We really need to push the tempo more on offense. We have probably the worst half court offense in the league without PG/Kawhi.

Why did some Clipper fans want Hyland? Dude looks like a selfish chucker when I've seen him play. One track mind offensive player

28 points @ half time. Amir Coffey showed up. Where u at Reggie Jackson? T-Mann? Bledsoe? At this point maybe getting Lou Will back might help our atrocious offense. :lol:

28 POINTS AT HALFTIME!!!???? A 12-POINT SECOND QUARTER?!!

Because we NEED a "selfish chucker" at the moment! Like Jamal and Lou, who were LOVED by their teammates. Complementary players who do the little things are just what you want when building a team around two 24 ppg superstars and frankly we can't blame the FO for not having one on the roster when he'll be useless in the playoffs when they come back.

Frankly I feel bad for Reggie, who just got reconciled to being a role player, and is trying to come through for his team. He isn't "selfishly chucking" or if he is, it's not out of selfishness, it's out of selflessness.

Anybody can sit back and play it safe when everything's going to hell. But that's not Reggie.

Phew, that was scary

What a win, that's fight and defense for you. If you don't have the offensive talent, defense is going to win you a lot more games than trying to out offense people. Defense means all you need is just enough scoring.

That's why even though they only scored 28 in the first half, Denver only had 41 so the defense was good, the offense just couldn't buy a bucket or find a rhythm. But because the defense was competing, I knew they'd have a chance to turn the game around.

Yes, all true. But we scored 32 in the 4th quarter. Times 4, with average defense, 128 points is gonna win most nights.
