Cousins cries just as much if not more than blake and CP.

 

On the floor slapping the floor begging for calls.

 

Regardless the kings are playoff bound as long as they stay healthy. Knew it wasn't going to be easy.

 

Good win. Solid execution down the stretch. Lance fits with the starting lineup.

Yep. Lance the starter; PP the closer. I like it.

Yep, and like you said before, if we want to secure home court in the playoffs, can't fritter away winnable games. But given what went on in the Summer, I expect the team to come out ready for this one.

I think Doc will get the best out of Lance this season.

He doesn't have to be Indiana lance, but just a guy that will take the open shot, run the floor, cut and run some secondary pick and roll on the weak side. JJ looked a little uncomfortable with Lance out there at first. But I'm sure they'll figure it out.

I felt JJ didn't play well last night, and he still had 15 on 5/11 & 2/5. He missed some good looks, but hit some big shots and free throws. He's the key.

I think the bench will absolutely get it together. Josh Smith was great on Defense. He had 4 blocks off the bench. Bench units with bigger C's or staggard lineups could hurt having Smith playing the 5 though. All in all, I liked what I saw.

JJ has some chemistry issues with both wesley Johnson and Lance. Especially when they run their floppys. Noticed it even during the preseason. JJ was so in sync with matt, and Lance sometimes (like Last night) gets caught not knowing what to do, running the wrong routes, etc.


Nothing to really be worried about though and I imagine that by the 15th game or so of the season there will be a flow and chemistry there.

 

I don't know how I feel about the Smith / Pierce small ball second unit. Going back to the preseason, we are getting killed on the boards with that. It's hard, but I wouldn't be opposed to giving cole a look and as wavy said, staggering the lineups a bit because I do think this will be a problem going forward. But offensively, from Jamal to Austin, to Josh Smith, Wes Johnson hit a corner three, they appear to be playing within themselves which is great. I love what I see on that end.

 

Even though it's the 2nd game of the season, these games are important man. I know we are far from a finished product, but we still need to rack up these wins. They'll prove vital if / when we win the conference or finish with the second seed.

Loved what I saw last nite.  BG played as instinctive as I've ever seen him play, no hestiation.

 

The added dimensions (J Smoove's shot blocking, PP's offensive arsenal and Lance's chaos, both good and bad, :lol ) to the squad are going to be fun to watch.

 

Co-sign on the bit about Cousins.  Looks like dude is never gonna grow up, his tantrums and complaining are pathetic.

Generally agree, but I felt like he got a little tight again when the game got close in the 4th quarter. Took a couple of bad shots when Gay was guarding him. Went away from what had been working for him. No big deal because we won, but I'd like to start seeing him make clutch 4th quarter shots more often.

I'm higher on doc than most in here I think (as a coach at least), but since he's gotten to LAC their offense has been incredible. Clippers, Warriors, and Spurs, run some of the best stuff in the halfcourt. The improvement that the Clips have made in the halfcourt over the years has been really great to watch. 

 

Now just gotta get guys like blake to not become a tight *** in the fourth. 

 

Note: This is also why you have to look at process vs results. The Results don't make us much better than when Vinny D was here but the eye test tells a lot here to me and our team under Doc is lowkey worlds better than under Vinny D.

Blake really does need to get over that. He starts thinking too much and not just playing instinctively, which he's been doing brilliantly through 3 quarters. And we've seen him have clutch moments in games before. Like that Phoenix game he won on a buzzer beater. He'll get it down consistently.

Hopefully you're right.

 

It's like when it gets under 6 minutes in the fourth, he starts thinking and as you alluded to, his instinctiveness just goes out the window. He takes the midrange jumper with so much confidence prior to crunch time. Once those moments of crisis come, he starts to revert back to old blake. The BS fadeaways without making the defense do anything, (He did this against Rudy a few times on opening night in the fourth) or just bulldozing his way to the rim only to throw up some caca. More than anything, he starts thinking, and then his composure goes out the window when he gets scared.

No Slip ups. Hopefully we take care of business tonight and get to 4-0. Won't be easy though. Phx has some players and Bledsoe always wants to show out against us. 

 

Looking for Blake to keep up his torrid play, and for CP to regain his shooting stroke. 

 

Quote:
 The LA Clippers look to improve on their best start in the Chris Paul era by going 4-0 tonight against the Phoenix Suns. Dating back to last regular season, the LA Clippers have won 17 of their last 18 games. While Blake Griffin has had an incredible start, so has JJ Redick. Reddick is shooting a blistering 55% from behind the arc. A direct opposite of the start of last season, when Reddick started the season Ice Cold from the 3 point line. There's an early season showdown on tap for Wednesday night at the Oracle Arena, but tonight comes first and the Clippers can't overlook the Suns and bledsoe, whom is averaging over 22 ppg out the gate this season thus far.

 

Quote:
 The La Clippers have taken just 42 Field Goal Attempts inside the restricted area. That number falls to just 19 when you take away Griffin and Jordan. This isn't a surprise however, as the Clippers were the league's #1 offense last year and also led the league in Midrange jumpers and were a top 5 3 point shooting team as well.

Yeah, tonight is definitely a game we could get caught slipping if we don't come out focused.

Looking forward to Wednesday, obviously, but we're going to have to shoot from outside better than we have been to beat the Dubs. We got some timely 3s last night from Josh, Pierce and JJ, but were otherwise pretty cold. We'll see. But Oracle is always tough and GSW is on fire right now.

We've been pretty cold from deep to start the season minus JJ this season so far. (Even though JJ was ice cold last night too)

 

I look for CP to play great on ball d on steph and for the Clips to blitz steph curry on Everything. (Even though they haven't done that nearly as much as they have done it in previous years) Pin downs, when he's playing P&R, just say the hell with it and bliz it.

 

Relatively speaking, doc and lawrence's schemes on hot shot score first PG's is pretty good. Normally keeps them under control so we'll see how they do.

I also still feel like the Clips (and all teams, really) need to attack Steph more on D. Make him work, maybe get him in foul trouble. We have enough talent now that we can put out a line up where they can't hide Steph on someone.

Good point. At times in past years they've hid him on Dudley, and Barnes. Making him work is definitely a way to go at him.

Clips bee cold from 3, but killing it in mid range an at the rim.

Cp3 will find his 3ball. He missed some flat out wide open 3's the first few games, and looks to be just coasting and allowing Blake to takeover the game.

I can almost guarantee that Cp3 will come out aggressive and make Steph work. Unless they go with Klay to start the game, and have Steph on Lance
