    Clips were up 11 after 3 quarters. They pulled away after a neck-and-neck game.

    Nugs w/o Jokic/Murray/Aaron Gordon.

    DEN wins by 9.

    Off the bench, Brick: 14/11/3 and one fight with the hometown fans. In 27 mins.

    PG13: 2 for 13 from the floor, 0-4 from downtown; ex-Clip Deandre Jordan had around 8 alley-oop dunks starting in place of Joker.
    Ex-Clip Reggie Jackson: 35/5/13 on 15 of 19 from the field.

    I'd say "Bwhahahahaha!" but that would be cheap. Lemme just say: we got shellacked in PHI so it was only right that the wheels continue to fall off for the Clips.

    Zoyd why did Beard not shoot once in the 4th quarter? Was he seriously covered that well or pissed about something already in your opinion?

    LTLakerF: Just now saw this. Since Beardie left HOU I don't know WTF is going through his head. We saw the same thing in Brooklyn and PHI: he just seems to decide to to be a playmaker only. For some reason. I do wonder though. As much as you do. I don't think he had guys draped over him so much he couldn't shoot. It's not like they were doubling him every time.

    It seems to be B.) Something else

    And I don't know what it is. Anyone else have an idea?

    The official statisticians had to, I think, only note Beardie three times in the 4th Q loss of Clips lead and 9 point loss in the game:

    1. He came in around the 8 min mark of the 4th.
    2. He made a bad pass and turned it over.
    3. He made a bad pass and turned it over.
    That's The System's contribution in that loss, in crunch. I'm sure he'll be back. (LOL. Remember when he scored 65, 57, 62 or whatever it was that one ten day stretch with HOU many years ago? 2017?)

    He'd be so much better trying to be that guy on some Bottom 5 team, although yea: I don't think he's in shape. I wonder if he even cares.

    has any reporter asked him if he thinks things would have been different had he happily accepted a limited bench role here for the minimum?

    i mean, just for rhetorical purposes. he and pat bev talking all kinds of s*** whilst playing on vet mins from the bench in their appropriate roles.
