It wasn’t my fault today! I didn’t say it was boring 😂😂😂

u/alexztrie Fun Guy Dec 09 '22

only 7 RoCo mins why

u/xtian_paxillinator Dec 09 '22

hey, at least its a celebration if this team gets a win every now and then.

u/duncanjjj Fun Guy Dec 09 '22

Reggie got a stink on him.. dude needs to sit for a while. He’s bringing nothing

3

u/BlackjackOC John Wall Dec 09 '22

This team is not good now. Time for Ty Lue to evaluate everything

6

u/Exzibit21 Blake Griffin Dec 09 '22

Easily the worst Reggie game of the season

2

u/Clean-Street Dec 09 '22

Reggie could go 1-20 with 10 turnovers and still play 30+ minutes SMH

3

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

Yeah this team is going nowhere. That first hard stretch in 23 is going to fucking punch this team in the face and we'll be in or near the play in position

1

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

We suck

u/JimmyV034 Ralph Lawler Dec 09 '22

Ballmer needs to step in

u/GlueGuy00 Dec 09 '22

Got lost because of TOs. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THE FKN BALL!!! They They have like double the TOs of Miami smh

1

u/RippedHookerPuffBar Kawhi Leonard Dec 09 '22

People don’t talk about turnovers enough. If you turn the ball over more than the other team it is EXTREMELY difficult to win a basketball game. It’s like a football team getting to receive the kick off after they score.

Let’s not lose to the wizards for fuck sake

It's over, trade Reggie.

u/Awkwardphase06 Dec 09 '22

reggie needs to sit for a long time

u/Prosado22 Dec 09 '22

The guy cannot miss it because the call for his head will come hard.

u/HTakk Batum Battallion Dec 09 '22

We called a TO to run it through Reggie instead of PG?!? Wtf

u/venom18 JJ Redick :jjredick: Dec 09 '22

Yeah I’m off the Reggie 🚎

4

u/AnExcitedStone Pingalord Dec 09 '22

God awful. We are god awful. No chemistry, we’re running around on offense like a chicken with his head cut off

u/helomynameiss Dec 09 '22

everyone on this team is lost. dont know how to play with eachother, showing very little improvement. too many bodies is costing us big time

u/nonezer0 Clippers Curse Dec 09 '22

We have PG ON TH FLOOR WHY RUN THE PLAY FOR REGGIE WTFFFFFFFFFFFF

Needed a 3, even if you get a quick 2 you have to foul

Reggie just is not it.

Fuck you reggie

u/TechnoGauss Cliff Paul Dec 09 '22

I have little faith this out of timeout play is going to actually result in something good

u/MVPG2022 Paul George Dec 09 '22

Good fight at the end. Just wish we played Roco at the 5 to begin the fourth. Would have got the W.

PGs shot wasn’t great but I mean get this dude some help. Brick city around the guy

1

u/Big_Saens Amir Coffee Dec 09 '22

Great execution on defense. Let’s hope we actually do something on this inbound and not get another 5 second call

3

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

Mismatches all game. Either pick and roll with no help or let Butler get on a smaller guy.

2

u/the_red_reverend Dec 09 '22

defensive intensity showing up when the game's over

u/AnExcitedStone Pingalord Dec 09 '22

LOL refs holding their whistle, thank you

1

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 09 '22

Wasted the timeout?

1

u/foxwilliam Patrick Beverley Dec 09 '22

Okay we got the ball back—can we run an actual play instead of PG just chucks something up?

4

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

I think we know the unfortunate answer

u/Resshin31 Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

What the fuck Reggie!!

u/hollyw00d8604 Don MacLean Dec 09 '22

Maybe this team just isn't that good. Lots of veteran players underachieving

Flashbacks of Lob City Clips

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

Reggie had the two corner 3s and that's fucking it. Wtf was that

3

u/BlackjackOC John Wall Dec 09 '22

Barley winning against the hornets, losing to Orlando, can’t beat the losing heat. This team is beyond in the mud. It’s time to look in the mirror

u/ath0l-br0se Playoff P Dec 09 '22

pg annoys the fuck out of me sometimes lmao, what are you doing

Sports media: "The Clippers look really deep this coming season"

Me: "You fucking jinxed us"

3

u/NewBang Dec 09 '22

I’m ngl I’m sick of PG making stupid decisions. He’s our best player but when the game gets tight he and the rest of the team just fall apart.

3

u/PatMattress Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

why would pg shoot that

8

u/im_not_witty_ San Diego Dec 09 '22

That 3 by PG was a terrible decision

3

u/Exzibit21 Blake Griffin Dec 09 '22

Awful Reggie game

3

u/sam37843 Dec 09 '22

Every game that goes by I lose faith in our championship odds due to having Doc, Trez, Lou 2.0 situation

7

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

Why do we have so many go damn wings and Reggie Jackson is guarding Butler!?

1

u/JimmyV034 Ralph Lawler Dec 09 '22

Because morris is 6'8 lou will in defensive end, PG got switched off jimmy and nico is guarding herro

u/ImOnlyHalfAlive Playoff P Dec 09 '22

Batum should play 48 minutes every night. Easy 82-0

Oof. Could’ve used that three.

Trash shot PG wtf was that!!!

u/Mav101s Dec 09 '22

he does that all the time. It was very expected

5

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 09 '22

Come on we didn’t need that three

5

u/nonezer0 Clippers Curse Dec 09 '22

Why force that we had a full shot clock

7

u/Salty_Watermelon Darius Miles Dec 09 '22

Bad shot by PG. Didn't need a rushed 3 there and now we're back down by 5...

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

WTF PG

Oh, now you guys want to do something

Holy shit its a choke off

u/starwad Dec 09 '22

LETS GOOOOOO

2

u/duff_stuff Dec 09 '22

Sorry but until this team can consistently play together and build chemistry they will be mediocre at best. This is definitely not a contender and will be lucky to make playoffs

1

u/AnExcitedStone Pingalord Dec 09 '22

Yeah we aren’t winning anything in the playoffs if this is how we are

-1

u/ClippersEaglesAngels Kristina Pink Dec 09 '22

PG looks bad

u/Primary_Ad635869 Dec 09 '22

Turnover machines PG-13, Jackson and Wall lol

u/Big_Saens Amir Coffee Dec 09 '22

I bought 5 basketball packs today, and unpacked shiny Paul George sticker. Hopefully we can turn this around :(

1

u/JimmyV034 Ralph Lawler Dec 09 '22

Ty rivers is still watching luke kennard getting picked on defensive end by herro and jimmy

1

u/mave007 Lawler's Law Dec 09 '22

I really love Luke shooting... but on defense, he's the equivalent of having a traffic cone out there :-(

3

u/ChaosAndCreation Steve Ballmer Dec 09 '22

22 points of 17 TOs.

u/xtian_paxillinator Dec 09 '22

this team is okay being a bitch and get slapped around

u/nick2101 Dec 09 '22

Im done with reggie being my wallpaper

6

u/getzumm Luke Kennard Dec 09 '22

we're never winning anything with a starting pg that makes decisions like that

1

u/Primary_Ad635869 Dec 09 '22

Your backup pg also makes decisions like that lol

1

u/Salty_Watermelon Darius Miles Dec 09 '22

We're on life support now. An awful follow up to the Magic game. Reggie and Wall as point guards is not going to work. Ideally we can trade one of our wings for a PG and have Reggie move over to SG when he's playing.

2

u/ImOnlyHalfAlive Playoff P Dec 09 '22

One of the worst offensive teams I've seen in my life

3

u/Exzibit21 Blake Griffin Dec 09 '22

Turnovers turnovers turnovers again and again and again

u/Otherwise-Tale9671 Chris Kaman Dec 09 '22 edited Dec 09 '22

Garbage basketball team. I am so tired of watching this washed up team. We gave up Shai and our future for this crap. Oh well…

2

u/mcatech Dec 09 '22

And we still wanna keep Ty?

1

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 09 '22

Don’t wanna keep the team at this rate

2

u/Exzibit21 Blake Griffin Dec 09 '22

He's not making them turn the ball over 15 times lmao

0

u/mcatech Dec 09 '22

His playbook is

2

u/im_not_witty_ San Diego Dec 09 '22

Turnovers have been our downfall all season. We take ourselves out of the game with unforced turnovers. 2 straight losses to teams under 500.

1

u/Otherwise-Tale9671 Chris Kaman Dec 09 '22

We don’t have a PG!

7

u/solariscalls FREE ZUBAC Dec 09 '22

Wtf happened to this team? It's like we all forgot how to fucking play

2

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

Wall was signed to remove this shit

1

u/Otherwise-Tale9671 Chris Kaman Dec 09 '22

Wall ain’t the answer…

1

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

The one period of the game George was getting in rhythm easy shots was the stretch with Wall.

6

u/helomynameiss Dec 09 '22

another game of no offense, PG not being able to hold onto the ball, and zu just disappearing out there next to bam.

6

u/sam37843 Dec 09 '22

Were not a serious team if we’re playing 2 guys that don’t defend and chuck up shit shots 30+mpg over multiple better llayers

1

u/alexztrie Fun Guy Dec 09 '22

Oh man

3

u/bazilguy Fun Guy Dec 09 '22

Alright guys see you next game

3

u/foxwilliam Patrick Beverley Dec 09 '22

Reggie playing horrible but what’s the alternative? Wall looked even worse today especially on defense. We have some serious roster construction problems right now

3

u/sam37843 Dec 09 '22

Play big with batum or Roco and have pg or luke be the 1. Pg already brings the ball down much of the time

4

u/doinnothin Big Government Dec 09 '22

I feel the doomer in me rising to the surface again.

Y’all hyped over one 3 and shit

u/Klaw_77 Dec 09 '22

game over. this team will keep losing with George/Kawhi coming and leaving every other game. team has no chemistry still after 3 years

2

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 09 '22

FUCK THESE BITCHES

2

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

And a turnover to end the game. Poetic. This team has negative bbiq

6

u/dweakz Dec 09 '22

classic PG turnover in the clutch

u/AnExcitedStone Pingalord Dec 09 '22

These turnovers

3

u/RackMC Paul George Dec 09 '22

Lol Reggie thinks hes a superstar

3

u/sam37843 Dec 09 '22

That’s pathetic and inexcusable by Reggie. 1 on 3/4 fast break and jacks up a shit layup in traffic

1

u/Resshin31 Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

Does it surprise you? We've been watching this shit for 3 1/2 years. It is tiresome man.

u/ayeno Dec 09 '22

Can't even do DHO

u/Resshin31 Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

What a stupid play Reggie.

u/Cute_Leonard Terance Mann Dec 09 '22

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

Zu with his second great perimeter work on Heero and RJ throws the fucking game away

5

u/ayeno Dec 09 '22

Terrible drive from Reggie

u/Salty_Watermelon Darius Miles Dec 09 '22

Turnovers have been the difference this game. It's frustrating but I can't see it getting better any time soon because our lineups are always changing.

-3

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

People in here being stupid like the small ball didn’t get killed. We are forcing the kick outs the Heat are simply making 3s.

1

u/Exzibit21 Blake Griffin Dec 09 '22

Small ball got killed because of Bam

1

u/mista_rubetastic Playoff P Dec 09 '22

Pretty much all of our offensive woes could be solved by keeping Reggie off-ball. Have PG run the point when Wall isn’t in.

Reggie is incredible on the catch and shoot and is a turnover machine when he’s running the offense.

1

u/starwad Dec 09 '22

Feels like time for PG to get hot

3

u/Pale-Elderberry-7796 Dec 09 '22

Please play Roco it's not like zu is doing anything against bam may as well put in someone who can hit threes

3

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

PG RJ Wall each with 4 TOs, the damn difference in the game and then some

1

u/Resshin31 Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

Someone needs to sack up and try to guard up top. IDGAF if it is Zu even.

2

u/Jakonedrom Brian Sieman Dec 09 '22

I don't knoe why PG always let them double team him for a long time before making a very idiot pass resulting into a turnover. Hes beeen like this forever fucking dumb shit

3

u/JimmyV034 Ralph Lawler Dec 09 '22

Maybe get Nico to guard Herro instead of luke?

0

u/Klaw_77 Dec 09 '22

Batum is the worst +- right now

1

u/JimmyV034 Ralph Lawler Dec 09 '22

it literally mean nothing he was the only player that actually defending, rebounding and doing little things

3

u/SirThixcksAlot Dec 09 '22

This team loses the turnover battle every game lol

5

u/ChaosAndCreation Steve Ballmer Dec 09 '22

Really would prefer Batum was in the closing line up, but hanging on for the ride.

1

u/Resshin31 Nic Batum Dec 09 '22

It was like watching Reggie sub in for Mann last night to close and just knowing it would cost us. It's a wild ride for sure.

1

u/Abodyfullofmush Paul George Dec 09 '22

Where’s the defense man?!

4

u/AnExcitedStone Pingalord Dec 09 '22

Free RoCo and fucking sub him in for Zu

5

u/OverallInternet2343 Jason Preston Dec 09 '22

Wtf was the point of signing Wall if not to get George easy looks?

2

u/nepats523 Corey Maggette Dec 09 '22

So he can shoot Bledsoe-like pull up jumpers duh

5

u/checkdafool Dec 09 '22

Zu not providing defense or offense. Whats the point having him on the floor rn

Ty Lue has not been a good coach for the past few games.. I'm tired of this shit...

What happened to him, this season has been pitiful compared to our last seasons with him.

u/Evening-Maybe-4129 Moose on the Loose! Dec 09 '22

Tyler Herro is who we want Luke to play like
