I have a feeling this will be a close series with a bunch of games coming down to a few plays. There will be multiple technical fouls and an ejection.

Clippersfan86
04-20-2013, 01:34 AM
Most hilarious myth to me is somehow Memphis gets all this credit for an amazing defense but the Clippers don't for their top 5 defense. For example do people know that the Clippers held the Grizzlies to just 84 ppg over 4 games this year? Including a blowout win in which they held the Grizzlies to 73 ppg on 30 percent shooting (worst in franchise history) WITHOUT CHRIS PAUL?

It's not just the offense that can give Memphis problems. Sure we aren't as consistent defensively but when we do defend, we can defend as well as Memphis, while also scoring significantly better and having a much better bench. In other words.. Clippers win in 5 or 6, especially because of HCA.

I can't wait for these Grizzlies backers to eat crow again as they predict Grizzlies roughing up the Clips despite overwhelming evidence saying the Clippers own them. Memphis can't capitalize on the Clippers biggest weakness (3 point defense), while the Clippers do indeed hurt the Grizzlies in a multitude of ways.

lol, please
04-20-2013, 01:37 AM
Grizzlies probably take this game, but I am rooting for the Clips, because the Dubs match up well with them, so if we see them down the road, Golden State will be ready.

Clippersfan86
04-20-2013, 01:49 AM
Something random and funny. A renowned psychic on sports radio in LA just said that the Grizzlies will actually win game 1 tomorrow but the Clippers will win the next 4 to win the series. If that does happen.. that would be the craziest **** ever.

I don't care about the clippers or what they do if we play our game we will win its that simple its all mental is all about hustle and 50-50 balls something Eric Blesode kills us in.

This should be a good series. I think if our ball movement is good and ZBO doesn't force the issue too much the grizz can win. Timely outside shots will need to be made. People underestimate how improved Conley is, he can hold his own vs Paul

Do you know Conley shot just 35 percent against CP3 this year and 20 percent against Eric Bledsoe? His overall shooting percentage against the Clippers in 4 games this year is 30 percent (the worst against any team). In other words.. Conley ain't gonna do shi* just like he didn't last year. Gasol will be the guy who hurts us if anybody along with Zbo maybe.

Going with the Clips in 7.

Love how the Grizz play, grinding teams down, but I just don't know if they'll score enough points.

The problem for the Clips is that they might get worn down by the Grizz going into round 2. Only question is who is going to score for Memphis on the perimeter? Conley and who? Bayless, Prince, Pondexter have to knock down shots

Well of course Memphis will bang us up just like last year... the key is finishing the series in 5 or 6 games MAX to give a few extra days rest. Last year they had only a day or so of rest before the Spurs who were coming off 9 days rest. If they can prove Vegas right (Clips in 5) then they will have a week of rest to heal up before round 2.

I am pretty sure 99.9% of the NBA forum said we won't even make the playoffs. The Lakers have 45 wins, you have 56...just 11 games. Those 11 games have no meaning when you take into consideration all the injuries and coaching changes we had to face. If your sorry *** Clippers faced as many injuries as we have, you wouldn't even come close to 56 wins.

If your sorry *** Clippers faced as many injuries as we have, you wouldn't even come close to 56 wins.

If the Lakers had the worst injury problems of any team this year outside of the Wolves, the Clippers are still top 5. All of our key guys have missed multiple games. CP3 missed about a month. Billups missed about 3 months. Griffin missed a game or two. Butler's missed a couple weeks. Our bench including Crawford for a couple weeks was rotating in and out. So if the Clippers were as healthy as most other contenders were save the Spurs they would have more like 60+ wins. Remember before the CP3 injury the Clippers held a league best 33-9 record.

Point wasn't to make fun of the Lakers but more to point out your idiocy in nitpicking the Clippers while your team doesn't get much criticism but rather constant excuses like this one.

Pau was out for weeks
Hill has been out for 4 months
Nash is constantly in and out
Dwight missed a few weeks
Kobe, well yeah.

This is not, "day-to-day" injuries. These are injuries that take the guys out of the game for a while. Even if they comeback, they never comeback 100% because the injuries always nag at them.

The Clippers are a team full of floppers, I am not sure how you can argue against that. I did not trash your team, I just stated a fact.

Clippersfan86
04-20-2013, 07:09 PM
Hill is a role player, Nash is a shell of himself and Dwight although out of shape was healthy enough to play big minutes. Kobe got injured in game 81 of the year so how did that affect you when you won the Spurs game? Bottom line is most overhyped team in NBA history became the most overrated one. Why would CP3 miss a month straight with a day to day knee injury? Wake up kid..

That's the Grizz's biggest weakness, they just can't hit open shots from the perimeter. If they had like Korver or someone that could spread the floor, my goodness, look out.

The Clips don't really need to guard the 3 point line at all.

If Ed Davis can learn to get a more reliable mid jumper and hit fts then it won't be so bad when poppa bear stops.

Haha true. But it just looks like Conley lost his confidence for some reason. Still, only game 1. Lot of time to make up for it

Not really. Maybe in years past. We have been playing great ball and they live to come from behind to win. You must not see many of their games. I haven't seen any Titans games much either

Not really. Conley is off tonight. Prince ain't contributing and not getting enough from the bench. Bench matters. Big time.

Rudy is highly inefficient. We are a better overall team without him. The only advantage he would add is he got superstar calls once in a while

In regular season maybe, lets watch the rest of the series and see how well the Grizz do.

By the way, I'm rooting for the Grizz to win, just like I did last season.

The game score starting to look worse than it was. Maybe we're trying to give them a false confidence going into game two???

Oh well. We'll see if those imposters in dark blue turn themselves over and the real Grizz show up.

They lost to an inferior Clipper team with him. Don't really see what this would prove.

Sorry my friend. This is the Clippers starting to feel their oats. Happened in Memphis last year but the Grizz found themselves and fought back from 3-1. Who knows??? They just don't have the fire in the belly lately. Really bad timing!!

More importantly I have watched them the last few years against the Clips, and these are the areas they struggle in the 4th quarter. They have to learn to finish games against this team if they ever want to advance.

I was pleasantly surprised with the way CP3 played. He's known to wear down in the playoffs. Last year he struggled in the playoffs. He's already off the an excellent start. If he keeps this up, it's a sweep.

He didn't struggle on his own. He was putting up an insane 23 ppg, 11 apg, 5 rpg, 3 spg on great efficiency in the first 3 games before his injury mid game 4. In other words in the first 3 games he was the best player in the entire playoffs. Then he re injures that bad groin pull and the rest of the playoffs was shut down big time.

Thats what wear down means. CP3 always plays brilliantly in the playoffs, until he gets hurt. Which happens pretty much every other year it seems.

A groin pull has nothing to do with wearing down really. He injured it twice in the season including right before it ended and simply came back too early. It wasn't a fatigue issue based on what we heard from the team and CP3. If anything what you guys are saying describes him as injury prone which to me is more accurate than him just burns out.

Nonetheless.. it goes without saying that CP3's health is going to determine this playoff run because he's our best player and a legendary playoff performer.

Maybe, but how does it have nothing to do with wearing down, when the act of wearing down is the body breaking down?

And yes it gos without saying, thats why I didn't see the need for the post. Im just thankful CP3 didn't have to go all out like he did last year just for us to be in this position.
