NBA.com Power Rankings

L.A. Clippers (25-6)

Pace: 94.5 (14), OffRtg: 108.1 (4), DefRtg: 97.3 (3), NetRtg: 10.8 (1)

The Clippers have risen from No. 11 to No. 3 in defensive efficiency during their 17-game winning streak, but only one of the 17 games was against a team that currently ranks in the top 10 offensively. That was the Christmas win over the Nuggets. A visit to Denver on Tuesday begins a very tough four-games-in-five-nights stretch in which all four games are against top-10 offenses.

After this many wins, with this schedule? Naw. I mean, I want to beat them...but they're just a .500 team, and ranked in the bottom half of the league. It's not that big a deal.

What would be funny is if VDN disrespects the Lakers so much he simply rested his starters that game. That would be something!

Every win is counted so it's always a big deal, only the lakers make that winning againts wizard and bobcats is a big deal. I hope the bottom tean will start winning so the lakers will be buried. lol!

Ha! I'd LOVE to see that! Biggest slap in the face to the Lakers. Hell I'd even mail Vinny money if Stern slapped him with a fine, be well worth it.

Memphis lost. If sa and okc lose as well, we'll finally start to separate from the pack

They play 90s ball that's why. They have a traditional big men and guards that rough up opponents. It reminds him of his era so maybe he's a bit bias

^the thing is, they may play that type of ball, and we still beat them at their own game in the playoffs.

And let's not forget, A Tribe Called Bench is pretty much a second starting team. In fact:

Code:
PG: Bledsoe | Green

SG: Billups | Crawford

SF: Butler  | Barnes    | Hill

PF: Odom    | Thompkins

C:  Turiaf  | Hollins

Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan would be the Big 3 to sit the game out if Vinny tried this.

He sees a fat rebounder in Z Bo who reminds him of himself when he was a young player.

I hate the fact that the OKC Thunder have such a weak schedule coming up. I really don't see them losing for some time....

The Nets are a joke right now. The 76ers are no threat. Don't get me started about the Raptors and Wizards.

Hopefully the Timberwolves can beat them again or the Trailblazers, or the Nuggets, heck even the Lakers hopefully.

Brother, you are directing your anger at the.wrong person. Be mad at players and coaches who are getting exposed.

^im not. im tired of seeing peploe like u trying to downplay our success. like i said, how can u say we will be middle of the pack with a 25-10 record. you come here and constantly post negative comments about this team, relishing the fact we lost 2 games in a row. smh.

Okc,memphis, SA, are better.

4 or 5 best is middle of the pack imo. And it all starts with the coach.

How far do u expect to go depending on Barnes and Crawford to shoot lights out.

Blake Griffin is an all star, but its not because he deserves it. Especially not this yr.

^ Tell that to the 500,000 people that are voting him in. Granted, they're just people with opinions... but so are you. And there are more of them than you, so you lose.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, Gus-Fring is a troll!

He never has anything significant/positive to say, all 148 of his posts are filled with negativity, I'm suprised he's not banned yet. I wish my man Cleepers was a mod he would sure handle these trolls!

Now all star votes from fans mean something? Its no reasoning with some u. They're at least 5pfs in the west playing better than him and u know it.

^ What those votes mean is that he'll be starting for the West... so basically, EVERYTHING.

Hate all you want, but we're riding high and getting recognition from the league and the fans.

To be honest I'm surprised you're even alive. You must be a new fan, because any Clippers fan that had been around for a while and was as pessimistic as you would have flung himself off a building long ago.

Im just tired of Blake Griffin and VDN. I could go on, but why bother.

Its a shame CP AND Barnes cant give Blake and DJ some heart.

And DJ and Blake are suppose to be buds, but they never fight for the other.

Also, how GS handled this win was disgusting. Even Jackson piled on after the gm. You would think that will wake these guys up, but who knows.
