Hope Rudy isn’t hurt too bad
Posted by NesbyBingo1999 on Apr 15, 2017 | 7:46 PM

Oh this is terrible
Posted by NesbyBingo1999 on Apr 15, 2017 | 7:47 PM

Oh man
This sucks! I hope he is ok

Posted by lukeiscrafty on Apr 15, 2017 | 7:49 PM

how can our starting 5 look so pathetic offensively
With no gobert too

Posted by Bears_Beets_BlakeGriffin on Apr 15, 2017 | 7:58 PM

Ingles is taking Redicks lunch money rn
Posted by take_a_blake on Apr 15, 2017 | 7:58 PM

Wow…Golbert is down..
Hoping not serious…Now Favor has 3 fouls….are we finally getting the breaks?

Clippers are nervous
Posted by Ainnem Agon on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:08 PM

It definitely shouldn’t be this close
Got to shake off the jitters

Posted by Jonee on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:17 PM

Well there is a lot of time left but if we can’t pull away with no gobert
That is not a good sign for us going forward.

Posted by take_a_blake on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:18 PM

Must win game 1?
Cant lose home court and this team is a front runner who get angry with each other when things go wrong.

Posted by ClipperChuck on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:19 PM

Blake looks super nervous
Posted by Guitarzan on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:22 PM

I actually thought we would be up by 10 since Goburt is out.
Posted by Mortythegreatt on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:25 PM

They seem so nervous hopefully they can shake this off
Posted by griffinmccarthy7 on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:33 PM

Did they game plan totally for Gobert and now don’t know what to do?
Maybe Utah just punked them

Posted by Jonee on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:33 PM

Did we do any game prep before this series?
Seriously, Utah is breathing down the necks of our guards like they know (and probably do) every facet of our predictable vanilla playbook.
And on the other end it’s refreshing to see Utah run complicated offensive sets leading to uncontested looks. And that’s without their best screen-setter, rim-runner

Posted by Bears_Beets_BlakeGriffin on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:34 PM

So much this. Most of the time it looks like we are running nothing
Posted by Guitarzan on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:35 PM

Because we aren’t
Posted by take_a_blake on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:39 PM

What in the hell are they doing?
This is beyond pathetic.

Posted by SamuraiFoochs on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:38 PM


Doc being outcoached again… Sigh!
Posted by wwshep on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:38 PM

Per usual
Posted by Cliprgirl on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:39 PM

LET ME SAY THIS FOR THE 89th TIME…
DOC is the worst coach in sports.

Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:42 PM

I hate Chris Paul sometimes
3 shots so far and we wonder why our offense has problems sometimes. Atleast Griffin is having spurts of solid play offensively.

Posted by take_a_blake on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:43 PM

Hill is playing pretty good defense on him
Posted by Cliprgirl on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:44 PM

He’s George freaking Hill against a 1st ballot hall of famer
Come on now.

Posted by take_a_blake on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:48 PM

Well we’ve seen better halves. Glad we tied it up at least. Utah is definitely playing their hearts out. I got nothing but respect for how they’re playing.
1. We gotta guard Joe Johnson. He’s a playoff veteran.
2. Keep it up on Hayward.
3. Blake has to try to get 40+ or CP has to take (and make) more shots. Still, love the fire Blake is playing with.
4. Be less sloppy with the ball—getting picked by Jingles twice, Blake double dribble, Jamal/Redick travels? Just have fun, guys! It’s the playoffs! What you’ve been waiting all season for.

Posted by CP3Clutch on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:58 PM

Clips are a much better team. But…
Doc is terrible at game planning/adjusting, so the other team will ALWAYS have an advantage against them.

Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 8:59 PM


I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW IT CAN BE CLOSE WHEN THEY LOST GOBERT
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:14 PM

MY FAVORITE PART OF CLIPPERS BASKETBALL IS THE PART WHERE I HATE MYSELF
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:15 PM

Thet’re getting out competed at home and it’s the PLAYOFFS.
Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:20 PM

I think this team just has too many mental scars…
the demons of past playoff collapses haunting them… plus a shitty coach.

Posted by wwshep on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:21 PM

They can’t figure out this Blake on Joe Johnson thing.
He’s not freaking Draymond….Ugh.

Posted by Guitarzan on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:20 PM

A SHORT POEM
ROSES ARE RED
VIOLETS ARE BLUE
FUCK YOU DOC RIVERS
FUCK YOU SO MUCH

Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:21 PM

Folks, let’s not forget, Gobert is not playing!
Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:26 PM

SERIOUS QUESTION: ARE WE PLAYING DOWN TO THE GOBERT-LESS JAZZ OR ARE WE THAT TERRIBLE
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:30 PM

I’m sad
only clippers cannot show up after best player on team gets hurt…

Posted by Lawler’s Law on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:35 PM

This game is making me really sad. Gotta hand it to the Jazz. They’re playing composed, within themselves, not forcing anything. Top notch coaching after a top 3 defensive player in the league goes down.
Posted by CP3Clutch on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:40 PM


Don’t get mad at me, but I have to say it again…
This is happening because Doc is one of the worst coaches in sports. I’m a Celtic fan, I can tell you a list of all-time crazy coaching moves he has done when he was there.

Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:41 PM

We know
Posted by KillaClip on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:42 PM

Sorry.
Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:43 PM

I MEAN AT THIS POINT YOU MIGHT AS WELL GIVE UP AND SAVE ENERGY FOR NEXT SEASON
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:42 PM

SHIT I’D RATHER GO BACK TO BEING A TERRIBLE TEAM WITH PROMISING YOUNG TALENT THAN THIS SHIT
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:43 PM

JJ crushed by Ingles. The whole league has the blueprint on stopping us.
Posted by Guitarzan on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:45 PM

DOC RIVERS IS TO COACHING WHAT SANDPAPER IS TO MASTURBATION
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:46 PM

I wish we had a Joe Johnson.
Posted by CP3Clutch on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:53 PM

I wish we had a Melo.
Posted by Mortythegreatt on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:54 PM


DEANDRE GETTING CLOWNED BY FAVORS
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:55 PM

LOL THIS TEAM SUCKS
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:57 PM

We literally lost to Joe Johnson
Posted by Cliprgirl on Apr 15, 2017 | 9:58 PM

FAKE GRIFFIN: LITERALLY THE MOST UNCLUTCH STAR IN THE NBA
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:02 PM

I can’t believe this is happening without Gobert & with Favors limping on one leg.
BLOW IT UP!

Posted by CBBC on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:05 PM

IN 2017, A GOBERT-LESS UTAH JAZZ LED BY JOE JOHNSON BEAT THE LOS ANGELES BASKETBALL CLIPPERS ON THE CLIPPERS HOME COURT.
Posted by Bui Himself on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:09 PM

joe Johnson
fucking Joe Johnson

Posted by Lawler’s Law on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:10 PM

fucking Joe Johnson
Posted by Lawler’s Law on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:10 PM

Clippers deserved to lose this game, they didn’t take the Jazz
seriously at all.

Posted by TheLob TheJam on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:10 PM

fucking Joe Johnson
Posted by Lawler’s Law on Apr 15, 2017 | 10:10 PM

Blow. It. Up.

    All these people calling for a Melo… All they did was to trigger the Melo’s People of Utah spirit!

      You’re alive!!!! Are you done with school?

        Wow, I’m impressed by your memory. :) PhD was finished last week actually! However I have made my Brexit and started a new job in Italy for a while now. This means that the West coast games shifted from 3:30 am to 4:30 am, which for this team in the playoffs means watchable! :D

        • April 17, 2017 4:59 pm

          Congrats!!! Glad you’re alive and well and hope this means you’ll be back Jazz fan’ing :)

          Thanks! I will always be Jazz fan’ing! It’s just that now, more than ever, I rely on you and fellow best fans for good opinion on them! :)

    “ingles, Ingles, Ingles.” “I mean . . . Joe Ingles.”

    Or, “Johnson, Johnson, Johnson.” I mean . . . Joe Johnson.”

    funny
    plus I love this
    “this team is a front runner who get angry with each other when things go wrong.”
    we haven’t made this happen, but we will
