Beverly flipping all over the floor. I don’t ever want this guy on the Raps

That's a flagrant foul? Scott Foster probably has money on the Clippers.

I would never watch a game if that crackhead is on the Raptors.

If ever there was an example of how **** the NBA is at properly defining what is and what isn't continuation in today's game, it was the and-1 called on that PG drive with a minute to go. That was never a continuation. Foul on the floor, PG takes an extra step, and then only after throws it up. Man, Lowry would get 5 of those a game then

Kawhi got clamped by Bogdanović down the stretch. He kept having to pass it out.

Utah was up by 1 and I turn on the game and promptly 9-0 run that cinched the game. Beautiful!

PatBev, Jackson terrible shots in the final 3 mins - Kawhi should be taking every shot like the final two games vs Mavs. Love to see it.

I mean Kawhi can't do much when he gets double teamed every play and then has to face Gobert in the paint. Morris was absolute trash and missed so many open looks, Beverly wasn't any better. He was surrounded by shooters in Toronto, which makes the double team less effective.

there's no way Kawhi can carry this Clippers team to a championship.....even if they get past the grueling 20-21 games in the West he'll be limping going up against KD and the Nets.

Betting on the Clippers to lose in the second round has to be the safest bet in pro sports, right?

It's refreshing watching a player like DMitchell. Real talent who can create his own shot from anywhere. This guy is a baller.

Kawhi's the only Clipper that's going to get a consistent whistle. Nurse would throw bodies at him, and he struggled to make decisions. Snyder is following suit. Carlisle is stubborn and just decided to let Kawhi hunt down his own shots.

And Bojan won the jump ball. I did not see that coming.

Who's the best Bogdanovic? Bojan seems to be more of a complete two-way player.

Bogdanovic has always been extremely underrated.

Go back to the Pacers vs Lebron series from 2018 when the Pacers almost knocked out Lebron in the 1st round....Bogdanovic was one of the key guys on that Pacers squad that made Lebron sweat and work to get his game off. Part of the reason the pre-Kawhi Raps teams always struggled against Lebron is because they never really had a good 2-way player to defend Lebron + not be a complete liability on offense.

A Clippers loss brightens my morning. I don't really have anything against Kawhi, but in no way do I want Balmer to be happy.

Maybe not leaving Toronto, but hitching his wagon to the wrong horse.


This is why management should never let players dictate personnel issues. Kawhi should’ve told the Clippers I’ll join it you get another superstar. For some reason he thought PG would be perfect and it turns out the Clippers gave up the farm for the wrong player. Let’s say hypothetically the Clippers gave the same haul up for a guy like Harden? Or Chris Paul and Harden? They’d be way more competitive. In fact, few teams would’ve turned down what the Clippers traded in the end.

Now the Clippers are stuck with PG and need to come up with some BS pitch to Kawhi as to why he should stick around. After convincing him to stay, they’ll need to trade PG and figure out how to compete with a bunch of teams that are deeper and more talented. If everyone is healthy next season then I don’t see how this current Clippers team can survive vs Utah, Denver, Lakers, GSW, and maybe even Dallas.

The Clippers might have been better off just keeping SGA and doing nothing. SGA has become one of the top young guys in the league and he would've complemented Kawhi well. And they'd have a bunch of assets to make another move or two.

Clips are going home now and Jazz are missing Mike Conley. They'll have their work cut out for them.
