AT Clippers-Cavaliers Preview By MATT BEARDMORE Posted Feb 28 2013 11:57PM The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the top road teams in the NBA. Whether that will help the Pacific Division leaders win their first game in Cleveland in more than a decade remains to be seen. Los Angeles will try to end a 10-game road losing streak in this series on Friday night when the improving Cavs could be without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving for a third consecutive game. With Thursday's 99-91 victory over Central Division-leading Indiana, which was 24-5 at home, the Clippers (42-18 ) improved to 19-12 on the road. Los Angeles is....

I'm not sure what to make of this game. We should wipe the court with these guys, but after what happened last time...

I hope Blake's elbow is alright, especially down the final stretch here.

Dion Waiters has been going off lately and I expect him to continue against us. Last time we lost to them it was mainly because of Dion Waiters hitting 3 after 3 and Andy Verajao being the energizer bunny that he is, good thing he's not playing tonight.

If Irving isn't playing we just need to throw bodies at Waiters and that should shut down their offense. Waiters is a chucker but against us last time they all went in!

CP3 will win this single-handed if he has to (which he probably won't).

You can tell the last 2 losses irked him. I get the feeling we take it by 15+ and the reserves play the 4th.

All we need to do is not let Waiters go off and it's an easy win... unfortunately, this is a tall task thanks to our joke of a perimeter D.

They "may" have been winning without him, but their still 4-9 when he doesn't play.

Yeah... squeaked out a win against the Bulls without Rose or Gibson and beat Toronto at home.

Not exactly shredding contenders.

Defend the 3 (unlike the first time), rebound and we should be okay....

Agree. Cj miles and Waiters can be deadly. If Irving doesn't play that would help alot.

Hyper extended knee. Per a cavs guy on twitter, Irving is wearing a suite while his teammates warmup. He's out for tonight. We better crush them!

So if we win tonight and vs OKC we have the 2 seed! I thought we may never catch them. We gotta get it done, no damn excuses.

Hell yes they can. Denver always gives OKC problems and beat them last time AND it's in Denver as you said. Please help us Denver.

We're 3 losses behind them and they own the tiebreaker. It'll be a couple of weeks before we catch them, if we do.

Only thing the Clips can control are their own games. Just keep winning at our current 8-of-10 pace or better and we'll be good.

Sunday will be big, though.

If no Kyrie then lets sit Blake. This team can still beat the cavs without Blake I feel.

You think I'm joking, but I'm dead serious. Led them to victory in crunch time against Bulls.

Cleepers if we win tonight, they lose.. Then we beat them in LA next week we have the 2 seed by a half game, so no it wont take weeks. Remember H2H counts as a full game in the standings and we are 1.5 back. Only time tiebreaker matters is if we have the same record.

Clippers play the Cavs with Irving and the Grizzlies play at Miami tonight. Who's ready to go 3 games ahead of Memphis?

Yeah, but we're just placeholding until they've played as many games as us. On the evidence of their season, they have over a 70% chance of winning each game. The loss column is the one to watch... because it's the one that counts in April.

Oh I see what you mean. Although it still will be great, especially if we get a streak going and they lose a few.

OKC loss, Memphis loss combined with our win would be amazing.

It could definitely rattle Choke-lahoma city if they see us above them. I'm not convinced of their fortitude.

Let's try to make them nervous, with a little help from the Nugs.

^ Shaun Livingston. I became a fan his rookie year.

Tragically injured. Broke my heart. Glad he's still in the league.

Great, I'm stuck with the homer Cavs announcers. Tired of listening to opposing announcers talk about what you should do right against Blake. When Blake takes a jump shot, they cream their pants. "Good defense! That's what you should force him to do!"

The f***** Cavs analyst whines every time the Clippers make a basket. "You have to do this you have to do that blah blah"
