I usually don't attach negative emotions too much to basketball games but this game today made me

WTF is wrong with this team. Why don't they continue with successful actions throughout a game? Makes no sense at all. It's not like the Timberwolves all of a sudden figured out how to defend him.

It's why I'm so pissed. They keep giving games away. The last 5-7 games or so it's like they don't even care. In all of the games they have control early and let teams back into it. They pushed the lead to 10 or 11 like 3 times. No excuse to not only give that up and lose... but to lose by 12 or 14. Downright sad. Wolves punched the Clippers in the balls and laughed at them and the Clippers took it like little bit*hes.

Well, Dorko did shut down Blake in the first meeting and was put on him in the 4th tonight. I'm not saying because Dorko is the worst player in the NBA, but im just saying...

It's why the Clippers point differential is mediocre despite the good record. They stop sticking with successful actions. Other teams get back into the games way too soon and a lot of victories end up being just squeezed out in the 4th quarter. Completely unnecessary. And, as homerish as this sounds, A LOT of times this involves acting like Blake is invisible for prolonged stretches.

Darko has always been a good defender. People rip him because of his weak offense and expectations being the 2nd pick but if it's one thing he does well it's play D. He blocks shots and he plays physical, in your face D. He's also very long so of course he bothers Griffin's shots.

If Clips wanted a coach with no/little experience, should've given Sam I Am a chance.

Fans loved him and he seemed to enjoy being a Clipper.

What should also be noted is how bad Clippers bench D is. It's like the worst lineup possible on D. Nobody can defend worth a sh** off the bench besides K Mart.

Great question. If somebody told you.... CP3 and Griffin were going to dominate... Rubio and Love would be shutdown..you'd assume Clippers won big. Till you learn that prime Pippen and Jordan suited up against us tonight (Beasley/Williams).

Wolves had like 73 bench points which is INSANE.

Vinny Del Negro isnt that good of a coach. At Least when he was in Chicago.

Experts thought he did a great job coaching that that Boston series but reality is that Del Harris was one of the assistant coaches.

He's still young though.

Clippersfan, I thought Vinny was a lock for COTY and a very solid/underrated coach, who's twice as good as Brooks

I said that before the season started. I didn't realize just how bad the guy was. Last year I blamed the players... but now I see his huge errors I admitted I was wrong about this very early in the season. You should never feel like you're winning in SPITE of your coach... which is how I feel.

Yeah I've never been a fan of the guy. The Bulls saw a huge turnaround when he was replaced with Thibs.

When I watch the Bulls.. my first thought is EXCELLENT execution. When you look at great teams like the Mavs, Spurs, Lakers (Phil Jackson), Celtics (couple years ago) in recent times... you see the impact a good coach has. It's no coincidence that these teams are always in the right spots.. and are consistent on both ends of the floor. That comes from having elite coaches and a great game plan.

It's also no coincidence that the Clippers allow a bench player to have a career high against them seemingly every game. That's a result of bad game planning and not preparing for all possible circumstances.

Even as recent as this offseason I thought coaching was overrated. Now I'm seeing how wrong I was. Obviously you can skate by and win without a good coach... but you WILL NOT get close to winning a title without a solid-good coach. Vinny's errors like his rotations have cost us at least 3-4 W's and I'm positive of that.
