CLIPPERS PRACTICE SUNDAY, PREPARE FOR PRESEASON OPENER Eric Patten, Clippers.com 10/6/13 Follow Eric Patten

PLAYA VISTA Back at home for the first practice since training camp opened on Tuesday, the Clippers seemed anxious to see how they looked against an opponent.

"We're excited to be able to play," point guard Chris Paul said Sunday afternoon. "Fighting against each other every day in practice, you're ready to try it out against other teams."

The Clippers open the preseason Monday night in Portland against the Trail Blazers, but after taking the day off Saturday they were back on the practice floor a day later.

"I want to see if they can take the execution from practice onto the floor," Rivers said, looking ahead to game one of the preseason. "We took a day off and it felt like we were starting from scratch again. And that happens when you have a day off, especially your first day off. You come back and tend to be unorganized and that's what we were today."

They spent four days of training camp on the campus of UC San Diego, where they practiced six times in the span. The focus of the team's workouts so far were on the defensive end, something that Rivers is interested in seeing unfold in a game.

"Tomorrow when we have shoot-around we're not going to go over any of the Portland sets," Rivers said. "That's not something you would normally do. I want to see our basic defense play against a team and us not prepare for it, just to see where we are defensively."

For Paul, who is entering his ninth season and third in Los Angeles, the camp stood out as one of the best of his career.

"It was one of the best camps I've been a part of in my nine-year career," Paul said. "I don't know how to explain it. It's a lot of work, a lot of attention to detail but it takes out a lot of the guess work. You know where guys are supposed to be." http://www.nba.com/games/20131007/LACPOR/gameinfo.html

By the way, I spent about 15 minutes trying to get this posted with the constant changes to the title. It wouldn't let me post it the way i used to. The date has to be a certain way. The date has to be at the end. You can't abbreviate "game" to fit everything in. The date has to be behind "game thread". That's too much just to post a simple game thread. lol

I wouldn't be surprised if they came out a little off, considering their trying a new offense. But hopefully they iron out a lot of the kinks during preseason.

Anybody notice what interviewer asked CP3? He's definitely more ripped this summer than ever before in his career. His arms are way more cut up than usual.

It's a glorified scrimmage- Doc said they aren't going to even go over Portland's sets/plays prior. He wants to see how our defense responds without typical levels of preparation, probably to emphasize weaknesses. I'm just looking forward to watching this totally raw version of the team in action. The Lakers beat the Warriors the other day in their first preseason game. Nuff said.

Looks like Portland is dealing with a lot of injuries. May have a few critical players out.

http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index ... y_o_1.html

I'm excited about the new offense and defense. However, it might be possible that we'll struggle in the beginning against teams that haven't made any dramatic changes because they'll be in their comfort zone and, for now, we will be a little out of our comfort zone. All this stuff we're doing might take some time to master.

It's funny how all of us are feeling so deprived of basketball. Seems like this offseason went on forever, but it's finally time for the season to start. I read that our starting lineup will be playing tonight although I'm not sure how many minutes CP3 and Blake are likely to get. Our offense and defense will might lack fluidity tonight, but it's gonna be exciting to finally see all of our guys out on the floor together. It's going to be a great year, guys.

Excited to see the boys back on the court! There are a lot of injuries on the Portland side.. BUT I DON'T CARE, that is why you have back up players. I want to see how the Clipper starters gel together and not watching the other team first.. good idea.. so not so much is in their heads, but they can focus on what they are learning, how to move on the floor with the new plays designed by Rivers and his team. I want to see just how much Jordan has improved. and I am excited to see JJ pretty little shoot.. and how well CP3 leads this team to a CHAMPIONSHIP this year.

BRING ON THE PRESEASON!

The two guys we needed to mesh most in training camp and preseason are out. Dudley meshes well anywhere so not worried about him but very disappointed about Bullock and Redick. Bullock needed training camp more,than anybody and completely missed it.

Interesting that even with JJ out and Doc here, Jamal is getting passed over by Green for starting again. Maybe he wants to see how the presumed second unit functions, but thought he might give Jamal a chance to show what he could do with the starters as well
