Yeah, this loss was not good at all. As I stated before, the Clips need to start winning 2 out of 3 games to climb back into the playoffs. It seems like we are going half and half. That wont cut it. Our weaknesses are starting to be exploited. Good to see Q-Ross have a good game.
The bottom line is this team is playing way too inconsistent. It's like in the movie Rat Race when the rich people are making bets on practically everything...they could take bets on who will have a good game for the Clippers. We know Brand gives his all every night. He is very consistent I'd say...but right now it's like there are too many average players and no other go-to guys on the team. I really hope we can find a true PG in the offseason. Cassell isnt cutting it...he can get very very hot some nights...but he isnt consistent enough to be our starting PG. Livingston isnt a PG, he isnt a SG, he's a tweener guard. Thats kinda frustrating. The only consistent offense is Maggette and Brand. Maggette should be starting and Ross should be starting (but have limited minutes). Anyone know if Ewing can play the point?? He may be our solution to that position. I really think the problem is our PG. I'm not bashing Sam, Shaun or Daniel in any way...its just we need a floor general in our backcourt to consistently provide offense and creating shot opportunities for the other players.
Why did we have to sign Dunleavy and Kaman to contracts this year....couldnt we have waited a year???? I just dont get what the big rush was on them. Dunleavy hasnt propelled this team to success. Elton Brand and Sam Cassell did last year.
I dunno...I guess I'm just venting a little and trying to figure out why we cant keep leads in the fourth or win 2 out of 3 games.
Time to bounce back and get revenge on the Warriors. I see them winning this next one...but I thought this stretch with the past game at home vs. the Cavs was our ticket into the postseason...It aint looking real good guys...but hang in there. I cant be our year every year, hehe. (Just hope it actually happens while we are still alive, lol).
