A lot of lessons to take away from this game IMO. They may not win this series, but playing against great individual veteran defenders will help this team in the future tremendously. Clippers are so deep and have all kinds of weapons to throw at you.
Maxi made Kawhi earn his points 1on1 which is key this series. Really interested to see if he can play him even tougher. DFS really struggles to get any stops. Once Luka or Hardaway switch on George it is just game over
. We can't hide them both, either one has to figure it out or we get more MKG, who killed it yesterday IMO.
We really need KP to figure out how to box out Zubac. Those second chances will kill us every time. It's really bad we couldn't pick up another big after losing Powell and WCS. Noah did not even make LAC active roster and he would get valuable minutes here. Gortat (wiki says retired :/) or someone like that certainly would help more than Cleveland...
So many things did not go our way yet the game was in striking distance. I was ready to go sleep after 5 minutes but they battled all night. Really sucked they had to toss KP like that.
