Recapping the Enemy: The View From LA (Clippers)

Recapping the Enemy: The View From LA (Clippers)

Pre-. In- and Post-game views from Clippers fans The following are actual comments gathered from Clippers forums Pre-game views We need Chris and DJ to be sharp and JJ and Jamal have to get it going early for us to have a real shot to win.We need to win the battle of the boards if we get beat on the boards it will be a very long night. I don't have a good feeling about this one. Games against the Grizzlies always turn into an ugly, bitty encounter, that's just their style. Just the opposite of the kind of game we prefer. They are good at what they do but will always be found out by the...

Bucks vs. Lakers Final Score: Sorry Lakers become less sorry, blow out sorrier Bucks in fourth 101-93

Bucks vs. Lakers Final Score: Sorry Lakers become less sorry, blow out sorrier Bucks in fourth 101-93

This is how you don't want to start a road trip. The Milwaukee Bucks needed some serious clutch shooting from Brandon Knight and O.J. Mayo to beat the Lakers in overtime three weeks ago. Tonight they had neither of those guys, they couldn't shoot worth a lick, and they came away with a loss for their troubles. Kicking off a four-game Western swing against the league's fourth-worst team, the Bucks struggled early, recovered for a while and then were utterly obliterated in the fourth quarter, as the Lakers overcame a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to wallop them 36-18 over the game's final...

Recap: Spurs snap four game losing streak in Sacramento; 107-96

San Antonio snaps their four-game losing streak in Sacramento as they best the Boogie-less Kings. The Spurs' looked to avoid a five-game losing streak tonight in Sacramento as we approach the end of the annual Rodeo Road Trip. As strange as this season has been for the Spurs, we need to count our blessings when realizing how chaotic it's been for the Kings. With the firing of coaches, the obvious incompetence of an owner and untimely injuries, it's been a difficult season for Sacramento. Luckily for Kings fans though, it looks like they finally have a stable coach in George Karl. Speaking...

Golden State Warriors Come Out and Play, Crush Raptors 113-89

The hits keep on coming for the Toronto Raptors as they get embarrassed on their home floor by the Warriors, losing 113-89. Nothing makes sense anymore. Dwane Casey called it a "woodshed butt-kicking." Kyle Lowry was surprised by the franchise record-worst 1-for-19 first quarter. Tyler Hansbrough attempted to fight Festus Ezeli. And the Raptors lost 113-89 to the Warriors at the ACC. Nothing about this team makes sense anymore (OK, except maybe that Hansbrough bit). From the opening tip, as the Warriors jumped out to a quick lead they never relinquished, the Raptors looked lost. The...

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is doubtful against the Spurs on Friday after hurting his ankle and hip Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
