"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

LMAO Griffin did not have that much momentum to flip in the air like that
He needs to implement that into the next dunk contest.

But if you said that on their streak you'd be called a hater

Of course the Clippers lose two straight as they return to face the Lakers.
I swear the Lakers luck. They either face a team that is due for a win or they are getting a player back from injury.
If the Lakers force the Clippers to play a half court game and Dwight and Pau actually look for their shots and aren't so hesitant that Nash thinks twice about passing it to them we should beat the Clippers.
Their bench is basically "Jamaal Crawford do everything" take him out of the equation means Barnes and Odom have to beat you.... no worry there.
But then again Kobe pretty much has said all this in terms of why he isn't worried about them.
he also said "they will be up to face us, winning streak or not" so if they come in with an edge and we come in with an edge it will be an entertaining game where both teams can give it their all And It will be enjoyable!
of course if we don't come in with an edge they will blow us out 105 to 93 while running us out of the gym and ESPN will have a field day with it.

Clippers shot 36% against the Warriors when forced into a half court game
Unfortunately the Lakers can't force any team to do anything other than score at a high clip.
D'Antoni needs to get this team to slow down just a bit. We have too much talent to not be effective and we really get out of wack when we try and run uptempo

Houston, Utah, and Golden State won. Portland and Minnesota lost. Minnesota lost to Utah, another team trying to get one of those spots.
I honestly think some of these teams are going to keep winning, which will make it tough on the Lakers.

1st of all, blake is way too strong to be getting tossed around in the air like that with a measly little arm grab.
secondly, one of these days his tendency to ridiculously flop in the middle of the air is gonna get him seriously injured, and i will feel no remorse him

Flop, no doubt about it
I don't think the Clippers have doing it as much this season from what I've watched of them, but I still see it. I think main one I still see is Blake faking getting hit whenever he grabs a rebound.
