Clippers vs. Cavs :o
Anybody else watching?
Looks like it could be the game...
I want to see if it changes if the Cavs do win.
Awesome shot moe!
I like the Cavs. I wanted them to be a better team this year. Anthony Parker and Anderson Varejao are some favorites of mine.
Go, go Cavs!
Is it just me, or do the Cavs switch too much on defense?
Nice block, JJ!
JJ Hickson has been on fire last 5-10 games? I think he's averaging 22 and 12 last 5 games! He started the season good, then went in a huge slump, but now he's killing it.
The Cavs announcers are so excited, their voices are squeaking.
It's really cute and kind of sad at the same time. Like watching orphans eat on Thanksgiving.
he's on point tonite like that shape up of his.
That almost went in crazzzzyyyyy
for the Cavs 9th win... you gotta love the NBA!
"It's really cute and kind of sad at the same time. Like watching orphans eat on Thanksgiving"
Clippers should be ashamed of themselves.
Nah... Not really. The Cavs played well. Who should be ashamed is that ref who didn't call over the back on JJ Hickson. That's just plain terrible.
If he ain't dunking, he ain't comfortable. He'll have to develop that jumper like Amare if he wants to survive. Still, good perfomance from Griffin. Just a little too much Cav's for the rest of the Clips though.
Griffin will never have a problem "surviving" in the league. He's active on the offensive glass and around the basket, so he'll always eat. Didn't he have like 32 points tonight? I don't think all of those buckets were dunks.
And his jumpshot is coming along nicely. He just needs to keep working on his moves in the low post. Teams have started trying to take away where he loves to post up on the block, so he has to adapt and get better on the other block. He needs to improve his left hand. He has to learn to be aggressive even when being double/triple teamed.
Hickson did a good job tonight though.
You can't survive on nothing but just dunks unless your a center. You need to have some sort of steady jumper. By surviving I meant being able to do more than just dunk the ball. I believe those are what we call one-trick pony's. Being active on the glass is lovely. But you always want to expand your game even further.
Griffin will always be alright....but that man can't play defense.
IF you think Blake Griffin is just a dunk. you've been watching sportscenter highlights more than the actual games.
Griffin is a TERRIBLE defender.
No one is denying that, as for the defensive end, he may get it, he may not eventually through the years. One thing is for sure, in order to play good defense, you have to be commited to it. And it seems Griffin has made many commitments, defense should be no different.
Griffin has regressed defensively.
He's not focused at that end and honestly doesn't even try hard. JJ Hickson had four blocks tonight based on effort. Griffin could get those same weakside blocks, but doesn't waste his energy doing it. He'd rather save his energy for offense and rebounding.
I'm a huge Griffin supporter, but he's starting to upset me on defense. Other than moving his feet well and drawing a charge every now and then, he's terrible at defending.
Hey nomoney what's the official stat line for fransico elson's head shine? He just stepped in the game and the shine is amazing!
1st in the NBA
Did anyone else notice the Cavs announcer crack his voice?
Didn't I mention that?
To be honest; I just scrolled straight to post a comment. I didn't read anything.
The Clippers should be ashamed....actually i take that back they know they are bad so this was just another lose for them. now two games behind last seasons record at this point. Some one mentioned playoffs for the clippers
"Playoffs.......playoffs... are you kidding me"-Jim Mora
"they are who we thought they were"-Dennis Green
I wish i would have watched this game though. Who was checking Jamison and Hickson, ( or better yet who was trying to check them),cuz they were killing. Does anyone on the Clippers play defense for more than just spurts??
LeBron needs 2 go HAM & black-ball the Clips since they had to be the odd balls.
I'm sick of hearing people talk so much shit about Griffin about how he will only be a dunker, has no moves, etc.. This is his first year actually playing in the NBA! Cut the guy some slack. No great player came into the league fully developed. He can't develop all his skills in one season of play. He has the worth ethic to be great, and a summer olympics/world championship with coach K would step up his defense a notch. He already has the motor to be a great defender. He just needs the right coaching.
If only his sorry team had that same motor and work ethic
If there is a team in the NBA that would snap the Cavs losing streak it would the Clippers. Not that they're the worst team - crap just happens to this franchise.
