Asked Thibs about calling timeout b4 Bulls last possession. He said he tried but didn't get it in. But he's fine w/ it bc Rose coverts 9/10
At the USC Alumni Awards dinner with my wife. I am nominated for nothing, but have a speech prepared, because you never know. AK
Awesome finish for Jared Dudley with the time out and picture perfect pass for the game winner.
Derrick Rose may not have had as good of a game as Game 3, but his last two minutes have been incredible
Austin. We're here. http://t.co/WlRdE3uihT
Jimmy Butler is on fi-yaaaah. Bulls fansin Milwaukee just went nuts after that 3 to tie the game at 50 at half. 14 of his 23 pts in 2nd qtr
On TV, this game in Milwaukee sounds like a Bulls home game.
Full disclosure: I'm also asking as someone who finds Hack-A-____ entertaining in a twisted way. But I'm still asking in earnest. AK
Then again, Shaq was getting hacked in the pre-social media age, which potentially cuts both ways in answering my question. AK
I ask because I genuinely don't remember this many people complaining that Hack-A-Shaq was so terrible for the game. AK
Serious question: Was Hack-a-__ always considered problematic, or is this a social media echo chamber-generated "issue?" AK
Doc said he expected a long series and one team had to be down 2-1 after three games. "It's now our turn to respond," he said.
Doc said the series "is tied 2-1. We're down because we lost a home game."
No practice for the Clippers today. They gathered together for film and meetings at the team hotel.
Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of officiating, it was announced today.
Clippers-Spurs Game 5 will be Tuesday at 7:30pm on TNT. If Golden State, Houston and Cleveland all complete sweeps it will move to 6:30pm.
Matt Barnes: "We missed a few shots early, a few calls didn’t go our way and I saw a collective head drop. We can’t have that."
Jimmy Goldstein is either asleep or reviewing the box score. Maybe both. http://t.co/GHXfu73pZf
Duncan, Ginobili, Parker combine for 12 points and the Clippers stll lose. Just saying...
Spurs beat Clippers, 100-73, handing Clippers a season low for points. Pop says something to Doc that makes him smile and pats him on rear.
FINAL: Spurs 100, Clippers 73. The Spurs take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is in San Antonio on Sunday.
Aron Baynes likes basketball again!!! AK
Who's the guy with the crown?
Clippers calling timeout now? Why? So Sam Cassell can enter the game?
Crawford and CP3 were a 4 for 18 combined. Thanks for coming
Doc should put in Jimmy Goldstein.
A loud "MVP!" chant for Kawhi Leonard. Why not? He's won almost everything else.
Lakers could have lost by this much...
To say this is garbage time would be putting it kindly. Spurs 85, Clippers 55 with 7:39 left.
All Clippers starters out now with 7:39 left when Glen Davis replaces J.J. Redick and Spurs ahead 84-55.
Spencer Hawes is in now. Towel officially thrown in.
Spencer Hawes is in the game. Good night now.
Spencer Hawes time.
Really 53 points?
Still think the Clippers probably lost this series by dropping Game 2. It was going to be tough to win any game here.
Spurs are up 27 now with 9:13 left and the biggest Fiesta party in San Antonio is breaking out at AT&T Center.
Danny Green corner three-pointer puts Spurs up 78-51 with 9:13 left. Time to pull starters?
Jamal Crawford floater puts Clippers over 50-point threshold.
The Spurs are up by 21 to start the 4th quarter. The Clippers have never led tonight.
Clippers scored 16 points in first quarter and 11 in the third. Formula for disaster.
Grantland's Zach Lowe had the line of the day about the Clippers having only six competent NBA players. Tonight it seems fewer than that.
Very surprised the Clippers aren't competitive in this game. Huge props to the Spurs. LAC are more athletic, higher seed. Doesn't matter.
Spurs 70, Clippers 49 entering the 4th quarter. Spoiler Alert: The Spurs are not the Pelicans.
Clippers are down, 70-49, going into fourth quarter. This will not end well for them.
Clippers have made 18 of 60 shots. That's 30%.
Fourth quarter will be one long party for Spurs.
The Clippers are down by 19 to the Spurs. Austin Rivers, Big Baby and Hedo Turkoglu are on the court for the Clippers.
Clippers look completely overmatched and not just their woeful bench.
The players in the 2011 NBA draft taken ahead of Klay (11th), Kawhi (15th), Jimmy Butler (30th), and Isaiah Thomas (60th) are staggering.
Blake Griffin's last shot gives the Clippers a player with double figures scoring, so there's that.
Blake Griffin is staying in the game.
Blake Griffin is laboring/limping as he walks towards the bench. No trainers around him though.
Just think, one day Kawhil Leonard might be an All-Star.
Kawhi Leonard has 27 points on 11/15 shooting.
Matt Barnes turns into Stephen Curry for one moment. I did say one moment. Let's not overdo it.
Electric Light Orchestra! Don't bring me down, Bruce.
Of course Kawhi winning DPOY has motivated him to prove he's the best offensive player on the floor. He's 10/14 with a game-high 24 points.
Kawhi Leonard just drove around DeAndre Jordan for a layup and made a 13-foot turnaround jumper to put Spurs up 56-40. Leonard 24 points.
Clippers had cut Spurs' lead to 4 with 3 minutes left in the 2nd quarter before Spurs went on a 9-0 run.
Halftime: Spurs 46, Clippers 38. Spurs shooting 43.9% from the field. Clippers are shooting 34.1%.
Make that 46-38 Spurs at halftime since it was a Blake Griffin two-point jumper.
Blake Griffin 22-footer at buzzer pulls Clippers to within 46-39 of Spurs at halftime and it's still a game.
Fans are incensed with refs after non-call on Boris Diaw.
Pop pulls more cue cards out of his pockets than I did while taking tests back in college.
