Clippers Season Autopsy

April 26, 2017 - Posted by SamMays

The Clippers 2016-17 season is over with another first round playoff exit. This accepts the idea that we have virtually no chance of beating Utah twice in a row. Even if we did somehow pull off a miracle, we would then have literally no chance of beating Golden State in a best of seven.

Let's start with Doc. While his value as a coach can be debated, I don't think there is much debate that he's been a lousy GM. Sure, he has kept the big three together, but winning 50+ a year makes that a fairly minor accomplishment. What has he done to surround them with talent? The answer is abject...

Attitude - the Lost Element

November 11, 2016 - Posted by LAC_12

Many long time Clipper fans may feel like what I am feeling a change in attitude. It is that same change that I've begun to feel that may make way for some change. REAL CHANGE. The attitude of "We are winners". It may be just getting older and being more but I no longer celebrate a lot of impressive wins. I no longer care for fancy plays. I no longer go to the calendar and mark certain

... OK I may still do that. But the mind frame has been: "when do the playoffs start"

I must admit this has really taken a toll on getting high during the...

Clippers Are A Lot Better Than Last Year

April 19, 2016 - Posted by SamMays

The Clippers are as ready for this post season as we could be. Sure, our record wasn't as good as last years, but there are a lot of reasons for that, that have nothing to do with talent. This team is better and not just a little bit, but a lot.

DJ has improved with every year in the league and this year is no exception. He's a better player than he was last year. He's smarter, more self aware and has improved as a post player even if he doesn't get a lot of opportunities to show it.

CP3 doesn't look to have hit the slide downward yet. Additionally, he is healthier and better rested...

A Look Deep Inside Blake's Brain, What's He Thinking?

February 19, 2016 - Posted by JamFan

Blake looks normal enough finally getting to sit on the sidelines of a Clipper game. He stands up an cheers his team mates and even gave a high five to assistant equipment manager and friend Matias Testi. Let's hope that the incident that happened between the two of them doesn't leave long lasting damage to Blake's psyche. Here are a few things that Blake could be agonizing over right now.

Friends occasionally have disputes, and sometimes it leads to fisticuffs. But Blake went out of his way to go after a guy who is half his size. Generally speaking, fans don't like...

Luc Mbah a Moute Has Had a Big Impact on the Starting Unit

January 14, 2016 - Posted by Agent0

I actually will applaud Doc, but not for what the OP is suggesting. What I will applaud Doc for is putting and keeping Luc in the starting lineup. The Clippers don't have anyone at SF who is a "must start" type, and many were iffy about it, but with that situation, Luc was the perfect glue guy to choose out of all the options, and he's done a great job.

People might be glaring over some of the things he does, but the starting lineup with Luc has been outrebounding their opponents.

The starting lineup with Luc plays mpg. In those minutes, the are:

Three Routes to a Championship

November 22, 2015 - Posted by SamMays

In looking at the teams that have won championships over the last ten years or so, there seems to me to be three ways of doing it.

1. Golden State. They were extremely fortunate in the draft and the players they drafted developed into NBA stars with surprising quickness, especially given where they went in the draft. The main ones were Curry, Thompson, Barnes and Green. None were #1 picks. Yet they became stars in this league while they were still under their rookie deals, which meant they were cheap so the team could afford pay or bring in good players to surround them. Livingston, Bogut,...

Worrying Tendencies from Preseason Games

October 15, 2015 - Posted by Paris_Clipper

Overall the preseason games are just that: the preseason games - they don't matter. But there are some bad tendencies that have appeared that we seem to have not corrected at all.

One of the main things is REBOUNDING. It seems to have gotten even worse from last year, what with Smith playing the center and Pierce the the PF for the second team with no Cole Aldrich to be seen. Once the second team gets on the floor, we get pounded on the boards, every time. In all games we lost, we got out-rebounded by a large margin. We had meager 6 offensive boards while shooting 36% from the...

Lance Stephenson Stats Discussion/Analysis

August 22, 2015 - Posted by Agent0

Lance Stephenson is 25 years old. There was a pattern of improvement from 11-12 (21 years old) to 13-14 (23 years old), which makes sense for a young player. Purely production wise, based on what we've seen from many years of the NBA and many players, 14-15 was likely an outlier poor season. 13-14 could be an outlier season too, but that depends on the rate of production we see this season. If 13-14 is an outlier, then his true baseline rate of production would most likely lie somewhere between 12-13's and 13-14's production.

So if that is the case, then Lance's baseline per 36 production...

Clippers vs Rockets - What REALLY Happened - Maybe!

May 18, 2015 - Posted by BaadMaster

Rational men and women would wonder how a sports team, which the Vegas Odds makers installed as favorites (when we were up 3-1) to win this year's NBA Championship, could flame out so ignominiously.

Everyone here has theories. It is the coach. (Hindsight, yes, would have dictated Hack-A-Dwight when we were up nineteen; this is immaterial.) Some CTBer's, with good logic, feel that the J-Team, JJ and Jamal, blew it. I was of this ilk. Other said we have no "superstar closer" when the endgame nears. Close, but no cigar.

All one has to do is look at Phil Jackson's last ride with...

Clippers: The Foul Machines

March 19, 2015 - Posted by Agent0

One overlooked massive defensive issue that has the potential to cause a lot of problems in the playoffs, and actually was a big part of what lost the series vs Memphis in 12-13 is that the Clippers are HACKS!

This team is 29th in opponent FT/FGA and rank 28th in opponent FTM. This isn't new. They were 29th in 11-12 and 12-13 under VDN, which was still bad, but they had the saving grade in 12-13 that they also led the league in forcing turnovers. Of course I've expressed it before that while that defense looks good in the regulars season, against disciplined teams, if you're primary mode...
