Rondo hasn't earned himself minutes, he's been pretty uninspiring. I can understand the sentiment, but Clippers created open shots though, many of them, that's the goal. Now the next step is to make them. The 47% 3PT shooter missed too many of them.

Props to Reggie Jackson. He was markedly better than Paul George tonight.

I know American NBA players love to talk about how tough they are based on some "ghetto" they grew up in. This is Bojan's hometown around the time he was 7.

The George thing is frustrating, I don't think he meant to hurt Mitchell and it's one of those things where maybe you just eat the turnover if you are the Jazz because the game is over.

Did something happen in the 3rd Q? Didn't see anything

**** pathetic play by PG

I go after him or Kawhi next game with dirty plays

Unwritten rules to not make hard fouls at that point

Hoping Conley is ready


Yes, right at the beginning he did a crossover, and you saw him grimace in pain (they replayed it a couple of times). No way do you retaliate, the series will just devolve at that point. I think it was a stupid play by George but stuff happens.

Honestly (2) and (5) are smart and not dirty, just frustrating. They are hard for the refs to spot when you are focusing on the ball.


6. Morris flaring out his hip when shooting the corner three in the 4th quarter.

The list goes on and on. There really isn't a more shady team than these Clippers.

I watched that Paul George foul on Donovan Mitchell over and over, and I can’t see what people are talking about when they call it dirty. It wasn’t a hard enough bump for me to think it was intentional, and he didn’t make contact with the legs. I think Mitchell aggravating his injury was just a chance thing. Mitchell stumbles after the contact, but that seems to be because of the aggravation, not because of a trip.

doesn't make American players any less tough

You ever hear that story about the little orphan boy abandoned in Eastern Europe who grew up on the streets raised by feral dogs until he became the alpha of the pack and led his posse of feral dogs butt naked and barking on all fours? They'd storm into butcher shops and burger kings just like Bonnie and Clyde until the police ran a sting where they locked the whole pack inside of seafood shop. The dogs all went to the pound. The boy, the alpha? He grew up to become NBA star Bojan Bogdanovich.*

Other than that, the Jazz lived and died by the 3. I preferred the ugly Bucks/Nets game than this.

2nd half he didn't assert himself at all. He was barely involved in the offense in the 4th.Didn't initiate many plays, didn't take many shots, wasn't thatbactive off ball. i think his only make in the 4th was a breakaway dunk off a steal.

Player of the game for the Clips - Reggie Jackson. Player of the game for the Jazz - Marcus Morris.

I didn’t see all that but it was clear part of their plan was beating us up. I rarely complain about that sort of thing bc I’m old and remember the Sloan Jazz

From what I can tell, the Jazz are a better team than the Clippers. Wait til they add Mike Conley to slice these defensive coverages and let Donovan ease up.

I know that Clippers fans exist but I refuse to believe that anyone likes the current team. The combination of front running, dirty BS and choking is one of a kind.

I think growing up during a bloody war in your city is a little tougher than growing up in Riverside.

sure the circumstances may be tougher but does that make the "person" tougher?....you can't just assume what someone is made of because of where they reside....that's a two way street

Mitchell, Clarkson, Bogdanovic and Gobert all had great games. Ingles too.

Yes, that one did make me angry. But I've come to expect that crap from him.

Clippers did generate some really good looks in the 4th Q..just couldn't make the shots which they were making earlier in the ssn...especially Morris

I was wrong -this team can win with two players going off, and it can win with a team effort as well. Fun to watch.


Best record in the league. 3 All Stars, DPOTY, 6MOTY, 6MOTY runner-up and COTY runner-up (3rd place). They have so many awards this season they should be a contender.
