Apparently CJ is MIA cause he ussually does these things but since he's out I decided to do it! Here is the pregame report from Carmax, The first afternoon game of the year for the Clippers doubles as the first chance to take on an Eastern Conference playoff team from last season. So far the Clippers (4-2) have fared well in situations that required their attention. They have wins against three of the top four seeds in the West last year and a convincing 13-point victory at the Rose Garden, one of the league's most daunting home-court advantages. On Sunday they host the new-look Atlanta Hawks (2-2) with Atlanta, opening a four-game West Coast road trip. Asked if he was worried about his team playing its initial 12:30 p.m. game of the season, Head Coach Vinny Del Negro said, "There are no excuses. You go and play the games and we have to perform well." The Clippers are one of the highest scoring teams in the league, topping 100 points or more in their first six games to match a franchise record. But for Blake Griffin, the offense starts with the team's defense. "Really just coming out and playing solid and playing good defense and making sure we're on our rotations," Griffin said. "Our focus needs to be defensively right out of the gate every game and we've done a good job with that [the last two games] and it helps our offense flow." LAST TIME OUT Clippers 103, Trail Blazers 90: Their 25-point lead was cut to four early in the fourth quarter, but the visiting Clippers righted the ship behind Jamal Crawford and Chris Paul's 17 combined points in the last 11 minutes. Crawford, a one-time Trail Blazer, finished with a game-high 25 points in his return to the Pacific Northwest and Paul had 21 points, six assists and three steals in a matchup with rookie point guard Damian Lillard. DeAndre Jordan added 21 points and eight rebounds, while Nicolas Batum led the Trail Blazers with 23 points and a season-high tying nine rebounds. The Clippers, playing the second night of a back-to-back, pulled away from Portland in the second quarter, going on a 22-2 run with their vaunted bench doing much of the damage. "Overall I thought we had a solid bench night, and then Chris [Paul], down the stretch, made some plays when he had to, and Jamal [Crawford] was great," Del Negro said. Heat 95, Hawks 89: Even without superstar Dwyane Wade (illness), the defending champion Heat found a way to knock off Atlanta at Phillips Arena. Miami went on a 15-2 run in the first quarter punctuated by a Ray Allen 3-pointer. And after the Hawks took a halftime lead, LeBron James and Chris Bosh made plays down the stretch to regain control, including a jumper from James with 14 seconds left to seal it. James had 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists and Bosh totaled a game-high 24 points. Point guard Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 20 points and 11 assists. NOTEWORTHY MATCHUP DeAndre....

Easy there Champ, I'm not missing in action. I was waiting for the game preview to be posted. Looks like this season, they post it same day, not a day before. Anyhoo, I came here to post it now but you got it first.

Good job, you put it in the right place!

You need to put the date on it though. Hit EDIT and add it on.

Another very win-able game for us, but the Hawks looked great against OKC last week. If we contain Teague and Smith, it shouldn't be a difficult win for us.

Hawks is very winnable but that's what scares me lol. Contain smith and horford is our priority so another big game for Jordan and griffin is needed

[moderator edit - illegal site links are not allowed]

Not sure why the first site is blocked but there are three other options i posted lol.

That will get you banned. I suggest you PM the links and delete those links before david sees them.

*the reason it's blocked is cause david has blocked some of the sites here. That should have given you pause.

That's weird, you have more than 95 posts. I ran into the same problem with posting links a few days ago too. I just told the person I was PMing to google the key words. Of course, there were no actual links, I just had to be creative so the filter wouldn't catch it.

Look, I quoted you with the links so they're still there. You amended your post so you're safe. I will go back in a bit and delete your quote. If david sees this, I'll take the heat.

This will be a great test for us this afternoon. WE have the talent both on and off the bench, but I am curious to see how we start out. We usually go to Caron and DJ early.

Hoping we dont start off sluggish or looking like we have a hangover. ATL won't quit, but we need to show up, scrap, and win this one.

Lol Atlanta is starting a frontcourt of Pachulia, Horford and Smith at 3. Reason why according to Larry Drew? To match up with DeAndre Jordan. That's how you know the man has improved.

Also Vinny said Odom has lost 8 pounds so far.

That's awesome, I say he needs another 2 weeks to take off ALL the fat, another week to get some muscle, and finally another 2 weeks to get back into complete form and make that elbow shot! (and layups) AWESOME!

Hopefully this doesn't lead up to Caron getting beat up with Smith attacking

I agree but it can also work in our favor. Smith isn't good at all at playing the 3 and will be forced out on the perimeter. Butler will just have to keep hands up on the shot and cut off drives and the rest will handle itself.

watch out for korver he's their best shooter. im also assuming DJ is going to get double teamed from start to finish which will probably throw him off his game because he's not used to double teams and im sure he doesn't know how to react to them.

That will leave BG open in the post and Butler open on the perimeter, if only Odom would be ready we would start him to match with Smith!

Wish Odom was good to go we need his size to match Smith or to put him in so Blake can guard Smith

DJ is a beast! I want him to keep going, we need some way to matchup good against Smith, I would like Barnes to come in, he's good at that!

Bledsoe= beautiful chaos. Dude goes out of control and tumbles to the floor while finishing a layup in traffic
