    I'll take any kind of wins: ugly, pretty, or in between. Let's move on. But, wow, Ariza can't hit the side of a barn, he has become the same "bricker" he was during his last tenure. Give it up Trevor, drive to the basket, stop throwing the long balls, you can barely hit the backboard.

    Still, thankful for a win, no matter how we got it. One game up on DAL, we're now at#5 with Clippers moving up to #4.

    Harden didn't seem too taxed by this game.

    Capela needs more games to get the nerves out. But we need him because we need to rest Dwight.

    You can look at Capela and tell he can play way better than he did. He was definitely all nerves out there.

    We're at 4, Clips are at 5.

    As for the game, putting the ball in the basket more times would be super. ETA: I totally agree w/ the above re: Capela. He is so visibly nervous -- I think he'll be fine if he can get out of his own head. I'll be so excited when he finally scores lol.

    Is speaks wonders for McHale and this team that Harden had to play 35 minutes and drop 37 just to beat the Lakers D league team

    No need to sweat the Clippers, folks. Just look at their upcoming schedule. They'll have to play out of their minds to keep pace with the top 4 teams.

    Ariza can't shoot nor dunk.

    Patrick Beverley can't shoot.

    Glad to get the win.

    Also thought provoking. This league is a business and Leslie Alexander's comments are very revealing about the nature of this league and how deceiving it is to the average fan. I'm sure at the end of the day a guy like Harden would rather have his league stay competitive and keep generating that money rather than lose the facade...

    If only the trevor ariza from the first 10 games was real . Trevor shooting 37% from three all season , you could atleast erase 3 losses.
    Morey has to find a way to get us one real shooter who isnt 37 ,cant dribble/defend and 6-1.

    Meh... I l one to blame McHale as much as anybody, but this was all about missed opportunities. Seriously, I don't know how many bricks Ariza and Beverley out up, but that was the only reason why this wasn't a 30 point blowout.

    This. Not sure how McHale is responsible for guys missing the widest of wide open looks.

    Ariza & Beverley have to be the worst PG & SF combo on offense in the entire league.
