Real question: What is wrong with Leonard that a 28 year old can't play more than 2 time a week?

Great to see Kuzma hitting some key buckets.

Howard was a difference maker in the 2nd half.

Great comeback win.

I wouldn't be surprised if he missed the next game against the Lakers because of load management.

Stephen A and MAx had the argument on TV and I lean to MAx ... The one thing Kawhi has on LeBron is that LEBron ducked him on opening night. HE ducked him, wouldn't defend him, went ghost took the L, and tried press spin it. Right now their play level is close with Bron having a edge, but I give it to KAwhi because Kawhi waxed that ass opening night and then did the my city campaign.

Bron got to put an ass whooping on him tbh for me to say he can have Kawhi's spot

He watched Tony, Tim, and Manu have it done so much and it worked. Then it worked last year to the tune of Finals MVP and ring. Try selling him on what might work as a pitch, when he's seen different and knows better

He's always been a specimen, but he does look really good. Reminiscent of how lean Tim Duncan got later in his career. Glad he -- and we -- are reaping the rewards.

It worked last year because the other team's best and third best players got hurt. If that doesn't happen the Raptors get stomped and no one is talking about how it "works."

Keep thinking healthy thoughts and this is shaping up to be a special season.

Vogel's getting it now too... Kuz is getting there... Cook is starting to feel it... Caruso has been on another level... If we can get something from Daniels, if Rondo comes back better than ever (wth is wrong with him anyway?), and if we can get our Dog Bradley back and keep him healthy... I like our chances against anyone.

More specifically, he's got a chronic thigh/quad issue that's hampered him throughout his career. Even with all the rest he got last year he reportedly ended up with a knee injury during the playoffs in the other leg caused by compensating for it. So unless they can figure out a better solution, this is basically how it's going to be for the rest of his career.

They said during the game Rondo was initially diagnosed with a strain but was still hurting so he got it checked out with a MRI and they found a tear not near the calf but near the Achilles so he has sat to be safe

But it worked. There are so many what ifs.

If Malone doesn't get hurt the LAkers win and Kobe/Shaq probably stay together and PAyton does not get traded or Fisher walk.

Heck if Jason Kidd's knee doesn't blow out in game 7 the Nets make 3 straight Finals and we never see the Pistons anyhow

KAwhi won doing stuff his way. The Clippers have never won ****. So following his path may get them there

It worked for the Raptors because they had a great supporting cast around him. They had a better record without him than with him. Can the clippers do that? It remains to be seen, especially until George comes back. Dude is a part-time player at this point.

Shaq was part time player too at his peak. But unlike Shaq, KAwhi comes and stays in shape.
