Q's Keys To The Game
  1. 1] Rebound the ball. Clippers are 30th in rebounds per game and tied 29th in rebound differential. Pathetic display and they need to crash the boards, especially Blake, who is playing softer than 3-play Charmin.
  2. 2] Force turnovers. Clippers are the second best when it comes to turnovers per game, and 6th in opponents giveaways. Capitalizing on the giveaways will be vital.
  3. 3] Be relentless. Follow the tagline in the ad man, and actually play. So far, its "Be Loud" Part II, and those were some horrid days.



Q's Quote:
"Really don't know what to say here, we have been playing like absolute crap and won't be shocked if that continues, but go to say, we will take this."

Q's Predicition: Clippers Win 117-109
Prediction Record: 5-2

For this game, at least, the Clippers are back to playing Clipper/Vinny ball. I can tell this is how they like playing.

Mr. B probably said to Doc, "I don't care what you have to do but I want to see the team I bought, not this (DOC ball)". Doc had to ask the players how they wanted to play and they told him their old way.

Time will tell. But, I'm very happy to see last year's Clippers tonight. (It's still late in the 3rd --- 88/66 --- we can still lose, but we look so much better.)

EDIT: Half way through 4th, 6 positions in a row and we turned ball over went from 26 up to 11 up. REVERTED ....
