When will J.A. Adande write one of his doom and gloom articles about the Clippers? This is why while I get disappointed, I don't fret too much over November basketball because its, you know, November. I fully expect everyone in the media to gloss over this because for all their "objectivity" there still is one expectation for the Lakers and another expectation for damn near everyone else.

It's the Clippers, nobody is surprised that they lose.

Exactly my point. Last week they were the bestest, deepest, most teamworkingest team in the history of basketball. Now what? Since they make up stories rather than chasing them, what's the narrative here?

Well, I think they will still be regarded as a powerful team, however, I don't think they will be seen as possibly the best team in the NBA anymore.

Clippers are the Knicks of the Western conference, they will finish pretty high (4-5 seed) but they will get spanked in the playoffs by a superior team.

Peaking at the start of the season is kinda easy, it's hard to maintain a high level going into the PO, I don't care how well you start out, I want to see a team make a huge progress instead of being on a decent level consistently and then burning out.

Yeah, I was surprised myself given the storyline about them.

They got worked by Atlanta. Final score didn't show the beating they took.

Phil wouldn't want to ruin his legacy by coaching that garbage bin of a franchise.

After they were crowned in the second week of the season, it's always fun seeing that JV team lose... even more so when it's in a streak...

Clippers lost again.

Blake Griffin went 1-9 ...(on my fantasy team, thanks a lot you bum).

Got schooled by Jason Smith when he was in the game. +17 for Smith.

I saw that game and was very unimpressed.
Blake was the only guy who cared. He made a helluva 1st half, rebounding, dishing out and scoring (a couple of amazing Js).

DeAndre Jordan seems happy to dunk a couple and then rest for the night.

Paul is the most disappointing. Slowing ad bogging down the offense, with boring everlasting dribbling, and then shooting forced jumpers. Only in the last few minutes we saw a quick step to the hoop.

Bledsoe, despite clumsy, was the only guy in the second half to really put an effort. JamaC hit 4 or 5 in row late in the fourth, but after clanging a few, and way too late.

I would say CP3 is trying to get rid of Vinny..

4 points?!? that's gotta be easily his worst game as a pro.

Didn't get his first basket until the 3rd on a lob from Green. He also fouled out. Ouch!
