@ Trail Blazers-Clippers Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Apr 15 2013 5:09PM Following a key victory in the fight for home-court advantage, the Los Angeles Clippers control their own destiny in the final week of the regular season. The Portland Trail Blazers are simply trying to end one of the longest losing streaks in franchise history. The Clippers hope to take another step toward securing home-court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs when they host the sinking Blazers on Tuesday night. Los Angeles (54-26) gained an edge in its potential first-round matchup with Memphis as Chris Paul hit a free throw....

Once again lets attack them hard in the beginning so we can rest for tommorow. Or just win, that'll be nice also.

We should beat them up tonight. Hopefully it's over in the 3rd so Blake and Chris can sit the 4th. Tomorrow could be a 48minute war. Need everybody for Sactown's possible last home game.

100% disagree with you man. That would basically be like getting run out of town bc your big brother old you too. What we need to do is continue changing the culture of clippers basketball in LA. True we don't get as much love but it's bc we've only been good for 2 years. No reason to run away and hide in crappy Sacramento when we have beautiful Southern California finally starting to open their arms to us. Take what you want, not what someone else left behind. LA>SAC

Blazers might put up a tough fight in Portland, but they're just thinking about the draft otherwise. Not too worried about tonight. But like everyone else, scared of the Kings tomorrow, fans will be intense.

Can't let these cocksuckers change our way of life, dude. That's what they want.

I grew up in London during the worst of the IRA bombing campaign. Seemed like every other day there was either a bomb or a bomb scare... pubs, department stores and especially the subway.

The comedian, Eddie Izzard used to do a great bit about the resilience of Londoners in those times... "Oh, there's a bomb on the circle line? (sigh) roll OK then, I suppose I'll just take the district line and change trains at Piccadilly, instead."

Keep the victims in your thoughts, be patient with any extra security, report anything suspicious and most of all, enjoy the game. That's the biggest "f*ck you" we can give to these animals. Let them know that we don't fear ANYONE spineless enough to attack unarmed innocents.

Their starters game-time decision, watch them all play tonight.

Seems like every team brings their A game against us. But I still think we win tonight, tomorrow will be the tough one.

And that's where it should be. Be aware, but don't live in fear due to these swines.

We just signed a ten-year lease extension at Staples a couple of months ago...we're going nowhere. The more I've been reading lately, despite Sacramento's great efforts in securing funding and backers for a new arena, it looks like we're going to see Seattle Supersonics 2.0 come next season; the Board of Governors are voting on the move and sale within the next few days.

As to the game...this might end up being a laugher; it'll be no surprise to see the bench play more and more tonight.

These games scare me more than games vs contenders. This is the type of game we always seem to show up complacent and lazy.

I think technically we have to win tonight and mirror whatever Memphis does tomorrow,,,,or if we blow it,,we need MEM to lose tomorrow and we have to win.

Strange that the game is on TNT and also Primeticket. I thought TNT had exclusivity on the games they air.

Anyway, I'll be watching Ralph & Mike.

Can't take the next 2 games lightly. Neither team, especially the Kings(Cousins) are Clipper supporters and will love to **** on our parade.

Yeah. Well if Billups plays well and the team does well, I won't be upset even though its kind of unfair to Willie. As long as we win and do well I'll be okay with it.

i think it's selfish to start billups, he needs to come off bench like everyone else coming back from injury

Agree it is. But nothing we can do about it. I'll still be cheering for Billups to do well like everyone else!

This. It makes me furious. Hasn't VDN and Billups learned by now after setback after setback? Billups shouldn't be Willie's replacement. It disrupts the chemistry and flow. They should have Willy start regardless because he's been more productive. To be blunt, Billups is old, washed up and broken and should split PG minutes with Bledsoe with Bledsoe playing a little bit more as the backup SG in a small line up to provide energy and defensive intensity. Don't get me wrong. I love Billups but it is what it is. Just like how Kobe might be a borderline 20ppg hobbling scorer that suffers set backs that are not Achilles injury related.

I don't know why we have to put CB in the starter role, Green is white hot, he's around 20-30 of his last 3s.

Billups making poor decisions, put Willie in damn it. Not a fan of how we are playing. Started off amazing but have let Portland stay in it by giving them constant wide open shots.
