Clippers are for real. Blazers only show up when they play the Lakers


Were they for real when then got waxed by 51?


Kinda annoying they outscored the Blazers in every quarter.

With that said, I find the Clippers a curious team in that the 4 games they won they have absolutely shot a ridiculously high average from 3:

19-38 vs Nugs
16-31 v T-Wolves
18-38 v Blazers

Their final 3 percentage in the first game vs the Lakers was much lower (35%), but after they had gained a double digit lead late in the third, the Clips starting missing 3's which lowered their average.

I wonder if they are not hitting 3's at a high clip, or if they are struggling from there, just how good they are - thus far the one game the shot was not falling they lost by 50.

As an aside, the Lakers have had some fairly hot 3 point shooting in 2 of their 3 wins. However, despite shooting "ok" (not stellar) 3 shooting against the Blazers, that was a very winnable game until the end with defense lapses.

My early take on the Clippers - subject to change - is if they are not scoring at a record-like pace percentage wise (especially from 3), they will have trouble beating good teams. [Current counter to this point I'm making is game 1 vs the Lakers - however, I do not believe that was a great game to judge the Lakers by].

I'm starting to think we would have been better standing pat with the same team from last year...If any of those guys (AB,DH12,DG,Mcgee) get hurt this year, then I'll change my mind maybe lol.

We’d be 1-4 or 0-5 with the guys we had last season.
AD and LBJ is at 70-80% max. Trez /DS/Wes/gasol carried us in our wins. New teams take time to develop chemistry especially on defense.

I want a happy medium for Wes, hopefully this gets him offensively comfortable. Solid win, not too tasking.

I think we prob will start blowing out teams once we click, we have the most fire power in the league, best duo plus 3 6MOY level plus THT and Gasol, all could get hot

Wes Matthews lit the Spurs up!!
18 points on 6-6 shooting from deep.

It was nice seeing Wes is finally getting into a rhythm with the team.
He is our best 3D guy and a big part of the team's immediate future.

Good win, but my takeaways are similar to everyone else's:

1. Defense is putrid.
2. Turnovers.
3. Kuzma and Trezz have a terrible time at simply handling the ball.
4. We need an athletic big. There's no way around this one.

I’m convinced pop didn’t want to coach last night

Those calls weren’t worthy of losing your head over

Think he wanted to get ejected lol. Let Becky get her feet wet since my assumption is when he hangs it up she’ll be the head coach
