Clippers Vs. Jazz Game Preview By JORDAN GARRETSON Posted Dec 28 2012 2:44AM Another game for the Los Angeles Clippers means another opportunity to continue writing history. The Clippers can extend their franchise-best winning streak to 16 games on Friday night as they head to Salt Lake City to play the Utah Jazz, where they had lost 16 in a row before winning the last two contests, including one earlier this month. Los Angeles' streak is the league's longest since San Antonio ran off 15 straight into the playoffs last season. Another win would make it the best run since Boston won 19 consecutive games....

Our first back to back in a while and it's on the road. It will be a good test to see how our guys play on the second nights of back to backs which is the one scenario that worries me about this team. I think being able to rest our starters in the 4th quarter should help our guys stay fresh but our bench has to be able to stay fresh as well seeing how they account for a heavy amount of our overall scoring.

^ i think the starters will be able to play hard on both ends from the onset, which will make it easier for us to get the win.

Every game is balls-out for as long as this streak is alive. Every team wants to bust it.

But if we bring our (dare I say) "trademark" defensive intensity, we can keep winning for a long time.

Our guys are all well rested. Utah is always a tough opponent, these guys can really catch fire at home. We really cant afford to start the game sloppy.

GSW beat them on their court, that gives me confidence we can pull out another W here.

Fatigue shouldn't be a work for neither Starters or Bench. These guys are pros as long as your not playing 35 plus the night before there is still much energy left.

DJ, Blake, Odom and Ronny has to control the paint. Millsap and Jefferson will try to beast inside.

Lets get that sweet #16!

Mo being out is a huge help because he's motivated to kill us. That being said we need to continue the formula of clamping teams throats early and making them quit. If we let them stay in it for long it will be tough to put them away.

After all at the rest last night in the 4th our starters better be ready to show up and do work tonight. Matty Ice can't be the leading scorer every game. Razz

No excuses. Win #16InARow is upon us.

We should handle them. They were on fire from three in the first half last game at Utah. I don't think they'll repeat that.

Rebounding will be key in this game. As long as we're able to limit Big Al and Saps offensive rebounding we should be able to pull this one out easy. Also, Mo being out definitely helps a ton. We should have no problem forcing turnovers from their younger players. I love how tenacious our defense is. They're like a pack of wolves hounding the ball handler forcing the ball out of their hands and getting out on the break.

I'm sure our offensive rtg would be much higher if our starters actually played 4th quarters.

Not back to back at Utah. What it is... is that we play them in Utah tonight and back here in LA Sunday.

Man.... Willie Green playing way better but defensively he blew it now 3 times in a row. I'd consider benching DJ already... dude does NOTHING right lately. Like seriously dude crash the boards... do something! Stop pounding the ball in the paint if you can't score.

DeAndre Jordan seems to be regressing offensively. Getting stopped in the post by Al Jefferson TWICE is an all time low.

Is Green capable of getting defensive stops? I mean Foye is doing nothing but catching and shooting wide open shots when Green isn't even within 10 feet of him.

DJ will have to play more than his average minutes tonight. He is our only guy that is strong enough to defend Jefferson down low.

I'd put Barnes or Bledsoe in already. Hell even Crawford at least tries on D... but Foye cannot be allowed to run around free like this all game.

Dj's gonna have these kind of moments guys. The post moves are a work in progress. Id rather him making these mistakes now and learning from them in time for playoffs

WTF!? Odom got called for a foul when dude didn't touch anybody before that whistle went off. What a joke.

Jazz are using screens to get Foye open looks- it's not about individual defense by Green & CP3 here. There simply has to be better recognition by the entire team of these screens.

I agree. DJ used to turn it over after one dribble. Now he can dribble the ball 3-4 times without turning it over. Now he just has to learn how to finish with the jump hook more consistently.

Agree it's all screens but that's how the Jazz have played for 3 decades! Just defend the screens better. They also kept taking their off off their man.

Foye is hot right now, but he can quickly cool down as well.

Odom already improving our D tremendously over DJ by sealing his man off and now forcing two turnovers already. Sorry but DJ will be our bench backup 5 soon.
