Trezz was only minus-5 in 22 minutes, and Zu played 22 before fouling out, meaning the Clips were minus-11 in the 4 minutes Green was at the 5.

And Jokic was minus-8 for the night. So much for eye tests.

Good win. One reason I wanted Denver over Utah was that I felt it would be a better matchup for Paul George offensively to get himself going. Really happy to see him looking like a star out there.

Really impressed by Denver's ability to sustain their defensive effort. Our guys are realizing they need to match that intensity.

I am absolutely impressed with Lou Will"s defense in this round. If he keeps playing like that defensively, we are going to be able to keep him on the court more.

Playoffs are about adjustments. I expect Malone to give Michael Porter Jr a lot more minutes alongside Jokic going forward. We have to be able to limit MPJ's contributions going forward.

PG was phenomenal tonight. Forget about that one big game had vs dallas. THIS ONE MATTERED. He carried the team when kawhi wasn't dropping 30, and he willed everyone to a win in a pretty big comeback victory.

Kawhi came up big time by the end. his shooting wasn't bad but it wasn't lights out like we expect in a big game. He did everything else though. That middle finger block will be remembered for a long, long time.

Morris was quiet and solid. I was relieved to see him on defense against jokic late game.

Lou williams was BIG, BIG impact. Tt was almost palpable. We need him to go off at least once or twice a series if we really wanna push for the championship.

Really can't wait for beverley's minute restriction to be lifted. He's sooooooooo, important. Not just because he's really good, but him taking 10+ more minutes means 10 less minutes for our dumpster fire of a defense off the bench.

Montrez... I don't know if he'll figure it out. But here is hoping. If he gets back to normal, nobody will stand in the way. But the way he's playing? I guess it'll be him who's not standing in the way. Of anyone. On defense lol

feel the same about lou. he's just putting in a ton of effort on defense and it shows. he's not perfect or even good but he's so much better than he was in the RS

Murray seems locked up by our guard rotation, and although Jokic is going to get his, it's nice to know we can throw Zubac, Morris, and Green at him. Trezz also did a pretty decent job on him tonight.

Zubac is gaining confidence, but won't take the huge leap until next year. I'll take what I can get this year, but his growth and the trust Kawhi has in him will determine how aggressively the Clips pursue Trez.

Trez has got to be able to turn some of his plays into And1 opportunities. I don't think he had any And1's tonight. He is just too inconsistent from the FT line. He did hit some clutch FTs tonight though.

Kawhi was great defensively throughout the game. He still impacts the game even when the shots aren't falling. Kawhi's ability to rip the ball out of the air is phenomenal. His hands are always in there trying to get the ball.

defensively he was great but his offensive sucked. I'm not talking about efficiency but shot selection. doesn't have the 3 going, instead of operating in the midrange, he's bailing them out with a three he settled for. two times he did that it lead to a wild 5pt+ swing.

That’s the kind of quote that really worries me. Guys, Denver is not a good basketball team. They have one sort of star and then a bunch of fringe guys that work well in the regular season with altitude.

But the Clips need the refs to give them 2.5x the FTA disparity and still need MORE help? And now we have players thinking it. That’s softer than soft. I’d edit the post and ask twitter to take it down. Why would you post it? Lol. Lakers are gonna stomp these softies smh. Please don’t let the Lakers get another title.
