Seeing Reggie and Patterson isn’t ideal

This offensive performance from the Clippers so far reminds me of Baylor last night.

Patterson was actually throwing an alley-oop off the backboard

Wow, what a quarter. PG is having to think and do less now. Lesser load for him

Good to see PG shooting well to start this game, it's been a while. Where's T-Mann? He can't possibly be behind Reggie in the rotation.

Really don't like the fact that Mann isn't being rewarded for his play recently. This is Doc-esque coaching from Lue and it's the type of thing that will bite us in the ass come playoff time.

Reggie was in before Rondo too, although Bev was yanked after only 4 minutes and Reggie is his designated caddy
but that might be the plan going forward for when Bev gets into early foul trouble [often :lol:]

Mann has seen us through some tough times but we have 2 new veteran bodies plus Bev is back
It was righteous of Ty to give Mann and a taste out there Pat Pat too


BTW--11 Clippers have played--Kennard still sits

Lue is just experimenting. Mann will always get minutes in some form or fashion from here on out. Not sure where Kennard fits right now

Nice help defense by Mann there, the advantage of guards with length

So im only into the 1st quarter, but this is a perfect example of how PG should play in EVERY game regardless of if it goes in or not.

- Quick 3's
- Quick decisions going to the rim
- LOOKING to draw contact
- making the open pass when it's available

Rondo is going to be PERFECT for this team. That 1st quarter we looked like a super team, though our defensive rebounding was a bit suspect.

I'm not happy at all about our defense, but that quarter made us look eerily similar to the Nets where we might be able to just outscore teams.

Bev was fantastic as well!!! Looked better than ever.

Didn't like Reggie coming off the bench instead of TMann though to start.
