Clippers Vs. Nuggets Game Preview Posted Dec 31 2012 5:07PM LOS ANGELES (AP) - Having wrapped up December with just the third 16-0 month in NBA history, the Los Angeles Clippers face tough challenges starting the new year. They'll play four games this week, with two opponents having winning records and the other at .500. The Clippers take their franchise-record 17-game winning streak into Denver on Tuesday night, where the Nuggets are 9-1 at home. "It'll be a big test for us," forward Blake Griffin said. Denver (17-15) is the first game of a back-to-back, with a visit to Golden State on Wednesday. The Warriors....

I don't care how good a team is, winning on the road against Denver and Golden State back-to-back seems just about an impossible task. It's almost like it was designed to make a team lose.

I love our team so it doesn't matter what happens. They've been amazing and a dream to watch. My hope we make through this with our heads held high knowing we played our best and continue to keep up our defensive intensity throughout the season.

4 games in 5 night sounds like a big challenge but for a team as deep as this team, I think we take care of business!

4-0 week and #21 straight!

CP and Blake come up big this week and shuts up all the critics!

^and? they are still tough at home, which means they can make the clippers have to play hard throughout the game, which directly impacts the game with the warriors on wednesday

Bump

We gotta keep Faried and McGee in check. Those two can energize the crowd

I hope to see some great interior passing from our bigs... just to prove George Karl right, of course...

"They pass up 3-footers just to get a dunk"

Gotta watch out for Gallinari... he's due for a big game against us. And our bench has to stop the Miller/McGee connection from getting easy points.

And FFS, grab those defensive rebounds!!!

Let's get to these pre-season darlings early and build a big lead again where our starters sit for the fourth, then revenge game against the Warriors. I'd be OK with 2-2, happy with 3-1, ecstatic with 4-0

What's FFS? and I'm okay with 2-2 as long as we beat Warriors and Lakers.

One game at a time. Can't wait. First road game I get to go to. I already promised myself that I would save money to by a ticket for courtside seats whenever the Clipperscome back to Denver next year. I'm guessing that's about $1500+.... I can manage that.

we need to establish bg down low against faried. we cant let koufus shoot 8 for 8 (im talking to u dj). our bench needs to outscore denver's bench. cant let lawson dictate the pace of play

Matt Barnes on NBATV... saying how his twin boys' first Christmas presents opened were Clippers jerseys...

"Nothing else mattered... they just wanted to go and play basketball... saying: "Daddy, we'll open the rest of the presents later"".

But for real, this recent success is growing us a whole new generation of fans.

If we blow them out, we'll be in great position to avenge our loss to gsw

According to the pre-game show on PT, Ty Lawson is sitting this one out with an injury. Looking for our PGs to command this one. Would be nice for Eric to break out of this mini-slump he's been in. (Although I think it's mostly due to not being healthy since falling on his hip.)

If we do blow them out we can rest the starters for GS and have a decent chance of winning GS.

Looks like BG is getting really frustrated with CP. I've noticed him get upset about not getting the lob or pass.

Smith is right. We're shooting too many jumpers. Some of that blame is on CP3. He's looking to pass out on the perimeter way too much.

Hope Paul remembers that on the road he has to shoot more

Too many turnovers. Too many jump shots. We're allowing them too many opportunities to get hands on our rebounds. They look like us right now.

Yup, one turnoever by crawford another by Barnes. Careless. Also, we had aloowed Denver a bout five tries at the basket prior to the Matt Barnes turnover
