    It's not realistic. The clippers have an easy schedule the rest of the way. We have a slight chance to catch denver....but if Utah stays ahead of Mavs and thunder it makes a lot more sense to stay 4th. Why be 3rd and have a tougher first round matchup? And we probably match up better against Lakers than clippers for round 2.

    How do you only win a game by 15 points when the other team has shot around 16% from the 3pt from 42 shots? And they scored more free throws points than us.

    If they're going to say this was a statement type of performance from the Clippers, then I would be very concerned for them in the playoffs. If we shot as well as they did from the 3pt line, we would have won the game.

    We played and shot as bad as I can remember.... and we only lost by 15 points. Lol

    We won't win the championship tonight, but I very much doubt the Clippers will.

    Right. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time. So discouraging.

    Lol, are u serious? Dude, they were up by damn near 30 for a large portion of the game. Stop it...

    The 4th quarter was irrelevant. We were down by almost 30 when the regular rotations were in.

    This is a post someone would make if they didn’t actually watch the game. We were outclassed in every way. The Clippers looked like a serious contender for the title. We looked like an expired balogna and mayo sandwich.

    That's what I said. If we shot as well as the Clippers did from the 3pt line, we would have won the game.

    The Clippers went into the game with the intention of clogging the paint and hoping we missed a lot of 3pt shots. Risk reward type of tactics. Worked out now.... won't work out if they play us in a playoff series.

    2-3 seed doesn't matter anymore, we need a self-inspect.

    Toyota Center isn’t a great home court advantage, but it’s still preferable to four games against the Lakers at Staples Center.

    Agreed. Green defense is lacking against physical players luke Harrell.

    Need to see what Bruno and DMC can contribute.

    Younger longer explosive players who can give team shot of energy is needed badly.

    6'9 Jonah Bolden (7'3 wingspan, 24 yrs) > 6'8 Jeff Green (7'1 wingspan, 33 yrs)

    6'6 Justin Anderson (230 lbs 7'0 wingspan 43" vert) > 6'6 Danuel House (215 lbs 6'8 wingspan 33" vert)

    6'3 Tyler Johnson (42" vert 6'7 wingspan 35% 3ball) > 5'9 Chris Clemons (40" vert 6'2 wingspan 35%)

    6'7 Ryan Broekhoff (6'10 wingspan 40% 3ball) > 6'3 Ben McLemore (6'8 wingspan 38% 3ball)

    How many former rockets play for the clippers?

    They know harden too well. Louis Williams, Beverly, Harrell.

    Half of their rotation guys played for rockets?

    Well, at least our B squad made the game look almost respectable.

    It’s too late in the season to be messing with EG anymore. We need to shore up the team chemistry and he’s nothing but a distraction.
