@ Clippers-Hornets Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Apr 11 2013 10:31PM Although they've clinched their first division title and set franchise records for victories, the Los Angeles Clippers still have plenty to play for during the final week of the regular season. The Clippers resume their chase for home-court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs when they visit the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. Los Angeles (52-26) added to its lengthy list of accomplishments Wednesday when it cruised past Minnesota 111-95 for its third straight win and franchise-best 31st home victory. While they're guaranteed a top-four seed in the West....

If we keep up the present form this game should be fine.

I wonder if Vasquez has learned to keep his mouth shut after last time?

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. It'd be quite funny if he hasn't but CP and Bled give him another schooling.

Anthony Davis will be out, but Ryan Anderson will likely be starting.

Man, I believe Ryan Anderson is 2nd in the NBA in 3 pointers made. Blake better guard him well. And there is no way Anderson can guard Blake in the post. Punish him inside.

Per rotoworld, http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nba/1613/greivis-vasquez

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Clippers, and Brian Roberts is expected to start in his place.

Vasquez tweaked his ankle against the Lakers on Tuesday and admitted he should not have played on Wednesday, so his absence Friday should have been expected. As a starter, Roberts is averaging 11.7 points, 19.7 assists, 1.3 steals and a triple over three games this season. Vasquez will attempt to play Sunday vs. Dallas, but his ankle is at "less than 80 percent," according to Monty Williams.

No Davis + No Vasquez = More shots for Anderson

True, please Blake never let Anderson shoot a 3. If he takes one, please not let it be wide open.

Yes, we need to crush the Hornets so our starters can rest since we play memphis tomorrow already. B2Bs on the road are tough.

Vasquez isn't playing tonight because he's scared of CP3 locking his ass up again and keeping him scoreless!

True. Hopefully he doesn't foul a 3 point attempt! Yeah, Roberts needs to be respected.

I'm also hoping Robin Lopez does not have another career game. I remember earlier this year, he owned DJ. DJ has been playing better lately so hopefully he shuts him down.

wow stephen jackson just got waived... i wouldn't mind his toughness on our team plus he has experience.

Per rotoworld

Spurs waived G/F Stephen Jackson.

There's more than meets the eye here. The Spurs were counting on Jackson as a long defensive presence on the wing, one that is capable of doing a job on the likes of Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant in the playoffs. He's also an underrated locker-room leader and 3-point shooter off the bench. Jackson must have done something off the court to result in his release. He's eligible to be picked up by any team, but he is not eligible to be on a playoff roster.

With no Davis and no Vasquez tonight, there is literally no reason we should lose this game.

This is totally off subject but WHOA! That is amazing. Even though he hasn't been as good this year, that guy is a legit vet wing. To waive him right before the playoffs, he must have really screwed up. Can't be anything but good for the rest of the West.

Clippers have to put them away early. Fortunately, tomorrow's game will be the back end of the Grizzlies back 2 back as well

I'm almost hoping that the Hornets score their first field goal so those rich bastards sitting courtside can finally sit the **** down.

If i was the coach, I would rip Blake for doing something dumb like going to the 3 point line! Stay at the rim fool!

15 pts, 8 rebs for Lopez. Such an embarrassment

Back to soft and poor effort. Knew it wouldnt last SMH. Destroy a hot Lakers team but cant put away a VERY shorthanded Hornets team. Fobin Lopez again playing like Shaq against us due to DJ's pathetic defense.
