Team still has a lot of work to do. If Kennards in the game he needs to be involved in more action

Where's Playaloc??!! Reggie is his man. :lol:

I really don't want to be hating on Reggie. If you think about it, he's our only legit PG and there's no reason he can't be as valuable at the back of the rotation as say, TJ McConnell.

More Doc Rivers basketball so far tonight. Same stagnant offense, same blown leads with no timeouts or adjustments. Gee, it's almost like promoting from within the same failed coaching staff did nothing to change anything.

Never watched Kennard play until he became a Clipper. He's taking Shamet's place and is already an upgrade across the board--D, rebs, playmaking. I'm not asking a lot. In fact, if we have to lean on him, we're in trouble. :o

Brutal games by Zu and Ibaka.

Not that anyone is playing particularly well but those 2 ...

Ibaka is plus+9, 9 points and 12 rebounds. It's not as bad as it looks.

As for Zu, he's the odd man out, no longer racking up minutes alongside our best players Kawhi, PG and Bev. Serge is getting those minutes. Zu is starting over with a brand-new set of courtmates.

Just eat minutes with a plus/minus around zero.

Nice to see Lou actually play some defense for a change.

I always feel as though Lou has a separate agenda since the bubble. His misses are very questionable including his turnovers. Strange.

Think Lue would of went to Zu more tonight like he has in recent games if not for the foul trouble. We finally made a push to create space with the switch

Get Lou out of the game. He just doesn't look right. Like someone throwing the game away

Return to Los Angeles Clippers
