Did you hear their fans yelling out profanities at our players in their cute little country accents? more funny was a few calls where Spurs fans cheered thinking it was in their favor, found out it wasn't and then started booing and yelling. Shit cracked me up.

This is a new beginning and teams will either respect the Clippers or get fu**ed.. that's the bottom line.

Nah. Let Sperm fans celebrate 5 (going on 6) year-old championships. Live in the moment, ya know!? lol

Spurs, like Miami, have a perpetual kryptonite in the form of teams with exceptional bigs and/or athletic shooters. No surprise the Clippers and Knicks have ironically handed losses to both. The Spurs gameplan in their season matchups against LAC has differed from the one employed last post-season. And, the Clippers have improved.

I agree it's too early to make too much of anything. Just call it how it's presented, that's all. Clippers so far looking like a title contender. Let's see if their performance can persist throughout the season; they looked very promising in large stretches last season as well, but stumbled a bit towards the middle.

That march meltdown wasn't unexpected though. Injuries caught up to the team and they played an NBA record 21 games in 30 days (tons on the road and multiple back to back to backs). This year due to normal scheduling, better conditioning and more depth I don't see the same issue.

Agree though that we shouldn't put all our chips in until we see more. Clippers are near league best free throw shooting this year so Pop hasn't been using hack a shaq on us. Also CP3 isn't injured so traps won't work like they did in the playoffs.

Hmm. After re-assessing this game. First of all.

CF86 - you said Deandre Jordan made Duncan his bitch. But, while DJ only had 13 and 5, Duncan had 20 and 14. I'm confused?

Also didn't realize Stephen Jackson and Leonard were out this game.

Last thing. Saw a couple possible offensive fouls in that last possession by CP3. Not so much the forceful spin, but the little shove he gave Parker a few moments earlier. I'll have to look at it again, but certainly from originally looking at it, it's a questionable non-call.

All in all though, like Pop said after the game, Clippers went and took this game, while the Spurs didn't conjure up enough drive and desire to match their aggressiveness from the tip.

Came in here to read some thoughts on the game, and saw a bunch of Spurs fans with dangling anuses going HAM on their keyboards and needing their moms to calm them down.

Great stuff.

DJ was on the bench when Duncan did most of his damage. What I meant by that statement was DJ scored on him at will pretty much. Didn't say he outplayed Duncan, just H2H DJ got the best of him.

There were questionable calls as usual but since you noticed those things let me share a couple things. Crawford had his worst game as a Clipper. Clippers only had 13 assists and had 17 or 19 turnovers. Griffin missed 4 straight free throws late in the game (was shooting about 68 percent this year).

Butler went out with injury before Jackson so it was...

Clippers= Butler, Billups, Hill and Thompkins out

Spurs= Jackson and Leonard out.


Basically Clippers were equally shorthanded if not more and it was a road game. The Clippers won with Griffin and CP3 playing bad, team playing crappy and sloppy in general and on the back of their bench pretty much. What do you mean about lack of aggressiveness? Spurs were up 8-10 from start of game until mid 2nd quarter pretty much.

Nobody besides all the players and head coaches calling them legit title contenders. I agree most fans aren't worried though .

From who? This team isn't ANYTHING like last year. The Clippers last year were the 18th ranked defense and 25th or lower more than half the season. This year the Clippers are now the 1st or 2nd ranked defense after tonight and their bench went from one of the bottom 5 production wise to possible the 1st best in the league.

So their two biggest weaknesses last year are now what's winning their games and their strength, yet you think last years team is comparable? Not to mention a full summer to build chemistry, improvement from our core young players? Scary thing is this team is nowhere near 100 percent still.

Aggressiveness, as in from what I saw, the Clippers were balling hard and making the extra effort play. I know I'm not the only one that noticed, because Pop literally called some Spurs players "soft" citing the same things.

Gotcha on the DJ stuff. Still haven't seen him play Duncan this season sadly.

Yea, I'll give you Butler. But Clips been playing without Billups and Hill all season, whereas the Spurs have to make more immediate adjustments to the lack of shooting and defense (their best defender by far in Leonard) that's experienced by missing Jackson and Leonard.

Spurs fans should still keep it classy though. Bringing up a ring that was claimed in 2007 to validate the team now is senseless unless the discussion is pertaining to which franchise is more reputable. Which, it wasn't. You are what your record is; Spurs once again are an elite team in the West, but Clippers are right up there with them right now.
