Spurs playing b2b in Memphis without Duncan/Manu/Leonard and look better than last night at home, nearly full strength against a short handed heat team.

Yea Splitter got some bad calls against him and Boris too. They were in the penalty very early and with some bogus calls. But.....

Pop's decisions, & rotations have just been off lately. the teams decision making has been very poor... TP forced up a shot over 2 guys with Bonner wide open at the top of the key/3 point line, not communicating and leaving Conley open for 3, Neal shooting a mid range shot on a 2-1 fast break when Jack was in front...

Something is off with this team lately. Not sure what it is. Had a golden opportunity to steal one tonight and blew it

Joshtd1
04-01-2013, 10:42 PM
A lot of it comes with Pop's decision making. Why not call a timeout when your the best or one of the best play callers, and draw up a damn play. Having Neal on the court on a crucial defensive play..having Green on Conley to end the game.

Yea the Spurs needed to exectute too, they had some terrible decisions. Just frustrating to wactch a loss, regardless of the circumstances.

04-01-2013, 10:45 PM
It's almost the complete opposite of last year, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Last night they were clicking and winning games easily heading into the playoffs. This year, it's been a struggle but maybe it'll work out for them and they'll get it together.

Pop is usually on top of this stuff, I'm not sure what's going on with him. I know he went on record to say he didn't want any long winning streak like last year again, but man...

The execution and beautiful ball movement we're accustomed too hasn't been there.

I think we're probably done. This year is a nightmare, too many injuries, too old, no coaching, and no depth. Nash seemingly gets hurt every other game now. Pau is still not there after being out for 6 weeks, Kobe is paying hurt... the list goes on.

We're in a lose-lose situation. Make the playoffs, and we get rocked in the 1st round because everyone is hurt and nobody is getting younger. Not making the playoffs will be so sad, but honestly, if it means getting rid of D'antoni, cool, I'm for it.

David West is so clutch sometimes.

CP3 is just a genius. That was a drawn up play in the TO. CP3 said if they score we can get it w/ a wedge 2, that was it right there. He drew the foul on Hansborough.

Clips need to be careful. Getting that 5th spot and maybe playing Denver at the Pepsi Center isn't a great idea.

04-02-2013, 01:34 AM
Clippers are in quicksand. Our team hasn't really beaten anybody that matters for a good 2-3 months and has been a .500 team pretty much in that time. Then you have CP3 who has shown up maybe a couple times all year in games vs "contenders". If we can't trust CP3 to step up in the big games now... how will he with playoff intensity? Last year's CP3 was so much better at stepping up, to the point to where I don't recognize him anymore.

Blake injury or not has been a scrub the last 5 or 6 games and been quite frankly a whiny, soft pu**y. The minute a call goes against him or he gets roughed up.. he hangs his head and *****es out. If he really wants to become an all time great PF he needs to grow a pair.

Clippersfan86
04-02-2013, 01:35 AM

Unless Denver and Memphis suddenly cool off and Clippers win all 7 remaining games that's the likely scenario. Good news is that will likely be a loss in 4 or 5 games and Vinny will no doubt be canned.

It's all for naught though as I said. Our team this year can't close games for **** after being one of the best at it last year. I have zero confidence in CP3 or the team to close games out or comeback anymore. The MO for our team is get punched in the mouth early and down a lot... then make a big run, only to blow it in the end.

That's where we differ completely. I still have a lot of confidence in CP3 and would still rather him closing games than any other NBA player. I think we showed tons of heart climbing back tonight. I don't know why they are playing so bad but to say they are trying to get punched in the mouth and CP3 can't be counted on are things I don't agree with.

Possibly, but honestly the playoffs cant start soon enough. These are the dog days of the NBA, dont really care who we're seeded against at this point. Its clear we will have to win another series on the road, which is sad but big picture wise, we've had a great season. Its important to close a season out strong, but not exactly a prerequesite for contention. Dont listen to CN's classification of "big games".

The worst part is CP3 didn't even have a part in our comeback really. It was our relentless bench that did 90+ percent of the work. If anything CP3 blew it with a bricked shot, turnover and passing up wide open 3 to send game into OT as well as the wide open 18 foot elbow jumper. What I'm basically saying is tonight CP3 may actually have prevented us from coming back all the way.

What I meant about punched in the mouth is every game lately we let teams jump on us and hit first before we make a comeback. Hungry teams with a sense of urgency hit first. Blake and CP3 have been *** lately and quite frankly look like they don't care. I'm all for shutting them down and starting our bench the rest of the year until they learn to respect the game and the team.

I guess every NBA analyst, our own team of Ralph and Mike are also idiots when it comes to saying "big games". At this point every game is a big game obviously. To get the 3 seed back we likely need to win 6 of the last 7 and even that might not be enough. So yes all of these are "big games". The big games I was talking about though recently is other western conference playoff teams.

I know you like tangible evidence but everybody who follows sports understands there is sports psychology involved. You need to show teams that you own them and that you can beat them. You can't let teams think you aren't sh**. Which right about now I'm 100 percent sure nobody is afraid of the Clippers. We have zero psychological edge over anybody.

Everybody who follows sports...... that line doesn't carry any sway with me. Like I stated in the post, its obviously better to close seasons out strong, but hardly a prerequesite.

Your right about one thing tho, I need some sort of proof. Show me an example of this phenomena you speak of, I can find many more to the contrary. Its why I dont buy your theory.

A lot of teams have limped into the playoffs and come out well. I can't remember off the top of my head but it seems every year there is a team I think is set up to get blown out of the water and they contend. What's really head scratching about what's going on now is that we should be set up well for this time of the season. We haven't had to play our starters big minutes and it's not paying off. We're knicked up anyway. Blake looks really slow I think he's hurting pretty bad. He has lost a lot of his explosiveness and is a very oridinary player without. We need him to get right.

I'm not sure what CP'3 deal is either and I will agree with CF that he hasn't been his best. I'm just hoping that goes away in the playoffs. I think one thing that has hurt is Billups being in and out of the lineup. With all the depth we have we haven't really had a consistant lineup since Billups came back. Willie is doing fine and if Chauncey can't make it all the back we should probably just shut him down and try to get some chemistry back. Overall it does look like an up hill battle at this point but yea it's been a lot of fun an I'm not going to lose sight of that!

If you need physical proof of what psychology is.. I'm not sure I can help you. You're a fan of Michael Jordan right? You don't think the mental edge he had which obviously can't be measured played a HUGE part of his greatness? You're downplaying the mental aspect of the game and you hear any great players in interviews they ALWAYS say the mental aspect is most of the battle.

Sure the context is a little different but the point is the mental, psychological part of the game is just as important, if not more than the tangible things. You don't think it weighs on a team that they haven't beaten a top team for 2-3 months outside of the one Pacers win? I mean I've heard players talk about it in postgame just this week. CP3 was asked about it and said "I wish I knew the answer" and was clearly bothered by it.

There's an article complete with a chart that basically showed last year that going into the playoffs hot or cold doesn't mean a lot, so you do have a valid point. My thing is that measures wins or losses. It doesn't measure injuries, attitude, chemistry issues etc. Our team isn't just losing or exhausted. Our team to me at least looks like they don't care and our stars haven't dominated for a long time.

No Im asking for proof of your opinion that these games are of huge importance. Any example of these carry over effects into the post season. Like why should I think its a prerequesite? Ive seen plenty of teams stumble into the playoffs or even in later rounds, and do better than teams that entered on fire. What happened to the mental edge then?

Thing is, you have no proof that when you account for those variables, that the odds tip in your favor. Are we suppose to believe you know the contextual meanings behind those decades of research? Ive crunched the basic numbers from every playoff series before, youd be surprised how irrelevant your "big games" are.

04-02-2013, 02:19 AM
Why do we need to crunch numbers for something like the mental aspect of basketball though? We can agree to disagree because I think psychology is a HUGE part of pro sports. The best players of all time happen to be the mentally strongest and most fierce and it's not coincidence.

Cracka last year he was tops. Since all star break something has changed. Still talks a lot but seems mentally deflated a lot of times. He used to never make excuses but lately 2 or 3 times after terrible games by him and losses he's calling out refs. I mean if you play great fine but if you shoot 2-14 etc or have more turnovers than assists, don't call out refs. CP3 is having maybe the worst stretch of his career right now. These turnovers and atrocious shooting games are becoming more common.

Why do we need to crunch numbers for something like the mental aspect of basketball though? We can agree to disagree because I think psychology is a HUGE part of pro sports. The best players of all time happen to be the mentally strongest and most fierce and it's not coincidence.
The cop-out your making is that your mistaking them for solely numbers instead of real life instances. For example if a team is heading into the post season on fire and has an easy time advancing in early rounds, its fair to say they have a mental edge or momentum if you will, yet they can somehow lose to a team that struggled. Or another example of psychology, say you swept the season series vs a specific opponent, you would claim to have a mental edge then there as well. Ive seen you suggest as much when you refer to "big games" carrying over to the post season, yet there is no correlation to it carrying over. In essence, my argument isn't that psychology doesnt exists, just that you oversell its importance. I dont buy your theories on that, not with rebuttels revolving around "anyone who watches..." type arguments.


Chronz all I'm saying is team morale absolutely is affected by an inability to hang with top teams anymore. Clippers haven't beaten a top 6 western conference team since Jan 14th.
I would expect it to. Its this line I dont really see the importance of:

Clippers haven't beaten a top 6 western conference team since Jan 14th.

Seems rather arbitrary and mundane to me. Why am I suppose to care about this?

The ONLY big game I will admit to, is April 13th. I have a feeling we are destined for a rematch vs Memphis, I dont care if we win or lose that game, I just want to see us compete. Thats the only litmus test I have because of its proximity to the playoffs and our actual real opponent.

Memphis is a stronger team now

Im not even considered a REAL Heat fan and I even love the guy. He just does exactly whats needed for the team. Sure he makes some dumb mistakes sometime but never with the game on the line.

The only problem I have with him is he doesnt know how to throw a proper alley oop and how hard is it throw a lob to LeBron James? Lol Norris has that part down. I like how they are completely different players and give the Heat a 1-2 punch from the pg position even though it is one of the team's weaker positions.

Norris = quickness and defense (and lob throwing ability!)
Chalmers = shooting and clutchness

Interesting. I think it would be the Bulls because outside of Noah/Deng they don't really have any "stars." I don't really think Rose is coming back this year and we all know you need stars to win in the playoffs. However, thibs is a great defensive coach so I wouldn't put anything past him.

The Celtics are also greatly coached and I think the games in Boston would give the Celts a huge advantage compared to the Bulls. Also you never know what Pierce and KG can pull off with most likely their last run together. They're a pretty proud group of guys.

Regardless, I think either matchup would be really fun to watch.

with or w/o Rose I'd rather see Boston. They are for the taking. And we got their number.

Bulls are a bad matchup but in a playoff series I don't think they can beat anyone, they just don't have the firepower to get by in a 7 game series. They lost to a crappy 8 seed Philly team without Rose after beating the Heat and playing admirably well in the regular season. I think you can get by during the reg season with injuries like that but when a team can gameplan for a 7 game series that lack of talent ain't gonna fly. Playing hard and executing won't get you by in the playoffs without talent.

Fantastic analysis. What is the award with that accomplishment?

I had to step my game up to match your 'Melo dropped 50 and we still almost won' analysis. That was brilliant stuff.

Interesting. I think it would be the Bulls because outside of Noah/Deng they don't really have any "stars." I don't really think Rose is coming back this year and we all know you need stars to win in the playoffs. However, thibs is a great defensive coach so I wouldn't put anything past him.

The Celtics are also greatly coached and I think the games in Boston would give the Celts a huge advantage compared to the Bulls. Also you never know what Pierce and KG can pull off with most likely their last run together. They're a pretty proud group of guys.

Regardless, I think either matchup would be really fun to watch.


The way little Nate is going now and Gooden and Noah and Deng and Heinrich, I don't want to see them till we gain momentum. That's why I want Boston.

To be fair we beat you guys without our top guns and we beat you guys without your top guns. We have outplayed you guys for 13 of 16 quarters.

I guess the Knicks should not have any problems advancing to the championship game.

good game. proud of the fight the guys had out there today, just too many mistakes near the end. and i have no clue why spo allowed haslem to be matched up with anthony so often. anyways, i'm getting a kick out of the knicks fans in here lol...such cockiness and high hopes that will be crushed come playoff time.

Its all about tonight, tomorrow can wait. This is typical heat-knick rivalry behavior, its what I love about it. It goes back and forth. The problem is when people on here start taking personal. There's nothing wrong with a little trash talk between us. I do it a lot but after the fact I have no problem holding meaningful conversations with some of my rivals on here. I say some because its those that understand there's no hard feelings.

I agree with you to a certain extent. But the Celtics have shown for several years now that they coast in the regular season with their age and then turn it up in the playoffs. They may be old but they've got plenty of experience. I would be a little more scared of the Celts than the Bulls to be honest.

Is that the only way to describe it?

How about one of the worst offensive teams without a guy who can create their own shot in a 7 game series vs 2 surefire HOFers and one guy who averages close to 30ppg on 50% shooting against us for his career with about 5 game winners sprinkled in there, and a coach who notoriously rapes our soul late in games?

This game is stupid.

Well the EASTern teams play with more fire maybe I have to lower my standards and expectations. EAST teams have the tougher players and better rivals.

Yea because thats how the NBA works. I'm sure the Spurs were saying 'Miami needed a miracle 3 from Allen to beat us with out Manu, TP, Duncan, Green and Leonard' too. How'd that work out for them?

It wasn't Allen. :hide:

see this is what I see. Who's stopping Melo? Pierce? Jeff Green is gimpy, KG is old, we have Chandler and K-Mart on the boards and a better bench. The only thing Boston has better than us is a wing stopper and coach.

Chicago, this team has figured our offense out, Melo starts cold vs their D and it could get ugly. Their bench is deep on the boards, their depth on the wing defense is deep, they can run. I can't want to see that team first.

Good point... A win is a win. Jackson was out too that game btw but that's neither here nor there.

But I'd be proud if I were a heat fan for the way they're playing without their 2 superstars. And it's not like the Knicks haven't beaten Miami with everyone there, so that's not necessarily relevant. Shorthanded teams tend to play harder, I know that for a fact.

Face it, this was a lose/lose game for the Knicks pretty much but they got the W in the standings.

It was one of your guys that start the trash talking. It really has nothing to do with us being "salty" about losing a meaningless regular season game. I was surprised that we were even in this game going into the fourth quarter ,so I am not sure why you are attacking me.

I'm almost 100% with you on that, but I feel like I've been counting out Pierce and KG every year starting in 2010 when they went to game 7 of the finals. Last year they did me dirty again. I just can't do it yet. I do like the matchup though just not sure if I do over a worse Bulls team than the one that got worked by Philly last year.

Be careful what you wish for is all I'm saying. That Boston team is quirky. I agree this year it looks good for you guys against them match-up wise but Boston plays at another level in the post-season. They proved it last year by taking the Heat to the brink. Then again, they don't have Rondo or Ray anymore. So we'll see what happens.

Regardless, I just want a good series. I could care less who wins but I feel like there isn't really that much drama in the East for the 1st round. Maybe Pacers v Bulls? Knicks v Celts better deliver the goods.

Boston's confidence is killed they have no Rondo and even when KG comes back their confidence will be shattered. They are an easy team to beat. Jason Terry is a straight hasbeen, and their other guys are nothing special. If they had Ray maybe it would be different.

This forum is ****ing hilarious :laugh2:

To answer someone's question from earlier, personally I'd love the Bucks to creep up to 7 and get to play them. No offense to the Bucks, I just don't think they can beat the Knicks in a 7 game series. I really don't like playing either Boston or Chicago. Boston is playoff tested and Pierce owns us, but we REALLY don't match up well with Chicago as they have the size to counter act Tyson and KMart. That said, I'd probably rather play Chicago if DRose isn't back. Leaves them without a true go to guy when it matters most. Either one is gonna be a tough series though. Both probably 6 games at least
