Magic-Clippers Preview By JOHN KOSIK Posted Jan 05 2014 9:17PM The Los Angeles Clippers have handily beaten some of the NBA's top teams when Chris Paul is on the floor. Now they've showed how poorly they can play against a tough opponent without him. The lowly Orlando Magic don't fit into that category, but they'll be looking for a season sweep of the Clippers on Monday night at Staples Center after having already beaten Los Angeles when Paul was healthy. Paul separated his shoulder Friday in the third quarter of a 119-112 win at Dallas and the team announced Sunday he'll miss up to six....

I hope the Clippers start with a defensive mindset and control this game from the beginning.

Good news is we may have gotten help, as he may not play due to a tweaked ankle. Bad news (as if we need more) is the Magic have beaten the Clippers 11 out the last 13 meetings.

Vucevic is coming back just for us just like Dirk did. -.-

Hopefully Doc having some time to set up how things work without CP should help the teams performance tonight. A win is very important for confidence I reckon, not to mention keeping the Warriors at bay in the standings.

And Aldridge and Anthony Davis. Man, players love to get better right when they happen to play us.

I said Saturday this was a must WIN, just to build the teams CONFIDENCE! That they can win without Chris! It is also a turning point for our DEFENSE! Without Chris the offense won't flourish as usual , so the Clippers will have to depend on defense!

Eric Patten just twittered BG: "Nobody's going to replace Chris. We shouldn't try to replace Chris. We have to all step up and do our own part." Now hopefully it starts tonight with this game.

Can't play until he signs his 10 day contract, which he cannot do until tomorrow. So he won't being playing tonight.

"Suiting'" up and playing are two different things.

It looks like the other site was mis-informed and the 10 day contract can be signed on the 5th of Jan. Also it looks like a player can sign no more then 2 10 day contracts.

Defense Defense Defense.. We need to stop Affalo and Vucevic and can't let them dominate us on the boards..

Even if he plays, what do we think of him? I have not seen much of him.

Afflalo in his last 13 games; .446 FG% and .356 3PT%. Starting to come back down to his LT numbers from the real hot start. Hope he keeps it going against us tonight.

I like the ball movement so far.

Ps: Blake with 2 fouls already.

If Blake hadn't gotten two fouls already, this would be a perfect start.

Great energy and great ball movement.

Too bad on the Blake fouls, really puzzling offensive foul.

Superb start in spite of Blake's 2 fouls. Great ball movement too. Keep it up, Clips!
