No excuses. Now or never. Win or go home. No more second guessing. This is it. Put everything on the line for a date with the Lakers. Play for the full 48 minutes and we win.
GO CLIPPERS!!!

I got Covid symptoms bad but a negative test (getting another test tomorrow since the symptoms are so bad).

So, I’m cancelling my entire schedule and staying in bed until I recover.

Don’t call me a doctor but I’m sure a win here will eliminate some of my symptoms. :D

Man sucks for you but hoping it's the common flu. Hope the Clippers get you out of it with a nice win.

How often do you get negative test if you got the virus,I think rare?

Best of luck to you and our team. :D

and if we lose there's always next season with a few distinct possibilities

- doc gets canned. i was reading lowe's article today and you just look at doc's body of work here and go "wow, we have had some very strong teams that just can't get to the next step, under his guidance"

- harrell is gone. which is a lot of money we save. but mostly i can see the FO focusing on bringing in more defensive personnel. we don't need a guy like that to win games. we need guys who can D up and allow us to play unexploitable basketball in the playoffs.

- zubac gains a bigger role. this guy is for real and he needs the minutes. imo this team is only scratching the surface with the zubac/kawhi P/R. something that can and should be extended to lou and PG (especially with lou if montrez goes).

whatever happens tonight, this team is on the right track.

We need a performance from Kawhi tonight like LeBron in Game 6 against the Celtics in 2012. This is why we traded all those picks, we need MVP Kawhi to win this in spite of Doc.

Agreed. That's as close as we're getting to a silver lining. However if Doc's not fired, then all bets are off
Trez has to go. He's undersized, cannot shoot or rebound with consistency. We need to get rid of all the dead wood contracts.
Total new direction.
But let's hope it does not get to that.

I’m calling it. George has a bad shooting game, Denver takes the lead going to 4th but starts playing not to lose. Lou Will gets hot, Clips tighten the defense, Kawhi with dagger pull ups, Clips win.

Can you not call a 15 point blowout? My heart can't take your scenario :)

It’s very possible Jokic finally gets cold from shooting from the perimeter...Grant is due tho, but so is Lou... Law if averages in play

Or Durant in game 6 against the Clippers in last years playoffs. Let Gary Harris and Grant talk to the media after the game about how insane good you are. C'mon Kawhi.

PER COWHERD: 9 of the last 11 NBA champions have had at least one series go to 7 games.

Clips will handle their business. Clips haven't been behind in a series yet. Going down 3-1, the Nuggets have been Jamal Crawford with his team down 25. Now, they are Jamal Crawford with his team down 4. Much different pressure because the Clips are in a win or go home scenario also.

Take nothing away from Denver. I don't know why people looked at this series as an easy win. Denver was tied with the Warriors at 51-24 on Mar 29th last year before ending with the 2nd best record in the West. They should have beat Portland in the semifinals last year, but their inexperience showed squandering a 3-2 series lead. They were up going into the 4th in Game 7 last season and down 1 with 29 seconds to play. They are going to battle us to the end.

Whoever wins this series wins the West.
