If the nba has any ethics, they would favor us in game 6 and if there is a game 7 since they clearly favored OKC in game 5 and most of the series

We have clearly been the better team this series but are down 3-2 because of refs. We have faced more unfair unjustified adversity then any other team this whole playoffs. We deserve to win this series. Let's go clippers!!! We are one!!!

The final 4 teams aren't even set but the nba's Facebook page main photo has a player from OKC, SA, Indiana, and Miami. That's probably the 4 teams that they want in. F***. Let's overcome all this!

You know how the NBA didn't dine Doc right? They knew they were wrong. I fully believe we can win the next two games. I want to see Spurs-Clippers WCF Chris vs Tony Blake vs Duncan Bench vs Bench I....

We just need to get a W tonight. Don't care if we win by 40 or 1. And go back to OKC and try to play the game of our lives.

I am not impressed at all with OKC's mental toughness. They are a bunch of spoiled brats that don't realize how spoiled they are. If we jump on them early, have a few calls go our way, I could see them essentially giving up, thinking "Pfffff, just like we thought refs won't let us win this one, on to Game 7...."

No you want a blow out. #1 it sends a message that we were robbed last gm and #2 we rest our starters for gm 7 !! Go clippers

not sure about that. Looks like he may have used up his 1 good game per series in the last game. Hope you are right,though. Go Clips!

This is the Clippers best season overall. Clips are a much better team than OKC. Their team consists of 2 players (KD & RW), we have 5 super players (a team). CP3 is taking the blame for game 5, players say different. Prove him wrong. Starters and bench get that killer instinct, take pressure off him and prove it takes a team to win games not 2 players. Watching First Take on ESPN, question, is CP3 a super star? Stephen A. "yes, and Clips will win tonight". I say "hell yeah". Clippers let's take this to the next level.

Go Clippers.

I have a lot of confidence in Granger. My confidence is not particularly deserved, but it is there. He's got the talent, just needs to find his groove. Take any one of our starters, put them on the bench of an already championship caliber team, have them play their first minutes in the 2nd quarter and get pulled 4 minutes later, I don't think any of them would be all that impressive under those circumstances.

We need to adjust our D against Westbrook. He is getting to the lane way too easily. CP3 does a commendable job but asking him to guard him 1 on 1 is asking too much. We need to throw some hard doubles at him. We haven't been doubling too much this series in general and I think we should do more of that against their big 2. Make everyone else beat us. Westbrook single handedly kept them in their last game and so many of them via points in the paint. We can't allow that.

Paul has to handle the match up by refusing to let Westbrook to get clear by him. We can't rely on the bigs to save us especially when Davis is in.

You can not let Westbrook blow by and draw fouls on Davis.

No one can handle Westbrook one on one for an entire game, especially in the perimeter where he can explode either way to the basket. We just can't let this guy finish at the rim consistently with these high pct shots.

I'm fine with Westbrook getting to the rack all day long. The guy is the ultimate rope-a-dope. If he shares the ball, their team is incredibly good. Hopefully after we take this game, someone challenges Westbrook in the postgame, something along the lines of "I think Russ choked tonight, and I think he'll choke on Saturday". When Westbrook takes things personally, Thunder lose.

Let's Go Clippers! We just need to play like we have been. We can't let our last game dictate how we play tonight.

We are the better team.

Love this quote from Bill Simmons most recent article about OKCs window closing:

"We know they easily could have blown the Memphis series, and we know the bumbling officials saved their season Tuesday night."

I am not a big fan of the "5-on-5", but at least all 5 of them picked the clips to win...http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2014/story/_/page/5-on-5-140515/ los-angeles-clippers-stay-alive-game-6

I think we win tonight, and then Sunday will be a toss-up. The basketball gods will be on our side tonight, that is for damn sure.

That is all I want is not the clean drives to the rim. Recover on the pick and stay on his hip and force the jumper.

Westbrook has been a monster the entire series putting up Oscar Robertson numbers. Westbrook being aggressive also a reason we lost game 5. You do not want him getting to the basket because he gets our bigs in foul trouble and okc into the penalty.

Westbrook has been taking the blame for losses his entire career with kd whether it was his fault or not. He won't be rattled by comments Paul has to redeem himself and this series go at Westbrook.

Yes guys, yes, Clips didn't lose the game, the refs colluded against them from the beginning. From the onset when they tagged Ibaka with 2 fouls, and then 2 more not long after he came in, it was clear they were favoring the Thunder. Westbrook putting up those huge numbers- all refs. Clips should have had the ball, even though barnes fouled jackson, right? Its not like a single questionable call ever went the clippers' way. It all does make perfect sense.

We were up by 14 with 3 minutes to go though, we should be so lucky tonight or on Saturday. Westbrook taking 30 attempts puts us in a great spot to win.

Westbrook doesn't get rattled, but he does love trying to prove a point. If we say that he "choked", "we have no trouble containing him", or anything that lights a fire under him, he becomes a volume shooter - the opposite of what a PG should be. That's when we have our best shot.

Repped High Quality Post

No, you're right. Kevin Durant is not coddled by the refs. He doesn't get as many FT attempts as the ENTIRE opposing team either. He fouls out of games all the time as well. In fact, he's always in foul trouble, that's why his minutes are so limited on average.

Oh and I almost forgot...He never flops!!

I've never been more confident that the Clippers are going to win. We're grabbing this win and forcing a game 7. No more talking about game 5. It just makes us all bitter and sad. None of that will matter anyway. Once we win this game, most of the pressure will be on the Thunder, because they lost an opportunity to close us out and they're "supposed" to win game 7 at home. We'll be playing loose, knowing we're just playing with house money.

One step at time, while keeping in mind our ultimate goal: RINGS.

LET'S GO CLIPPERS!!! WE GOT THIS!

Off topic but watching the draft combine I want Patrick Young on our roster. Even as a fifth big love the size and energy. I want two bigs coming out of the draft and a PG or three long bigs. Use our picks and grab the best undrafted excited for the off season and seeing how the DJ contract talk goes.

Back on topic Paul is going to go god mode. Think he looks for his early and often .

After being completely heartbroken by the robbery of game 5 here are my thoughts:

  1. If we hadnt been robbed we still NEEDED this game tonight. Lets go get it and complain about how we would be advancing after tonights game not right now.

  2. Nothing guarantees we would have closed it out tonight. This adversity might be what we need to win a title. If we make it out after the robbery we will be better off than if the robbery had not happened.

  3. These robberies are hard to overcome when the teams are evenly matched, I believe we are significantly better than OKC and can beat them two more times. Game two was close most of the way, game 3 was close until about 2 minutes left. Game 5 we were robbed. In contrast game one we owned them, game 4 we played like crap and still came back.

VDN would fold tonight but I expect Doc to have our guys ready. The only way we lose this series is if OKC(or the refs) beat us. I am not worried about the guys not showing up, ala VDN era. I truly believe OKC can not beat us another game this series.

Just watch the league send in Richard Bavetta to terminate us in Game 7. When you see Bavetta's name on the list, you know we're absolutely screwed a la 2002 Kings.

In the closing minutes. I do believe JJ Reddick should have closed out the game. His movement. Teams take their attention off Paul and worry about Redick getting an open 3 or shot! His movement....
