A nice comeback win for the Clips as they move on to 2-0 against the Lakers this year. Down from 15 to take the win.

Beverley was outstanding down the stretch. Lakers need an agatiator like him to cause fits for the opposition.

Beverley is a dirty player & talks shit at all times. His biggest play was kneeing James in the groin. Asshole! -----Yohe

Beverley is an asshole when he's on the other team. When he's on your team, he's an asshole you love.

I'd be telling him to shut the fuck up & stop being a punk.--Yohe

"your team" = team you root for

If he were a Laker, we'd love him. Other than the dirty stuff.

Glad to see Covington go to the Rockets rather than the Clippers. He was far too perfect of a fit for the Clippers taking Maurice Harkless' spot.

I don't think the addition/subtraction adds up quite as well in Houston. Do they really think Hartenstein and Chandler can fill up the Bigs minutes with Capela gone? I get that they will go small quite a bit, but I don't think that works against the Lakers. Maybe there is a C they're going to pick up off the buyout market?

Anyway, didn't want him going to the Clips.

On the other hand, this might drive the Clips to getting Morris, who would be an even more killer in Harkless's spot.

Yikes!

And that's exactly what happened as Morris goes to the Clips for Harkless and others including next year's 1st rounder. Clips' draft haul gets more barren.

it should be noted greatly that Marcus Morris was involved in some controversy this past week;

Wonder if that kind of sped up the process for Morris to be dealt. Not a good look in 2020 for shitty comments like that.

Not only does Marcus Morris go to the Clippers, but Isaiah Thomas as well. Which is key because he would fill the role that Collison would've had.

And now they won't be acquiring Isaiah, which means Collison is still in play for the Clips.

Isaiah is getting cut.

Great move by the Clippers in getting Morris. Exactly the piece they needed.

I'll lose my shit if they get Collison.

They are getting another reserve point guard. Reggie Jackson, formerly of Detroit will sign with the Clips.

Might be a better option than Collison.

Probably not a better fit for them than Collison. Jackson is kinda similar to Williams, which makes it a bit of an odd fit at a bench guard duo if Beverly can stay healthy. His defense hasn't been very good, while Collison is pretty solid.

I think what the Lakers want is an improvement to Rondo defensively who can also handle the ball and shoot a little. Jackson did the offensive side, but the defense would have been a problem.

He will go off in some games to make this look like a good signing for the Clippers.

Anything that keep the ball out of the hands of Lou Williams, Leonard, George, Shamet, and Beverley is a good thing. Give Jackson 25 minutes a night. Great. I don't think he'll be in games during the playoffs. --- Yohe

He'll be in playoff games. Just with a lot less minutes.

During the regular season, he'll get:

* McGruder's minutes
* additional minutes because Beverly is hurt and may get hurt again
* additional minutes because PG is hurt and may limit minutes to a degree
* additional minutes because Kawhi will load manage

There are minutes to be had during the rest of the regular season simply because of how the Clippers manage minutes and get hurt. It's better to spend those on Jackson than McGruder, and better than overworking Lou, and better than putting pressure on Beverly to rush back / play hurt.

Collison is a better fit, just as he would have been with the Lakers. But for what the Clippers want to do and likely have to deal with in the rest of the regular season, Jackson makes okay sense. There will be games where he helps them win. You look at losses they've had to the Hawks or Kings or Bulls or Timberwolves, and maybe a Jackson helps in some of those.

I'd worry with the Lakers that he might mess with the chemistry, which Collison wouldn't other than taking Rondo's minutes which would piss of Rondo if he weren't cut. But I don't think Jackson can impact the Clippers chemistry.
