I see us going 6-1 on the upcoming trip

With the one loss coming to.............

DETROIT

With amazing victories in back to back games against the Knicks & Pacers I see the Detroit as a let down game

Bold prediction? Perhaps, we shall see

no way we win in Indiana, and i think we got a 60% chance to win in New York. I think Toronto will be a tough game as well*.

*I really like Amir Johnson.

I'd love to go 5-2. A loss to Indiana seems imminent seeing how it's on the 2nd night of a back to back. Toronto will be a tough game also.

Depending on how we play against the Knicks will set the tone of how this trip goes.

Both Indiana and Toronto are on the second night of back to backs, so those are going to really tough. Rest of the games we should be favored though, but we've been weak on the road. We'll probably finish something like 4-3 or 3-4.

We are capable of doing it! A guy like Hedo may just have the fresh legs we need on a trip like this! JJ as well! Those guys could be springy enought to help us to a 7-0 trip! I would love to have an undefeated trip would possibly silence the critics

If this team comes out intense with a mission 6-1 should be the result with a loss to Indiana. If they play like they did on defense against Dallas and Boston 5-2 or 4-3. Doc has to put his rally speeches in overdrive we can't slack on the road with no Paul.

Detroit is a pretty sub-par team. I predict losses to Indiana and maybe the Raptors. We should win every other game but we will probably lose one more. I expect 5-2 or 4-3.

I'm guessing a 5-2. Lose to Pacers, and either Raps or Wiz.

All these teams other than Pacers would be ranked bottom 2 if they were in West conf. I'd be pretty disappointed if they go 4-3 or worse.

We will go between 4-3 and 6-1 which I would be ok with.

If we go 7-0 we would be the talk of the NBA and to do it without the best pg in the NBA, that would be awesome.

Given our previous road record this season, I'm going with this, expecting 4-3.

I'd be very happy with 5-2 or up. I'm really interested to see how the Clips play against the Pacers. Given the testiness of the last matchup, it'll be interesting to see how they play Blake, and how well he does to lead the team without CP. It'll be a good opportunity for him to grow as a player.

With K-mart & Amare sidelined with injuries I see our first unit playing about 25 minutes each while we coast to a win. This will allow us to be fresh going to face the Pacers and win 103-96

You never know. Not having those bigs might mean even more minutes for Melo. But the key isn't so much to stop Melo, it's to stop everyone else. With all this Griffin for Melo talk, one wonders what will happen between those two guys tonight.

Come to think of it, Bill Simmons (who's usually on the ESPN panel) is all about trading Blake for someone else.

Simmons thinks the Clippers should trade Griffin for Love though. IIRC, I don't think he ever endorsed a Carmelo for Blake trade.

It's interesting how Blake's rebounding is down since Paul's injury. Not saying that' a bad thing...it seems he's doing a lot of other things to help his team win. Performing more ball handling duties. Passing the ball. Stealing. And, of course scoring.

I can't believe the work Doc has done to our team this year. He's done everything from make DJ a DPOY candidate to a 5 game win streak with the best PG in the world sitting in a street clothes.

If Doc can bring us to 6-1 after this trip he's gotta be the COY front runner.

That Pacers game had "bring in CP3" written all over it. Grant it he is injured but mid way through the first we were playing our style of ball and it seems we missed way to many open jumpers. CP3 would have calmed the troops and I feel that game was very winnable.

Need to bounce back and jump on the Pistons early and extremely hard. Don't need another "the Clippers let them hang around" storyline.

It's been a pretty good road trip so far, as we expected. The bobcats, bulls & raptors all have the ability to play better than their record shows, so we have to keep the focus.

The simple fact that Kemba is out for the Bobcats and that the hapless Lakers took CHI to OT in Chicago gives me great confidence that the next two wins are in the bag.

Grant it we need to keep the focus the entire game and not allow either team to hang aroung, ala, cleveland, orlando, phx, et al games that should be in the win column now.

I'm sticking by my 6-1 prediction, grant it the lone loss I predicted came against the wrong team so far.

We'll definitely be better when Paul returns (if all bodies are healthy). How much will be the question. I personally think we will be significantly better with the way we've played without him so far. We've seem to grow as a team. We'll soon find out though.

Scares me because all of Cp's assists have been spread out to different guys, COllison, Reddick, and Griffin. I hope Griffin will continue beasting even when CP comes back. Let's hope our team will be awesome, and we don't have a Chauncey result, but then again it's CP3, so why am I Panicking? #CP3Best

Honestly, I think Blake will be fine when CP3 comes back. We've already seen Blake more aggressive in 4th quarters since Doc became coach. Remember Blake's 18 point 4th quarter? That was before Paul got hurt. In some cases, Doc has deliberately called plays for Blake and he's been effective. Once we get our starting backcourt intact, not only do I think Blake will continue his aggression, but it will be even easier for him to dominate. Because Paul will be doing his thing drawing defenses and dropping dimes...and JJ (and possibly Jared?) will be spreading the floor.

I really like the way Collison has stepped up. We all love Bledsoe but when he stepped in after Paul got hurt last year, we never knew which EB we were getting. The explosive dynamo who could alter games, or the out of control bull in a china shop. Some of that has to do with the fact we had a solid but less-than-assertive Willie Green as his running mate in the backcourt. But Collison (albeit having problems with a sprained big toe right now) has been consistent. A good passer who takes care of the ball. Has a steady jumper and even rebounds and steals (though he's no Bledsoe in those departments).

That's a Perfect Description of what Eric Bledsoe was last year.

OUT OF CONTROL.

Seems Collison won't have to worry about guarding Kemba Walker tomorrow, as he'll be out for the next week and a half, that sort of eases the pain, Bobcats are a pretty capable team.
