Were they? Wouldn't have expected that. I honestly usually pull for the Grizz on most nights. Got a lot of respect for them, But living in NYC, it kinda sucks to see the Knicks so bad lol. So it was one of those games I was like it'd be great for the fans in NY if they came back from like 18 down to win it.

That's awesome you've got floor seats! Share some pics if you can :) That should be an awesome experience. I don't remember the timeline but is Gasol expected back by then?

I'd love to. I always try and upgrade when we play the Spurs because(shhhh don't tell anyone) I really respect your team and coach . Ever since they kicked the crap out of us in our first playoffs....ok, there are some that shall remain nameless who make my blood boil...:D Gasol won't be back until sometime in January.

Yea I feel the same way about you guys. Since 2011 (that year kinda sucked though) I've enjoyed the matchups. Seems most of them have been close and the players show a lot of respect for one another. I love how the Grizz play the game. Sucks Marc won't be back by then, but Koufous is another big body at least. That's a great backup to have.

That should be a great game though. Hopefully you get 2 near full strength teams since you upgraded.

I'll admit that Drummond has been impressive in the minutes that I've seen him this season, but I really hope this game silences the "Drummond is better than Dwight" discussions. Dwight has been absolutely dominant in this game and has been playing like his vintage Orlando days as of late.

No doubt, Hes nowhere near that level yet but I hope he gets to Dwight's level within the next couple of years. I forgot how dominant Howard can be when he's a #1 option like he is tonight.

The only bright side to that is that Isaiah Canaan could finally see some minutes now. But there really isn't any bright side to the injuries the Rockets are having right now. It's going ridiculous to the point of being laughable.

I do think it's way too early to call Bennett a bust, and I'm still not sure there's a guaranteed star in the 2013 draft class. But if I had to make a prediction, it'd be that Cleveland made a huge, huge mistake taking Bennett first overall and that a number of NBA players in this draft class will have superior careers than him, including Oladipo, who they should have drafted.

I'm not sure if the Detroit win completely takes away the sting from the Indiana debacle last night, but it was certainly a nice win, playing on the road against a decent on the second night of a back-to-back and with injuries completely killing your back court.

Honestly, watching the Indiana game last night, I think Harden made a mistake coming back as early as he did. I'd like to see him sit out until he's as close to 100% as humanly possible. This Rockets team proved they can win short-handed games by playing the kind of basketball Dwight's Orlando teams played. Unfortunately their next three games are Dallas, San Antonio and Memphis, so i'm not sure they have the luxury of resting anyone who can play.

Very debatable.
BBREF stats won't show the massive difference in rim protection that Dwight provides over Demarcus, which is the #1 job of an elite center. It's a decent part of the reason why Dwight's teams tend to win 50+ games, and DMC's have never won 30.

That ejection on Speights is absurd, by the way. He prevented a layup and didn't even come down hard on Young. He also held him up to prevent him from getting hurt. It's a flagrant by todays NBA standards but a ridiculous ejection. Though I'm not exactly crushed to see him off the floor.

It's been pretty impressive what they've done so far. But on top of no guards, no Gasol tonight. Just a complete lack of offense and the 28% FG from LA isn't all that sHocking because of it. Their last game was really fun to watch, though. I hope they at least have a handful more games like that.

It's been pretty impressive what they've done so far. But on top of no guards, no Gasol tonight. Just a complete lack of offense and the 28% FG from LA isn't all that sHocking because of it. Their last game was really fun to watch, though. I hope they at least have a handful more games like that.


Yeah there are moments when they're so fun to watch. I like to call our guys "The Replacements" lol, they didn't belong on NBA rosters or were failed players/early draft picks, but they play hard which is fun to see

It was excessive though, you can't deny that.

It wasn't it, we just played aggressive. You're only saying the refs are helping us because mackshock said it. The only horrendous call the lakers got was where hill kicked the ball and we stole kept possession. Besides that you've just been complaining about the refs.

Every game there are questionable calls for both teams, choosing to remember those that went against your team is easier to remember than those that benefitted your team, just sayin.

Honestly the game was called impartially, all I saw in your forum was how the lakers kept on getting calls, how henry was getting kobe's calls etc.

C'mon now. .

Demarcus Cousins is WAAAAY better

Not yet, and I'm a huge Howard hater from his Orlando days.

Sure cousins has been phenomenal offensively, However Howard's defense is the main reason as to why he is the best center in the game.

And will be until cousin improves his defense or hibbert drastically improves his offense.

He's been impressive when healthy, if andre can get healthy too then that'll be 2 excellent defenders that are underrated passers on the same team, and they can each score 12+ consistently, so it's not like they're a liability on offense.

This team has the right pieces to be a contender, maybe just add another player to help off the bench and this team will be a team that nobody will want to face in the playoffs, especially since everyone knows curry and klay get hot any given game. Love your team, wish you guys the best of luck. I think you're guy's current problems are minor (effort, and consistency imo, especially defensively).

The only bright side to that is that Isaiah Canaan could finally see some minutes now. But there really isn't any bright side to the injuries the Rockets are having right now. It's going ridiculous to the point of being laughable.

Tre you're usually not so illogical and butthurt. Maybe it's your team being a nearly .500 team. Love and Pek had the best game of their lives as a duo, they hit tough shot after tough shot, most contested well. It happens and one game doesn't discredit nearly 30. Blake and DJ are anchoring the 6th ranked D as our best defensive players. Or at least most consistent one.

Screwed by refs too many times to count, coming off a B2B AND missing a starter. Yet able to absorb a historic game by a duo of bigs. Am I supposed to be proven wrong somehow lmao?

Clippersfan86
12-23-2013, 01:43 AM
Bares ejected for a clear non flagrant foul which will be reversed pist game as usual. DJ in foul trouble early on some weak ****. Griffin getting two suspect fouls within 40 seconds in OT. CP3 not getting 3 FT's on the SAME EXACT play Love got 3 for going into the half. So glad our guys showed grit and gave the refs the middle finger.

Cracka2HI!
12-23-2013, 01:55 AM
Great win for the Clippers! The Wolves really showed their youth there. The refs made a lot of bad calls against the Clipps. I don't normally say that but they had a bad game. Blake and DJ got dominated tonight. That isn't a good sign but a win is a win! This was the first bad game the team has had defensively in a while. Blake had a great offensive game. It will be overshadowed but Love's much better game but Blake is really looking great on the offensive end!

Clippersfan86
12-23-2013, 01:56 AM
Since 1985 only Hakeem has had the statistical game Love did, which he did once. For Pek to also go for like 31/19 or W/E in the same game and LOSE. Unheard of.

tredigs
12-23-2013, 02:03 AM
"Butthurt" lol. I have no allegiance here dude and could care less about how this relates to the Warriors being 2 games over .500 or whatever. The fact of the matter is that the Wolves front line obliterated the Clips the same day you made the thread saying the Clips front line was the best (I thought it was suspicious timing because I predicted this would happen to some degree tonight). They have been better statistically on the season as well, and Deandre + Blake's rim protection leaves a lot to be desired. They are not among the elite in the NBA as defensive anchors.

tredigs
12-23-2013, 02:09 AM
Love + Pek showering one of the best statistical games from a 4/5 in modern NBA history on them didn't help the case, is all I'm saying. The good news however is that Blake had a game himself and the Clips have potent guards... while the Wolves have a starting PG who literally cannot score.

Clippersfan86
12-23-2013, 02:14 AM
Yes and it's one game. Last game Love was held to his worst game in 4 seasons by Griffin. I won't hesitate to admit we got demolished tonight. Love and Pekovic both had career games in the same night, while Blake and DJ were plagued by foul trouble. In the opening half Blake and Love were pretty equal. The real dominance came when DJ had 3 fouls early 2nd quarter by Pek.

I agree the rim defense isn't good, but nonetheless Blake and DJ have been our defensive leaders this year and most consistent defenders. One historic beatdown doesn't change that. Blake is down to a career best 100 DRTG, DJ a career best 96 or 97. Their defensive strengths come in defending PNR and switches, which in a PNR dominated leagueis far more important than rim D.

Although as I said this doesn't take away from the other thread. If anything this was a signature Doc win, won with grit, despite huge adversity. A Vinny coached team likely folds much sooner.

Clippersfan86
12-23-2013, 02:19 AM
I agree the timing of my comment was extremely ironic in hindsight. Still most said DJ was trash, Blake was done growing. At least around forums. Both, thanks to Doc, clearly wrong.
