Spurs in 5. If Clippers were healthy, it would go 6.

However, Blake has knee issues and CP has hip issues.

Then remember that Vinny isn't half the coach that Pops is... it won't end well for Clipper fans.

The Spurs will run them down, tire them out, run roughshod over them when the Clippers run out of steam, while Pops out coaches him out of every time out.

Clippers are serious underdogs on this one.

Lets give some credit to VDN for once. Yeah hes probably the worst coach still in the playoffs, but playing Kmart over Griffin showed some balls which he lacked before. But good luck vs. the Spurs.

I'd go spurs in 5. LAC got banged up some and expended some energy so i think spurs will get em in 5. Spurs are just on a different level. I think even if my grizz faced them (because i feel grizz match up better with the spurs then the clips) would take it to 6 max, but prob 5

clippers in 6. Chris Paul can shut down Parker and the Spurs need him to make their offense go

JasonJohnHorn
05-13-2012, 07:10 PM
Spurs don't drop turnovers like a lot of other teams, they take care of the ball, so they won't be giving away a lot of fast-break points to the Clippers. And coupled with that they have a great defensive set that likely won't be allowing a lot of lobs and such (not that that is all the Clippers have). But lets face it, the Clippers are young and like to run, and the Spurs are well coach and can dictate the pace of a game, which is going to take the Clippers out of their style of play. I see this going to the Spurs in 5 or 6 games.

Spurs sweep.

Just wait until this series starts, Deandre Jordan will not get on the floor because they'll hack-a-Jordan him off the ball until he gets taken out of the game...especially with the Spurs being 12-13 deep, they'll always have a guy to foul him on the floor. Similarly, I expect them to do the same thing to both Reggie and Blake Griffin.

The Clips' achilles heel is free throw shooting from the post position and the Spurs will destroy them because of it.

How does hacking win games?

You obviously don't remember how the Suns were destroyed by them a few years back when Shaq was in the middle.

The Clippers rely on their athleticism and hustle from the post guys to make a lot of their offense go. Their second best player cannot consistently hit an outside jumper, is limited to one concrete move on offense and shoots free throws at a 50% clip. The rest of the big guys (Jordan - awful, Reggie - pretty bad, Martin - below average) also share that last inability which will cost them as you won't be able to keep them on the floor, especially now with the Spurs being arguably the best offense in the league.

Basically...cancel out Griffin, Jordan, and Reggie for the series...you're expecting a banged up Chris Paul and a few shooters to take out the best overall team in the league from top to bottom.

Not happening, which is why I desperately wanted the Griz to advance.

The only teams left that can beat the Spurs in a seven game series are the Thunder, Lakers and Heat.

The Clippers may win a game, but I kinda doubt it..... no offense to Clipper fans, but the Spurs have the best half court offense in the playoffs and that is what usually separates the contenders from the pretenders. Yes, your reading me, I won't even be predicting my Thunder over them if they advance unless something radical happens to slow them down or the Thunder show me more consistency. I'm sorry but I'm predicting the Spurs in a sweep with 3 of the games decided by double digits. Don't waste your time beating me up if I'm wrong because if they pull this one off I will be WAY to busy celebrating :dance: .... sorry kdspurman

LOL they also lost to the Spurs every other year Shaq wasnt there. And when Shaq was on the court, thats actually when they kept up with the Spurs, Duncan went nuts whenever Shaq wasnt out there. So thats not really helping your point. In fact the Suns defense allowed 101.5PTSx48 with Shaq on the court and 116.4 without. The offense was also more efficient with Shaq but it was much less influential. His +16.8 Differential was one of the highest on the team, behind only Amare....... you were saying?

Im not seeing how they wont be able to keep them on the floor. Its almost as if you dont know even a 50% shooter can score at a 1PT per possession clip. Its not as crippling as your pretending to know.

:laugh2: no apologies needed, this is the playoffs. Although I think and OKC/SAs WCF would be a pleasure to watch. Limited-no hollywood drama, no fights or dumb quotes from either end. However, I don't think it will that easy this round. Clips showed a ton of heart and toughness to win today

These aren't the spurs of yesteryear who relied on the inside game of Duncan. The Spurs defense isn't as good as it has been in years past and their offense relies on Tony Parker running and outside shooting. The clippers are more athletic and faster they take it at home in game 6.

Chronz

Spurs should be favored, but as a fan Im glad we survived against the Grizz, and to be honest if I had to choose a first round matchup, we would have rather faced the Spurs than the Grizz. So to everyone saying the Grizz would have been a better matchup, I feel the same way for the Clips. Glad to not be playing Lakers yet.

Spurs were top 5 in points in the paint and Timmy is still putting up 15/9 in 28 minutes.

By the way, over the last 15 games they were 4th in defensive efficiency in the league. Their defense has improved and is clicking on all cylinders now.

It's not all about Parker. They have arguably the best offensive efficiency in the half court by running a ton of pick and rolls. you put Manu in and he produces just as well. No way do we rely on outside shooting, you're getting us confused with last years Spurs.

Not true. Sometimes they do it just to better control the pace of the game, and do it while they're up so the opponent doesn't have a good offensive rhythm. It's the equivalent of calling a timeout if an opponent is on a run too. Kills momentum even tho it's a risk

Wow dude haha. You obviously haven't paid much attention to them this year.

They make 3's like crazy, parker and duncan's pick and roll is hard to defend, and others.

Control the pace of the game, I suppose but what kind of control is it if all they are doing is allowing the Clips to set up their halfcourt defense and putting the Spurs closer to the penalty. Its a losing strat that does more harm than good. Trust me, Im HOPING they have to resort to hacking intentionally.

You have to be selective, only when the opponent is about to finish a high% play, thats the only time hacking is a winning strat, like when Shaq had the ball 2ft from the hoop. Even then it still helps the other team defensively.

Na I agree. I just was implying they don't only do it when they're getting beat. Like if they're up they might do it to keep Paul from going nuts.

It worked well like with Phoenix cause they weren't a great defensive team. Clips have improved defensively, so it'll be tough. Pop will be selective with it i'm sure. I see him using it when they're down before anything.

I'm picking the Clippers but understand it would be a huge upset if they can win. Going with my heart on this one.

When you have Chris Paul a lot of the Clippers weaknesses might not be so glaring. The Spurs obviously have the experience edge but Paul can cancel a lot of that out himself. I can honestly see he and Bledsoe giving Parker fits. From there the Clippers are certainly the more talented team and may not struggle as much against the Spurs execution as the Spurs struggle against the Clippers athleticism. IF there is a chance for the Clippers that would be it.

Clippers bench is phenomenally deep... Popovich must've been crapping himself watching the fourth quarter of the game 7 against the Grizzlies.

On top of that, CP3 will completely outclass Tony Parker, who is the focal point of the Spurs offense. Griffin is very physical inside, which gives Duncan problems, and the Clippers tendency and ability to run and score bunches of points in transition works heavily against what the Spurs want to do.

Ok, well, we all know the Spurs are awesome. Just don't be too surprised to see the Clippers take one of the first two games in San Antonio, and then it is a very, very tough series after that.

ONE game, the bench does work, one game. I will gladly take the Spurs bench over the Clips, as well as the Spurs starters over Clips. The Spurs have shown consistency over the season whether its the starters or the bench. I can't see the Clips shutting down the Spurs on defense and will also take Spurs well improved def, since the all-star break, than Clips

I really think that there is a high chance that the Spurs sweep.

Nothing about this match up gives me the idea that the Clippers have a chance.

-Each of the clippers main advantages against most other teams are cancelled out with SA. I knew the Spurs would sweep Utah and I'm not trying to say Utah is as bad/good as LAC but this is just another match up where one team has a majority of the advantages.

San Antonio has the far superior coach, the deepest team in the league, playoff experience, a PG to match up with Paul, a reliable back-to-the-basket post player, a legit go-to scorer, 3 point shooter,speed, defense...

the only aspect where they may be lacking is with size. But do we really trust Deandre Jordan to have that big of a consistent impact?

-Don't get me wrong, the Clips have great talent but I still don't trust there half-court offense and Pop isn't dumb enough to let CP3 beat him on his own late in games.

Hopefully it is a better series than I am projecting though.

The Spurs will make LA run a halfcourt offense and they will have no chance in it.

Duncan may be old and broken down but he can still show Blake a thing or two about taking it to the bank!

Blair is a rich man's Reggie Evans.

Parker is simply going to make Jordan look silly with his floaters.

Paul can't match the late game heroics of Ginobli.

And most importantly, Pops will coach circles around Vinny D.

*These are my opinions. Do not freak out PSD. They are however based on watching a lot of basketball.

I do think we may see Duncan expose Griffin in this series. The dude may be old and on the wrong side of his career, but I think he's got enough left in the tank for one more run.

It should be a fun match up to focus in on...

maturity, experience, fundamentals vs. youth, incredible athleticism, raw talent

You have to account for match ups. The Clippers match up well against the Spurs. Before the first round last year everyone thought the Spurs would have an easy time with Memphis due to their INEXPERIENCE and the Spurs coaching and half court play. How did that end up? In my opinion people only look at the recent trend of play rather than be big pictured. The Spurs are a great team but by no means are they as good as people think and unbeatable. Like I said before the WEST IS WIDE OPEN. The Clippers play elite teams good.

Clippers in 6.

Anyone who think Clips can make a run, just stop. Spurs in 5-6. Griffin and the pick-and-roll will be gone. And CP3 will not DOMINATE TP9, Parker will keep CP active and on his heels on defense which Conley couldn't. Spurs have the COMPLETE team, there winning it all this year.

Eric Bledsoe will play a vital role in stopping TP along with Chris. Bledsoe is a beast defensively. Backup PG is the Spurs weakness so I think we have an edge at the 1.

Clippers won't get out and run a lot Spurs turn the ball over the 2nd best in the league



All you hi-light reel watchers think the Clippers just run and gun? They only do this **** when they believe it's advantageous, most of the time the Clippers try to slow things down as Paul likes to take his time to decipher the D ROFL.

ONE game, the bench does work, one game. I will gladly take the Spurs bench over the Clips, as well as the Spurs starters over Clips. The Spurs have shown consistency over the season whether its the starters or the bench. I can't see the Clips shutting down the Spurs on defense and will also take Spurs well improved def, since the all-star break, than Clips

Match-ups prevail over consistency come playoff time. They were a consistent squad last year, look what happened when they played Memphis?

DJ will have a far greater impact in this series than the last.

Exactly. He gives the Spurs fits. He will have a better time because Duncan and Splitter are not as rugged and strong as the Memphis bigs.

i dont understand the logic of some people. Before the 1st round, there was so much talk about how memphis would beat SA in the 2nd round..now that its the clippers that advanced, they have no chance? Where's the sense in that?

your absolutely right. I'd take Clippers over Spurs in terms of executing efficiently in the half court any day. That's an easy one

Jordan is a scrub! If it was a time for a guy with his size and atheletism to come thru for his team, it was the Memphis series. The guy did nothing noteworthy. Now he's going to play much better? VDN would be wise to use Kenyon Martin, BG, and Reggie Evans!

I'm not saying the Clips aren't a very good team, they are. Any team that can come back from 27 down and take a game 7 on the road should be feared and respected. Once you have a certain level of "appropriate fear" you hit the floor and take care of business! Period!! The Clips have Chris Paul and we have Tony Parker. In a vaccum, Chris Paul is better, but for the Spurs, I'd take Tony Parker. What other position on the floor isn't neutral or an advantage for the Spurs??

Can we please stop the myth? The Spurs limped into the playoffs with Manu's arm not working properly, and Duncan on one knee. They had a 4-8 record in the last 12 before the Playoffs. That was a Spurs team that just had nothing going into the playoffs.

This years Squad destroyed the League in the last 20+ Regular season Games with an offense that was so far ahead of the pack it's not even funny.


Look I'm not sure that this will be an easy series, but to look at last years Spurs squad and act like it's the same is just stupid.

I'm starting to believe that people on the internet have no clue about reality! They make things up to prove a point that they have without actually looking at the total situation. When we win this series, it's going to be more excuses and other bs!!

When the Patriots acquired Randy Moss I bet a friend $100 that they could go undefeated....Before the season started! They lost the Super Bowl, but I cashed in on that one! I had bragging rights for the entire NFL season! I hope many of these posters don't bet their hard earned cash in Vegas! They'd find out quickly that they are very WRONG on alot of their opinions!!!

I'm not claiming they are better in the half court. I am stating that people who form ignorant opinions don't have a clue about the clippers. All they see are hi-light reels of Dunks by Blake and they think we are run and gun. Get a clue before being so presumptuous.

The Clippers don't have a system. That may be a flaw, however they have a lot of heart on this team. It will be a good series and I honestly think it'll go either way. Of course I gotta pick the Clipps in what I see as a coin flip.

Jordan does better against big men like Duncan and Splitter. He has a tough time with guys that can push him around on the low block, exemplified in the Memphis series.

Your right, maybe they aren't just a run a gun team which is obvious because of CP3. But I think you're fooling yourself if you really think they prefer to play like that or getting out and running tbh...

My point is nothing is given and match-ups are big. I didn't say this years Spurs team sucked. If Paul didn't screw up the inbound pass we would have the season series at 2-1. It's not as clear cut Spurs as most of these people think. Lakers were favoured against Dallas last year, what happened there? It's not about comparing a certain team from different years, it's the dynamic that playoff match-ups are more vital than how good one was in the regular season.

They pick their spots when to run and gun. Like I said they have no set way of playing. From my experience as a Clippers fan they slow thinks down more than run. Paul definitely would rather slow things down but he is not averse or against running. BG and DJ would rather run. Those are just the facts.

Having a system/set way of playing is what will win you championships. Not necessarily free-styling it as you go... See last years finals.

Yeah, there's a lot of truth to that. I for one always praised Thibs and Pops for their system.

However, the Clippers style is inconsistent but it has good results exemplified by our play against the elite teams in the regular season.

I think the series is a coin-flip. I'll be the Homer and take the Clippers that's it.

No harm there. That's what we're supposed to do as fans :)

Best of luck... Either way, it should be a great series

I just think the Clippers often look a bit confused and unsure what to run and where to be on the floor, and on defense they seem to blow assignments pretty often (the series against Memphis was sometimes brutal).

But yeah let's just hope for an interesting Series and as a Homer I pick the Spurs. I don't give any predictions about how long it will go, in my opinion it will depend on what Clippers team shows up.

No way the Clippers pull this one out. Spurs are destroying everything in their path and an injured Griffin and Paul wont help matters. Too many weapons off the bench and Tony Parker is on fire. First two games to SA, Gm 3 to LA, Gm 4 to SA, Gm 5 to LA, Spurs close it out in LA gm 6.

I give it a 9, even though it scored high on the difficulty scale, CP3's timing is a bit off and he just didn't sell the pained facial expression strongly enough, I didn't buy it, BUT I went ahead and gave it the 9 because Chris always has a great dismount:

I think I will have to come to CP3's defense on this one, this is no flop, this is natural reaction to Haywood's arm pit odor. See the natural reflex of Paul's head like someone that just got a dose of smelling salts, see him staggering after getting that full blast whiff. Further evidence, look at Griffin's reaction, holding his nose as he walks away in disgust. That arm pit didn't just have odor, it had O-DARE! It even seems to stagger the ref....
