81-79 turns to 99-80 Nice rotations
 
It's ridiculous everyone notices this, and he leaves the bench in too long. We have a young team, and he's trying to conserve every minute? A tiny little swing in momentum goes a long way.

Same issue against Denver, same issue against Utah.

Been the same issue on many nights.

The starters eventually come in, were down by 11-12, and it's chuck mode.

BigMan93 12-09-2012 05:57 PM

True. At least Ross got to get on the floor instead of sitting on it.

casey needed to be fired LONG time ago. now its too late for anything to happen this season. worst of all we dont even have our pick.

I've never disliked a coach more, I don't even consider him a coach, he looks like he's only pretending to be one.

18-1 Run lol

In a close you game he puts out Calderon/Ross/Amir/Ed/ and I can't remember the last person.

Ball Don't Lie 12-09-2012 06:04 PM

I agree he should have called a timeout and immediately brought back in our starters, but truthfully, our team sucks. It wouldnt have made a difference sadly.

TORaptor4Ever 12-09-2012 06:05 PM

We have ZERO depth at the guard spots.

If DD and Lowry don't combine for at least 40 pts we're in trouble because we're not getting much from anywhere else.

It's true. At best, it probably would have just slowed down some of the Clipps momentum and kept the game to a 10 point loss.

I'm at work and was wondering wtf happened. I seen the score was 47-44 at half,read posts on here about the Raps playing their best defense all season and even seen one poster write that the D was back.....came to follow up on the score an hour later and they're down 99-80 with under 2 mins left,smh.....

The starters were already starting to let this game slide. Let's not make out like there was just an issue with rotations. The starters did worse than just trading baskets. It was the same old story. The Clippers bench came in and played some defense that was missing on behalf of both teams at that point, and the game changed, as it will when one team defends and the other team can't, won't or both. If Casey is to blame for anything, it is not recognizing the slippage defensively early enough and doing something about it, but he really doesn't have great options.

I agree, but all I saw was Calderon come in, Offence becomes stagnant, he chucks up 3 straight bricks, a couple turnovers, and all hell breaks loose.

I do believe the lead was starting to slip, however the bench play just precipitated it.

Maybe with the starters in, we keep it a bit closer.

It was Demar.

Truth is, they just have way more talent. Way more. Their bench guys have been around the league a long time.

If 2 of DD/Bargs/Lowry don't put up a combined 45-50 we're going to lose BIG. That's about it.

Agreed.... which is why (as much as some may not like it) Lowry HAS to look for his offense more. 6 shots isn't enough for a guy with his talent.

More hero ball please! :cookie:

scarfox 12-09-2012 06:31 PM

Fire Colangelo and Casey. Hire Sloan Or Sam Mitchell, and I guess leave Stefanski up there.

KoolAid 12-09-2012 06:48 PM

People actually think Sloan would come here, lol.

raptor123 12-09-2012 06:53 PM

What can we get in a Lowry trade.....any other team as stupid as us to give us a 1st round for Lowry. 9 assists 5 t/o -13.......our fucking leader with the keys.......Casey go back and let Calderon get some burn we have not been the same team since Lowry when to the bench....Calderon playing 14-16 minutes is bull shit.....sad thing about it is fucking Calderon is taking it.......its like he already knows he leaving as in trade this year or by free agent.......time to fire BC.

The MVP of West Hollywood 12-09-2012 06:54 PM

The Clippers gave half a f*ck about this game until the 4th quarter and then just cruised to the victory. If they wanted to they could've Utah'd us
