So, Nassir Little gets the start in place of Powell. I'd say he's earned it, but he's going to have his hands full guarding Paul George (currently leading the league in scoring at 35.0 ppg).

I expect to also see a lot of RoCo on PG13, especially if Little gets in early foul trouble. I expect the Clippers to go at him early to test the young fellow.

Clippers defense is clearly elite. I almost forgot what that looked like

Borderline unwatchable.

Can’t hold onto the ball, make the simple pass or guard anybody.

Dame just can't buy a 3 to start the season. Hopefully his form rounds into shape.

Was not playing Dame in the pre season a mistake??

You often here of guys who play in the Olympics having a tough time adjusting to the new NBA season. Could be that as well.

Yea... I'm going to give Lillard time... however, it's going to be very hard to carry him playing like he has to start the season. Luckily, he looks quick and spry out there... his shot has been awful to start the season though.

Nurk needs to ride the pine the rest of the game to be honest... he's been absolutely unacceptable tonight. I don't really give a **** if it hurts his feelings or whatever, he's Nolan Smith levels right now.

Letting melo walk was a mistake. We need players that create their own shot from a position other than guard, and this game highlights that need.

Having said that, this is the worst game I've seen in years.

Wow, most TOV since January, 1989. That's when I moved to Oregon.

Specifically, they had 30 TOV in a 120 - 116 loss to the Knicks on Jan 22, 1989 - the day after I moved to OR. The game must have been sloppier back then. Earlier in the same month, the Kings had 36 TOV in a 147 - 142 double OT loss to the Blazers.
