They're the last team I want to face if I'm the Heat. Just a poor matchup, especially if Spo insists on playing Battier big minutes guarding Z-Bo, who will average 70 rebounds per game in a series against Battier

Maybe the only thing i'd agree with cf86 at this point. I dont want to see chris paul again in the playoffs. His p&r with blake playing center gave nightmares to marc gasol

Yes. The teams that consistently give the Clippers problems are the extremely disciplined and well coached teams. Lakers experience as a unit and basketball IQ as a roster seems to give us issues and the Spurs execution and coaching murders us normally. Doesn't mean Clippers can't beat them any given night just means I'd give those teams the matchup edge in a 7 game series.

Thunder are a team the Clippers have beaten the last 3 years, even before CP3. Harden, Westbrook and Durant have all been held well below their averages in that span (Durant played much much better last year vs Clips but Westbrook and Harden still got locked up).

Thunder's lack of ball movement the last few years and propensity to turn the ball over is bad to do against the Clippers because they can't capitalize on the Clippers biggest weakness which is 3 point defense. If you're not passing much or swinging the ball, you're much easier to guard. Clippers are one of maybe 3 teams who have the size, speed and athleticism to match up with OKC.

almost the exact thing i expected you to come in here and say. Please dont act like the clippers swept the grizz. Series could have gone either way and if not for one of the greatest come backs in nba history, you wouldnt have the series win to use as your crowning achievement when fluffing your team.

But yes, yall won the series and yes yall won a close season opener. But i would much rather play the clipps in the playoffs and get revenge as opposed to trying to avoid them

I think the Grizzlies match up quite well with the Lakers as well.

They are legit. Had Miami matched the Grizzlies energy and motivation, it wouldn't of been so bad.

You've also lost 6 of 7 to the Clippers in the regular season. I didn't say the games wouldn't be competitive or a series wouldn't be, calm down. I want the Grizzlies again too but only because I like the matchup and our chances to win the series, especially if healthier than last year.

Still would have lost, Grizzlies are a horrible matchup for the Heat, same thing happened last year.

If you type in "Clippers" on youtube the first two suggestions are "Clippers comeback" and "clippers comeback vs. grizzlies"

Impossible to say

Both miami losses were down to amazing 3 point shooting and lack of effort.

. Watch this too....

Clippers drop 4 threes in 90 seconds vs OKC. Now replace Mo will the much more explosive scorer Crawford.
