Clippers-Trail Blazers Preview Posted Dec 26 2013 2:46AM The Portland Trail Blazers are tied for the league's best record, and they'll be tested severely as 2013 comes to an end. Three of the Trail Blazers' final four contests in the calendar year are against division leaders, beginning with Thursday night's visit by a Los Angeles Clippers team that could be in a bad mood. Portland (23-5) is only 10 wins shy of its total from last season as one of the league's biggest surprises. The Trail Blazers, who can notch their best 29-game start since going 26-3 in 1990-91, are led by the one-two....

Clippers gotta play angry and take out the frustration on the Blazers. They have 4 days rest, we played two extra games since both teams played 5 days ago. Splitting this back to back would be sweet.

I'm not feeling good about his name. We need to win if we want to remain ahead in standings. Houston won.

Well, we know atleast 2 of our players should be pissed about last nights game, and luckily they are our 2 best players. I'm looking for monster games from both CP and BG.

Team should play angry but yet composed. Doc can't let these guys lose concentration when they get called for fouls tonight more than any other night. Clips going to be edgy but with the right focus they should be able to grab this game. Defense and rebounding are key need team effort and some scoring from Dudley would help.

Probably get screwed again, but at least we can make some money to soften the blow...

Take the over on how many times Chuck says "Da Clippas is sof' as tissue paper" no matter what the line says!

The match up that worries me the most is Batum and Dudley. Other than that we are fairly well matched, although their bench might be better.

Repped High Quality Post

Dudley needs to learn from Redick, that if you're not athletic, he gotta learn how to take charges

If we lose tonight, watch the doubters pile on...Tonight is a must win, something I never say during regular season. We need this as a team, but also so the media doesn't get into an anti-Clipper mindset.

Yesterday was a great team game. I'm not gonna doubt my Clippers one second, Crawford had a good shot, considering how bad refs wanted us to lose, I'm surprised we were so close.

I think Clippers come with a chip on their shoulders, specifically CP n BG.

It'll be a tough matchup between CP n Dame also BG n LA.

Looking forward to it, should be good.

Also it seems we are always playing on the road of a b2b when we play on TNT.

This needs to be a statement game to the League. I feel when we play at our potential

there is no one who can hang with our fire power.

We did it against the Spurs, and we need to embarrass the TrailBlazers.

Time to play with what we call in boxing "Bad intentions". Which just means

your not playing around. Have to go in for the kill early and stay on top of them.

Just my opinion.

Maybe we should scrap the "guess the score" game in favor of a "guess which Clipper gets bogusly ejected" game.

I hope the Clippers get to play 5-on-5 basketball tonight. The Blazers are a good team, but Clippers are better. Clippers probably have more motivation to win this game especially after what happened last night with the Warriors. At least Blake is relatively well-rested for this game --- I hope he continues his beast mode.

@EricPatten: Blake's 2nd technical was rescinded after league review. Two games, two #Clippers players whose ejections were ruled inaccurate a day later

^^^^^^ THAT SAYS ALOT!!!!!!!! There is obviously some agenda out on the Clippers

You think deep down, the T Blazers are just a tiny bit nervous how we're gonna come out against them after last night's game?

Lets hope the refs feel embarrassed by these 2 games and start over compensating and let the Clips get away with more than usual. That way they would end up treating us like any other team if you get my logic.

Dreamer. My guess, they are worse tonight to show us who is boss. They will let the Snailblazers run all over us,you watch.

I am tempted to not watch because I don't want to stroke out yelling at the TV,because I understand the people on the other end of the picture can't hear us at home.

Can someone tell me what the Anal-ists said on TNT about the techs last night? I was going to watch it but got a business call seconds after.

Thanks in advance.

Overall ref crew is better then the Bill Kennedy crew last night. Not by much though. Sad

I think they all sort of agreed Blake got punked but the deal was BigMouthChuck says Blake is getting picked on and he needs to haul off and clobber someone. They did not address the rest of the horrible officiating,just the deal with Blake.

I get the impression had the league not come out and say the refs erred (not effing up the game) these guyss would have blamed Blake for whining.

The first quarter is going to determine just how much last nights game drained this team emotionally.. This game is going to be a very hard game to pull through with a W but hopefully we get it donee

I saw Harden flop his way to a foul today.

Can someone tell me how is it that Harden gets more protected then BG?

Is it because he came out of the Thunder organization?

It's like Blake has to play on egg shells. I swear I start to worry that if BG is even REMOTELY physical or sets a great screen, a whistle could blow at any moment.
