Time to right the ship after a tough loss.
It's my birthday tomorrow.
8 pm start tonight as they are giving the Bull Gang extra time to turn the arena over from hockey this afternoon.
Is this on ABC, ESPN or NBC sports Boston?
Clip the Clippers' wings
Crush kill destroy stress
I’m looking for a blistering start. I’d like to see the guys in green moving the ball to the open man, hitting their looks, and building a double digit lead. Then I’d like to see some aimless laziness injected into the game. Some half-assed heroball where everyone sort of treats it like an intramural game. Then once the Clippers creep back into, I’d like to see some real heroball. The higher effort stuff from KI and Tatum. No more sleepwalking. When that fails to put the Clippers away, I’d like to see the team finally revert in the last five minutes to playing with effort and focus much like they did in opening the early lead. Of course at this point in the game there probably won’t be time to build another big lead and SSS will introduce some luck factors so we may get treated to a contest that really comes down to the final minutes. Hopefully we can all exhale with a minute or two still on the clock and enjoy another win that leaves us all with that feeling of semi-satisfied discontent. Kinda like when Baynes hits one of those threes that looks so bad that it leaves you feeling an odd mix of momentarily satisfied yet mildly uncomfortable and even a little confused.
Tommy is calling the game. I'm so happy.
Was not expecting to hear Tommy
Absolute erasure by Al
Mook? Why doe?
So good to hear Tommy again.
I can only imagine how much the Clips announcers are struggling with all these new guys
Basketball gods willing we get the Kyrie & Al show in the playoffs and I for one, cannot freaking wait.
I just want to make love to this post. Well done.
It doesn't concern anyone else that Brad has never seen anything in the first 6 minutes of a game that made him think "Hmm, if I substitute this guy for this guy, it could help?"
other then Baynes/Theis and Horford occasionally, this group just refuses to set screens for each other, which leads to a lack of cutting or movement
Theis mit drei!
GH over Jaylen off the bench first makes me sad every time.
I think JB should be starting over Mook tbh. But what do I know.
Tommy’s energy tonight is infectious.
Gordo with three for the haters.
right on cue, Theis with about a half dozen picks and screens
Jaylen should play more.
Brown being aggressive and finishing. Love it.
Gordon missed a free throw? Damn, broke the streak. Gorman said earlier the C's were the 1st team in NBA history to not miss a free throw in 3 straight games.
PLAY JAYLEN MORE
He is special.
Just got home. Great to see Tommy back Let's Go!
C's getting calls in this quarter they haven't gotten all season. Kyrie just got a call on a drive, via the body. That never, ever happens.
The Theis Is Right
Theis ist das mensch!
Nice steal and 3!
Ya know, I think the Clippers efforts to tank the rest of the year are gonna work...
Hey, Clips, you can be a little more subtle on the tanking.
I heard something on the radio coming home. There are three players with a top 20 true shooting percentage and (I think it was) net rating: KD, Steph Curry, and Theis. Can that be right?
That is incredible but if the Celtics got to the line as frequently as they should that streak never would have gotten off the ground.
I want 40 in the first quarter..
This game feels like it's moving super slow
Good to see him driving, but Hayward doesn't leave a vapor trail when he drives to the hoop.
Gordon is driving hard tonight.
Very true, but if the refs are going to screw us, we may as well screw everyone else and mess up the record books.
He never has, honestly. The difference I’ve seen thus far is his approach, ie playing less aggressively than he did with Utah.
C's have 11 free throw attempts and the Clippers have 9. This is what a slightly above average NBA game feels like, but it's molasses for a normal C's game.
Considering Zee German had a 40+ night or something insane like that I wouldn't be surprised
