You gotta love Sindarius who in my heart is more a Clipper than a number of fellows wearing the uniform now. Great attitude, hard worker, super teammate, defensive grit.

Hanging on to his career by the threadiest of threads--now on a two-way with Orlando who just traded away all their best players.

Doing "all the little things" is great but the ditches are full of SGs who just can't S. Even Austin Rivers is getting 20+ mpg on a PLAYOFF team and he can only S a little.

It's nice to see you've finally come around to what I was saying about Sin when he was actually a Clipper.

2 1/2 years ago I predicted Sindarius would soon be out of the league. Unfortunately true for all practical purposes: Since then he has logged fewer than 200 NBA minutes for a grand total of 34 points. To put that in context, garbage time Daniel Oturu has already logged 107 minutes and scored 35.

Terry Stotts is getting canned if it's another first round exit.

Blake was giving Jokic fits. Damn, I really wish we could have him and Boban back to help us beat Denver.

geezus that's a lot of minimum-wage ex-Clipper horseflesh out there :rofl2:

BKN

Blake Griffin*[starter] 27 min 20/2/3 —Obviously dogged it in DET
Jeff Green* 26 min 15/5/2 —Everybody hated on trading for him but STILL in a playoff rotation 5 years later
Landry Shamet* 22 min 3/0/3 — Bad game but in the Nets rotation; still better than Kennard
DeAndre Jordan 5 min 1/3/1 —A stiff before playing for Doc and a stiff after, owes Doc bigtime


DEN

Austin Rivers* [starter] 35 min 12/5/1 — See Jeff Green, above. Fans hate him, coaches don't.
J-Myke Green [starter] 32 min 9/6/1 — Just a guy with an NBA body. I wasn't a fan, still ain't. Always nice % stats though lol


ex-Clippers played almost 1/3 of the minutes in this game [148 out of 480]
mostly at *minimum wage :lol:
every one KICKED TO THE CURB

ejected, rejected and dejected

With Sixers lost tonight and our win, both team is at 47-23. Our next 2 games are gainst G leaguer squads so we should be able to pull 49-23. If we somehow managed to get finals we'll have the homecourt advantage regardless who the opponent is. Just sayin :)

So we decided to focus on 1st round matchup rather than finals. Okeyyyy.

What I would give to have Tatum as our 2nd star 8-) 8-)


Another playoff flop Westbrook game. That Thunder big 3 is one of the biggest SMH's in recent history.. :crazy:

Can't blame it all on Russ when Beal didn't show up. Also, Scott Brooks was doing his best Doc Rivers impression. No gameplan on offense besides "bail me out with isos," and he kept making Beal guard Tatum with no adjustments even when it wasn't working.

Also just a bad matchup, Celtics for all their issues have just better talent. I like Westbrook and Beal a lot better against the Pacers without Oladipo and no real stars besides Sabonis.

I hope the reffing at the end of the Lakers vs Warriors game is a reminder as to why you'd be crazy to want to play them in the first round...

Reffing is an excuse. The Warriors lost because of all the sloppy turnovers they had. And LeBron hit a nice shot.

And LeBron is CLEARLY hobbled right now so this would have been the best time to take them out but I suppose we'll just see them in the hopefully WCF now when his ankle is feeling better. :-?

That and the game-winner by LeBron.
