>Warriors are lucky for not facing this team..
the rockets got super lucky in that series everyone knew that, the clippers were in a 7 game war with the spurs the series before while the rockets played some nobody, fatigue set in and the rockets hit a LOT o lucky shots,
had the warriros played the clips in the conf finals I doubt they make the finals

What are some other situations most likely to occur this game?

I don't understand your argument, like you really think if they faced the Warriors, fatique would'n't have gotten them there...

5th game of the season for both squads.
This is why I love this damn game!
That's some sub freezing stuff right there.
The bantz is real, yo.
>Harden is gifted 40+ free throws in the 2nd game.
The rockets were lucky in that the refs always bailed them out and that Dallas imploded just right in the beginning of the playoffs.

How badly must the Dubs smack the 2nd team from L.A. for all these Clips "fans" to go back to supporting the better socal team?
Oi Canada remember when you guys played well until mid-season, after all the teams actually started playing, that's going to happen again. You guys are just an easy 1st round for whoever faces you.
>People pumped for a Clippers vs Warriors game
What a time to be alive.
for a back up center?
>anything can happen
>and probably will
I'd rather have curry out there so he can shoot the warriors out of the game, the media jizzes over him when he shoots them to wins but he shoots them out of games just as much desu
selfish play doesn't win shit
has traveling honestly just been ripped out of the rulebook?
>Clippers fans talking about losing
>3-1 and still lost to the Rockets
They probably would have said something like
>wow kinda crazy teams can change and get better/worse wow free agency and drafting is crazy wow o wow trades? Trades???? TRADES???????
fuck you faggot without Paul he would average 3 points a game. I don't care how good your defense is, defense is no where near as important as offense.
>You're young but the Warriors are arguably the best NBA franchise in History.
are you serious? from 1977-2010 they were literally clippers-tier
>muh baron davis
fun teams yes but not comparable to the lakers and celtics' history
you never know what you are getting with j crossover he's like curry sometimes he can get 20 in a quarter like nothing and sometimes he will shoot you out of a game that's why he's a bench player
I don't know much NBA history, I live in Kentucky so I watch college ball mostly. I know MJ is considered the best ever, do you think Curry will surpass him? Steph is a good scorer and MVP on a really good young team. Can he be "GOAT"?
>those count as key acquistions for e!spn
you forget that he singlehandly won a game in the playoffs vs the rockets last year by dropped 25 points off the bench?
you forget that he was a top 10 draft pick?
iirc he made a ton of big shots when he was a duke too
I love the Clippers...
They have a core of all-star players but continue to replace last years shit players with even shitty tier players.
I can always count of my clips heading straight into the 2nd round.
>Curry sat the whole quarter
>Still lose the quarter
I'm a bit biased because I'm a dubs fan, but how come the Warriors are hated with so much vitriol now? Is it only because we won? Our players are likable for the most part, I don't get it.
don't forget the young and spry Paul Pierce m8

fluke. where was he when they were choking a 3-1 deficit?
>you forget that he was a top 10 draft pick?
so was darko, olowokandi, brown, bennett, oden etc.
>iirc he made a ton of big shots when he was a duke too
so did jimmer
>getting picked in the top 10 of a loaded draft
>scoring 25 points off the bench in a critical playoff game
you should be a politician or a merry go round bruh because you are gr8 at spinning things
The Dubs are just lucky that the Clippers have ZERO BENCH.
It's like they somehow avoid playing against perfect, nonexistant, teams all the way to the playoffs every year now.
And, I won't even get into the tremendous luck they apply once there.
It's like they think that limiting their players' minutes, and thus remaining relatively fresh and injury free, is not just a sign that they are the luckiest team ever.
>cheering for a team where austin rivers is playing regular minutes
>Aldridge looking like shit for the Spuredditors
>Clippers are clippers
>beat the Shitlies by 50
>Cavs don't have a player who can guard Steph
Just give us the trophy already
>>getting picked in the top 10 of a loaded draft
1998 was a loaded draft. Pierce, Carter, Dirk, Bibby, Jamison, Hughes, Williams, Harrington, Lewis, Mobley
Michael Olowokandi was picked 1st overall so he must be good cuz he was the top pick in a loaded draft
>you will never have a threesome with JJ Redick's wife and her twin
why even live
Let's make sure totally avoid crediting the Warriors for their success, and instead constantly blame the players and the teams that they beat for being a poor team.
It couldn't possibly be a case where this team from Oakland is just so good that they outplay really great teams.
That's just impossible!
>the smoldering rubble of the San Diego Clippers
what'd you say about my wife you faggot
>you didn't prove your point
to me it makes him an okay player with potential, ppl shit on him like he's the worst player in the league, he's not a future goat or anything but solid
you don't get drafted top 10 unless you have potential
ur mom pushed her ass into my lance last night faggot
>showing this bitch who's boss
>you don't get drafted top 10 unless you have potential
Oh so I guess Greg Oden, Shawn Bradley, Kwame Brown, and Darko Milic had potential right? Kill yourself. I honestly don't know why I'm replying to a literal nigger that doesn't know shit. Being drafted Top 10 doesn't mean shit. Kobe wasn't even drafted in the Top 10 and he'll probably go down as the the 2nd greatest player to ever play the game.
ALL those players have potential the time they got drafted, wes johnson was and is althetic as fuck, udoh was gr8 defensively and al-farook could do a little of everything,
not everyone with potential pans out and it's too early to call for austin
again I'm not saying he's the gr8est ever but he's a lot better than most ppl give him credit for and has room to improve
honestly, after being competitive for so long I am enjoying the dumpster fire this year. LEL:
HOW THE FUCK WAS THAT A FOUL FUCKING REFBALL BULLSHIT
I don't think you understand what potential means, all those players had crazy upside which is why they were drafted so high.
potential doesn't mean sure fire all star it just mean potential to be great because of either physical attributes or skill or combo of both
nah he's not
He averaged 7 points on 40% shooting, and 1.7 assists
1.7. Please just stop, it's fine to say he's not that good. I don't understand why you feel like you have to justify everything your team does, and that every player is good or can contribute frequently. That's not how basketball, or really any sport, works.
not panning out =/= not having potential
oden got drafted by the frailblazers, a death sentence for bones
bradley/darko were white, and racist nba only allows one good whitey at a time
kwame had to play with kobr
>tfw bought a pound of ground meat to make burgers but my microwave is broken
Guess I'm making a taco bell run at halftime
You think sometimes the sisters switch for redick?
I really am in awe of Harbaugh. Michigan was supposed to be irrelevant this year but minus the choke to Mich St., they probably are title contenders. He probably is an ass, but a damn fine coach. I hope they do a 30 for 30 of him in the future of how he acted and what made him tick.
>Oh so I guess Greg Oden, Shawn Bradley, Kwame Brown, and Darko Milic had potential right?
They did though
My point is that "potential" doesn't mean shit. You had the POTENTIAL to be white, but you're still a nigger.
Everyone in this thread has the potential to be president...doesn't mean any of you faggots will ever do anything meaningful with your life. Do you believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny too, you fucking tard?
>implying the Raptors can beat any team that Paul Pierce is on
I see you're going for the 3-peat PP keking, huh?
rub your hands together vigorously, and then use that heat to cook the burgers
Plus, when it's done cooking, is already in your hand
>mfw Clips vs. Raptors finals
>Pierce bootyblasts the Raptors yet again and retires while angering Canada and The Lakers.
I disagree, I have come to terms with how stupid I am. I get paid extremely well because of tenacity and not having an ego. It got me through school and into a career but I will never split and atom or discover something new. People do have limits.
that's exactly what i was thinking the other day

You just know...
Van Gundy said during warm ups that a player said he might not be back until then
I wouldn't be surprised if he comes earlier but I think the all star break thing is like a precaution worst case scenario sort of thing
actually he's not real at all he's a figment of our imagination now cliff paul is the real dude saving niggas bucks on and off the court
