Clippers-Trail Blazers Preview By NOEY KUPCHAN Posted Nov 08 2012 3:03AM With Chris Paul running the show and Blake Griffin down low, the Los Angeles Clippers feature one of the game's most explosive offenses. Their defensive efforts are also earning some well-deserved acclaim. The Clippers try to build on an impressive result and pick up a rare road win over the Portland Trail Blazers when these teams square off Thursday night. Los Angeles (3-2), which opened 2-0 before suffering back-to-back home losses, regrouped Wednesday with a 106-84 victory over previously undefeated San Antonio. Griffin and DeAndre Jordan combined for 42 points and 21 rebounds while Paul....

We'll win this game. Mainly because it's Olshey's team and I'm sure they'd love to crush him. I hope they know that Olshey is so petty and classless that he will actually talk $hit if they luck into a W in this one. Can't let that happen. We should tear them up.

They don't even have a Center. If DJ performs like he did tonight he might build some actual confidence.

Blazers are so lucky they have not played a game since Monday! They had 3 days to rest and come up with a game plan against us! Plus Blazers are a tough out in the Rose Garden. As long as we play well, we will win. We need to bring the same energy as against the Spurs! Rebounding and defense! DJ needs to slow down Lamarcus like he did against Duncan!

This. We basically need a duplicate of last night's performance. Strong individual defense against the Blazers' best players (Aldridge, Lillard and Batum) and guard the 3 point line. Plus, rebound, rebound, rebound.

I have to say though that our bigs crush guys that aren't good at rebounding! ANd I know our recipe for success: INTENSITY, on the defensive end, and keep looking for the open guy or lane on the offense! LET'S CRUSH THEM NOW!

As long as Lillard doesn't pull a Waiter and we play D and rebound like last night, we'll bag this one.

The team should expect a big game from DJ since they don't have a center. Hold him accountable. Tonight he has a chance to follow up the great game he played against the big fundamental last night and show everyone that he's earning his salary. Expect Jamal to go off as well. He didn't get many touches last night and I think that he is going to go out and play hard against his former squad.

Hopefully the Clips respond the way they should and beat a team like the Blazers. Especially after a big win over SA. This is the true test tonight. Go Clips!

Agree... This is a big game, on the road against a team well rested, back to back, first game vs. O'Shey... The key is making sure Batum doesn't go crazy from three. If we win this, we basically have two games the next week and a half.

The key is not turning the ball over and rebounding. Blazers have a pretty bad bench averaging 14 points a game. We can't let their shooters get off with open 3s.

I'll call this the "Revenge of Jamal Crawford" game. I think he goes off tonight for 20+ and we win!

I know, I know. I'm getting a lot of heat for playing Odom. To be honest with you Mark Cuban and I had a poker game...i lost so i had to take Lamar off his hands, im so sorry Clippers nation

I say Jamal Crawford goes off tonight. I'm sure he'll have a point to prove to Portland after the bad year he had last year & how quickly they got rid of him. And he didn't do a lot against San Antonio so he should be due for a better game tonight(probably why he didn't give it all against San Antonio). Hopefully DJ stays out of foul trouble (Lamarcus Aldridge) & we see a lot of minutes from eric Bledsoe(Lillard) and Caron Butler(for Nicolas Batum)

Butler doesn't have that good a defense, if anything I would love to see Barnes irritate Batum!

Butler's in better shape this year (as opposed to last year) besides he plays with one hand if we need him too. And Barnes just can't seem to be able to do anything offensively.

Clippers as always making it easy as hell for teams with sloppy defensive rotations. Why the fu** are we playing off their shooters? Aldridge has become a jumpshooter with no post threat this season. Let the dude drive to the paint but don't give the guy 4 feet of space to shoot! Same with their wings. Make them drive.

CP3 finally being aggressive!

Looks like CP is taking the challenge from the rook. Schooling the young guy.
