I wonder if this loss last night hurt Doc more than our loss to Lakers Game 7 in 2010 when they got 41 foul shots to our 18 and just 21 in the last qtr. Lakers shot a pathetic 39 % and the guy who walks on water, Kobe, was 6 for 25 or 25% and we couldn't hold the 13 pt lead we had end of 3rd qtr. Of course, that was game 7. Clippers are still in it. I don't like LA teams, Lakers, Dodgers etc. but I sort of associate Clippers with San Diego where they stared and I like Doc too. Rooted for the Nets and KG & PP too but they ain't gonna beat the Heat...don't know if anyone will.
But Paul losing the ball with 6 seconds left was unforgivable...give it to Griffin and let him drive to the basket,
..and y do u think kobe was at 39% and lakes were lovelacing? becuase of doc's scheme! not his fault if ray missed wide open shots into the ocean or that pp could not buy a bucket.. it happens! defense is doc's trademark.. guys scoring is bout the coach gettin them in position, nothin u can do.. like nets, kidd couldnt even get a credible shot to b missed. doc always gets good looks, about guys making it or not. u think durant is lovelacing on his own? big part is the d strategy of doc! LIKE BELICHICK, HE ALMOST ALWAYS takes away the megastar or reduces him.. 'less his name is james!

I went back and checked the Box. First let me say you are correct that in the closing minutes just 1-2 baskets from either RA or PP would have sealed it but they could not buy a basket or a rebound. I was incorrect that Lakers shot 39%, they actually shot 32.5% and 20% for 3s and Kobe was not at 39% but I repeat 6 for 24 or 25%...he'd been a goat had they lost !!! Again 41-18 foul shots with just 21 in 4th qtr proved insurmountable but the real difference was their 2nd chance points with 53 to 40 rebs so the13 extra shots allowed them to camouflage the pathetic 39% shooting which much of it was Doc's defense. Gasol & Bynum schooled KG in the paint but don't you think had Perkins not gone down in game 6 he'd made a difference in the post. Actually, Sheed played a pretty good game but he'd rather shoot 3s than bang in the post but w/o him, the game wouldn't have been close. Anyway, all yesterday's newpaper.
