Duncan Robinson does not appear to be the same shooter he used to be. Maybe it's the new ball.

Down 1 point, Lowry steals the ball and hands it to Robinson for a dagger three. That missed.

Adebayo rebounds, goes for a 2-pointer. That missed. Forced foul.

Clippers go into god mode whenever their lead margin is down to a single point, knowing that the next shot puts them in a deficit. Very similar to their performances whenever they're down 2-0 in a playoff series, or one game away from a 3-game losing streak.

Reggie really stepped up in the clutch tonight! Good win.

In general Zu is a net negative for the team like 70% of the time. He should not be having the role he has.



You people are insane. Zu carried the load most of the game. Lowry didn’t go off until Hartenstein matchup most of the 4th and when he came in Lowry was already hot. Even still he was hustling and making plays but Lowry couldn’t be stopped

Ty is sticking with him for now. I like that he's picked up a little in his post moves with that baby hook but Zu left a LOT of points out there in the 4th because he's a weak finisher. Still not Prime Time. :-?

I can understand why Lakers fans are upset about not getting Kyle Lowry.

Clippers find a way after a brutal 4th and Lowry playing like Jordan

He shot 7-10 with 18 points god damn. That lead and the game getting that close had nothing to do with him

Winning culture, baby. Never panic when we fall into a hole, claw our way back and keep taking good shots. Frankly I don't think we're all that good, but we play the game right. Even with Reggie and Bledsoe kinda hairy lol. :lol:

Duncan Robinson's contract has to be one of the worst in the league. He got paid $90 million and immediately turned into Jerome Robinson. Not sure what Miami was thinking there.

They had to make it more interesting than necessary but impressive win just the same.

Batum really is the glue.

Jackson stepped up in the clutch.

Bledsoe continues to get more comfortable and show why they traded for him. When he sat we had no one attacking the defense to get inside.

My only complaint. Stop withe the slow starts. It’s going to bite them in the ass eventually.

Before tonight, Zu had the worst plus/minus on the team except for Winslow. And he remains a weak finisher at the basket. Just telling it like it is. Is he Crunch Time/Prime Time yet? No, not yet. He got stuffed twice in a row on gimmes. It was a tighter finish than it could have been.

I agree with Ty sticking with him esp since Zu is showing some post moves. He had his best game of the year tonight.

PG saves his energy for the 4th and he's surrounded by 3 nonscorers plus Reggie, who is miscast as the 2nd leading scorer [zero points in the first half tonight]. The slow starts are almost by design.

When he comes back, if Marcus as our 3rd-best paid player were our 3rd-best performer, our problems would be over.

Whew, good win tonight. Bledsoe is putting a nice string of games together as of late. Perfect timing. Zu had a good game going until midway into the 4th. He's got to convert on some of the gimmies in the paint. PG, Reggie, and Kennard balled out but the game ball goes to Duncan Robinson. How much are they paying that guy again? Sheesh


-Also our home crowds are starting to improve as well

You see the lineups and struggle shooting units he had to play with in his minutes? His scoring has been a underrated part of the early season. He is literally seeing career highs in his advanced scoring and shooting statistics. Going 7-10 is still 7-10 and two blocks doesn’t take away from his amazing scoring night.

He helped finish these last two games and a couple before these games. Zu didn’t get the last minute of the game but it was obvious the Hartenstein thing wasn’t working all night. He earned the right to try against Lowry but a player like that in the zone it’s difficult. Even with Lowry going off before he came in he helped chip in on the lead and finished with your favorite stat +7. That’s completely unfair to expect Zu to slow down Lowry when he built up a rhythm before he stepped on the court.
