Clippers-Hawks Preview By JEFF BARTL Posted Dec 03 2013 5:19PM The Los Angeles Clippers are set to embark on the first of two seven-game road trips over the next two months, and they're clinging to an old clich: one game at a time. The Clippers make their first stop on the trip Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks, who have lost five of six. Los....

I hope the Clippers set the pace and not play down to the Hawks' level. This is very winnable.

That's my worry as well. I'm reminded of the Orlando, and Lakers game. Also, the game against Sacramento where we barely won. The Clippers need to apply pressure early, Paul needs to be the one setting the tone by scoring early as well. We don't have Reddick to hit those threes for us and keep us in the game in the first quarter.

WILLIE! WILLIE! WILLIE!

We need him to fill that solid role he played last season. Gotta have faith.

They lost to the spurs by a game winning jumper. We can't sleep on them at all

I don't see us sleeping on anyone...playing down to anyone...or overlooking anyone on this trip. Because all teams on this trip are kinda sorry-to-mediocre. I think we'll play hard. I believe if we don't win, it's because of the disruptions the injuries have caused.

This could easily be a 7-0 road trip if the Clippers do not get lazy or play down competition.

Already dropped a couple of road games we shouldn't have. This trip could help bring that road record back where it needs to be.

Let's hope so. Tough thing is that after Atlanta we face the dirty bears. For those Clippers fans who are planning on watchng the game against Memphis you will also be treated to a UFC match courtesy of those cheap shot punks in Tennesse.

Hope not but it seems like we usually do when it should be easy and make the games that are tough easier than they should have been.

Really hoping reggie bullock can get some significant time in, he should really be able to dominate Kyle Korver or Lou Williams if they are guarding him.

The problem is many fans believe that because a teams record isn't good, that

somehow they are supposed to just get blown out.

This is the NBA and athletes are getting paid Millions so you can

expect games to be competitive even if the other team isn't

a playoff team.

Miami doesn't blow out every weaker opponent. In fact they

even lose some of those games.

Because any given game shots can fall one way and not

the other way.

With that being said I expect us to go at least 5-2 on this

road trip even with the injuries.

Where the Clips are right now, nothing is going to be easy. Hopefully we can go 5-2 on this trip.

If memory serves me right, we seemed to have a hard time in the ATL the last several years. This isn't going to be any different.

I remember there being a controversial call against Griffin on Horford when we played them at their arena. I can't remember exactly what happened, I just remember we got robbed.

Last Season Blake got a T on the bench in ATL! I was there! The past two seasons the Clippers have lost in ATL! I have been at both! I will not make it tonight....

Isn't Kyle Korver back in the lineup? Isn't he one game from setting the record for consecutive games with atleast 1 3 made? I know wouldn't like records set on his team! I wonder what....

Your memory is air tight. This will not be a cake walk and I really am not looking forward to the brawl coming up too. Who will the Jizzlies hurt now,as they sharpen their elbows.

But no looking ahead to the fight,gotta focus on tonight.

Doc just photobombed Domonique Wilkins and said "D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I don't know how many of you are watching the Hawks broadcasting! They also said try to turn Lob City into Sob City

DUD looks so sloppy and it seems like he out-thinks himself on passes. I haven't seen all that "b-ball iq" yet...

I've been thinking about this for a while. I honestly think we might need to trade DJ. He can't make any fts. Shaq was a better ft shooter and he isn't the best partner to put next to blake. Pau Gasol would be perfect next to blake or someone like that

DJ is breaking down the team defense. This is all on DJ. He lost at least 3 possessions alone by losing the ball. He can't play any worse....

DJ doesn't know how to protect the rim.

Terrible start. DJ was the main reason for that poor start. Dudley was also awful.

idk how we do anything in the playoffs if Griffin and Jordan don't take a huge leap on defense. The team overall needs to improve bu now it seems teams targe them.

I have to admit my patience with Dudley is wearing thin. Hope Barnes gets healthy already so Dudley can sit on the bench until he is 100%.

This game feels like clippers could be winning easily but they are playing down to the hawks.

More DJ than Blake since that is DJ's primary job. He is not doing a satisfactory job as a defensive anchor. Our starting wings have been terrible this game too.

The bench has been better than the starters simce Jamison start playing.

DJ is second in the league in rebounding and 5th in blocks. To me his defense has been solid but his Rebounding the last 2 games have been horrid.
