Having too much fun.....



Business before pleasure...an old adage that the young players of the Clippers need to be reminded of. Although we won against the Warriors, the win was tarnished by the team's performance on the last 2 quarters that showed the  team was not entirely focussed on work....picture a young team  enjoying their new found success and losing sight of what work is all about.  Ordinarily, the more experience players would assert themselves to  get the young ones aligned. Unfortunately, some of them join the "fun", where a lot of  uncalled for "alley oops" were tried resulting to turnovers. VDN had to call a timeout to correct the situation but some of the  harm was already done.

There is nothing wrong about being an exciting team. What is wrong is forgetting to be mindful that we need to finish the game with a "W" and win with efficiency.

Also, there is a false notion out there that an exciting team is one who  does a lot of dunks and alley oops. An exciting team is one who wins! The dunks and the alley oops contribute of course, but the main thing is to win and be smart in winning games.

Lastly, we need to protect our most valuable asset, Blake. We don't want him to get hurt by forcing him to attempt to make an almost impossible alley oop dunks. Our PGs should be reminded all the time that they should use good judgement in throwing alley oops that are not dangerous. Blake's style of playing is fearless but we do not need to add  more risk to his way of playing.

As VDN says a dunk is only for 2pts!  The safety of our players and the wins are the most important thing.
