Clippers Vs. Suns Game Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Dec 07 2012 10:03PM Already one of the highest scoring teams in the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Clippers have taken their offense to another level lately. The Clippers seek their fifth straight win on Saturday when they host the Phoenix Suns, losers of five in a row. Los Angeles (12-6) surpassed 100 points for the fourth straight game on Wednesday night, cruising to a 112-90 victory over visiting Dallas.

Games like these next 2 make me nervous, though I guess it bodes well for tomorrow that they're 5-0 on 2+ days of rest.

as long as we contain dragic and the 3 point shot from the suns, we should win tomorrow.

We should dominate this game with our work ethic and hustle. I feel like in games like these going against what are considered weaker teams, we tend to rely too much on the sheer talent of our squad. When that happens, we often get out worked in area's like rebounding which leads to too many second chance points for our opponents. We need that dominant mentality when we go up against any team, but especially need it against teams that we should actually dominate.

This better be a blow out. The Mavs, who we killed by 22 went to Phx the very next night and beat them.

The only way we lose is if we don't bring the energy.

Win by 20+!

Watch out for the Euros!

Dragic and Gortat seem to have their way with us lately and these early games always worry me. The players (and the crowd) had better bring the energy as if it was Saturday night - because it is in Europe time!

Yeah,,I am nervous. These next two on paper are wins,,in reality both of these teams seem to give us a heck of a hard time,,especially the Suns. they seem to always be at their best against us. It's like for some reason they just can't stand the Clips.

By looking at the play by play seems Butler and Green are bumming it once again.

A Hill/Barnes platoon will suffice. Trade Butler if possible.

It'll be easiest to Trade Caron in the off-season when he becomes an expiring.

Wow BG is becoming potent with that jump shot, and really becoming a threat in that triple threat part of the floor

Again if he isn't shooting well, he's almost worthless.

Its not even about shooting well.... Bad passes. Letting Dudley get uncontested 3s.... He is an extreme net negative like that.

Poor shooting is acceptable since people get hot and cold but poor defense, lack of hustle, careless decision making is not.

Caron can be so frustrating. Missing some open jumpers...then trying to pass the ball in mid jumpshot. That's inexcusable for a guy who's been in the league as long as he has. BG on the other hand...
