    Bucks and Clippers games are what matters the most. The rest doesn’t mean much to me.

    4th quarter vs Bucks
    Bucks scores 39
    Giannis plays 28 minutes for the game
    Bledsoe plays 16 minutes for the game

    4th quarters vs Clippers
    Clippers score 42
    Kawhi plays 28 minutes for the game, Harden plays 42 minutes.
    Beverley plays 19 minutes for the game
    Final 1.00 minute, clippers score 10 points, 2 free throws only

    1 minute = 10 points
    48 minutes = 480 points

    82 games = 39,360 points that the Clippers would score if they kept up that 10pts/minute pace all year long!!!!!

    your point about minutes should be taken seriously

    the math is a little whack

    Indeed it’s a little whack, but I agree 4th quarter defense is critical to success.

    Giannis played 28 because he was in foul trouble and eventually fouled out...same with Bev

    Kawhi played 28 because he had missed some games, and his body can’t seem to handle a full regular season...he played 40 minutes against the Rockets last game, and then immediately had to start doing load management

    the Rockets are also shorthanded at the moment

    this thread is dumb as hell

    4th quarter defense matters, and so does 4th quarter reffing...Clippers couldn’t get to the line all night, and then the minute the 4th quarter starts, they got 5 Hardens on the floor...

    Kind of a microcosm of the last few seasons, isn’t it?

    Under MDA, absolutely, I think Harden rounding out to midseason form by November, earlier than normal. Normally by December.

    So if we play the whole game like it's the last minute of the game we could explode for 480 points

    4th quarter blew out again tonight, no defensive solution.

    8:47 remaining
    110:105
    Next 6 minutes
    135:113
    Mavs score 25 in 6 minutes

    then Garbage time

    4th quarter terrible defense again, no defensive solution. 18:34.

    Spurs are playing without leader, this year all star.

    Terrible defense at 4th quarter against Memphis.

    tucker and harden are tired. House and Ben are trying to play offense.

    I'm still convinced Dantoni and Morey have the same philosophy on defense.. and that is it isn't important as long as we're still jacking up 60 threes a game.

    We just happened to have good defense that one year because we had 3 point shooters who also happened to play solid defense (Luc, Ariza, PJ, CP3).

    Now that 3 of those guys are gone and we haven't replaced that defensive skillset, we're basically just a team that jacks up a ton of 3s with piss poor defense.

    This way of relying so heavily on the 3 pointer and refusing to take any 2s clearly doesn't work at the NBA level. It won Morey his "rings" in the D-League so now he's convinced that it will work when in fact, it has come to eliminate us in the playoffs when we go ice cold.
