Clippers-Spurs Preview Posted Jan 04 2014 1:26AM The last time the Los Angeles Clippers played the San Antonio Spurs, Chris Paul turned in a terrific effort while Tony Parker left early. Sadly, there won't be a rematch between these outstanding point guards. The Clippers begin an extended period of time without Paul on Saturday night when they visit the Spurs. Paul will miss three to five weeks after separating his right shoulder in Friday's 119-112 win at Dallas. He was tripped by Mavericks guard Monta Ellis while dribbling around a screen. He rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while trainers attended....

Tonight is the test. Blake will be tested.

^ Yeah, hopefully he gets another 27 points in another 23-point blowout of the W/C champs and doesn't throw up an airball as his attempt at a game-winner like that choker Curry did.

Very Happy

This game is a major test. I'm hoping Clippers will find a way to defeat the Spurs.

We've had a lot of "test" so far this year. How many have we pass, lol.

I don't know how good we will be tonight but I'm expecting some sloppy offense..

Time for Blake Griffin to shine and time for DC to show what he showed back in NO when chris paul went down back then.

Darren Collison had a break-out stretch when Chris Paul was out before in a New Orleans jersey. Perhaps we will see more of the same in the future?

I hope we go out and compete tonight. The game rests on the shoulders of our backup guards. I think griffin puts in his usual 22-30, DJ pulls down 15+ boards, but who steps up in our time of need? I think Crawford is due for a huge game, if he can go for 25 or just 20 very efficiently, I think we got a good shot of pulling this out.

We might have to take a page out of the Grizzlies Grit N Grind play book. There's no way we beat them by trying to match their ball movement and 3 pts shooting. Defense and banging down low is the only way I see us winning.

No Boris Diaw tonight. He always seems to play well against us. I guess every little helps.

Now if we could get the rest of them out we could win.

I really have no clue. I know our history in SA. I know we have no elite PG. I know our team can be brilliant one night (last night for example) and be garbage the next. I know that SA won't really know what to expect (as neither do we) without CP3 as everyone I am sure prepared as though he will be there an by the time they learned he wasn't all they have is today to make their guesses.

But I honestly thought we would lose 2 road games so we are ahead in my book !

Who's our backup PG? I thought Wayns is injured.

There's going to be some starters with lots of minutes tonight and maybe for a while then.

By the way, the Spurs have allowed 100+ points to the opponents in 13 of the last 17 games. 4 and 3 in the last 7 games....maybe this a trap game for the Spurs. Very Happy

Can not seem to get a good shot vs this guys. At the other end, Spurs getting what they want.

Not a good start.

Spurs are getting easy buckets. We have to stop that to compete in this game.

DJ's D on Splitter is atrocious. How about a hard foul FFS? Or you going to let him dunk/layup in your face all night?

Come on DJ could of just grabbed that block instead of hitting it toward Collision.

Sorry but DJ is no DPOY. He's not even trying to help. Guys like Ben Wallace and Dwight are great defensively because of consistent help D. Jordan has allowed a dunk literally 5 times tonight which he could have easily contested.

None of the Spurs beat you individually, it's all ball movement / screens.

The Spurs are a sizzling 10 of 13 from the field and have 2!!!! offensive rebounds!!

This is not a recipe for success.

This is frustrating. Every offensive play is going 1 on 1, taking contested shots.

While almost all of spurs shots have been uncontested.

Why is Blake leaking on a defensive rebound when there is no other big man in? That is so damn frustrating this team continues to run before securing the ball.

Well I thought we might drop to 6 seed, that was optimistic. Without CP we look like a lotto team. Need Redick bad and maybe a trade no other contender in the NBA including the Heat is so crippled by a loss of their star.

On the offensive end losing cp3 this is expected..

On defensive end however this is just unacceptable, Not defending not rebounding just not doing anything. It's almost like they gave up on this game. Hopefully this becomes more respectable because if this is a sign of things to come this team could end up on the outside of playoff picture by the time CP3 returns..

No help defense on penetrating guards. Both BG and DJ are to blame for this. BG is not paying attention on defense which is making Splitter look immortal.

Tim to watch the NFL and put this one in the rear view mirror. Our new team may take a while to get it going,like a week or more. Guess they wore out last night so figured maybe if they could just play offense they would win. They were wrong.
