Clippers Vs. Grizzlies Game Preview By MATT BEARDMORE Posted Jan 13 2013 4:06PM The Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Clippers probably don't want to think much about their last game. They have much better memories of their last trip to Memphis. Los Angeles opens a road-heavy portion of its schedule on Monday night in its first game at FedExForum since a series-clinching victory last postseason. Trying to extend their franchise-record 13-game home winning streak, the Clippers (28-9) were outscored 29-18 in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 104-101 loss to Orlando, which had dropped 10 straight. Los Angeles took care of the ball with just nine turnovers, but it....

We never lose just 1 in a row and the Grizzlies will be hungry for vengeance. This is a loss.

Nah... close game all the way and the chances are 50/50 that Rudy bails us out with a couple of bricks down the stretch Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04

Memphis has lost their consistency in the last month or so, this is one we can walk in and steal the W. Rivalry type game for sure, but not like the Clips aren't hungry to make up for the Orlando loss either much like the bombshell Memphis dropped at Dallas. Definitely must-watch TV tomorrow night! Lakers and us were hungry for a W in our last matchup, rivalry atmosphere, and we gutted out the win, we can do this again!

Could go either way. Grizzlies just got embarrassed by Dallas.

stop overrating the grizzlies. its funny that everyone, especially the media is thinking they are such a force. they arent. they are a gritty, tough team, especially with their frontline. but its a huge dropoff after gay, randolph and gasol. yeah it will be a hard fought game, but the clips overall talent is going to be too much for the grizzlies. they havent been playing well either. they dont have the luxury of a deep bench like we do. oh and vdn did coach circles around hollins. as long as the energy and focus is there, we will take it.

I wouldn't go that far. The Grizzlies are a very good team. Moreso at home. It won't be an easy victory thats for sure. They are an average offensive team but defensively they are the 2nd best in the nba.

They would be better if they moved Rudy Gay for a player that fit them more though. Gay is a terrible fit there and overpaid. He makes the offense even worst with his inefficient scoring, ball dominance, and mediocre playmaking ability.

^ they lost a lot when mayo left. he gave them the spark off the bench. they are tough, no doubt. i just hope the reffing doesnt allow zbo to literally beat up blake with dirty cheap shots. its not griffins fault that zbo is slow and has to resort to dirty s*** to stop bg. i agree with them moving gay. but then again, he has a joe johnson type of deal, which will make him hard to trade

Lot of Debby Downers already after one loss,,,we can win, we can lose. I would bet more on the former as long as we can keep up with arguably one of the dirtiest teams in the league. W or L, I just want us to come out of this unscathed. If the officiating doesn't give those home-town clowns the edge, we win.

Anyone know if we'll wear the blue unis in this game? Or in this road trip for that matter? We haven't worn that beauty since November, I think.

That's what I been wondering as well that I was tempted to created a thread about it. Last and only time I seen it was on the first Lakers game...

No pondexter either...all I know is the clippers better bring it tomorrow to wash away the sour taste from the magic game. The road only gets tougher.

eventhough im a clips fan, i feel for rudy gay.going back to the topic, rudy gay not being in their lineup helps. hes a match-up problem for us. they lose a lot, even if he is at times a black hole on offense. i hope the clips come out blasting and dont let the grizzlies get any rhythm.

CP3 very doubtful for tonight, from Brad Turner. With Gay out, we're still at a disadvantage w/o our MVP. Least Bledsoe will get the minutes he deserves, probably will share ball-handling duties with Crawford.

Lol supposedly CP3 wasn't injured now it's "Very doubtful" he plays? Not a good sign AT ALL. Bright side of this is Bledsoe normally murders the Grizzlies and will get to shine.

If Bledsoe goes off for a near triple double his trade value will double too which is a bonus. He NEEDS to have a good game.

Have confidence that Bledsoe willbe aggressive and give the team a nice boost. Blake Griffin is still a beast and its times like these he has to go old school and power us to a win.

That's how valuable Bledsoe in our team,Clippers need to keep him at all cost CP3"s knee cannot play all season long.

I wouldn't think the FO would say it is a game time decision if this were a season ending injury. He is probably really sore and no sense getting hit by these thugs in Memphis. You know their style, they are like a pack of dogs (smell like one too), go after the wounded first and they would be on CP3 like white on an aspirin.

that is my story and I am sticking with it

Pretty sure he just bruised his knee and it's sore as hell. Highly doubt there's any real damage there, few days rest and he'll be fine.

Honestly I'm not even fretting about CP3. It will give Bledsoe a chance to get some real burn because Vinny has no choice but to play him 25+ minutes a game now. This will boost our team long term by getting his confidence going AND increase his trade value.

Wow, what's up with the empty seats? Rivalry game and it looks like a game that involves two lottery teams. Move this team to Seattle.
