Thursday 10-14-10 Clippers 95 Vs. Nuggets 100 (Preseason)

Watching the game right now, thought I should add in some live notes.

First Half Notes

  • Blake Griffin continue to impress during first quarter, made all his free throws and being a ridiculous hustler.
  • Carmelo Anthony is a great player, but I’m still unsure on how I feel on him in the Clippers.
  • It feels great listening to Ralph and Mike again (Milph as they are called in clipsnation)
  • Eric Bledsoe enters at 7 minute mark in second quarter for the first time.
  • Aminu leaves around the same time, was not that productive during his short minutes on the court.
  • George Karl looks tired.
  • Kaman has 12 points at 6 minute mark of 2nd quarter.
  • Great assist by Bledsoe to Eric Gordon.
  • 3 by Gordon!
  • Followed by airball by Blake.
  • Bledsoe is a turnover machine, he needs to learn how to control the ball.  I wonder if Derrick Rose or Russel Westbrook had this problem their rookie year.
  • Loving Kaman’s hunter’s beard, he rocks it very well.
  • Very exciting first half, Clippers down 55-57.  Kaman leading game with 19 points.

3rd Quarter

  • Took a longer halftime break than I thought, (In N Out run) Came back at 6:12 mark of 3rd quarter, Clippers down 61-70
  • Blake Griffin is 7-7 from free throw line
  • Eric Gordon missed an explosive highlight reel dunk, that would’ve been a sick play.
  • Kaman is stuck on 20 points, I don’t see him passing the elusive 30 point mark any time soon.
  • Blake Griffin pretty cold right now.  Clippers only made 6 points all quarter.
  • Clippers are 2/14 on field goals this quarter.
  • Shots are finally going in!  Griffin giving the Clippers life.
  • Brian Cook just sucked the life that just came up.
  • Nuggets last 12 points were from free throw lines, wow
  • I love Ralph Lawler’s stories.  He just told one about Charles Smith and the 3 point line rule
  • 3rd quarter ends Clippers down 73-84

4th Quarter

  • Clippers opening up this quarter with a zone.  It doesn’t look that effective right now with 2 fouls committed already by Butler and Cook.
  • 3rd foul in less than 2 minutes of the quarter, this time by the Nuggets.
  • Melvin Ely fouled out, 1 point in 17 minutes.
  • Highlight alley oop dunk by Blake Griffin from Baron Davis!
  • Griffin takes a charge, got hit hard.  Ruthless.
  • Lead got cut down to single digits.  Blake Griffin performing the resurrection dance for the Clippers right now.
  • Another dunk by Griffin, assist by Baron Davis!
  • Sick block by Baron Davis!  So much for being out of shaped, he just showed some hops there.
  • Eric Gordon lead a fastbreak but JR Smith fouled him hard on the way to the rim.
  • The lead is cut down to 5.
  • Loving the intensity right now, might start hyperventilating at how great this comeback is.
  • Looseball fouls being called everywhere.  This is where international game is different, players actually get to play.
  • Clippers are on a 11-2 run since the quarter started.
  • 22-5 run by Clippers, game tied at 86.
  • Big block by Baron Davis on Ty Lawson!
  • Melo getting booed huge.  I wonder what the average Clippers fan thinks of him.
  • Bad call by the refs here.  Melo back to the line.
  • Monster dunk by Griffin again!
  • Loving Baron Davis’s intensity.  Looks ready to eat Melo up.
  • MVP chants for Blake, loving it right now.
  • Clippers need to grab some boards.  Kaman got a steal though, Baron with a nice fast break dunk.  Foul on Affalo and he makes 2.
  • 98-95 Clippers down, Clippers possession, 11 seconds left.  This is a clutch moment here.
  • Gordon wasn’t clutch, exciting 4th quarter though.
