    These Lakers fans celebrating, trying to ignore the reality that Kawhi couldn't give a about the RS

    While old-ass Lebron and soft ass Anthony Davis play their hearts out against below .500 teams every night.

    I'd rather the Lakers beat them in the playoffs, but let's not pretend like they actually have a shot

    Nothing to celebrate. Clippers are good, Kiwi is great but not some unbeatable force, when his primary support is playoff pee and sometimesy Lou Will....
    These teams may not even meet in the WCF like I said one of them gonna get upset.
    And I call bull that Clippers weren't trying to win last night. Has KL played any more mins than that all season?
    I'm not for using load management as an all year pass to excuse losses.
    They lost. Maybe getting blown out by Minny didn't mean but they wanted that one.. And they had PG much longer last night than Celts had Jalen Brown.

    Charles Barkley on TNT was like : “ oh their tired, they just wanna make the all star break”

    But this get is always bashing players how soft and lazy and weak they are? Lmao . I forgot what game it was I think Kenny said “ lakers gassed out “ and Charles was saying how championships contenders should have that extra push or switch like wtf lmao.

    The issue with the clippers is the minutes disturbition I think. Harrel literally played 30 in minutes straight. Why give Zubac a en raise and not play him?. Zubac is more than capable of going at Theis from Boston. If clippers are healthy come playoff time and doc stops sucking Lou and Harrell this team will most likely be in the finals. But I’m hoping doc keeps being stubborn for our sake lmao

    Not being a Kwa apologist as Tatum outplayed him in the stretch. But key back to back plays came at 130-130 2nd OT.
    Kwa brought it upcourt and pulled up for a 25 footer. Tatum did the Heil Hitler salute defense and hit Kwa right after realease. Normally I'm not big on calling a foul when players hands lightly "clap" after a shot. But this was too close, like a millisecond after he shot. It was a foul. So back we go the other way Clipps on D. Somebody knocks the ball loose from the driver and it's going to go out of bounds. Kwa did a nifty Klaw retrieval as the ball was out of bounds and did a behind-the-back lob to get the ball cleanly back inbounds. Both Morris and Shamet failed to get into position to receive Kwas throwback so it rolled quite a ways to a Celtic for the lucky non turnover then scored layup.

    GNob would have anticipated that save pass by Kawhi. Indeed while all NBA players should have seen it coming, it is only the higher BBIQ players that would gotten in position to catch the save.

    I suck at capturing replays or I'd post it.

    But ya Kawhi was not impressive that game. Too many Kombe type chucks.
    Doc re ed? Ya. How did he win that 2015 playoff series? Oh ya the other coach.

    Fella's nobody is going to spontaneously combust by saying that the Clippers have been kind of disappointing and have flaws. All the NBA teams are flawed. Their defense is a train wreck. They have players who are adept at getting their own shot but not so much for others. Even Kawhi struggled against the double team. The offense. No big deal. The defense isn't going to get fixed because somebody says "playoffs". This is Kawhi's 9th season. He has two les. The teams he plays on are not omnipotent. The Clippers aren't the Jordan era Bulls, recent Warriors or Showtime Lakers bored with the regular season. They still cover banners with pictures. Paul George is making Bill Walton seem like A.C Green in comparison.

    If you're "anybody but the Lakers" there's still plenty of hope in Denver, Houston and Utah. Because if things continue as they have there isn't going to be ESPN/ABC/TNT orgasmic fantasy of a Clippers/Lakers final. Those teams finish outside the top 2 seeds and have to beat the Nuggets, Rockets or Jazz without home-court and advance to play an even higher seed...........

    These games count no matter how hard some try to convince themselves otherwise. Nobody outside of Golden State and the Spurs have won jack excrement since Kobe led Lakers were at their peak. These teams are no sure thing to even come out of the West. And right now, with apologies to Skip Bayless, Colin Cowherd and bunch of others whose opinion means nothing except for the amount of "hits" they get from clueless Laker fans and haters rising to the bait, its less likely to be the Clippers.

    By the way. The "Toronto Miracle" looks less so now. Not sure the Raptors didn't provide Kawhi with a better coach and supporting cast than he has now. Back to the denialfest.

    2 OT on the road against a good team when you're down two starters isn't that bad, tbh. Minnesota was the only egregious loss on this road trip, honestly.

    That being said, we aren't sniffing a championship unless Doc either improves or gets fired. Currently, he has Tom Thibodeau's rotations and Mark Jackson's offense. Trez should never be playing so many minutes in a row. You could tell he was gassed in OT. Doc is just biased against Zubac for some bizarre reason - even though Zubac defends, rebounds, and has good chemistry with Kawhi in the pick-and-roll. McGruder should be out of the rotation entirely, Amir Coffey is already better than him. Lou actually played like 2018/2019 Lou against the Celtics, but he's been looking more like Playoff Jamal all season and Doc gives him superstar minutes. These are simple things that even fans can see but Doc can't.

    The beds been made, but what other stars were potentially available othen then Playoff Pee.
    I don't get the hype of PP.
    Surely some other stars would have jumped at the chance to team with Kwa in LA. Or were simply none available?

    I would have like to see him sign a 1 year deal with Toronto to go for the repeat.
    He could still have gone to LA this following year regardless.
    Much better FA's available.

    at you farmers thinking 2020 Kawhi is the same version as 2017. I don't know if that dude still exists other than in spurts.

    He played 46 minutes last night. Chucked up 27 shots (made only 10). Yeah, he tried to win.

    Even Sweet Lou chucked up 33 shots. 60 shots between them...and they still lost.

    Biggest loss? Palmdale P. Hammies are tricky. Can they survive without him, still load manage Kiwi, and still maintain HCA for the playoffs? Time will tell.

    And before you say HCA don't matter, the Clipps are 15-13 on the road (basically 0.500 team away from Staples). They are also 14-11 vs teams > 0.500.

    Then they downgraded (defensively) going from Harkless to Morris. Tatum went off last night was no coincidence.

    But yeah, keep your faith in Croc Rivers. He was able to get Lob City out of the 1st round a few times. Maybe he'll do that with this group too

    At making fun of a player's age, supposed "softness" (aka not enough of a stereotype), as well as how hard they're playing, while ignoring the fact that S bag is the biggest pussy in the league and his antics are clearly hurting their team morale.

    The Clippers have such a depth of talent/matchup advantage over the Lakers that barring significant injury, I still think they at least get to the Finals, but I give the Lakers a puncher's chance because of the presence of 2 top 5 players, better chemistry and due to the age of a bunch of them, increased desperation/urgency.

    The Lakers better get the chip this year. Lebron in almost on empty.

    GSW coming back next year healthy, rested, added Wiggins, and a high draft pick.

    Nonsense. It's gonna boil down to the stars, not the scrubs. And for as much as AD has been clowned for being injury prone, what about Kiwi? He's missed more games than AD not only this year, but the last couple of years:

    2016 KL - (10) AD - (21)
    2017 KL - (8) AD - (7)
    2018 KL - (73) AD - (7)
    2019 KL - (22) AD - (26)
    2020 KL - (13) AD - (7)

    Last year is misleading because Nawlins held him out of games because they were butthurt. Fact: KL is more injury prone. AD doesn't load manage, but KL does.

    And now PG is hurt too. Based on this year, him and Kawhi are injury prone. AD and LBJ are more healthy.

    You farmers clown all you want but the best ability is availability. We'll see how things shake out during the playoffs. I like the Lakers chances.
