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 but I'm pleased," coach Vinny Del Negro said. "We're finding different ways to win."

Del Negro's club posted its third-highest field-goal percentage of the season (53.7) against Milwaukee after shooting 45.1 percent from the floor over its previous three contests.

While the Clippers were averaging 99.5 points before their winning streak, they've been even more productive with 106.4 during the recent surge.

The Pacific Division leaders have received key contributions throughout the rotation. Reserve Matt Barnes, who scored 21 on Saturday, has averaged 18.0 points over his last three games.

Los Angeles' bench is the league's second-highest scoring (42.1 points per game).

"We are definitely super-talented and our bench helps us win a lot of games," said center DeAndre Jordan, who had 15 points and 11 boards against the Bucks. "If we can stay healthy and continue to do what we are doing, we'll be OK."

Blake Griffin kept the team rolling with 18 points and 11 rebounds against the Bucks, giving him an average of 20.3 and 9.1 during the winning streak.

Griffin has averaged 19.7 points and 15.3 boards versus Detroit in three career meetings.

Behind him, the Clippers rank second in the league in the paint (48.0 points per game) after scoring 66 on Saturday.

They have a chance to continue their dominance against the Pistons, who sit near the bottom of the league in points allowed in the paint (43.5 per game).

Playing a third game in four nights, Detroit (7-19) looks for only its third win in December after losing 88-77 to Indiana on Saturday night.

"We can't use fatigue as an excuse because every team does the same thing," reserve center Andre Drummond said after finishing with 11 points and nine rebounds.

Greg Monroe was one of the bright spots with 18 points and eight rebounds for the Pistons, who dropped their fourth straight at home.

Monroe, the team's scoring leader at 15.2 points per game, had 23 and 15 rebounds in Detroit's only meeting against the Clippers in 2011-12, but that effort wasn't enough as Los Angeles rallied to win 87-83 in overtime behind Chris Paul's 19 points and 15 assists.

Guards Rodney Stuckey and Brandon Knight combined for 13 points on 4 of 22 shooting in that loss, but they're playing well of late. Stuckey has scored 17.3 points per game in his last seven, while Knight has averaged 21.5 in his past six.

The Pistons, however, shot just 38.6 percent from the field against the Pacers and have made 40.1 percent during their four-game losing streak. Those struggles could continue against a Los Angeles team that has limited its opponents to 39.5 percent from the field in the last four games.

The Clippers have won four of their last five against Detroit.

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.

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!

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.

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.
