Warriors-Clippers Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Oct 31 2013 2:34AM Following an offseason of big moves and championship talk, the Los Angeles Clippers were quickly humbled in their season opener. It doesn't figure to get any easier in their first official home game Thursday night against red-hot Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors. The new-look Clippers (0-1) will try again for their first victory in the....

I know, it's a bit worrying. I am trying to be optimistic and think about a Clips W.

Crawford needs to be given the green light when he's with the 2nd unit. I don't like him being a facilitator. He's a pure scorer first

For those recording the game... set your DVRs to run loooooooong! Jackson is going to foul Blake and DJ every chance he gets. I only hope that they can hit 20 of the 30 FTs they're going to shoot.

If Thompson gets hot and JJ can't contain him, I hope to see Doc give the rookie a shot at chasing him around. "3 and D" is exactly what we need, and they've likely had little chance to scout him.

Defense first. Don't try to get into a scoring battle with these kids.

I agree this can't be a scoring battle if we want to win. The bright side we to deep shooting and a early post game attack from the Lakers so we should be prepared for Curry/Klay/Lee. We win or lose this with defense bigs can't get in foul trouble because the warriors have depth at bigs and every spot.

If there was a game we need Blake and Chris to be aggressive from tap this is it. No hero ball and no indecisiveness just go out there with max effort and ball.

Blake was getting double teamed so much in the post against the lakers, we need Dudley to step up so they can either lay off Blake or pay the price for sagging off on our wings.

And our bench needs to show up big time tonight.

This will be a tough test. They offer most of the same skills the Clippers failed so miserably at denying the Lakers... Fast pace, excellent outside shooting... Except the Warriors are much better than the Lakers at those things...

We will find out how much of an aberration that Laker game really was or if the Clips have very serious work to do.

Very true. It would be good if we had a bit of an easier test after that 1st game shock but this game could well show us a lot about where the team is at.

Yes. Doc needs to duplicate what Phil Jackson did with the lakers when they won back to back in 08-09. Starters run set plays but when the bench come in they need to run and just focus on pushing the ball

if GSW play anything close to the beating they gave the fLAkers, we are sinking ducks. Warriors spanked us last year..... Clippers need to defend the 3 pointer.

THATS IT!!!!! if we do anything right tonight is that.... otherwise....... weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell....

sorry I'm still kicking rocks from opening game, clips broke my spirit already alright alright alright

Found this interesting in LATimes... I kind of like Doc's calmness...

The Lakers outrebounded the Clippers, 52-40, and had 18 offensive rebounds.

But Rivers doesn't think his team has a rebounding problem.

"We were just bad [Tuesday] night. I'm not going to overdo one thing," he said.

"In five games, if we're still struggling on rebounds, then we may have to do something. We may have to change our coverages on defense to get guys closer to the basket, or something. I just don't think that's going to be a problem."

My biggest worry outside of my keys to the game is Iggy being put on CP3. Remember Redick is only 6'4 so Curry can likely guard him just fine. That means Iggy on CP3 is likely to happen at some point and if Blake+shooters don't step up that's going to be a kill shot.

Dudley needs to prove his worth tonight, or else. Bullock is taking over.

I am more excited about this game than about the Lakers game! I had a feeling the Lakers would win that one! We all know Chris doesn't tolerate losing well! He always comes out aggressive....

I hope the Warriors are tired tonight, lol, from all that running and gunning last night against the Lakers. I also hope our monster defense shows up on Halloween tonight and every night from now on!

Well, perhaps they'll be out of sync then by game time, lol. Clips need all the advantages while the team is trying to gel and working on Doc's system.

I like that Blake is faking and driving to the basket, that's what he needs to do, attack off the face-up! If anything, you'll draw fouls
