The best memes and tweets after another Clippers meltdown

Despite a 10-point lead entering fourth quarterback, the Clippers gambled away their double-digit lead over the Pelicans.

The NBA is a game of runs, and the Pels were lucky that their surge was best saved for last.

Despite a 15-point lead of their own in the second quarter, the Pelicans responded with a 34-6 run and ended the third quarter with a double-digit lead. But New Orleans stormed back in fourth, behind incredible coaching motivation from Willie Green and timely buckets from Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum.

The Clippers, shorthanded without Paul George (and without Kawhi Leonard all season) due to COVID-19, were running out of gas.

The Pelicans got the last laugh at a coaching adjustment clinic hosted by both Green and Clippers coach Ty Lue.

“He made adjustments,” Green said. “He did his best. We tried to adapt to them. It didn’t work for us. We put our bigs back in. That didn’t work for us either… So we threw darts at the dartboard.”

Eventually Green hit his target.

Pelicans defeat Clippers: Best memes and tweets

It’s hard to get too upset with the Clippers on the ground because without the likes of George and Leonard, the spares shouldn’t be fighting for a playoff spot. Professional basketball is an individualized sport, and George and Kawhi are arguably two of the top 20 basketball players.

But that doesn’t mean fans can’t troll, at least a little.

Lakers fans had a blast at the Clippers’ expense.

Where that came from was many more.

It wouldn’t be the NBA playoffs without a Clippers meltdown, that’s for sure.
