I know these get perennially posted on Clippers game threads but, for me, it always helps me to psyche up for the big game ahead and remind us of the emnity we hold towards this mob:

I've been hard on Jon Leuer this pre-season and season but I have to admit he showed me a lot last night. I think I may have been wrong about him. I know it is only one game but you have to believe that if he gets his confidence up he could be more than the Brian Cardinal ceiling I had him boxed into.

The thing that was most telling and promising about last night was that no one really did anything outside of their skillsets except Tony Allen with hitting those jumpers.

Jon can shoot and everything he hit was within his range, he hustled and played with energy and scored off of pickNrolls. Only anomaly may have been his shot blocking

Ed finished around the rim, scored off picknroll, missed FTs, rebounded well, blocked shots and played solid defense

Koufos missed shots, rebounded well, protected rim, hustled and played good defense

Tayshuan played solid defense and hit a few open shots

Conley scored but didn't chuck shots instead ran offense with a ton of pickNrolls to get guys easy looks and played defense. Then hit a few clutch baskets

Bayless hit a few shots and played with energy didn't have a big game but was valuable being a scoring threat

Franklin played solid enough got a rebound and bucket in his few minutes and didn't look overwhelmed

Calathes played jittery and badly

Miller played awful on defense and invisible on offense.

And we scored over 100pts within the offense just playing with energy and hustle (GnG). While technically no one did anything out of the ordinary. No one shot seven 3s or played one on one basketball heck no one really drew a double team. Perfect team basketball.

Ditto Chip, but "one game dost not maketh the man."
I hope we, and many others are proven wrong. If Leuer can continue like this on a regular and consistant basis, not only would it justify his 1rd pick status, and the trade made to bring him to Memphis, but it would be a massive step to solving our starting 3/stretch 4 problems.

We shall see....

Good luck Jon Leuer, hope you can show us all.

Thanks man! We'll give em the GRIZness too. Ha

With JJ out, that's one threat from the outside we don't have to worry about. It should be close to packed house tomorrow night. Can't wait.

I hope so but I wonder if many will stay home because of the bad weather headed this way?

Let's go Ed "Skinny" Davis and Jon "The White Gazelle" Leuer. Even if ZBo's back I want to see more of these guys on court.
