Tough loss for the Clippers....even tougher cuz Barnes got fouled on that putback...nearly got a technical right after his put back too....Clippers had many chances to win this game but it shows that this team has some glaring weaknesses....they're primarily a jump shooting team and they're gonna get eaten alive by the Nuggets or Grizzlies if they finish with the 5th seed.

This is nuts

Since 1/1/13: Lakers 23-21, Clippers 24 - 20.

And the difference in their records is the 2 losses by the Lakers against them. Crazy

Floppers are an average for some time now ... it won't probably matter against us though as CP3 is going to get everything he wants from the high PNR

Carmelo Anthony is unstoppable today. :man4:

He might break 50.

First 50 point game I've ever seen all on jumpers (and FTs). I don't think he even took a shot inside the paint.. Sick performance

with the way it stands today, the clippers are 4th and memphis 5th, however if memphis has a better record do they get home court over the clippers in round 1 in the 4/5 matchup even though they are the lower seed?

you're sure bout that? as it stands now Clipps are still 4th in the standings even though they have a worse record then Mem. I think they get 4th regardless because of being div. champs, they just dont automatically get 3rd anymore.

I answered the question whether the Clippers lose home court to Memphis if the latter has a better record.

yea and the latter (Mem) does currently have a better record as it stands now but in the standing it still shows Clipps as 4th. So standings dont matter, they still lose home court?

^^Divison leaders get higher seeds if I am correct BUT if their opponent in the opening round has a better record like in the case of Memphis then the Grizzlies have home court.

Yeah it's really pointless for the NBA to guarantee the division winners a top-4 seed if they aren't going to get HCA against a lower-seeded team.

It would be a huge help if the division winner is a 6th seeded team.

It's weird to think that 50 is Carmelo's career best and he's only matched it once, and that most recent effort was against the superfriend's b-team. Really puts into perspective how exceptional even 40 points in a game is for most players. But especially with Anthony who has the reputation as being one of the best 'pure scorers' in the league. But other than his 33-point quarter(which is epic, without a doubt) as well as some late-game heroics and just general hot streaks he gets. It kind of seems like hot air. Also puts into perspective just how ludicrous some of Kobe's scoring feats have really been. The consensus is that Durant is the most liable to be the guy to take the scoring mantel into the future and be the guy who will drop 60 or more but maybe not. Maybe it just really is that hard to do as well the game has changed enough that those types of scoring outputs are less necessary.

Was interesting to hear the Hawk's crowd oo'ing and aah'ing for Melo to shoot near the end of that game tonight though. Fans still love huge scoring efforts.

no one really shoots as much as kobe though. Not a knock on kobe because hes earned the right to shoot when he wants but I think if melo or durant shot as many shots then they would have more 50/60+ pt games. If westbrook wasnt shooting at every chance he gets then I could see durant looking alot more like kobe.

Kobes scoring records are amazing though none the less

Looks like Heat and Thunder are the only two teams which can stay healthy for since the 2011-2012 season ..

I don't really care for Westbrook. In fact, I kind of dislike him. But it's pretty amazing that he's stayed healthy and hasn't missed a single game in his career so far, given that he's such an aggressive player.
