What ever happened to Clipper optimism?

Sure, it was a close game until the 4th, but how can you not be happy with a win against a team that had won 8 of its last 10. Not to mention it was pretty much the same team (minus Steve Blake) that beat us two games ago.  Yeah there were negatives in the game, but I thought this game was a huge step in the right direction for the team.  I've been pretty critical of Dunleavy's coaching, but I thought he did a great job and made some solid adjustments at halftime.  Maybe Clipsnations expectations are higher than the Clips are performing so far this year, but the fact that the Clips turned the ball over 20 times and still won this game easily in the 4th, shows that they're finding ways to win games.  Kaman continues to dominate and it was nice to see him have a 9-13 night.  Besides the turnovers, BD played a solid game. Gordon played well, and Camby continues to be a work horse day after day.  And the bench played well, pretty much without Al Thornton!  I know some people are with me, but why all the negativity? We're 15-18, 4 wins away from our total from last season and it's the beginning of January!  Blake's nearing a return (whenever the "6 week" injury is over), the team is continuing to mesh and look better playing together on the court, and they've won 3 of 4 (4 in a row at home).  Bottom line is that we're not going to win a championship this year, most likely will have a tough time getting in the playoffs, but there are a lot of positives in Clipperland.  Heck, the players seem to have confidence, why don't we?
