Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
“36-66 & 116-115.” Alvin Gentry said he put that on the board in the locker room, wanting his team to tell him what it was.
Tyrese Haliburton correctly guessed it was the Clippers win last night vs. Wizards. Gentry pleading for 48 minute effort as LA rallied from 35 down twice – 6:14 PM

Last night was a dream. PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
The NBA’s L2M report says Bradley Beal’s foul on Luke Kennard was incorrectly called.
“Beal places two hands on Kennard’s body & makes contact with his arm, prior to the start of his upward shooting motion. A personal foul should be assessed and the basket should not count.” PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Why did the Wizards give up a 35-point lead and lose to the Clippers? Here’s a recording of the live podcast @Joan Nielsen and I recorded this afternoon for @TheAthletic, answering readers’ questions. Thank you to all the readers who joined us!…4:40 PM

Los Angeles Clippers @LAClippers
Like @Terance Mann said: “THAT’S WHAT WE DO!” PM

Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Clippers have the Come-back thing down Pat. Next, and I’m sure coach Lue and his staff are on top of this – How to avoid these big, early deficits? – 2:10 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
I’m back in L.A. now, my time on the road trip up as I reintroduce myself to T-shirt weather and my family, but @latimessports is going to have excellent coverage of the next few games, starting with @Brad Turner tonight for Magic/Clips. – 2:05 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 2018, the @Los Angeles Clippers Lou Williams had 40 points and 10 assists in a 109-100 win over the Grizzlies.
Williams became just the third bench player to record at least 40 points and 10 assists in a game since the NBA began tracking starters in 1970-71. PM

Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Just noted that guard Eric Bledsoe was a part of two of the greatest come-backs in LA Clipper history. The 27-point come from behind play-off win in Memphis in 2012 and the unreal 35-point revival last night in Washington.
I’d like to hear his perspective on the two games. – 1:58 PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mike Muscala compared ten day center Mamadi Diakite to Serge Ibaka, praises Diakite’s jumper as well. – 1:56 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Mike Muscala said Mamadi Diakite might have the best looking jump shot on the team. Muscala said he sees a little bit of Serge Ibaka in Diakite. – 1:55 PM

Oh, hey, they have another game today in Orlando:
Paul George – right elbow-ulnar collateral ligament tear

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Marcus Morris Sr. will miss his 3rd game of this road trip due to personal reasons.
Rest of Clippers injury report for Orlando stays same as well (George, Leonard, Preston out due to injury recovery, Johnson in the G)
Mo Bamba is questionable for Orlando. – 1:20 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Marcus Morris Sr. remains out tonight at Orlando due to personal reasons. – 1:16 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Late last night, as I left D.C.’s arena, @LAT_ChrisStone asked if we could go deeper on this two-week Clippers run. Here’s my stab at it, and it starts in Missouri, where Ty Lue’s friends have heard him say a similar refrain for years.…1:14 PM
