10:11 AM ET 12.08 | The whispers have been growing louder around the NBA for weeks and now Friday's scoreless performance will get everyone's attention. With each lousy shooting performance, more and more people want to know: What has happened to Kyrie Irving? Irving's performance is baffling not only fans and his teammates, but other executives around the league. Players in the locker room have told me on multiple occasions he's missing shots he never missed before. "He's pouting," was the explanation I've heard recently from two league executives.

This should have been yesterday's story because he handled the clippers last night.

I think its funny how the littlest guy on the court was walking toward him and Griffin almost pulled a Melo and was running as fast backwards as he can forward.

Yeah but lord they got to get those stops at the end....Those threes were killing us...And dont even get me started on Vince. I thought Rick was about to have a stroke when he took that long three.

It looks like Kyrie may have broken out of his slump. One thing is for sure. The Clippers are highly over-rated. Losing to a below .500 team is not a good look for the defending Pacific division champs.

I never liked Vince. He is so inconsistent. I don't know what they see in him to trust him to take the last shots. He is horrible. I trust the Matrix a lot more.

Doc Rivers isn't looking too good right now.

I always felt he was over-rated as well. It took two maybe three future HOF players for him to win a title. Now he has a talented but undisciplined Clipper team that are great entertainment but don't have the heart of a champion.
