Clippers-Trail Blazers Preview By MATT BEARDMORE Posted Jan 25 2013 5:09PM It's uncertain when Chris Paul will return. That leaves plenty of questions about how the Los Angeles Clippers are going to improve their offense. Paul is likely to miss a third consecutive game Saturday night when the Pacific Division leaders begin a home-and-home set with the Portland Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden. Paul played last Saturday and Monday after missing Los Angeles' sweep of a three-game trip because of a bruised right kneecap, but the All-Star point guard has not been able to go the last two games. He could also miss Portland's visit....

The guys had better know... if they lose this one, they turn Sunday's game into a dogfight too. We're going to need offensive contributions from Green/Barnes/Bledsoe because their backcourt will score on us.

Blake should feast. Be nice to see him have a great game that results in a win.

Newspaper today made it sound like there will be no CP3 again.

Honestly knowing how our franchise is ALWAYS extremely late on player returns.. I'm not expecting CP3 or Chauncey back for 2 weeks or more which SUCKS ass.

I predict we will win this game by 2 or 3 points in the final seconds. Our offense is not as fluid without CP3 or Billups. Bledsoe has done a decent job but in comparison to CP3 and Billups still has a way to go. I just hope we can stay in the top three in the West until CP3 and/or Billups is back.

No disrespect to Bledsoe its just tough when there is only one healthy PG on on team.

we just need to rebound and not allow 2nd chance opportunities to lillard, aldridge, batum and matthews. ebled needs to guard lillard tight and suffocate him all night. pound the ball inside to BG and kick out to shooters. we need dj to have a big game on both ends in order to make portland into a jump shooting team.

Ugh, the more we win, the more maddening it becomes when we actually lose. I had to step away for a while. LOL

I guess I'll be ready for the game.

BTW, I hope thebteam proves me wrong. But you can't blame me for not having any confidence in this game. This losing streak is bad, bad, bad and our leader is still absent.

not to sound like a thunder fan, but the beauty of OKC is that their core is under 24, where as ours is much oldre. therefore, they are less prone to injury and will be a playoff team for the next decade. we just have to keep pace and make sure we keep bringerng in young guys as well

We really need a win today. I'm thinking it'll be an ugly one, but if this team plays like they want it, we will win.

Actually OKC's main core isn't "much younger". Griffin is 23, Bledsoe is 23 (as of less than two weeks ago), DJ is 24, CP3 is 27. Durant is 24, Westbrook is 24 and Ibaka is 23.

Our roles players are old (like most contending teams) but our core is young and should remain elite for a good 5-7 years at least. In other words we have a perfect mix of youth and experience. The main issue is that half of our team is made out of glass. The difference between us being healthy or not can easily be the difference between NBA championship and 1st or 2nd round exit.

LA will own BG with his length and lillard is going to run through ebled, just being real

Eh not sure about that. Depends on how aggressive they are. Lilliard hasn't faced a defensive monster like Bledsoe yet from the PG spot. Last time they played for stretches and Bledsoe really got into him and threw him off (CP3 got torched). Now he's going to have to deal with Bledsoe for 30+ minutes if he can stay out of foul trouble. As for Blake vs Aldridge... Blake has owned him bad H2H in his career and won't have any problems at all killing him if he's aggressive in the paint all night.

If we hold Batum under 25, I think we have a shot at this.

Willie Green is a dummy for attempting that, thank God he's already going to the bench with 2. Then again that was NOT a charge.

you got a 6'9 player guarding DJ, you got to be able to get the ball to him and you got to give the ball to him in the post so he can back that little man down.

I rreally like the defensive effort and i like how Vinny said he put more offensive sets since Chris is gone. I like the initiative

Idiotic defense starting already. Now we give them two wide open midrange jumpers with nobody within 10 feet? I spoke too soon on Green.. he's getting fired up.

Remember the Cavs game where we lost two years ago and we let him drop 38 and 16 on us or w/e? Not a good game plan bro.

Does anyone else cringe when Blake ends up with a fadeaway jumper after making an attacking move? We all know that a fadeaway jumper is his emergency move when a defender does a good job staying in front of him.

Willie's great, should've got 2 fts on that break. Offensive foul call was bullsht. And Butler has to do something else besides shoot.

We're a better team this year than we were two years ago.

That's debatable without CP3 and Billups. On paper and talent wise yes... but we have scored an average of 79 points on 36 percent shooting in 2 of our last 3 games.

DJ wow! Misses the easiest fu**ing shot of his life which leads to a fastbreak 3. I'm starting to dislike this guy a lot.

Of course DJ misses a bunny cause it's not a dunk.

BG is by far the best passer in the starting unit.
