    Ross is playing just 27 minutes per game since the All Star break. Over that same stretch, he's shooting 51% from the field and 48% from 3.

    How is this minute distribution acceptable? There's only 1 game during that stretch where fouls were a problem.

    It's even worse when you consider how badly Salmons is struggling lately. Why does he continue to play extended minutes in the 4th? Let John rest up for the playoffs and let the youngest, best athlete on the team play 30+ minutes per game. I have no doubt he could handle it.

    Casey values experience far too much, it was an issue for him last year as well. Ditto "spacing", which is why Novak seems to be chewing into Tyler's minutes, even when the match up doesn't make sense.
    Couldn't agree more. His love for third stringer vets just because they're vets will be the death of him. It's one thing if we have vets like Paul Pierce or something, but when you're playing Alan Anderson's and John Salmons over Ross then there's a problem.

    Tucker is already known as a dirty player, he got suspended for elbowing Blake Griffin in the head
    It's no coincidence that Blake Griffin is ALWAYS the one involved in NBA "fights" (i.e. mean mugging and maybe a little scuffle). Griffin is ALWAYS the instigator.

    The Clippers are almost always on TV, so I watched the above incident: Griffin pulled Tucker to the ground violently and Tucker proceeded to sock Griffin in the face. This was justified, IMO. Obviously it's not a good look for Tucker with the punch and subsequent suspension, but he's not the player known for being dirty, nor does he have a history of instigating NBA "fights".

    And as always, Griffin walks away from the incident playing the victim, shaking his head at the opponent.

    I tend to side with Hornacek's recount of the what took place:

    Missed the game, but it looks like we got completely outplayed in ever-way possible according to the box scores.

    Knee to the head of Lowry...ouch, he okay? No injuries or anything from that?

    DD needs to pick up the slack, he's starting to just fill up the box-score without actually doing anything "good", from what I'm reading.

    Anyways, it's a "good" loss IMO, will make the guys realize that they're not as good as they think potentially, and get them back into grinding and winning games.
