Clippers-Knicks Preview By JEFF BARTL Posted Jan 17 2014 12:17AM Chris Paul's absence didn't hinder the Los Angeles Clippers as they completed a perfect homestand, and they're hoping the same can be said after their upcoming road trip. Los Angeles plays its first of seven straight road games Friday night as it seeks a fourth consecutive victory over the New York Knicks. The Clippers (27-13) have won four of five since Paul separated his shoulder Jan. 3 and are on the verge of a five-game winning streak that would match their season high. J.J. Redick scored a career-high 33 points and Blake Griffin added 23 as....

I hope Blake dominates and we demolish the Knicks. Tired of this stupid Griffin for Melo talk.

I just hope we play solid Defense and rebound the hell out of the ball. Last game's rebounding effort from a lot of our players had me frustrated. I thought Blake would kill Dirk on the boards and they were on the same pace the whole game.

I hate when our players try to leak out so much. It drives me nuts and so many of them try to do it. I think DJ is getting so many rebounds in part because he is focused on rebounds not leaking out as much as in years past.

And with said regarding rebounding, we are a better over all rebounding team so far than last year. But yeah, we need more effort by others players too.

I'm hoping for some JR Smith antics. Woodson's "WTF?" face cracks me up every time...

How is it that we come back from 17 down to win without CP3 in the final 5 minutes of the Dallas game and beat them in dramatic fashion, and nba.com talks about the incompetence of the houston rockets?

Man, everything about these two teams suggest we should dominate in every possible way. But you never know on the road...

They still have some good players on the Knicks that could light us up. Hardaway Jr, Shump, Smith and obviously Melo.

Our Wing players need to step up tonight defensively....or just have really good offense, that seemed to work against Dallas.

@Cleepers I hope we can help in adding some big quality minutes to that reel.

In the Interview with Madelyn Burke, Hedo seemed either VERY excited or nervous. I hope he can give us something

Hedo interviews are useless.

Hedo has always been like that though when it comes to interviews. .... he either doesn't like them or he's shy or something. I hope he comes out maKing shots Smile)) (no Stephen Jackson repeat)

I fully expect Carmelo to have a huge night. It's national television. He knows with the injuries and the poor play he has to step up. And I'm about 97% sure he's gonna try to prove something to Doc Rivers...

...it's our job to make sure a huge performance by Melo won't matter.

My favorite Hedo moment was when the cameras caught him eating pizza before a game.

No Amar� and no Kmart, Blake should have a huge game, our bigs in general should dominate bargs and Tyson(who is still a little under weight due to his sick spell)

Hedo took his spot. He may be gone soon is my take

Bargnani is one of those stretch 4's that can perhaps cause some problems.

2 clanks by Collison on long jumpers, and the Knicks make the Clippers pay on the other end.

Dj getting lost on defense when he hedges and it's cost us 5 points on 2 consecutive possessions.

If we keep playing defense like this it will be a long night. I hope the offense steps it up.

I like that Blake is shooting without hesitation, but really want to see him go inside against these guys. I know it's tough with Tyson there.

Blake needs to go inside more.

He did there but 4 Knicks collapsed on him- should have threw it out to the open guy.
