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.


I was being sarcastic.

These stupid "sarcastic" tank posts make the board a pain to read. We lose a game - hey they are helping the tank, Har Har Har. Simpleton level

You could do this for any forward in the NBA. So what would be the point exactly?

Siakam has a 2-to-1 assist to turnover ratio, it's not like he doesn't look to pass.

like any big Siakam needs to be set up. He rarely gets easy buckets. We all know he's not 1A guy so to keep trashing him for it gets old. Lowry was setting him up beautifully last game. FVV had good assist game tonight but synergy with Siakam wasn't there.

Depends on what side of the coin you are. If you're on tWo, he's sealed almost 10. :lol:

Siakam has been very dependable in close games ;)

Seems like Kawhi hates his team. But he left a mix of vets and team first guys in SA and here so you can’t really be that sad for him.

Being 1A, being 1B, 2C, 3D, has nothing to do with making stupid **** plays down the stretch. Just keep it simple stupid. Pass the **** ball if you have a guy that's wide open running to the hoop. Instead you can see the gears grinding in his head like "oh ****, it's a fast break, we might score, I need to score, I need to be the man". If he literally just played the same way and the same humble way he came into the league, he'd be an incredible player for us. Part of it is us forcing a square peg into a round hole, but he self sabotages a LOT

I see jalen Harris is the new toy. This time next week he’ll be acclaimed as the future PG for the squad LOL.

The lottery balls better fall our way cause siakam isn’t the only issue on this team.

What does that have to do with him grabbing the ball with two open teammates down the floor and deciding to run into five guys and turn it over? Or committing a lane violation? Or missing a free throw in a key moment?

The bonehead plays he makes have nothing to do with needing to be set up.

As these two games in LA proved, you don't need a ton of talent to win in this league. You need two star players and energetic role players. We only lost this game because Siakam wasn't as good as he was against the Lakers.

There's an amazing amount of talent on the Clippers, even without Serge. It comes at you in waves. But they should just hand Rondo the keys as a starter, and let him organize everything.

He was finding Birch and others.

Ad didn’t bother to defend pascal last game..the clippers just have too much length. I’d see them run a pnr to get a switch and he’d have batum matched up on him who’s as long as pg/kawhi :lol:

To be fair....I was expecting the pass to birch to get mucked up. There was an awkwardness in how the play developed. I don't think the pass was COMPLETELY there....looked like a risk.

Probably should have just pulled it back out though.

From what I saw in tonight's game - with Reggie Bullock and Morris hitting big shots - I think Kawhi is much more confident in his teammates than last year. I think Clippers have a higher ceiling than last year, especially with Rondo and Ibaka.

They just didn't try against us until 4 mins to go and we were up by 6.

Yeah a lot of "I need to be the man" comes from him being forced to be 1A guy. In a properly constructed team he's not in position to make those decisions.

Simplify the game for him so the decisions he makes are simple. Him being 1A right now is obviously too much for him hence stupid decisions.
