No they are not. They played very well when the Clips were lackadaisical, and then got locked up (as usual) when Clips clamped down final 4 mins.

The biggest obstacle we face down the stretch is that the Bulls play the Hornets, Celtics, Nets x2, Bucks and us down the stretch. There's literally no way we finish below them. They suck and even with us tanking we're gonna win a few.

I don't really blame him on those isolation plays at the end of games. He's not built for those situations and is being forced into them.


Pascal is the new AP split.

Nick ran that lineup at the end with only one legit shooter.

Yeah when he took out Birch, I thought he was bringing in Harris. Nope, here comes Bembry lol. We had Stanley and Bembry on the floor when we needed buckets. Interesting choice. Anyways, good game.

Pascal's late game decision making is... concerning. Otherwise, an entertaining game with great effort from our depleted roster.

Lol NBA TV is doing a post game for the Clippers vs. Raptors and they're surprised at almost highlight every play. Do these guys even watch the games?

Harris should have remained in the game, those three pointers and his shooting form looked good

As soon as it was released you could feel it was going in.

Bad shot siakam after trying to get the block on zubac

Contrast to Freddy shaking PG which leads to him waking up lol.

How does kawhi get 13 points on 3/6 shots

Great effort, appreciate it, fun game, lots of lead changes .


I'd say the lane violation + missed 3 by siakam hurt.

Should have stuck with going to birch and Harris imo.

He's no.1 option that's been evident for a long time. But I still cheer for him. One day he will ascend just like Vegeta did in space

Has Pascal ever sealed a game for us this year in the final minutes?

I don't care about likability, or even tampering. I like Kawhi, hate LeBron and the Lakers, and would like to see Clippers beat them. But the Clippers are missing something as a team. They have all the pieces, but some magic is lacking. Passing I guess

Harris with his sort of effortless 3 point game. He never looks like he is playing hard but then he ends up with 11 points on perfect shooting. Nick should have just road him until the end.

Yuta, Stanley and Bembry do provide length but then you get Pascal and Fred emptying their clips to the tune of 48 shots. That was ugly at the end. Pascal had Birch for a wide open dunk and he decided to force it. The guy can't win. Earlier in the game he tried to pitch ahead and through the ball away.

The game plan was solid. Everytime George of Paul touched it they had to get the ball really close to five feet behind the line. After taking a dribble help was immediate. It is why Zubac was getting semi open dunks because his guy practically abandoned him every possession. The plan almost worked except as per usual, the Raps couldn't close on offence.

Dont think rondo or beverly were on the floor. Nowhere to hide Harris on D.

Close call.

None of this half-tanking bull against the Wiz. We better be hearing about Fred's hip flaring up and Siakam turning an ankle. Heck, give Khem a night off. He's earned it.

Pascal not feeding the go-ahead pass to Birch, and then committing a charge, should be eligible for a Shaqtin-a-fool honorable mention at least.

Anyone but the two LA teams winning is a watchable playoffs. Hopefully it's the Jazz or Nuggets but wouldn't mind seeing Durant catch up to James in rings so the two similar personalities can have similar treatment.

Durant had also dominated in the playoffs but doesn't get the same adoration some other players do - players he has played better than.

Another second round gem in Jalen Harris. Reminds me of Norm Powell in his first season. IBM Watson at it again :nod:

Hopefully we can see more Flynn and Harris down the stretch and no more Stanley and bembry please.

Return to Toronto Raptors
