    1. That was an awesome game last night. Kudos to the Clippers and Paul for shedding that silly choker label. JJ Redick was terrific this series and hit several big time 3s. I am pleasantly surprised how valuable Redick has become.

    2. I said it in an earlier thread – as Jamal Crawford goes, so go the Clippers. Paul, Griffin and Redick to some extent will give you what they give you, but as putrid as the Clips bench is, getting contributions from Crawford is critical to keeping games close. And he came up pretty big last night.

    3. @ 2 – I agree and its not a coincidence that Crawford led the Clippers last night with a +11.

    4. Spurs, Rockets, Warriors (probably), Cavs/Bulls/Hawks. If the Clips win a ring this year, they’ll definitely have earned it.

      Unless Washington ends up winning the East. In that case, they should wear their West Champions t-shirts to the trophy ceremony.

    5. We’re living in a world where Wittman wins every first road game in every playoff series he coaches in. Wow.

    6. Unless Washington ends up winning the East. In that case, they should wear their West Champions t-shirts to the trophy ceremony.

      Except that means Washington beat the Hawks and the Bulls/Cavs, which would kinda make them legit. I’m almost hoping KD ditches OKC for Washington next year.

    7. To be honest, Washington is playing very well in the playoffs. I can’t understand how a bad coach like Wittman can turn it around and start letting his team shoot more threes all of a sudden.

    8. Hawks losing at home to the Wiz today seems so similar to our game 1 loss to Indiana in 2013. An unnecessarily long 1st round series against an inferior opponent, followed by a listless effort and losing home court advantage. That loss cost us the series, the same thing may happen to Atlanta.

    9. Off topic, but I hope the Yankees don’t regress hard because I’m starting to really like the squad.

    10. @10, I’d give the Wizards even odds to win that series. If not be slightly favored. The Bulls, especially with an apparently declining Noah, do not match up well against them.
