    No one had us winning that series. Spurs were a 61 win team. They were a huge team, #1 ranked defense, and we had Ryan Anderson at PF.

    We were supposed to win Game 6, though.

    I think we were favored after Parker went down though. I still don't understand what happened in game 5 OT and game 6.

    Those games wouldn’t happen in today’s era, nobody would be allowed to try to play with a concussion like that

    The Clippers have needed a PG forever. When George AND Kawhi are on the court, James plays that role...at a high level.. But, seeing him up his game when George was out..Prrrretty impressive. The Clippers have other weaknesses though that will keep them from winning it all. Besides, what are the odds these guys stay healthy? Good to see James find his game.

    PG and Kawhi make up a lot of Harden's deficiencies. Mainly wing defense for both, but Kawhi elevates in the playoffs whereas Harden is overall hot/cold. Harden makes the offense look so much better. The Kawhi or PG ISOs were hard to watch.

    Of course, the team only goes so far as their health does. But with these 4 HOF players, the regular season will be easier on them going into the playoffs.

    He's back.

    Stats won't demonstrate it, because he doesn't need to be aggressive all the time for this team, but this is the best James has looked since early Brooklyn days.

    james is always great in the regular season. he has nothing left to prove there. Its in the playoffs stuff starts to get weird.

    But the Clippers have 3.5 stars that wont give up so Harden is def shielded from taking on the work load.

    Hopefully PG and Kawhi will make it there.

    The Clips have not been blessed with good health to both George and Leonard.......

    I put this in the Saturday game thread. It’s more about Kashi’s numbers, but Harden’s are demonstrable too.

    Kawaii over the last 10 games

    29.4 ppg
    59.1 FG%
    57.4 3F%
    91.4 FT%

    Harden over the same 10

    18.1 ppg
    47.7 FG%
    47.5 3F%
    89.5 FT%
    team leading 11.1 +/- average
    He’s also #2 in the league in Net Rating (behind Maxey, haha). Last 10

    also, they are 12-3 since benching WB

    Yup. You could see this kind of performance coming with how good he's been looking.
