Clippers Vs. Pistons Game Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Dec 16 2012 9:34PM An all-around effort has the Los Angeles Clippers on the brink of a historic winning streak. That doesn't appear likely to end on Monday when they visit the Detroit Pistons, who will try to avoid their fifth straight loss. Los Angeles (17-6) continued to play well at both ends Saturday night in a 111-85 win at Milwaukee that gave the team its ninth consecutive victory. It's the longest winning streak for the franchise since the Buffalo Braves captured 11 in a row during the 1974-75 season. "It's not easy to win in this league....

Possible 10 game winning streak... The Los Angeles Clippers... I need someone to pinch me because I know I've been in bed sleeping, having wonderful dreams.

Wow, going for our 10th straight win! It seems lately there is really nothing to analyze or talk about with this team, these guys are just doing everything right. Kinda feels weird lol. Anyways, lets go Clippers! The team already knows what they need to do.

Front court should get out there and do work! Pistons front court is far overmatched here. Their backcourt can give us some trouble, we shouldn't sleep on them.

Tough matchups are as following: Boston, Denver, Utah at HOME, that's about it.

10 games tonight, count on it. This team is dialed in, pretty clear after the beating they gave the Bucks and shutting down Jennings and Ellis.

I wouldn't be surprised if we got 12 games to break the Buffalo record before tripping, next games are NOH (revenge) and Sac. Hell at this point anything less than 13 before losing to Denver would be a disappointment, but we really should win it out until probably the Utah road game... 15 win streak! Let's do it Clips!

You forgot Utah on the road. That will be our toughest game for the rest of this month.

I think Greg Monroe is going to get DJ in foul trouble, and watch out for Singler.

The Orange County Register says EBled will play tonight. That is good, because this could be a trap game without him. We have 5 players on our team who are having career seasons, which is saying a lot, since those 5 players are probably in our 7 best. BG, DJ, Bledsoe, Barnes and Crawford are the players I am speaking of having career seasons. Fortunately we have a good winning culture against the Pistons, so with Bledsoe healthy and good production from BG and DJ, we should be ok. (side note: we are #2 for paint production, and the Pistons defense and paint points are atrocious, good match for us).

Also, Lamar is playing well the past 10 games. He has averaged 5 points, 6.1 rebounds, and a steal. This is pretty good considering he plays only 21 mins and only gets 2 fouls per game.

Odom might not be 100% yet, but he is playing the minimum needed for us to benefit from him, and he will only get better!

We should hit 12 wins at least. Tonight should be a spanking. We play a tired team (3 of 4 nights) which is losing. We've had rest, and short trip. We are hot, they are cold.

Wednesday back at home against NO.... revenge factor... 11... Friday against Kings... 12... I am not as scared of Celtics at home as Utah on the road. We beat them a few weeks ago in Utah, very much a winnable game... Undefeated December would get us cover of S.I. is my guess

Let's try to keep Stuckey under 20 points. If we can do that and limit their three-point shooting, we have a chance to win.

Hoping that CP3 will come out aggressive like he did against the Bucks. He pretty much set the tone in those first 5 minutes of the game.

I have a feeling this going to be another one of those games, where our starters will build up only a moderate to slight lead and the bench will create the separation.

See this is when starting Willie Green bites you in the ass and what I talked about that you guys were offended by. Had our better players that can actually hit open shots or get defensive stops been in we wouldn't be down. We can't afford to give bad teams breathing room like this.

Wow, c'mon Bledsoe! The second unit scrubs easily stole that ball. Imagine if he was starting? Hmmmmm...

Vinny back to being a bonehead. Why is Barnes not in yet despite dominating during this win streak!? He should be the first player in with the way Butler is struggling last 10 games. I don't understand the rotations.

Vinny doesnt his own rotations. Get the guy the deepest team in the league and make it hard for him to screw it up
