    This game makes me think it’s ok not having either Harden or Wes on the court. Keep those guys fresh. We are under utilizing Gordon and Rivers.

    Rivers imo def needs to be playing more than mclemore.

    I don’t understand how he overtook rivers in the rotation.

    and I know house played well tonight and there different size and position but rivers deserves some of his minutes.

    He played like he was possessed by Kobe's soul.

    Or maybe he was.

    Kobe wanted to kick the Jazz ass one more time.

    EG is a great Rocket. One of Morey’s best moves.

    Loved his postgame interview. I think it's been lost somewhere amongst his early injuries and his transition to a role-player, but coming into the NBA, Eric Gordon was touted as a future franchise player who could shoot, drive, and defend. Hell, even in his early days with the Clippers and first few games with New Orleans you could make the case that he'd be an all-nba player somewhere down the line.

    I'm happy his knee is feeling better now, and happy we have him.

    MDA needs to create a squad for Harden westbrook and Gordon. A lineup that will allow them to get the max out of everybody and then play these three together heavy minutes in the 4th

    Channelled his Inner Kobe. Thanks for having fun again.

    How did he get 20 freebies though?

    Bottom line we moved the basketball and everyone knew they were going to get shots tonight. Our offense is stagnant when Russ and James dominate. Russ and James have to sacrifice shots for others to get into the game.

    Unfortunately Morey can't strike while the iron is hot and trade this fat boy for a wing or pf. But nice game for him I guess

    I'm assuming McLemore gets more playing time because he fits with Harden and Westbrook on the court better as he's a much better catch and shoot player than Rivers.

    River's skillsets are rather redundant with both Harden and Westbrook playing. He's a solid ball handling guard who can drive to the rim really well. Well Harden and Westbrook are all time greats at that particular skillset.

    Rivers always going to excel when one of Harden or Westbrook is down.
