I will sleep like a baby.

fLakers should be very concerned. I am torn.

I want the clippers to meet and then thrash the fLakers in the WCF on their march to glory. But I also love seeing them cut down to size in the first round.

ah, sweet schadenfreude!

Agreed Kuz.

We started this season beating Lakers without PG and everything seemed on the right course.

Sadly Lakers got better with time and cruised to WCF.

I'm going to watch and enjoy the Lakers and Nuggets. May the best team win.

Lakers publicly taking the high road, but likely privately gloating. Former Lakers publicly gloating.

Only the Nuggets taking them out in less than 7 will change that. If Denver brings that same defensive intensity they did against us, it is possible. Denver is 12-4 in the playoffs last 2 years when holding their opponents under 108 pts.

I'm not holding my breath.

I expect them to handle Denver pretty easily.
6 games max.

I agree. They can handle Jokić way better than us,and that is job half done.

What stood out to me in last night's game is how horrible of a decision is was not to sign Dwight Howard last off-season. We continued to lack depth in the post, but allowed the Lakers to add to their size.

Reports at the time were about Dwight being in great shape. All of Doc's Clippers team have lacked front court depth with size (other than the half season with DJ and Boban).

Maybe Doc passed on him to play Trez.

But yeah,maybe that move would bring us the championship. :cry:

Not watching the game but just checked the score... fLakers down by 18 at end of 3... Lebron and Unibrow have combined 37 points...
The Clipper fan understands the Book of Exodus better than anyone... what it's like to struggle 40 years in the wilderness... and Genesis.. why Cain went after Abel... So fLakers, look out... we're coming.

Doc would have played trezz over dwight. We have a dumb coach. He's antiquated and doesn't pay attention to the anaylytics. We need to understand the clippers didn't lack talent to win against the nuggets. We lacked the coaching intelligence. Doc wouldn't have pulled mgee during that run. We would have tried a half ass pep talk and continue to let them struggle. He's a terrible coach. I know I keep ragging on him but I don't want kawhi leonard to waste his PRIME years playing for doc rivers.
