Better respect the Clippers there really good even without Kawhi

this is going to be interesting. Good teams don’t adjust to you they make you adjust your them.

cam Payne needs to play like Payne in the Lakers series and just attack that rim all day long.

I get some are worried about going into this without CP3 but I think we are fine. CP3 and Monty has taught this team a lot and they grown a lot. At the beginning of the season they realized how good they can be. With that they develop bad habits of playing to a bad teams level or letting teams back in when they have a big lead but as the season went they grew. They had a banged up leader in the first round and got through that. They have learned how to close out games and series.

I honestly believe they are built for this and can handle it until CP3 is back. They have shown they can handle the bright lights and big stage. They have shown that they can control a game now. They can take a big lead and hold the gas pedal down instead of letting teams back. They have the experience of having games go down to the wire and closing it out from the regular season.

This team with CP3 will always be better but without him they are still a good team. In the Lakers series CP3 was pretty much there for them mentally. Now this is a test for them without him there physically and mentally. If they are built for it which I believe.. this will just strengthen their bond, help them grow more and just make them even better.

With my ranting done lets go out and get this win. We are hurt but we are still hungry. Smell blood in the water and go eat. Keep the gas pedal down and keep that foot on their throat. Oh and have a great father’s day to everyone. Going into the cave early today. Lets get it!

Looks like the cave in the Alien remake. Sorry for bringing that up.

Love a coach with a "is what it is" attitude... Keeping the guys in the moment, focusing on what they can control. That's a team I can be proud of regardless the outcome. That being said.....lets get some, fellas!
