Jackson is back.

Shaw said they got the all clear for everyone (who’s available) to play tonight. Hopes Serge can log a lot of minutes with Zu out.

Probably see a lot of funky lineups.

If I were the Clippers, I'd look into hiring a rebounding specialist coach. This roster was just never meant to rebound, only leaving it to the superstars and their starting center. That has to change.

Starting to like Coffey more and more each game. His ceiling isn't very high obviously, but he fills his role very well.

really liking how kennard's getting better at the small things over time. obviously his defense is the biggest thing, but he's a lot more confident and decisive about putting the ball on the floor if he's at the 3 point line and a drive (and sometimes kick) is the better move.

not something we ever would have gotten with shamet.

right now we have a 4-wing (and 1 bledsoe) lineup, and they're just everywhere on defense. not that we weren't really forced into it, and not that i can name a single playmaker on the floor for the raptors, but it's really nifty to see during the regular season.

The refs have been bailing out Toronto when their players have been out of control. It's ridiculous

You can point to the lack of rebounding for this one. Ouch.

meh, bad shot by coffey there and 3 by the raps pretty much closes the door on us.

super winnable game. they just really abused reggie at the end on defense and the team wasn't as disciplined as it needed to be.

This game should've been postponed based off of the other teams that had games postponed when they had too many players out
