Clippers Vs. Wizards Game Preview By ALAN FERGUSON Posted Jan 19 2013 2:20AM While they weren't completely satisfied with their latest performance, the Los Angeles Clippers managed to win again in spite of Chris Paul's absence. The Clippers would love to have their All-Star point guard back for their brief return home, a matchup with the suddenly surging Washington Wizards on Saturday night. Paul has missed the past three games with a bruised right kneecap, but Los Angeles (31-9) has won all of those contests by an average of 15.7 points. The Clippers committed 18 turnovers for the second consecutive game Thursday in Minnesota but....

Trap game. CP3 should rest this one out, Blake and Jamal usually feast at home. The Wiz have only won 1 road game all season and coming off 2nd on b2b from Denver, that place takes its toll on visiting teams.

Wowzers can't wait for Mon (FYI to all its a 1pm tipoff) and Tuesday. The Clips get these next three, conceivably can not only take over best record but be 9 (that's right) 9 games over the Warriors. Sucks on that you obnoxious Golden State @ssholes

Another Staples doubleheader tomorrow...the Kings have their home opener at noon on NBC, where they're unveiling their championship banner. Let's hope their good luck rubs-off on us.

The Wizards winning at Denver might be the best thing that could have happened as far as the Clippers getting up for tomorrow.

The wiz won in the altitude, great for us... Okc plays a desperate Denver team in Denver on Sunday.

its definately a trap game. now that john wall is back, they are a dangerous team that the clips cant overlook. they do have some talent. again, if the clips come out with focus, energy and with purpose, we will beat them. but im not saying it will be easy.

The Wizards have some nice players- obviously Wall is back. They also have Nene, Beal who is hitting 3's like crazy recently, and Okafor is tough as well. Just looking at their last 5 games, the Wiz have beaten the likes of OKC, Hawks & of course the Nuggets. Very dangerous game.

I hate these games,,it's always the sucky teams that give us fits because they all have a star that is always injured or out until the day they play us, and those stars go nuts.

I'm not as worried about tonight's game as Monday's up in Oakland. At least this one is an evening matchup... the guys should have no problem getting 'up' for a Saturday night in Staples. But those matinees seem to give us fits.

All it'll pick up is a "swish" sound... and maybe the occasional crack of an ankle breaking.

Need to bring focus and energy early. This Wizard team is on a hot streak. 4 wins in the last 5 games vs OKC, Orl, Atl, and Den. Their only loss is vs Sac by 1 point.

The one thing that hurt us all season is teams with multiple perimeter players going off. Irving & Waiters, Curry & Klay, Durant & Westbrook, Lawson & Gallo, Afflalo and Redick, Vasquez & Anderson.

Wizards have Crawford, Beal, and Wall that are capable of going off. They played last night so if we can just jump on them from the start, I think we'll be good.

Is CP3 playing?

Should be interesting CP3 vs Wall or if CP3 is still out Bledsoe vs his old teammate Wall. I hope Bledsoe dominates John Wall if CP3 is still out. Would be nice to see.

Btw the Wizards have won 4 of their last 5 games. lol

I wouldn't underestimate them even after a road game at Denver. Were the best team at losing in trap games after all. wink

I wouldn't be surprised if we blew them out like crazy but I wouldn't be surprised to see them hang close.

I remember a game they faced off in their rookie year.

Wall: 25 pts, 7 reb, 8 ast

Bled: 23 pts, 8 reb, 6 ast

The difference?

Wall played 42 minutes, Bledsoe played 21.

Watching the warriors and Pelicans. Pelicans up by 2 points and can virtually end the game with another basket. Gordon turns it over and he fouls. Jack makes 2 points and tied. Next possession, he runs out the clock without making a pass and bricks a 15 ft'er. Now the warriors lead with by 3 points with 22 seconds left. Gordon still one of the worst late game players.

Just watching the Bulls v Griz, and remebering when Clips played Mem, and Ralph was talking abt rumors of trading Gay, they said they had offer for Beal. I won't say Gay sucks, but he's well over rated and I think we've seen his ceiling. Ralph said no way, I say they should jump at it. Game on

Sam Cassell is on the wrong bench. Can we trade Howard Eisley for him?

I don't like the feel of this game already. Feels like the Cavs and Magic games.

Unfortunately, the Lakers' shittiness was more contagious than our awesomeness.

Not complaining, but it's always surprising when Vinny goes almost the entire 1st without subbing.

Jamal has to reward Barnes. 2nd time he had a 2-1 fast break and just took it himself

Paul, Crawford, Barnes, Hill, & Blake is a pretty versatile line. It's "small," but fast and athletic.

Seriously, Clipper fans need to show more hostility at Staples so that these random Faker fans are discouraged to wear Faker jerseys if they want to attend Clipper games.
