Clippers-Heat Preview By JEFF BARTL Posted Feb 07 2013 9:16PM While LeBron James and Dwyane Wade continue to guide the thriving Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Clippers' start-studded roster has been depleted by injuries. That could change Friday night. Los Angeles hopes Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford and Chauncey Billups each will be in the lineup as it continues its eight-game road trip against Miami. The Heat (32-14) have won eight of their last 10 games, with James scoring at least 30 points in each contest during a three-game winning streak. He scored 32 in Wednesday's 114-108 win over Houston, two nights after hitting 13....

Will DJ posterize Bosh? Doesn't it sound weird to say that and believe there is an outside chance it will happen?

ESPN says that Bosh, Wade and Allen missed the Am shoot around as they all have the flu.

MIAMI -- The flu is running through the Miami Heat locker room.

MIAMI HEAT

Even more coverage of the Big Three and their adventures in Miami. Heat Index

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen missed the Heat's morning shootaround with the flu, and each could sit out Friday night's big game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Allen is likely out, and decisions on Wade and Bosh would be made around game time.

Bosh missed Wednesday's game against the Houston Rockets with the flu.

Oh Yay ????

^ They still have a LOT of streaky guys that can kill you from behind the arc on any given night... Miller, Battier, Jones, Chalmers, Lewis... plus LeBron, of course. That's a worry for our team even at full strength.

We have to run them off the line from the very beginning and take our chances with them driving... Hopefully, DJ has a monster night swatting shots.

Good news for the Clips. Source tells me "everybody (Blake, CP, Chauncey, JC) is playing at this point." if no setbacks, it's on vs. Heat

^ Yep, if that stays true at game time, that's must-see TV. Can't wait to see our playoff lineup on the floor. The way EBled's been playing, I'd like Vinny to use CP3 more sparingly.

Any updates on Miami's flu victims? Haven't heard anything, I assume they're going to be out or very limited minutes.

Honestly, why would you guys want wade and bosh to play? We need this win. We're not in the position that we were in around that win streak, most games are must wins now

I'd want us to play them at full strength. So when we win, we can have the confidence and the experience of playing them incase we meet them in the Playoffs, if we get that far. If we beat them 2 times with them having a full squad that will only make our players believe more and theirs worry.

Look at the Spurs and how they kinda played mind games with the Heats, by sitting out their big 3. They almost beat Miami and at the same time not putting their players on the court makes it tougher to feel them out when they play each other again.

The spurs can do that, we're not the spurs. We suck without our stars. Its sad but true. If we were comfortably ahead of everyone in the west, or at least comfortably ahead of GS and memphis, then id say yeah lets play them at full strength and make this a hell of a game. But we need all the help we can get right now for wins, even if it means miami sitting bosh and wade

It's done. Vinny just said Billups, CP3, Griffin and Crawford all returning tonight. Only one on a minutes restriction is Crawford.

He's just mad that his prediction of 43 wins for us was so wrong, it's not even funny, and that he can't pad his columns with his lame old "Clippers suck" jokes.

Explain to me how a biased dumba** gets a job at one of the best sports coverage networks like ESPN? Are his parents really rich or something?

Caron's shot selection is Kobrick-esque so far.

my problem with caron butler is his shot selection. he takes the stupidest and most contested shots ever. he's always in a hurry once he gets the ball. his shot selection kind of reminds me of corey maggette's when he was a clipper.
