Hypothetically, if SA loses tonight, it could be Manu's last game played in SA. Possibly even Duncan, to a lesser extent.

I want Clippers to make it far (and Spurs to be eliminated) because I feel NBA, of all major sports, tends to stagnate around 4-5 franchises. Spurs are the stale team; Clippers are one of the freshest.

But, my desires don't dictate the outcome. It's looking more likely that Spurs will win. Clippers had nice chances in Games 2 and Games 5. Had they won both, this series would have been over. Had they taken one out of those two, they would be in a great position to move ahead.

It's not impossible, of course, but its unlikely that Clippers win this series. I think Spurs close tonight on home-court.

I've said in previous Clipper-SA threads that I don't trust the Clippers.

I don't trust their late game execution or their consistency or their ability to maintain focus for 48 minutes over multiple games.

When the Clippers are playing at their best I believe they're just as good if not better than SAS, but they're like the guy in the bowling alley that regularly goes on a hot streak and bowls 200, but has way too many 85 games to be considered a reliable anchor on the team.

Maturity and mental focus are the biggest enemy of the Clippers. SAS has bad games but they rarely completely lose focus. SAS has bad nights when it comes to calls or missed shots, but they rarely let the calls and shooting throw them off their game.

Will Chris Paul and Blake Griffin ever grow into the type of players that you can rely on when the pressure is the greatest? I don't know. It would be sad if they didn't, but regardless of talent some players never reach that level of mental game that winning Championships requires.

They Are already there, what They need more than any of that cliche talk is a bench. Not as good as San Antones but at least one that could survive the absence of cp3.

Over their 5 games the Clippers have scored...

Game 1 : 107 - Win
Game 2 : 107 (OT) - Loss, 94 in regulation
Game 3 : 73 - Loss
Game 4 : 114 - Win
Game 5 : 107 - Loss

With the exception of Game 3, that seems like more than enough points to actually win a game during the play offs even with the "terrible" bench. If I told you that the Clippers would have those scores at the end of games prior to the actual series, you wouldn't feel that bad about it at all.

Meanwhile...

Game 2 - Critical turnover by BG in closing seconds
Game 3 - Terrible performance by CP3
Game 5 - BG shoots 1-9 in the 4th quarter and DJ negates basket with Offensive Interference

Without getting into too much more detail (or bringing up game 5 vs OKC) the Clippers are not "there".

And while you can point to the bench as being weak, the team wasn't designed around a strong bench. The team is designed around a killer starting unit. That's why Doc is using a very short rotation and Pops has a 9-10 man rotation.

Unless you think the bench is going to be playing the closing minutes, what you're really asking for is a killer starting unit and a killer bench unit so you can run up the score even more. Sorry, but that really doesn't happen that often in the NBA... salary caps means you can have a great starting unit or a decent to good starting unit with a great bench.

According to teamrankings the Clippers had most efficient offense in the NBA and the 16th ranked defense this season.

I'm going to laughing if Memphis and Houston end up winning their respective series. There is a reason they play the game, the expected doesn't always happen.

This isn't saying that Memphis is better than GS or that Houston is better than LA or SA, but the beauty of Basketball is how a team can get hot and beat opponents they're inferior to.

How quickly we forget about the 8 seed GSW beating the 1 seed Mavericks....

And when you have players like Harden, Howard, Gasol etc. they can rise to surpass expectations.

Win your home games, win the series. Home court helps ALOT in the playoffs. I know both LA and SA have won on the road but that doesn't dismiss the fact that home court helps.

Game 5 : 107 - Loss

With the exception of Game 3, that seems like more than enough points to actually win a game during the play offs even with the "terrible" bench.
More than enough points isn't the problem, its the immense load carried by a select few in attaining those points.


If I told you that the Clippers would have those scores at the end of games prior to the actual series, you wouldn't feel that bad about it at all.
No doubt. I dont feel bad, I dont feel bad because of the way we've lost and who've we've faced.


Meanwhile...

Game 2 - Critical turnover by BG in closing seconds
Game 3 - Terrible performance by CP3
Game 5 - BG shoots 1-9 in the 4th quarter and DJ negates basket with Offensive Interference

Not seeing your point, its a TEAM game. For example, in that blowout loss, the Big3 of the Spurs went a combined 7-19 or something like that, they won because of their depth and the fact that we had to overplay our main guys in the games prior. There is a balance of stars and bench depth necessary to win IMO. The fact that we have played the deepest team in the league so tough is a testament to our stars.


Without getting into too much more detail (or bringing up game 5 vs OKC) the Clippers are not "there".
I disagree, the players you've mentioned are there. There is no shame in losing to a superior team, only 1 team can win the title but I dont take that to mean only 1 team was capable of winning or that the 1 team was the only team with players that are "there". Guess this depends on what you mean by "there".


And while you can point to the bench as being weak, the team wasn't designed around a strong bench. The team is designed around a killer starting unit. That's why Doc is using a very short rotation and Pops has a 9-10 man rotation.
The team not being designed that way is my point tho. Depth is always a plus and thats the primary reason we have lost.


Unless you think the bench is going to be playing the closing minutes, what you're really asking for is a killer starting unit and a killer bench unit so you can run up the score even more.
Straws galore. Sorry but what Im asking for is a unit that can buy the closing group more time to recuperate and not have to carry the load from start to finish.



Sorry, but that really doesn't happen that often in the NBA... salary caps means you can have a great starting unit or a decent to good starting unit with a great bench.
Nonsense. I've seen great GM's assemble top notch support/benches with pure savvy. Unfortunately we have Doc running teams.

Why? It should be obvious based on the relative disparity from starters to bench. I would argue no contender is more shallow than the Clips. Whereas a team like the Spurs has a better lineup efficiency when healthy, the Clips rode their starters ALL YEAR.

I'd get rid of Crawford after this series unless he starts to prove his worth. They need to get some more shooters. Once again the game starts and their 0-6 and the Spurs are 7-11 from 3pt. It feels everytime the Clippers put their starters on the bench the game gets out of hand because their bench can't compete the Spurs.

Win or lose, they have to get shooters off the bench in the offseason.

I miss having a bench that could compete, but back then Blake and DJ were infants/injured. Now we have the core in place and Doc has RUINED our bench. I wish we still had Dudley and our first rounder.

Certainly tougher looks during the hack sequence. By definition 0 transition buckets; A huge part of a free flowing/smart offenses game out the window and one of the scariest parts of the Spurs offense that often end in open 3's. At home, it also takes the crowd out of the game and creates a situation where you're giving the opponent a very solid 0.9 to 1.2 PPP on average, not counting potential offensive boards on the 2nd FT. Also, the chance of future foul trouble (or in this case, current foul trouble and having to sit Timmy for 4 minutes which in turn helps squander their entire lead).

I don't know, I just hope he keeps it up. I'm rooting for the Clips in this game and I think it's a great advantage for LAC if he starts it up again in the 3rd.

Just saw this stat posted. Spurs average 1.13 PPP off of a D rebound, 0.93 off of made shots and foul attempts.

Case in point. Not to mention, look at how soft Timmy's D is right now? Ancillary damage from the foul trouble he's now in. The more you dig, the worse the strategy looks.

That's the toughest part about when it started this game. You guys were ROLLING and frustrating the Clips up and down the court. They couldn't hit a shot to save their life. If it's a mental thing, why not wait until they start heating up (if they do?). Couldn't have been worse timing.

That's all for me on the hack strategy today though. Just had to get it out ; )

We just need an 8 pt headstart for the 4th, then Blake will close it out fresh IMO. I liked how he took CP3 out early and left Blake in, hes staggering the lineups abit differently right now.

I think the Clips have been better for most of the series but it doesn't always show on the score board. I would have thought with this pace timmy and Leonard would have played bigger on O. If it was for Diaw and Marco the Spurs lose by 30. With out one of them 20? I will give Blake mad props for tonight. Still a way to ugly by both teams considering. I am taking the Spurs in 7 b/c they are the Spurs and i feel like even when the Clips look dominate the spurs are always right there.

The fact that Harden bothers you guys so much is so entertaining to me hahaha

It's not like he bothers me with how good he is... he's a diva who gets undeserved points and is a bad teammate. Anyone with those attributes bothers me no matter how many points per game he undeservedly averages.

This has been one heck of a series. Both teams going hot and cold in waves.

I feel bad for both teams. Neither team should be going out in the first round, and it kinds of sucks that whichever team wins will be pretty tired going into the 2nd round.

The West is just brutal.

Seriously I get the banter, there are threads dedicated to the jerk fest that makes yall want to sniff Currys hairless armpits, but why is GS fan ruining game threads with off topic vitriol and nothing happens? West Coast mods? Site rules are specific on this.

SA you let me down. Saturday is Money May Night and I can't fit in the game. Good luck!

blah blah blah keep crying. He was super efficient and clutch when Houston needed him to. No matter what the man does he will always be seen in a negative way.

PSD posters this season:

"Rockets won't make playoffs, they got significantly worse." -Harden leads th to the 2nd seed in the Wild West.

"Harden disappears in the playoffs"-Harden scores 42, sets up teammates to succeed, come in the clutch for big shots.

"Howard sucks, ego diva." - plays amazing and unselfishly focuses only on defense and rebounding.

"josh smith is horrible, terrible love by Houston"- goes wild in the first round.

"Dallas will win in 6 far better team than the rockets."- Rockets in 5

Houston has become the new hate te because of some of their PSD fans and Harden unpopular but intelligent playing style. Along with Dwight.

No one has evenentioned how Amazing Howard played this series...not one peep. But let him have a bad series in the second round and watch all PSD posters come out of nowhere and rip on him.

Houston will be hated, I've accepted that, just makes it all the more sweeter every time they make yall shut up.

Much of what you wrote concerning the team was hyperbole or a minority opinion. Specifically the "Mavs in 6". Was there a poll on this by chance? If so I guarantee it favored the Rockets, especially after Parsons went down and Rondo left the team. The Rox played awesome though. You should feel very happy that you got the best Dwight we've seen in 3 years to show up, and that Smoove has accepted his role for the most part. Also, Harden only began the series shooting his standard high 30% FG. He finished much stronger, albeit against a fairly porous Mavs D.

You just have to accept that Harden plays a style of basketball that many basketball purists and new fans alike can't stand, and much of that has to do with the fact that he's so talented that they feel it's unnecessary. I'm with you though, might as well do the most you can for your team to win. He's certainly not alone in the flopping epidemic, he's just the poster boy for it.

And D. Howard/J.Smoove, etc. These are just players that fans don't like. It has nothing to do with the Rockets themselves. Nobody cares about the Rockets as an organization, frankly they haven't won enough for anyone to care. They just don't like the talent, not much you can do about that.

Also, the Rox fans have a terrible reputation on forums. I thought it was just PSD, but the more I searched around the more I realized it's actually a thing. Probably just fans backlashing angrily against all the hate they get for the players they have, which is understandable. All in fun for me.

And fellas don't try to e-police/sweat going outside the box in a game thread. Especially after it's over. These are essentially the "say whatever's on your mind" threads.

I really thought Danny would finally have his night, he didn't, instead JJ got going again. And KAWHI shat the bed. Game 7 is honestly a toss up. Hard to imagine Spurs winning 3 road games in a 7 game series, but hard to imagine the defending champion Spurs to have an off game 2 games in a row. What I'm really looking forward to is how Kawhi responds in G7. He has already been labelled as the face of the franchise now, he just had 3-15 night, how does he play G7

Couple interesting facts.

1. Clippers are only the 2nd team to beat the Spurs in a closeout game when they were up 3-2. Their prior record was an amazing 12-1.

2. The home team wins 80 percent of game 7's on their court, but this series has been so absurd, nobody including me knows how it's going to go.

3. Only time the Spurs have won a game 7 on the road was against CP3's Hornets in 08.

4. The Spurs' bench has now outscored the Clippers' bench 308-168 for the series.

5. Clippers are the only team to beat the Spurs at home since January and have now done it 3 times. Once in the regular season, twice in the playoffs.

PS anyone else see Steve Ballmer crying last night when the win looked assured? Sure it's odd to people.. but the Clippers just came from an owner who didn't value the players at all, so in a way it's a beautiful thing to see. So good to finally have an owner who cares.

I wouldn't worry about Leonard, thats the one guy I see showing up after that game 6 performance. Duncan will be Duncan. Parker looks like something is wrong health wise. Manu looks like he did two years ago. Green has been in a slump all series. They better get a good night out of Diaw and Mills. I lean toward the Spurs. Its really a toss up here.

It needs to grow a pair and actually enforce the rules that are in place. It will never be watched over something like, the NFL draft, the NHL playoffs when the calls are that awful. And I love the sport, but wow, what a joke.

Yea they missed one there for sure. Terrible.. But, Clips probably would've won regardless. They played much better from the end of the 2nd quarter on.

At this point, I'm thinking that home court doesn't mean a thing in this series.

It's clear that neither the Spurs or Clippers have issues winning on the other team's court.

Game 7 is going to be a war.

Lol people conveniently ignore Manu taking his legs out with a foul to focus on a travel that he wouldn't of done if not hit twice.

The ratings have been bad enough for the playoffs this year do you really think they're going to put the opportunity for a game 7 in jeopardy by giving the Spurs a chance to win or tie? No way Jose, refs will do whatever is necessary to keep a game close nowadays, it's all about money

My girl caught that, its the only thing she caught, she had just woken up cuz she thought she was bad luck on the team this series. She really likes Duncan and Manu.
