How will the Clippers do in the upcoming contest vs. the Brooklyn Nets. The guys must do what well to get the W? Which opposing player(s) should Los Angeles be careful of? Will the game be bombs away by both teams or defensively-oriented?

Not a smart shot by Austin, and Wes just not moving his feet.

I am not listening to Ralph, but I can ONLY hear his voice - the lob, the jam!

I have a bad feeling about Tuesday. With no Wallace, Galo, and and Bradley, the team is lacking energy. Losing Wallace is no bueno in this injury ridden season

Thornwell has been productive in the defensive end but what does he do on offense? He doesn’t cut, drive, or spot up

Love that play! Double screen at the top. DJ stays to set a second screen for Harris.

Both players seem tired.

Jordan is a lot more careful on the outlet passes, love it.

Austin hitting a nice 3!

His shot seems to be OK on a certain level of defense... very weird.

Trezl with a lot of hard work... but the offense has got to find an easier shot for him. Without space TO are prone to occur.

I LOVE me some DeMarre Carroll. Good hard foul, but not dangerous or dirty.

End the game on a 13-2 run... would've been dangerous to lose an "easy" game.

How about DJ’s free throws. He’s really been clutch at the line this year. Amazing

I am so angry. Boban and Trezz destroyed Denver. Why wasn't Boban in? Why was Doc playing small? This shouldn't have been close. Why does he love a 6'8" center? He could have blown the season. If it weren't for heroics by Austin, we would have been screwed.

ask coach pop and van Grundy why Boban didn't crack their rotation as well?

Maybe Boban is completely a situational player. Maybe they try to play him in practice but can't hang.

He is, until he is isn't. Doc said he knew Boban was going to be used He just didn't know when. I guess he was waiting to wave the white flag...errr....set him up to succeed before bringing him in the Denver game...In ALTITUDE...With a 19 point deficit. Yeah, Doc said he was unstoppable in practice 2 days prior to the game. So I guess we should thank Doc for allowing Boban to help win the game for us. See, that is what our coach does. He takes the credit like he planned to do that (I bet he says that when he falls in public too- "I meant to that"). He's the NBA's version of Donald Trump. He wants adoration for allowing us to see Boban when he raised the white flag. Since we won in ALTITUDE, with a giant on the court, he now wants to take some of that credit.

Seriously, Doc has been running that game for a while now. People should not be fooled by the emperor who has no clothes. Like I said, he's the NBA version of Donald Trump...Who brought in Ivanka (Austin) knowing nepotism was going to be cancerous.

Doc is nothing but fast-talking snake-oil salesman who can lie to a camera and not flinch...Yeah,Trump would be proud.

Oh brother...please leave your political biases behind. Now even not playing Boban is somehow linked to Trump. I’m sure there is a more suited forum for your uncalled for typical left spin.

Repped High Quality Post

The only Left and Right I’m worried about is why Wallace has been LEFT without a contract and that were headed RIGHT to the playoffs! Great game by Austin, stellar D by Thornwell. Glad we got the win!

I guess I hit a political nerve. Wasn't meant to link Boban to Trump but more to what NEPOTISM does to the workplace. I guess there was a 33% chance I would get a response like that so I will refrain touching on this subject again.

Wasn't it you who posted about Schumer crying a while back? Yes, I do believe it to be a fact.

Agreed. Wallace just makes the team so much better but I do understand why they're doing what they're doing. While it would be great that we make the playoffs, I don't see it happening without Wallace and a healthy Gallo. Tomorrow's game will tell us a lot.

You brought up some great points. This is why I don't agree with so many people giving Doc praise for our record. We are on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, and some minor coaching decisions could have won us at least a game or two, which may seem like a benign or not important fact but one or two games separates a playoff team from a 9th seed team this year. In the past, Doc has had a reasonably good quality of bench players that never got the proper time they should have. We saw many good players like Felton, Aldrich, Stephenson, Prigioni, and others never get enough time on the court. Doc's practice has always been to use five designated starters for 30 or more minutes and one 6th man, essentially a 6 man rotation to eat up all the minutes. Meanwhile we never have utilized many serviceable role players. We see this trend continue now with Boban, and again it seems to be brushed aside because from the win-loss column there doesn't appear to be a big problem. However, when you look at some of the games that were close, Doc reverts back to that same 6 man rotation. I have always stressed that our teams major strength is the plethora of players we have, and if we aren't being unpredictable with the rotations then what's the point of having all these players on the roster. For this reason, along with many others, I haven't bought in to Doc as being a good coach this year.

I don't know about 6 man rotations. I saw Lou,Thornwell,Harrell,Dekker,and Kulpatrick all play in the Brooklyn game.

Yes that was me responding to your chastising Jr. for “crying in public”. I said just like Schumer...which wasn’t a subjective comment. You on the other hand are the one who’s had a nerve touched, and continue to spew political subjective bs on a sports board. I’m sure Doc wouldn’t be pleased about you somehow tying him to Trump as he has very similar views to yours. The election is over and your side lost. Move on or go to a political board and rant.
