    Anybody here ever seen this guy Milos Teodosic? 30 year old, Serbian. 6'5"/195........

    Watched the Clippers game last night and he looked damn good! Court vision was superb and he was tossing some nice dimes out there. Him and Lou Williams together looked nice. ALot of turnover down there, but the Clips might catch some people off guard.

    I watched a bit of this game as well. I agree - they looked better than I expected.

    He is supposed to be legit, but there are doubts that he can handle a full NBA season and the physicality.

    Reminds me a little of when Ricky Rubio came in the league. Amazing passer, high bbiq. So much fun to watch!

    I'd give them Bazz aannnddd Meyers for him. How could they say no?

    A lot will depend on how healthy Blake and Gallo can be and how Doc manages a team with more quality depth then he's had in the past. But I agree, I think they're getting dismissed by too many people right now.

    Yes I watched it as well. He ran the team pretty well. They kept saying he was a better shooter than he was showing last night.
    I looked up his Euro stats and they were decent. We will see how that translates, but no doubt he can dribble and pass well.

    The Clippers are gonna be real solid, they will wear some teams down with their depth imo.

    I agree, it will be a battle for us just to make the playoffs. Unless we can make a trade for another consistent good player (more like two in the west)we may be a team picking in the low lottery next June.

    Teodosic has great BBIQ, good shooter, elite court vision, amazing passer, but ozone hole on defence
    so if Doc uses him properly, hell be great addition to their offence

    Yeah the battle for those last 4 spots is going to be crazy. Minnesota is the only team I feel pretty sure about in that bunch.

    Here's my top choices / predictions for 1st round west matchups:

    #1 GSW vs #8 UTH
    #2 HOU vs #7 LAC
    #3 SAS vs #6 POR
    #4 OKC vs #5 MIN

    Blake, Gallo and Lou Will. You could argue that all 3 of those guys are top 40 offensive players.

    I am suprised they didn't start Lou Williams, and bring Rivers off the bench. But, hey daddy's coaching.

    I understand it. Rivers isn't good but he's a better defender than Lou Will and I think it's in the Clippers best interest to keep 2 of BG/Gallo/Lou on the floor for as many minutes as you can and starting them together makes that harder to do.
