Griffin has some bad habits when things don't go his way and not getting touches, pouting and even when his teammates scored

Next year we will be much better when we face them...They are without Roy and Camby. They put up a few wins, but they will definitely be faltering soon, as the injuries will catch up with them.

Not saying it would be different tonight, but we need our injured guys back ASAP, especially Kaman.

We have to come out and beat the Warriors on Saturday. They have been playing well of late.
I've been an LA Clipper fan since 1998 and that will never change. I hate our new logo and jerseys!

If Butler isn't going to play we need a small deal to get a tall SG because Foye is getting killed guys can shoot over him and makes matters worse he isn't quick enough to stay in front so he has no chance if they get inside.

This loss was disappointing especially with the way we started the game. We need to close out quarters better.

By the way, I'm not really sure why DJ wasn't in the game. Once we cut the lead to 3, DJ should have been put in the game. Miller wouldn't have had such a wide open layup!

Blake is amazing and I'm a bug fan but he needs to play better D!

I don't think he got back in after the bench tech. Vinny and one of the assistants got up and stormed down and ripped him. We had momentum at the time

I was pretty annoyed on this game. Aldrige got many easy baskets.

We need a SF who can score, and defend.

This game was very important. I dont believe we can reach playoffs after this. Unless we land on Carmelo somehow.
I agree that Blake's minutes should be limited to 30-32 since I dont want him to get an injury or something for playing too much.

Please take him :pray:

Really like your team. If Aminu develops can be scary.

You guys seem to have the same issue we've had the past 5 or so years. It's almost all iso. When the team starts moving the offense clicks and you look unstoppable. Then it goes right back to Pick n Pop/roll or iso and the defenses figure it out.

Also with some better defense (Aminu, but especially Blake, he looked bad there) that's a rock solid lineup for years to come
Thank you for all the memories BRoy. You were a class act and brought hope to an entire region for 5 years. You will be missed.

Gordon will be a scoring champ and Aminu should get more consistent minutes.

Watched the full game which was a first in a long time being in Aus..
few things i noticed and wanted to bring up

- Blake really seemed to struggle on D, is he normally like that? (i wont say bad cause Blazers were on a roll)
- I don't see why Butler isn't getting minutes, Foye did some good things but did a lot of bad
- And why doesnt VDN play Aminu more? Gomes doesn't do a lot even if his main game is defense, didn
t seem to be that good in that area anyways..

good catch, Aldridge has finally become the player the last 6 weeks we fans always hoped he would be. He's playing great, going in the paint way more and carrying this injury riddled team on his back, He should be an all star this yr

By the way I like your young talent, with a few more pieces and some seasoning you guys have a bright future, hope Sterling does not screw it up

Agreed, the Clips are LOADED with talent. 2 potential 25-30 PPG players and some great role players like Deandre Jordan in the mix as well. Hopefully the clips can get it together but not at the expense of the Blazers of course. :) Anyways, if you were a Blazer fan, you'd realize that it's hard to find many compliments about Aldridge this season from out-of-Portlanders. As far as I'm concerned Blake and LA should both be All-stars.

Another Blazers fan. Enjoyed the game. I love watching the Clips this year - what a fun team.

Personally, I think McMillan is underrated by some Blazers fans - and maybe even our stupid front-office. I hope they are smart enough to keep him and let him run the team as he wants - he gets results.

Anyway, good luck to the Clips the rest of the way - Blake Griffin is just a pure joy to watch.

Griffin isn't great on the defensive end by any means but usually he's better than he showed last night. He'll at least fight for position in the post and moves his feet pretty well on the perimeter. He was totally lost on rotations last night. One of the issues he always has is that he won't leave his feet to challenge shots. He's not tall enough to just stand there with his hands up and bother people too much. Not saying he should hop around as much as he does on offense but he needs to get up in the air to bother shooters occasionally.

The SF spot has been a problem all year. They just don't get nearly enough production and now VDN is resorting to going with a 3 guard lineup. The front office really should go out and get a starting caliber forward that can shoot 3s and play D with Aminu backing him up. They need to make more space for Griffin to operate down low.
