Pacers-Clippers Preview

By ELI KABERON Posted Nov 30 2013 3:32PM

The Los Angeles Clippers survived without Chris Paul in their last game and hope their All-Star point guard can return against the NBA's best defense.

After sitting out Friday because of a strained hamstring, Paul is hoping he can play Sunday when the Clippers host the league-leading Indiana Pacers.

"I want to play," Paul said after missing a 104-98 overtime victory against Sacramento. "If I can play, I will. If not, I'll rest it."

He leads the NBA with a career-best 12.2 assists per game to go along with 19.0 points and 2.4 steals. With Paul at the helm, Los Angeles (12-5) is second in the league with a 106.8 scoring average this season. The Clippers have been even better at home, going 8-1 at Staples Center while scoring 112.4 per game.

Paul and his teammates are in for a challenge against the Pacers (15-1), who are allowing the fewest points (85.6) and assists (15.5) per game in the league and have limited opponents to 38.7 percent shooting - also an NBA best.

Friday's victory improved Los Angeles to 10-9 in games without Paul since he was acquired in a trade prior to the 2011-12 season.

If Paul can't go, the Clippers will again look to Jamal Crawford for a spark. The team's sixth man scored a season-high 31 points against the Kings, shooting 12 of 22 from the field, while also dishing out 11 assists. He saved his best for overtime, scoring or assisting on eight of the team's 10 points in the extra period.

"It's weird because I'm 33 but I feel like I'm getting better," said Crawford. "I'm learning more, I have a great coach and great teammates. I'll continue to get better."

The Pacers will offer a much tougher test coming off one of their best defensive efforts of the season. Indiana won its sixth straight with a 93-73 victory over Washington on Friday that matched a season low for points allowed.

"I knew we would be a good team," coach Frank Vogel said. "They are driven and hungry. We're off to a good start."

The start is not only good, its the best in franchise history.

In addition to their lockdown defense, the Pacers also have a variety of scoring options that could cause fits for Los Angeles, which has struggled defensively with 101.6 points allowed per game. Indiana has five players averaging in double figures.

Lance Stephenson was the catalyst against the Wizards, finishing with seven points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Paul George scored 23 points, while both Roy Hibbert and George Hill chipped in with 13.

"I know my teammates can hit shots," Stephenson said. "I just try to create and get them open. It's a blessing to have a team that can knock down shots."

The Pacers, who are 6-1 away from home, will be kicking off a five-game trip that features four matchups against some of the best teams in the Western Conference. Indiana will also face Portland, San Antonio and Oklahoma City on the trip.

Indiana dropped seven of its first 11 road games against the West last season before winning the last four, including a 109-106 victory over the Clippers on April 1.

"(The Washington game) we needed to win to prepare for our West Coast trip," said George, a California native. "The next couple of weeks will be tough. We will have to be ready mentally and physically."

For some reason, the title of this thread on the home page reads:

Clippers vs. Kings

I corrected it and it reads fine in the game day forum but it never changed on the home page. Just a heads up...

I think we will win this game. I think we have an advantage over Non shooting centers like hibbert. DJ can stay at home and be the D Anchor in the post he is meant to be.

9 blocks yesterday, but he would have has probably 12-13 if he didn't have to stick cousins at 15ft +.

Is Reddick playing? Interestingly enough Cousins fouled BG hard and they exchanged handshakes,

Hibbert is a handfull

A friend and cognoscente predicts Pacers over Clipps in the finals. We played like a machine against GSW. If CP is plays will he be able to stop their PG? Where is Bledsoe?

Being from Indianapolis if we can't win then Pacers Rule but Indy has oft been called Naptown because everyone is asleep. Tomorrow I hope so.

^No he needs to take an MRI to see what injury he has first and the earliest he can do that is on Monday. CP3 is questionable.

For a bit of nostalgia, here's my favorite Griffin performance... his 47-point career-high game against the Pacers in his rookie year. Hardly any dunks, but so many sweet bank shots, nifty layups, and hustle plays around the rim.

I wouldn't be surprised if CP3 suited up, but if he doesn't it won't be pretty. We'd be far and wide outmatched on the wing. Without Chris we'll need Blake to dominate by a landslide margin and/or for Crawford to go off again. We'll see how things go

I think Chris will suit up. Real shame about JJ, we will need Dudley to have a good shooting game to make up for it.

we're in a bad spot. Paul may come back today, but will he be 100%? Also, with Redick out that puts enormous pressure on Griffin to shoulder the scoring load. Paul has been a reluctant scorer this year, so even if he does decide to go on one of his 30 point performances you kind of don't want him to do it so soon after returning from an injury. of course if Dudley has a major contribution tonight and the other ancillary players also chip in then we can possibly win...but I find that very unlikely.

Well I can can say is, they are due for a loss so why not us and why not today?

Even though nursing a massive hangover from yesterday's debacle for my Cardinal and Gold team,I will represent today. But now I am confused,because UCLA claims to own LA, but the Fakers claim to own LA. Guess they need to duke it out with each other.

FIGHT ON

I'm not gonna make any predictions but our team is capable of exploding on our home court. Even if Redick isn't playing and Paul isn't 100%, we can still play well if everyone else steps up. I hope they do.

Without CP3 and Redick we won't have a fighting chance. We are also missing Barnes. If CP3 plays we can will but it will be tough without Redick and Barnes. I have feeling how our defense holds will be key.

Blake hasn't had to shoulder the load very much this season, but we know he's capable of doing it. Wonder if he can against the best defensive team in the league. Should be a good one.

He got killed by george 3 times and 2 back to back on the same play(just like in sac). Silly turnover pass to dJ.

Bullock is all over Paul George. Dudley got a lucky foul call on a 3pt shot and an ugly layup that clanked around and luckily went in.
