So you claim the regular season doesn't matter, yet you brag about the Clippers beating the Lakers in the meaningless regular season...???🤔...so when the Clippers lose a regular season game allegedly it doesn't matter, right ? ...but when the Clippers win then all of a sudden its "look how good they are" ? ...ITS CALLED "CONVENIENT HYPOCRISY"🤔

Boston can win a game against most any team, but not a series.

It's not how you run the race, its how you finish the race. The 2nd half hasn't started yet. It's too early to diagnose the Clippers. On the other hand, it doesn't matter if they finish 2nd in the West to the Lakers, because there is no homecourt advantage at Staples Center, because the Clippers and the Lakers share the same homecourt.

Paul George can have 2 broken legs in casts strung up in a hospital bed and have Max say he is highly concerned and SAS will say he's not concerned about Paul George.

Honestly I’m just happy both Gilgeous and Gallinari got respect on their name from Max. Both of these guys are essentially in route to one day run their own team.

Clippers won't win anything....Their two Superstars are both fragile, and one of them, the most fragile, they sold the farm for.....That big goofy Billionaire of theirs won't be gyrating and giggling on the sidelines for long when he finally comes to grips w/this….they're not going anywhere....mark my words:)

Yawn. Changing the topic of those boring injury nail Clippers, The Lakers are still first in the Western Conference and Max is crying a river. If the Nail Clippers keep losing they might not be on the playoffs Lol....

Once again, we have one standard for Lebron and the Lakers and another for the Clippers. If the Lakers were doing what the Clippers were doing the media would be going wild, and not making excuses for why they are preparing for the season. Honestly, the way they are playing and taking things for granted like they already have this. They may not make it out of the first round.

All these sports commentators are so annoying. Soon as you start losing oh we are so concerned. Soon as you start winning you the best team in the NBA, lmao. You win some, you lose some. That is how the game works.
robert henderson
Steven A. Hit it nail on the Head, the Clippers go ALL OUT when they play against the Lakers but dont bring that same energy against other teams and that may cost them down the line. Not too mention that DESPITE Doc load managing his guys they're still getting injured... But people wanna say the Lakers are Injury Prone lol. The narrative in the media these days is to Boost up the Clippers, make excuses for them when they come up short while Critic the Lakers whether they win or not lol. Its comedy...

It’s hilarious that the Clippers traded Gallinari and Gilgeous Alexander to OKC for PG and now PG is injured all the time, meanwhile Gallinari and Gilgeous Alexander are ballin out in OKC

Can y’all give my Celtics credit? We were missing arguably our 3rd player and at the least our 3rd best and we still dropped 141 on the Clippers

No more analysis of any sort. The Clips LOST, PERIEOOD! And they're not winning any championship this season. The Bucks will win it all!

Funny, everybody mentions that the clippers were playing without Paul George, but nobody once mentions that the Celtics were playing without Jaylen Brown. At least Paul George played HALF the game for the Clippers. The Celtics were without Brown for the whole game and have had barely any games this year in which they have had an entire healthy starting five.
