Clippers Vs. Warriors Game Preview By ALAN FERGUSON Posted Jan 02 2013 1:56AM The first day of 2013 brought a different result for the Los Angeles Clippers than the final month of 2012, and the next several days in this new year might not be much easier. After the franchise's longest win streak came to an end, the Clippers continue their challenging stretch with Wednesday night's visit to the Golden State Warriors, the first of two matchups in four days between the top two teams in the Pacific Division. The Clippers (25-7) became one of three NBA teams all-time to go 16-0 in any month....

If we win tomorrow, all is forgiven. This is the win I've been looking for so far this season.

Blake holds the key to this game for us. Simply put, he needs to play more aggressive than he has the last two games

We have to go nuts out to win this. It'll be a great bounce back game, and it'll take some pressure off Saturday's game.

Not worried about Saturday's game, think we win that one, even if we're on a 2 games losing streak.

We can't possibly be on a 2-game skid by Saturday... it's either a win streak after beating the lakers, or at worst, a 3-game skid after tonight, GSW and LAL.

Tomorrow's game comes down to our stars. Blake and CP cannot get outplayed by Lee and Curry. This is what happened last time we played them and we obviously lost.

Also, our bench has to outplay their bench. Landry and Jack killed us.

Agreed. Blake needs to be active on the offense and hustle on D without fouling. He's been really disappointing in these past few.

No worries, my friend. I dried out early... just "rehydrating" now.

Happy new year, dude.

Yeah, Vinny did time in the F.O. and as an assistant.

Mark Jackson talked a lot of sh!t for ESPN... his team looks good right now, but my money says they're a first-round wonder and then "goodnight".

TJ Siemers just came out with a scathing report article about the game tonight, irritated me. I can't tell if he likes or dislikes the team but he pretty much called our clips pretenders.

hopefully the calls go both ways, cuz lee is a dirty player. hes talented but he often gets away with cheap shots. the last two games griffin struggled because he was getting ticky tack fouls called on him, while receiving no calls when he got hammered. millsap and faried got away with grabbing and hammering blake, which impacted griffin in not being able to get into a rhythm.

First off I would like to state that I don't think this team was tired physically. I didn't see anything to indicate such. They were shooting early shots, and running when they should have slowed it down. Mentally maybe, but physically, no. Not IMO.

Secondly I would like to say I am not going to bash VDN, even though i could, but I think he is doing his best, and he has shown growth, and I hope he continues to do so. The critiques of his rotations have already been stated, but no matter how deep people keep saying we are, we only have 1.5 pgs in cp3 and eb12. So if we play them together then we would have to do something out of the box, which at this point I don't think Vinny is ready to do. Not that it would be a bad thing but w/e.

I will state that the lack of movement on offense is disturbing with so many capable and willing passers on this team.

The negatives of this game beyond the obvious, not shooting well, I saw bad defensive rotations, ie; doubling on adre miller beyond the 3pt line. Silly passes, and Bledsoe has been doing some really headscratching stuff lately.

One thing I am tired of seeing is JCraw coming off a screen, catching the pass, and dribbling around the ft line, and launching a shot in the defenders face. Dude, if your defended well, pass the ball or call for a screen.

Third, Blake and Cp3 need to be able to take over games when things are not clicking with the rest of the team.

I would give this team an A for energy, and an F on awareness. I don't know what Blake was thinking about, but I really didn't like his dissapearing act in this game.

I gonna give vinny the benefit of the doubt, that he will figure out that, the second unit, needs more set plays than the starters.

Side note: I am tired of hearing commentators talk about how physical we play, or we play bully ball. Did no one see What Memphis did to us in the playoffs? We are just responding to the physical play that we get. Our coach is not the one say to hard foul the other teams star players. It's like "Oh they don't flop now so...let me see...Oh, they play bully ball. They push and hold and reach. What team doesn't? You know it's a problem when the raptors, and the suns think they can get physical with you.

Hell If we are gonna lose like this, Blake or Dj(ha) might as well get a flagrant for something real. F a Poster.

unfortunately we arent the flakers. we answer the physical play and we get fouls called on us. faried was grabbing griffin blatantly and nothing was called. brewer kept pulling crawford and nothing was called. however, gallinari would flail like a b***h and he would get the call. by the way, eventhough dj played well, he missed a s***load of ft's. we need him to improve asap. if he wants touches and more minutes, it is imperative he makes at least 50 percetn of his ft's

I agree with everything you say except, Dj's fts. It's clearly a mental thing. He has some mechanical problems but hey I'm just a fan so no sense in discussing that. In a game like this when you need to slow the game down and DJ(I'm guessing) was probably at or above 50% on fgs, that should warrant him being in the game. IMO this goes deeper than just Vinny not trusting him at the line. This is on Sterling, putting Vinny in a survival mode type of coaching. FTs are only one aspect of the game, and after the last game, Dj deserved to play more minutes in this one. He wasn't going to win this game for us though. It was just bad strategy, and I can't believe these guys, were trying to run so much in the Altitude.

Loved this quote from DJ!

"We lost tonight," DeAndre Jordan said. "We're going to win tomorrow."

Honestly a part of me is glad the streak ended now so the target on our back is reduced and the guys can renew the hunger and smack GS around. If Denver didn't end it, GS probably would have but now the Clippers can focus on revenge against the Warriors who have been a thorn in our side.

If the loss against Denver woke us up and helps us beat the GSW then that would be great.

I was 99% certain our streak would break this week though a bit disappointing it happened on our first game Sad Gotta keep pace with OKC and SAS, let's get the W against GSW and the Fakers and go 3-1 this week and I'll be happy.

No butler tonight out with personal reasons (hope he and his family are ok) - everyone needs to step up to make up for the loss of one of our best shooters.

This game just became double important with not only the cushion in the division but to take league leading record back.

Hell yea good job Nets. BTW Caron out tonight. Hate to say it but watch how much better we play. Now we just need Hill and Billups back and Green and Butler can rest all year and we would be a significantly better team.

What? We just lost a shooter and now the bench won't be as deep. lol

We play 4 games in 5 nights and you don't think Butler will be missed?
