Clippers-Nets Preview Posted Dec 11 2013 11:47PM Kevin Garnett didn't feel that facing his most recent former team was too emotional because his coach wasn't there. Doc Rivers, now with the Los Angeles Clippers, didn't feel the same. Rivers, Garnett and Paul Pierce continue an unusual three-day stretch of reunions Thursday night when the visiting Clippers meet the Brooklyn Nets. Pierce and Garnett were the leading scorers for Rivers on the 2007-08 Boston Celtics team that captured the NBA title. This stretch of reunions for this trio began Tuesday for Garnett and Pierce with a 104-96 home victory over Boston in their first game against the....

So yesterday Doc went back to his old team, but tonight is another return with PP and KG being the big stars he coached for so long. That's back to back nostalgia for our head coach Wink. Lets have another W for Doc!!!!

I would say expect BKN to be tougher with D Will back than they have been. Lopez usually has great games against us too.

Be nice if we can hit some open 3's for a change.

If the Clippers play an entire game and don't take it easy for the 1st half, like they're so used to doing, then this should be an easy win.

I wonder what the odds are on Jason Kidd spilling another drink tonight.

I'm really hoping DJ does well this game against both Lopez and KG. This will be a tough match up, and he can continue to show his progress with a good showing against one of the better offensive centers in the league.

I'm also looking forward to seeing more of Jackson, I think he can be a defensive stopper against some of the bigger wing players we will come up against.

Hope you're right. I don't see anything easy about this game. They have everybody back and were resting yesterday. They've been winning some games lately and that's without decent performances from PP and KG. You know those two guys are going to be balls out tonight.

I'll be thrilled with a 1point win tonight. I think it's a tough game.

Just our luck that we face them just when they get healthy.

We also played them when 4 of their starters were out so we can't really complain about that.

TNT means radio not TV. I can't stand any more of those announcers and studio idiots. This will be way tougher then last night so guys,stop bricking up 20 3-pointers in the 1st quarter.

We gotta win convincingly tonight to shut up the TNT announcers, mainly Barkley.

Dude, it was a couple weeks ago...

In any event, people will NOT let him forget it, along with the whole mess he created. PS. Look for the Fake Lawrence Frank on Twitter. Pretty funny.

With their current shooting and injury woes I wouldn't bet on it and the odds support that (Clippers -1). Applaud your optimism though.

The only way he can out due himself is if he steps in the court and almost trips CP3 or Blake on a fast break play.

Paul and Blake didn't communicate too well on the switch back there, that kind of scrambled the defense

Ever since chris put the sleeve back on he is been shooting better

It's interesting because it Paul misses those same shots, the conclusion might be that he isn't being aggressive because he would be at zero points. Good start so far.

Need to stay aggressive like this throughout the game.

Those defensive numbers in terms of F% and 3PT% over the last couple of games match what we have been seeing on the court.

Dudley and Willie both looking good tonight, it's like the Twilight Zone

I don't know if you've noticed, but the Nets are just shooting nothing but jumpers.

They have ran Joe in mid-post, I mean he's shooting jumpers, but it is a different look. They have also missed some close shots, but they were well decently contested.

Outside of jumpshots, Lopez is their other option going to the post, and Blatche with action around the basket.

The defense looks good. Lopez had to earn that bucket.
