KD with a crazy first half.

Clippersfan86
02-23-2014, 03:22 PM
Clippers have an all time great offense. 5th time they've scored 70 in a half this year, 3 of those games WITHOUT JJ Redick who has one of the best ORTG in the league. Now you add more bench scoring with Davis? If this team is ever 100 percent heathy watch out. That D though....

Not every player is built the same. Todays players are much softer than they were in generations past. Im sure lebrons in pain and as a result he's not playing.

Refball proving why Clippers aren't as babied as people think, at least compared to OKC. Blake not getting calls, 3 techs on Clips and can't blow on OKC without a foul.

Walt

I wis Granger would come to Dallas. Move Ellis to 6th man and give Dirk some offensive help in the starting unit.

Jamal Crawford is a really underrated reason for the Clips success since the day Cp3 went down. Good for 20+ and 5 every night.

Clippersfan86
02-23-2014, 03:41 PM
Clippers D tightening up! I never understand this team. When they lock in they can play D as good as anybody in the league. Problem is they only do it 5-7 minutes a game. Makes zero sense.

Baller1
02-23-2014, 03:41 PM
Jamal Crawford's shot is perfection. It looks effortless.

Clippersfan86
02-23-2014, 03:43 PM
Tre if you don't think refs would have even looked at if it was a flagrant 1 for Durant, you're in denial. My understanding is any reckless foul with no play on the ball is a flagrant 1. Jumping from behind and yanking the arm of an airborne player is exactly that. All I ask is to call for Barnes what you'd call for Durant.

Walt
02-23-2014, 03:45 PM
Griff defintely got fouled.

Clippersfan86
02-23-2014, 03:45 PM
Lmao even Hubie said Blake got fouled 4 times. ****ing refs are pathetic.

Ugh..... I just turned this game on, and I'm so torn. I want the Clippers to lose for seeding purposes, but I love watching OKC getting beat.

Clippersfan86
02-23-2014, 03:52 PM
OKC has never been a team I feared. If you can keep refs out of it as much as possible their weaknesses are rather easy to expose. Predictable offense, turnover prone, inconsistent post defense against athletic bigs especially. Blake's been obliterating Ibaka his entire career.

Westbrook's worst career verages come against the Clippers. KD's dominated lately but struggled Blake's rookie year.

On the black bar at the top of the screen, click on "Settings." Then a new page will pull up with several columns on the left. Click on "Edit Signature" under "My Settings." I can't remember because it's been so long, but you might have to have a certain number of posts before you add a signature.

Clips missed a big opportunity closing that quarter out. 15 point lead down to 6 and OKC has the momentum. We'll see is they can hold on.

When I saw that the Clippers added Dudley and Redick, I thought those would be two huge, underrated signings. I feel like I was right about Redick and way off on Dudley. He's just been such a disappointment this year. And I would say that the Clippers would be better off starting Barnes, but he's been awful this year, too.

Huge shot by Crawford there, but the Clippers are relying way too much on deep 3-pointers right now. They've got to get easier some shots in the paint.

clippers are for sure better with starting barnes. everyone has been wrong about dudley. no one expected to be an all-star, but the dude has sucked in every facet of the game.

No, they have to start playing some defense.

The NBA has really fallen knowing that their fans just focus on what a team does on the offense end and totally disregard the other end of the floor.

How many Clippers possessions in a row is that where the Clippers ended up with a 18-25 foot jump shot with like 10-15 seconds left on the shot clock? This is bad offense. And they certainly aren't doing themselves any favors defensively.

This is the kind of game that Blake just needs to take over. He's gained a lot of respect this season and has taken such a monumental leap forward, but these are kinds of games he has to dominate in the fourth quarter.

Wow.... Crazy turn of events there. Blake makes back-to-back free throws, Durant misses back-to-back free throws and Crawford nails a deep three. I actually thought that should have been a four-point play, but the refs and I aren't seeing eye to eye right now.

4th quarters become suck a joke for OKC. Ibaka gets 0 touches. Fisher who is 5 for 5 from 3 gets no looks. Reggie Jackson has literally touched the ball once in the 4th. Westbrook has 3 offensive rebounds but is 1 for 3 in the 4th.

I get KD is good but it can't be isoball all 4th.

So Westbrook takes less than 2x the shots KD took (30 to 13), and gets crucial offensive rebounds off KD's bricked shots leading to 2 threes (one by fisher and one by KD), yet he is Westbrick?

KD missed 2 free throws to give us the lead...

Lets not blame our defense that gave up 125 at home when we're the 2nd best defensive team.

Lets not blame crawford going 13 for 20 for 37 points.

How about Reggie Jackson who played 35 minutes, had 4 turnovers and went 3 for 12?

Nope, all Westbrooks fault.

I don't really care that much either way. Part of me would like to see Lebron win at least one more, because he's not getting any younger, and there are so many talented young players who are just going to keep getting better. Plus, he got robbed his first year in Miami. But I also think Durant has got a pretty substantial lead right now, and he deserves it. He's been the second best player in the league for probably 2-3 years, and he clearly took a major step forward in his game this year.

In the end, I think Durant wins it, but there's at least a small chance that Lebron could pull off a monster comeback.

Suns Plan On Matching Any Offer To Eric Bledsoe In Restricted Free Agency

Eric Bledsoe emerged as a star this season with the Phoenix Suns until his knee surgery in January. Bledsoe averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Bledsoe will be a restricted free agent and Lon Babby plans to match any potential offer in the open market.

"I think our answer to that is yes, that we know enough about Eric as a player," Babby said. "Even more importantly, we've lived with him now for almost a year as a person. We like everything about him. Like him as a teammate, like him as a representative of our franchise and everything that he stands for.

"He's got a tremendous future."

Babby hopes the Suns can sign Bledsoe outright instead of going through the process of matching.

"If you ask me today, I would say absolutely we are going to match any offer, but I hope it doesn't come to that. I hope Eric has developed enough of a feeling, and my instincts are that he likes it here."

http://arizonasports.com/41/1700392/Babby-Team-plans-to-match-any-Bledsoe-offer

That Gasol trade would of been so nice for the Suns, I want to see the Suns win the Pacific.

Gasol would make us even worse defensively and would leave after 2 months or cost too much to resign.
