    I don't think they are getting the respect they deserve from the press at times. I think they have as good a shot as anybody to win the Title.
    if you take away the 8 losses in 11 games when Chris Paul was out, they would have an even better record. Paul is as important to the Clips as any player in the league

    All I could keep thinking watching that game was it's too bad the Clippers couldn't pull off the Bledsoe/Butler for Garnett trade.

    If they did that, I think they'd be the favorites to win it all. I don't think they can beat OKC, the Spurs, AND the Heat/Pacers in succession. Their bigs, besides Griffin, are too weak and will get exposed the further they go in the playoffs.

    Ian struggled defensively tonight.

    Oh, and that stretch where Paul George singlehandedly brought the Pacers back was incredible. Just a fantastic stretch by George, offensively and defensively. He forced them to take Crawford out of the game.

    I think we really really missed Roy in the 1st quarter. Doesn't matter if he's hitting shots or not, the back and forth between him and West in the 1st quarter usually sets the tone for us and gets us off to a good start. There were several times in the first quarter where Ian didn't see a wide open cutter or shooter or one of th eother 4 didn't see Ian wide open. Aside from that and that stretch in the early fourth, we played very well.

    Entertaining game.

    Anybody wants to compare the Clippers bench salary and production with the Pacers bench? that is how you build a bench, minus Odom of course.

    tough to swallow. those TOs were bad in the first half. I thought Tyler looked scatter brained late in the game and CP was just too good. Oh well. On to the next.

    It's the kind of bench Larry Bird wanted a little bit.......... Crawford wouldn't sign with us though.

    hadn't seen the clips this year. they are really good and can attack from many spots.
    cp3 is unstoppable. despite what i saw in the game thread- he hasn't lost a step at all.
    20 turnovers is not going to win many games.
    things that bug me:
    this happens from time to time- hill and paul george have bad habits of chucking WAY too many 3's. when more than half of you shots are from downtown- that is not a good thing.
    paul george didn't even shoot a free throw until the 4th quarter- too much posey ball.

    nice comeback attempt without roy but down 17 pts against a talented clips in the 4th was simply too much.

    The good news is we get a pretty good chance to reset the bench next year.
    Hill/?
    Granger/Stephenson
    George/?(Green)
    West(hopefully)/?
    Hibbert/Ian

    He is definitely worth his contract. Like I said on the first page of the game thread, Hibbert would earn his pay check tonight and it would become obvious how valuable he is. We could do without Hill. Granger. West to some extent. But not Paul and Roy.

    Because we know what Granger is, we want Paul George to develop into the guy we want taking late game shots.... so I think that's why people are easier to accept it.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    I was talking about play calling and last minute decisions, Vinny sucks at it, call me crazy but I think they play good D because of CP3 and the veterans they have on the team not because of the coach, Vinny is an average coach and he is holding that team back in my opinion.

    George Hill's 0/3 FG and 0/2 FTs in the final minute was real frustrating.

    You can't put a price tag on Roy's presence in the paint. He just completely changes our defense.

    At least Danny looked pretty solid tonight. He seemed to be moving well and his shot was falling. That's the most positive thing I can take away from the game.

    I like PG and Lance as much as anyone, but they have to cut down on the turnovers. The good news is that most of them seem to be from boneheaded plays where they try to get "too cute". That can be stopped with discipline. But they can't be combining for eight turnovers if we want to go deep in the playoffs.

    Portland was trading Crawford last year for a pick, that pick was used to get Plumlee by the way.

    CP3 made some clutch lay ups in the last minute. I have to believe that he wouldn't do that with Hibbert in the game.

    How about that 2 minute stretch by Paul George? He smothered Crawford to the point that they had to take him out of the game and completely willed us back into the game. He reminds me a bit of CP3 in how he plays actually. He doesn't force much until he has to. He helps his team mates get involved and is unaggressive to fault. If he can learn to take over a game like that in the last few minutes he WILL BE a superstar level player.

    way too many turnovers. either clippers have the quickest hands or refs don't call reach ins.

    granger was a ghost in the second half for the most part. too many times he was just standing around.


    who else wanted to see plumlee tonight?

    Don't lump Lance in with PG this season. Lance has been pretty good with minimizing TOs, only 1.3/gm on the year. PG has been sloppy all year, but really bad these past few games.

    It's not like teams are playing great d against us and forcing TOs. Pacers have just been so careless with their passes. Just shouldn't be happening. Hopefully Vogel is getting on them about that.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Roy would undoubtedly have helped. Enough to win this game? Who knows. Roy's rim protection might have deterred some stuff, but the inability to stop the penetration of their point guards was so egregious in the first half, they still were getting or creating so many easy opportunities.

    Their PG combo of Paul & Bledsoe absolutely worked ours. I think that's a legit matchup problem for us against them. Additionally, imagine if they would have hit some of the many wide open threes they were getting in the first quarter or so.

    Is there a deeper team in the league than the Clips? The ball-hawking D in the first staff was as good as I've seen this season. Can they / do they do it night in and night out?

    I admire that we never gave up and I recognize Hibbert's absence is a legit factor. Not upset overall, but going along to the sloppy first half to an extent (not taking anything away from Clips' influence on it), we just were not sharp - felt like a notable lack of court awareness at times. Great example in second half is letting Barnes run from above the FT line down the lane uncontested for a put-back dunk.
    I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.
