Jazz-Clippers Preview Vs. By JORDAN GARRETSON Posted Feb 22 2013 3:09PM After rolling into the All-Star break, the Los Angeles Clippers struggled mightily in their first contest after it. Saturday night's home game against Utah not only provides a chance to bounce back, but also an opportunity for their first season sweep over the Jazz in 34 years. The Clippers went into the break with four straight wins by an average of 16.2 points while shooting 52.7 percent from the floor. Then they were completely dismantled on both ends of the floor in a 116-90 home loss to San Antonio on Thursday, their largest margin of....

Yes we will play a lot better. We need to jump on the jazz early. Set the tone for the game.

A good W is the best way to get the Spurs loss out of the system, as it were.

From what I read they really took a look at themselves as a team. They should really play hard tonight!

I'm not trying to be a jerk but talk is cheap. Outside of one or two times we have ALWAYS lost in streaks this year. Every time the guys supposedly get depressed and have an amazing practice after a loss. Yet that doesn't stop them from losing 3-4 in a row regularly. Point is... I know their heart is in the right place and I DO feel they will win since it's at home. If they really want to make a statement and boost morale they will win by 30 tonight. A 5 point win just won't feel very good after the beatdown two nights ago.

I just hope the chemistry isn't ruined by trade drama

a win is a win man. especially since we arent facing the bobcats. utah always brings it against us. and idk what you mean that we lost 3-4 in a row regularly. if that were the case we would not be 39-18.

Bull go look at our losses this year. Always in streaks. I just think a 5 point win after a 26 point loss won't have the same mental effect on morale. They need to dominate tonight to prove to themselves they can bounce back dominantly.

I predict we will be hot outta the gate like two home games ago v Houston. Maybe not 46 pts in the quarter hot but definitely our starting unit will be aggressive and focused. CP3 never has two bad games in a row. Ever. San Antonio is a special team (1-2 versus us remember). Utah's good but they're not the Spurs. Plus we'll be playing angry. You wouldn't like us when we're angry. Excited to join the 40 wins club

unfortunately it is a byproduct of the long season. while annoying, the fact is that those streaks havent carried on to affect the clippers record. 39-18 isnt shabby. if those streaks of losses were comprised of bottom dwelling teams, then id be concerned. but most are not. i personally see us beating utah by at least 15, but if we only win by 10 or less, i wont be bummed about it. id rather see our best basketball versus indiana and okc. lets say we only beat utah by 5 and charlotte by 10 or more coasting and then we raise our level to beat indiana and okc. im sure you and everyone else on here would take that. i know i would

The scoreline is irrelevant.

If we get back in transition, do a reasonably good job on the boards and close out on shooters, we'll be fine... those are all achieved with superior effort.

Bring the energy and we've got this one.

Agreed. I would take that. I'd be happy with all W's.

Ugh...still have an hour to go. The Jazz always plays us tough but I'm anxious to see our team bounce back!

Please, let's not make this another typical losing streak. Utah is a good team (albeit not as good on the road) and the Clippers need to have supreme focus here. Another completely lazy, effortless performance tonight would be inexcusable.

Next step for DJ: learn how to pass when posting up. His post moves have improved, but he's become predictable that the defender will just have a field day of stripping him.

Good Defense!! We missing shots but at least they are good looks and not forced up garbage

Players seem more motivated and have more energy which is good. Now the key is retaining this hunger and fight for the last 25 games and if they do they will be alright. If not.. we have Memphis right on our heels now.

We're still looking a little bit out-of-sync, but overall, MUCH better than the Spurs massacre so far.

Fun fact: Millsap has scored all of the Jazz's points so far.

Blake went from 52% to 66% from the FT thats a great improvement now we needs DJ to step up

Griffin's D isn't bad.. Millsap is just getting lucky as hell.

Seriously, 13 points already? And he literally hasn't recorded any stat but points. This reminds me of the game against the Pelicans when Robin Lopez went off in the first and then was ice cold the rest of the game. I'm thinking Millsap will have a similar fate.

Wow... 11 point lead down to what 4? Bunch of crappy, lazy plays. Barnes and Odom are fu**ing idiots when it comes to stupid fouls that don't stop a shot. They allow a ton of And 1's.

Aaaaaaand back to the same old shitty, unprepared basketball. This is why we always lose in streaks. PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES, CLIPPERS!

Crawford yelled at Odom for completely ignoring him on the cut. Odom has been GARBAGE.

What does Lamar offer exactly? Can't score. Too small to defend centers. What is it?

Please just cut Lamar. We had a decent lead tonight until he started stinking up the court. He's been completely and utterly useless for most of the season.

This bench was extremely overrated and clearly were just playing out of their minds to start the year.

The thing I respect about Pop is that when players make dumb decisions he takes them out. Vinny never keeps in players that play good and always has to stick to his rotations. Why?

We should do that. Our next game is on Tuesday! Lots of time to rest.

Vinny... you don't need to sit your starters for 5+ minutes every time dude. It's time to bring some starters back.
