Series is over next game. Lets get on with it already. LA v LA is the battle to watch

I'd like to see that.

But Doc might have other plans.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTE LOCK hobos are winning tonite. Not only they'll have the refs but all factors point to them winning so congrats to them see them Friday.

Biggest factor is the Clippers have never lost 3 straight this season. Won't happen now. kawhi george and doc will make sure it won't. Guaranteed. Or the NBA won't let it.

Clips will show the world that they will win a game that they deem important or that counts. Turn it on when they want.
How nice it is to show that kind of a sportsman attitude to aspiring young fans out there on how to go about life and still win when you want.

lol :lol: , man I guess the Clippers just fell apart, that was almost as entertaining as seeing Bam block Tatum for the Heat victory.
Yeah you have 17 titles....but winning the majority of them over 40 years ago is meh.

I am so glad we didn't sign Paula George to a max contract. That was a major bullet dodged.

The Clips are still actually the Clips.

Can't wait to read the excuses from Doc and co.

Paul George "we didn't see this season as title or bust"; Doc "I wasn't comfortable with the conditioning of the team".

If this is the mentality of your players in a playoff series, you wouldn't be able to win a championship if you had the original dream team roster.

A game winning block in OT!!! Damn, Bam. Jason PoTatum!

The Seattle Flippers. Man, what a good night’s outcome.

Being that I live in NE and hear the unreasonable local Tatum comparisons to Larry Bird, Jesus Christ and so on; thanks to Bam on behalf of all of mankind for blocking his dunk. Tatum looked like a twig teen going up against a beast. Embarrassing for him but hilarious for us. I wonder how many million GIFs are already made...

It's more entertaining than I thought it could be, and I thought it could be pretty great.

Even as the piss started running down their legs in the fourth, I STILL thought they were going to turn it around. They obviously never had that consistency all season, but I didn't think it was possible that they could fall apart that badly. Up 3-1, with double-digit leads in each of the last three games ... one of the most stunning collapses in NBA history.

I've never, ever been a "fire the coach" guy. To me it always has been and always will be a players league. Shut up and perform. But even with Kawhi and George playing so poorly, I put so much blame on Rivers. He whines and makes sooooo many excuses, beyond just trying to game the officials like Phil used to, and I think that filters down to your players.

It reminds me so much of how we'd completely fold the first time we'd get punched in the mouth under Delicate Harris. Obviously Kobe being ready to ascend was an enormous factor, but the difference in mental toughness between those teams and Phil's was night and day. Again, personnel was different, but we went from getting routinely swept to winning rings.

I guess you can point to those Celtics teams, who were super tough. But looking back on that I'd give most of the credit to KG and Pierce. Doc's been eating off that success for a long, long time now. The problem is, I don't know who else they could really get that stands out. But if I was a Clippers fan, I'd want him gone yesterday.
