Clippers seek to stop slide, maintain playoff position

first_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The really bad news for the Clippers is their remaining regular-season games are against the Warriors (55-24) on Sunday and then, in Wednesday’s regular-season finale, at home versus the Utah Jazz (49-30). The Warriors won’t lack motivation Sunday, when they can lock up the top seed with a win.The Clippers (47-33) are a combined 1-4 against those teams, which are a combined 17-3 in their past 20 games.And what about the two teams aggressively nipping at the Clippers’ heels?Oklahoma City (46-33) currently holds the seventh seed and is just a half-game behind the Clippers. The Thunder have three regular-season games remaining: Sunday at Minnesota (36-43), Tuesday vs. Houston (52-28) and Wednesday at Milwaukee (59-20).San Antonio (46-34) – occupying the eighth seed and one game behind the Clippers, for now – has two games left, against lowly Cleveland (19-61) and Dallas (31-48). Having split the season series with both teams, various tiebreakers could determine seedings should the Clippers finish tied with Oklahoma City or San Antonio.If the Clippers and Spurs wind up tied, San Antonio holds a tiebreaker with a better in-conference record. And if the Thunder and Clippers finish in a tie, it could come down to which team has a higher winning percentage against playoff teams in the conference.

And as Montrezl Harrell pointed out before the Clippers beat the Warriors on Nov. 12: Golden State has to “play us.”“From a mental standpoint, we have kind of strayed away from the things that got us here,” rookie guard Landry Shamet said Friday, when the Clippers’ ball movement was sluggish and he missed the only three shots he took.Lou Williams suggested the Clippers’ inexperience might be a factor in their abrupt slide, adding that the team’s veteran leaders need to do more to steer the squad in the right direction.“We have a lot of first-time guys, and once we clinched, we kind of took our foot off the gas a little bit,” said Williams, who was 4 for 12 from the floor en route to 18 points Friday. “That comes with experience. I think myself and (Danilo Gallinari) need to try and do a better job to get the message across to those guys that they have to finish the season as strong as they can.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — Quite suddenly, the Clippers’ last-gasp grasp on the sixth seed in Western Conference standings seems tenuous, at best.Two consecutive stunning losses – a blowout vs. Houston and a missed opportunity against the short-handed, struggling Lakers – leave the Clippers with just two games to regain their footing. At risk is the real possibility of slipping into eighth place for a probable matchup against the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors.These last two regular-season games might not be must-wins – the Clippers are playoff-bound no matter how many points Alex Caruso drops on them – but they might want to think about them that way, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.“(Seeding) matters, it absolutely matters,” Rivers said after Friday’s 122-117 loss to a Lakers lineup loaded with G League players. “I don’t think anyone wants to play Golden State. If we have to, we’ll be ready, but my guess is the other seven teams aren’t volunteering. That’s all I’m gonna say.” Not having professional instigator Patrick Beverley available – he’s been out three of the past four games with a hip pointer – hasn’t helped either, the Clippers agreed.“We’ve always been a collective group,” Williams said. “So any time anybody goes out, it hurts the chemistry of the team. Obviously, what he brings to the table, lots of intensity and energy, those are the things we’ve been lacking. We try to fill that void the best we can and we haven’t been successful doing it.”“Luckily,” Shamet said, “we have time. It’s not like our season comes down to tomorrow. But we want to fix it as quick as possible, start playing the way we can play and hopefully go from there.” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters last_img read more
