interesting observation
and Trez was his boy too

I agree--although not hurting us, Lou is not tuned in

his heart is not here anymore
the bond is broken
there is no "Clipper family"

Lou knows that with the first decent trade offer his ass is out of Ballmerville

Now another warriors run. The chemistry and defense will need time with the starting unit

Lou could be checked out, but so far in the season overall he's shooting quite solid from 3PT range and his turnover rate is down a lot (0.6/game before tonight), so he might just be older and trying to fit into a different bench situation.

Lou's been a journeyman throughout his whole career for a reason, and it's not because of Ballmer. Players like him are always alluring to teams until they start seriously trying to win, then the glaring deficiencies in his game and his poor playoff performance make him an obvious candidate for a trade.

I'm agreeing with you--Lou's %s are still acceptable

but 10 ppg, not 18 ppg

Glad Kawhi didn't get hurt there, and nice 4 point swing

I'm agreeing with you--Lou's %s are still acceptable

His TS% has slowly gone down as a Clipper:
17-18: 57.4%
18-19: 55.4%
19-20: 54.6%
20-21: 51.8% (too small sample)

He was 1.9% under the league average of 56.5% last season, in 18-19, he was close enough since the league average TS% was 56.0%, so just 0.4% under. So with his seeming linear decline in scoring efficiency (this year, the lack of FT's and lower FT% is the issue), maybe it's time for him to shoot less anyways.

Batum man, just keeps producing!!!!

That was good defense by Wiggins, he can actually defend man to man if he's focusing

Return to Los Angeles Clippers
