    @Mike: Considering you are now discredited, Bill is wrong, and Eric isn't signed in yet --- by default, my opinion is the only one that counts.
  • 5/16/2014 2:45:49 AM Mike.James
    The Clippers' multi-pronged mission in Game 6: Try to contain Westbrook just a bit. If he gets 38, well, they're in trouble. And DeAndre Jordan needs to actually  be a factor and play more than 19 fruitless minutes: zero points and four rebounds while fouling out as he did in Game 5 would be disastrous for the Clippers.

    @Mike: Very true. Also, Kevin Durant is due to go off. The Clippers need to make sure that doesn't happen.
  • 5/16/2014 2:48:18 AM Mike.James
    Going to be very interesting to see how Chris Paul comes out once they tip off. You know the ending to Game 5 has not sit well with him.

    I see a comment from a Melissa Ruhlin. Are we related?
  • 5/16/2014 2:48:55 AM Eric Pincus
    That was quick - tech on Matt Barnes
  • 5/16/2014 2:49:40 AM Eric Pincus
    2-0 Clippers - just started - Redick on board first
  • 5/16/2014 2:50:16 AM melissa.rohlin
    Blake Griffin with a slam dunk to put the Clippers up 4-1 in the first minute.
  • 5/16/2014 2:50:38 AM Eric Pincus
    Good start for Clippers - 4-1
  • 5/16/2014 2:50:44 AM Mike.James
    Paul didn't waste any time finding Griffin down the lane for that dunk.
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:14 AM melissa.rohlin
    Before the game, Doc was asked if he said anything special to the players to motivate them. He said he didn't, adding that preparation is the only thing that matters right now.
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:22 AM Eric Pincus
    First on DeAndre Jordan - he had major foul trouble in Game 5
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:24 AM StefanIsNBA
    So I read that Durant also won scoring title?
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:25 AM StefanIsNBA
    Anyone thinks Ibaka has improved a lot? The guy can shoot 3's now
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:40 AM Eric Pincus
    Ibaka has significantly improved @StefanisNBA
  • 5/16/2014 2:51:42 AM Mike.James
    Jordan with a pointless foul. Just what he can't afford to do.
  • LINEUPS: LAC PG Paul, SG Redick, SF Barnes, PF Griffin, C Jordan | OKC PG Westbrook, SG Sefolosha, SF Durant, PF Ibaka, C Perkins #Game6
  • Blake, JJ and Matt all with baskets. LAC 7, OKC 6
  • 5/16/2014 2:52:52 AM melissa.rohlin
    Matt Barnes with a three-pointer. He was really clutch in Game 5. He can definitely make a difference if he's hot.
  • Blake, JJ and Matt all with baskets. LAC 7, OKC 5
  • 5/16/2014 2:53:06 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers' ball movement - 10-5 early
  • 5/16/2014 2:53:37 AM Mike.James
    The Clippers are moving the ball well, just as they did at the start of Game 5. Of course, we know how that ended up. Redick also getting out to a good start. 10-8 LAC
  • 5/16/2014 2:53:43 AM StefanIsNBA
    My opinion I thought that D.J Jordan was the winner of DYOP
  • 5/16/2014 2:53:56 AM StefanIsNBA
    Also I said if Redick is healthy for the Clippers, he is their X-Factor
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 5 of Thunder's first 8 points. 8:29 to go in Q1, Clippers lead by 3. Live stats at thunder.nba.com.
  • 5/16/2014 2:54:59 AM melissa.rohlin
    Blake Griffin hits another shot. He's two-for-three from the field so far.
  • 5/16/2014 2:55:34 AM Mike.James
    Hasn't been a lot in the game to get the Staples Crowd really going, but the Clippers are playing solid ball. And if Griffin can continue making shots from outside, his inside game gets that much more effective.
  • 5/16/2014 2:55:36 AM Eric Pincus
    Staples Center is very alive  - Clippers up 15-8 early
  • Blake with 5 straight points. LAC 15, OKC 8 (7:20)
  • 5/16/2014 2:56:02 AM melissa.rohlin
    Blake is playing very aggressively. Scores another basket. Timeout OKC. Clippers have a 7-point lead, 15-8 with 7:20 left in the first quarter.
  • 5/16/2014 2:56:48 AM Abramian_Stefan
    Blake Griffin has improved a lot I have to say @melissa
  • 5/16/2014 2:56:50 AM Mike.James
    Jordan did a good job inside to alter that shot without committing a foul, leading to the Griffin layup that pushes the lead to seven and forces an OKC timeout.

    This NBA off-season is sure going to be an interesting one wouldn't you guys say?
  • 5/16/2014 2:58:45 AM Eric Pincus
    NBA offseason is always interesting - I don't see a great FA crop of players - but trades, draft, FA plenty interesting
  • 5/16/2014 2:59:47 AM melissa.rohlin
    I agree, Stefan. The third-runner up for MVP this season sure wants to knock out the winner out of playoff contention right about now.
  • 5/16/2014 2:59:59 AM Abramian_Stefan
    Sterling is filing a lawsuit against the league, I kind of expected that
  • 5/16/2014 3:00:01 AM Eric Pincus
    2nd foul on Kendrick Perkins - Steven Adams in - about 7 min left in 1st
  • 5/16/2014 3:00:05 AM Mike.James
    An interesting off-season? That's the understatement of the year. Going to be very eventful. @abramian_stefan
  • 5/16/2014 3:00:17 AM Eric Pincus
    Foul count so far OKC 5 - LAC 1
  • 5/16/2014 3:00:43 AM Mike.James
    Steven Adams always makes things interesting when he gets on the floor.
  • 5/16/2014 3:00:50 AM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul puts the Clippers up by 10 with a three-point look
  • 5/16/2014 3:01:00 AM melissa.rohlin
    So the key to this game could be to have a bad first quarter. I mean, look at games 4 and 5. According to that theory, the Clippers are messing up right about now (they're up, 18-8).
  • 5/16/2014 3:02:11 AM Abramian_Stefan
    @mike.james I always loved Adams, heard he might go and play Rugby
  • 5/16/2014 3:02:42 AM melissa.rohlin
    Chris Paul looks as though he's trying to force things a bit.
  • 5/16/2014 3:04:10 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers fighting tonight - very determined.  We'll see if they can keep that up.  Second foul on Westbrook
