What exactly does getting swept by the Jazz do for this team, other than maybe delay the tough choices that this franchise inevitably has to make for another year?
I don't think this team would be swept, and that they would have a good chance against the Jazz.
I can't understand why you would ASSUME future losses before the series even happens. I mean, why bother to be a fan if you actually hope and expect for losses?
I have seen teams come back from 2-3, and until they pry the basketball out of our cold dead fingers I root for the Clips tomorrow night and Sunday! Period !
You can root for them but don't get your hopes up. This is a team with an awful fit from their 2 max stars together, awful management who constructed a poorly thought out roster , awful coaching who did nothing to prepare them for the playoffs (TMann, driving to paint) and of course the notorious choke artist.
I root for the long term success of this team, and this roster ain't it. I'd feel a Lot more optimistic had we had all those 1st round picks and be confident Kawhi was with us long term to go with TMann and... jeez that's it.
