Grizz tie it up today, I think.

Definitely possible but I think Clippers go up 3-1. After practice yesterday the players were still fuming and look incredibly focused. They SHOULD be pissed off for the horseshit effort they gave. Sad thing for the Grizzlies is they played amazing, Clippers played horrendous and STILL had multiple chances to steal it if they didn't give up timely buckets. Like cutting it from 17 to 6 mid 4th quarter or w/e only to give up a couple wide open 3's.

I think the Grind House will help us once again super low scoring game I also think the coach did a great job putting Tony Allen on Crawford and CP3 putting bigger defenders on them and not Bayless who got burn everything time.

Also let Griffin score 30 plus on us just don't let him dunk or let the guards score 3s.

Also Prince needs to give us something he is scoring 2 points a game we need around 10 from him.

I'm sure man, but most teams (who really feel they can win a series) are probably upset after a loss. I'm sure the Grizz were after the game 1 debacle, but the Clips still won game 2, though it was much more competitive.

This is the mistake of thinking these are two equally matched teams. The Clippers have more talent and are more balanced top to bottom. They also have the two best players in the series. The edge Memphis has IMO is their coaching and the fact that the core has been together a good 4 years (Conley, Zbo, Gasol) so they know how to feed off each other better.

As a whole I think most people can admit the Clippers are the better team. Although if they don't step up, being better doesn't mean **** because it's the playoffs and anybody can beat anybody pretty much.

Clippersfan86
04-27-2013, 04:59 PM
Lol I didn't even have the game on yet and just noticed Memphis is already up 10. Clippers coming out like they don't give a **** again? This is the most important game of the series to this point. If Memphis wins tonight ALL of the pressure is on the Clippers, with Memphis having all the momentum. Sure they might still win but that means it likely goes to 7 again.. which means no rest before round 2 and a quick exit to the Thunder.

Talent doesn't always prevail in a 7 game series. It's not a mistake to think Memphis takes care of business in their house.

Don't think that's it, just think the home team, down 2-1, is playing with a sense of urgency.

Thing is truly great teams ALWAYS play with that urgency. In the playoffs nothing should change mentally if you're up or down. For the Clippers to just get dominated on the road is a bad sign because even if they advance they don't have HCA again these playoffs. Unless we finish Memphis off in 6 TOPS we lost. Because as I said.. we get to round 2 with no rest pretty much and likely very exhausted and banged up which = an easy 2nd round loss just like last year. The urgency should be because they want to be well rested with lots of time to practice before round 2.

It should be there, no doubt. But the Grizz aren't a cake walk. & It's a long game, so it's about how you start the game, but rather finish the game.

How the hell did we finish up 1 after being down like 12 or 14? The answer is an aggressive CP3! He looks great all the sudden. Too bad guys like DJ, Griffin, Billups, Crawford are holding us back. 2 of those guys are our top scorers and are playing like straight sh**.

Clippersfan86
04-27-2013, 05:55 PM
12-0 Memphis in second chance points. Only thing keeping us in it is the 25-6 bench scoring edge. If Memphis dominates on the offensive boards/second chance points in the second half, we lose... bottom line. That's the way Memphis beats you us the hustle plays in the paint. Take that away and they are a mediocre team.

Sorry not a fan of makeup calls. Those same calls you feel we shouldn't have gotten, their bigs have gotten nonstop all series. I've said it time and time again I'll say it again. These so called "physical" teams get away with murder on other teams but the minute you barely touch them it's a foul. So how physical are they really if you can't play them the same way? Sounds more like some teams just get away with more physicality (Memphis, Denver, Indiana, Chicago come to mind).

Vinny's screwing himself out of a job the last two games. I can't comprehend how bad Billups+Crawford need to play for Green to get a shot after playing FANTASTIC after the all star break. Billups and Crawford are what 2-15? Same as they were last game. When will Vinny learn? Then you have DJ doing nothing positive whatsoever and getting the start and a lot of burn? Makes no sense.

Because you're a Clippers fan, you're failing to look at this from a neutral point of view. This quarter (since it's all I was able to see lol) has been bad, on both ends. Early on, it went the Clippers way, then the Grizz started to get more calls. Considering the home team usually gets some favoritism, it's not surprising at all.

That's one of the weakest fouls I've ever seen. Odom gets some of his hand and knocks the ball out of his hand a little bit and it's a foul. But no hand checking called on Allen all series long.

He tried to initiate but Pondexter DID in fact jump into him forward rather than straight up so should still be a foul. Either way refs aren't THE reason they are down like you said, it just compounds the momentum and mistakes a lot. Once the Clippers started getting a bunch of crap called they mentally folded and lost focus which is their problem I suppose.

Lol you don't think Tony Allen has hand checked nonstop all series? You know hand checking is using your hands AT ALL to either push, hold or shield a defender right? It's basically playing defense with your hands instead of your feet which is what Allen does. I'm okay with hand checking as long as they don't call *** these ******** offensive fouls as well.

Anyways Memphis earned this win. Sure I didn't like the reffing, especially this second half but the bottom line is their team looks hungrier, more focused, better coached and like they just want this moment more. The Clippers look like a bunch of soft, dazed, poorly coached scrubs. Nobody outside of CP3 and Bledsoe looks like they REALLY want this game. It's a damn shame our primadonna team thought they could relax after a 2-0 lead. Although that's not surprising based on what we saw all year long where our players didn't show up vs the so called "bad" teams, but got up for most of the bigger games.

It's basically playing defense with your hands instead of your feet which is what Allen does. I'm okay with hand checking as long as they don't call *** these ******** offensive fouls as well.

laugh all you want. i dont see anyone else agreeing with you though. im guessing thats cause you are never right...

No... I'm guessing it's because none of you ever played basketball. Hand checking is obvious and Allen does it consistently.

It took him while but he finally got the matchups we want now is up to Vinny to chance things.

Time to start him again. Possibly time to go big on the perimeter whenever they are playing Tony to close.

CP3
Barnes
Butler
Blake and whichever crap big is playing well enough.

We are clearly getting outmuscled in the interior, the least we can do is send bigger perimeter guys to double down.

Chronz it's funny you mention that because both Evans and Kenyon Martin give ZBO problems
Reggie was a fan fave, dont know why he had to go. Reggie chants were epic at Staples, K-Mart wanted more money IIRC but Im sure he could have been had.

I really hope we didn't lose them simply because they thought we needed Hollins (basically a poor version of what we already have in DJ) and Turiaf (Career stiff). The hope was that they would bolster rim protection for the 2nd unit, which they have, but that isn't very helpful against Memphis.

Definitely possible but I think Clippers go up 3-1. After practice yesterday the players were still fuming and look incredibly focused. They SHOULD be pissed off for the horseshit effort they gave. Sad thing for the Grizzlies is they played amazing, Clippers played horrendous and STILL had multiple chances to steal it if they didn't give up timely buckets. Like cutting it from 17 to 6 mid 4th quarter or w/e only to give up a couple wide open 3's.

This is what happens when you place too much emphasis on intangibles.


This is the mistake of thinking these are two equally matched teams. The Clippers have more talent and are more balanced top to bottom. They also have the two best players in the series. The edge Memphis has IMO is their coaching and the fact that the core has been together a good 4 years (Conley, Zbo, Gasol) so they know how to feed off each other better.

As a whole I think most people can admit the Clippers are the better team. Although if they don't step up, being better doesn't mean **** because it's the playoffs and anybody can beat anybody pretty much.

Blake is not better than Marc.

Only great game so far has been 2. I shouldn't act like I'm surprised at 2-2, it's HOW we lost these games.

Memphis just.looks like the hungrier and more focused team. They have all momentum now and have outplayed us 3 straight games. CP3 game winner away from being 1-3. At this point we are wasting homecourt. Then you habe dumb fuvk Billups acting like these last two weren't a big deal.

I love the rivalry and actually like a couple of your fans that are real nice guys. They tend to be dominated by other Clips fans in the NBA forums. Maybe you remember I posted game threads for the Clips in last year's second round when you guys didn't have anyone to do that ?

I don't like the antics of the Grizzlies ON the court but off the court I know they are great guys. Zbo is one of those guys where off the court one of the classiest, big heart guys but on the court he's a fu**ing di**. Even recently he said despite the on court drama him and Blake has they really like and respect each other OFF the court. So if they don't take it personal, I shouldn't as a fan.

Mike Conley, Prince and Gasol are also very likable guys off the court and just a group of respectable guys in general. I think my main issues with the Grizzlies have been a few fans that I had a ton of clashes with during the playoffs last year and some bitterness remains.

Also the fans at the games have been douchebags to our guys with dumb chants (flopper, loser etc) and taunting, although obviously if I was a Grizzlies fan I'd love and appreciate it.. and I do respect that they have way more rowdy and crazy fans than us. Memphis probably has a top 3 playoff crowd in the NBA right there with the other cult fanbases (OKC, Utah, Portland).

Eh it's w/e. If the Clippers are going to come out like ******* I don't feel sorry for them one bit that they get hosed with beer on the way out. Does it piss me off a bit? Sure... but I also think they NEED to be ***** slapped after the horseshit they have pulled the last two days. I pray with everything I have that we get a no ******** coach similar to Pop or Hollins this summer who will verbally DESTROY our players after efforts like this. Vinny is a bit** when it comes to discipline and we need a hardass coach to shape these soft, primadonna's up.

I want a coach who will get in Blake's and CP3's face. Popovich would have ripped our players a new ******* for probably 3 hours after the game tonight.

Wait, do you really think those fans are calling Blake and CP3 "bonafide floppers" for no reason? Have you not seen their videos flailing their arms as if a bear was mauling them? Have you ever heard someone call KG, Z-Bo, or Dennis Rodman a consistent flopper?

It's the double standards and no vs the Grizzlies in the playoffs the last two years flopping hasn't been an issue overall. Although the Grizzlies players flop here and there so it's just annoyingly pathetic and hypocritical to have fans chant "flopper" when Marc Gasol just did a headsnap.. or Zbo who's called out the Clippers flops is getting bumped by a PG and flying 5 feet on the ground.

If you have such a problem with flopping, stop supporting the floppers on your team and for the players stop flopping if you don't like floppers. BTW Rodman was the biggest flopper of his era and maybe a GOAT level flopper. So although nobody made an issue of it, it doesn't mean he wasn't. KG isn't a flopper really at all and Zbo is.. but he plays so physical in general that people ignore it.
