody nose and a no call. Breathe on KD...

And maybe if Zebo had played game seven instead of being baited by Steve Adams into taking a swing at him game 6 ...

Our offense only had 6 turnovers which is great. But we lose the rebounding battle by 11 and we can't play defense.

Like I said, Curry is the bigger shooting threat but Westbrook has historically given Paul more fits on defense. He is stronger and more athletic and can be a handful, hamstring bad or not.

We need two more people to step up from the bench other than Crawford.. It's obvious Jareds a Dud. May as well go with Willie Green or come back to Grainger. Collison has to step up too.

And trend continues. Away team wins both games tonight.

Clippers need to fix the rebounds.

doc still experimenting with rotations during the POs, why anyone would play duds ahead of Granger is utterly beyond me

It's not over yet! If we lose game 4 it will definitely be over. I'm not confident we can win game 5 or 7 in okc though. If the refs call it even, we have a shot.

Granger is either cooked or his injury problems are too severe to be effective.

Honestly we got more calls in the 32nd half and they got more calls in the first half.

I don't know what spreads they were trying to cover.

Yup. Also very slow on defensive rotations for most of the game. That said, if JJ and Collison show up on offense it still could have been a different game.

its amazing really DJ tried everything to help whenever he could. He missed on some offensive boards but he got them back on the other end. How do you f***** let Ibaka get so many open jumpers when ESPN Clear as day replays show Griffin ball watching. He even let Caron get going not respecting his shot.

Doc killed us the most though ride your damn horses in the 4th. He gave OKC all the confidence back. Horrible rotations.

I have to chime in on this thread. I don't post very often but I am on every day. I must say I am glad I don't have to go into a fight with most of you guys. The level of negative posts after EVERY SINGLE bad thing that happens to this Clippers team is pretty silly!

7 game series, right??

I am upset after every Clippers lose and have not missed one game all year. Can we stop all the cry baby drama????

What's the point of spending all this energy on how the Clippers season is over before you even know it is.

I think that the Clippers can win against any team in the NBA when they are playing to their ability. Chill out and cheer for the Clips next game.......

Its not about total calls, it is the arc of the game. The refs actually orchestrate it like a conductor on the podium. Nosebleed and no call? That says it all.
