Special shoutout to Huerter who is quietly having a really good season, particularly defensively. Even Coach Nate has noticed, said he's staying in the starting lineup for now particularly because of his defense. He's had some timely steals during the win streak and is doing a very good job keeping his guy infront of him.

Refreshing to hear a coach praising his player’s hardwork!

And I thought I read somewhere we lost something like 10 or 12 of our games by 6 points or less, and half of those by 3 points or less?  Plus injuries (although every team has injuries).

Yep.  They got too confident when they were up by 20+.  That's easy to do when you've won 8 in a row, but then they looked like deer caught in headlights when the Clippers started rolling.  Glad to see Hunter back, but I think they played him too much, and he probably shouldn't have been in at the end.  Just don't think he's quite ready for this many minutes after being out for 2 months.

Should have used Gallo more...

Well - let's hope they'll learn.  This is a helluva road trip.  If they can come back home and go .500, that'll be good.  16 of their last 23 are at home...

This was after Saturday's game. It's exactly like Nate said--you can't get comfortable or complacent, especially not against a team that has two All-NBA players and defenders in Kawhi and Paul George and a 2x NBA Champion and Finals MVP in Kawhi.

It was a good showing against one of the top teams in the NBA on the road, but a loss is a loss. Can't have the above mentality and expect to win a chip, because that's the difference between a series win and a series loss.
