it almost seems as if the loss of Redick was a bigger detriment than losing Paul. And as you start to examine the games you see why. Griffin and Collison can both distribute the ball very well and combined its seems as if their passing ability can equal what Paul does alone. Shooting, however, is a different story because no one can do what Redick does. Crawford can carry a team offensively but it takes him many shots to do it and Dudley can shoot the three at high percentage but rarely shoots. You can see how much Redick does for this team, and frankly I would not be surprised if we come out of Indy with a win.

Clippers-Pacers Preview

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO Posted Jan 18 2014 1:32AM

Indiana's stellar play at home has done more than put the Pacers atop the Eastern Conference. It's had them hovering around the top of the entire NBA all season.

Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers, meanwhile, have been enjoying a strong stretch of their own since Chris Paul went down with an injury.

The Pacers, who have lost only once at home, seek their ninth straight win at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday as they close the season series with the surging Clippers.

Indiana (31-7) currently owns the best record in the league, which includes a 20-1 mark at home. The Pacers are having little trouble in Indiana of late, outscoring visitors by an average of 21.3 points during the win streak.

"We have set a goal, and we want to be the No. 1 seed (in the East)," said guard Lance Stephenson. "Every night I try to bring something to the table."

Stephenson did just that Thursday with a career-high 28 points, while Paul George added 25 with seven rebounds in a 117-89 thrashing of New York that improved the Pacers to 3-0 on a four-game homestand.

The team's league-best defense held the Knicks to 40.0 percent shooting, including 4 of 19 from beyond the arc. They're yielding 88.1 points per game and 40.9 percent shooting this season, but have been even better during the home streak, allowing an average of 81.7 points and 28.0 percent shooting from long range.

Indiana beat the Clippers 105-100 at Staples Center on Dec. 1, but fell 99-91 in the most recent home meeting Feb. 28.

Los Angeles (28-13), the Pacific Division leader, has won five in a row while averaging 114.6 points. That stretch has been made even more impressive by the absence of Paul, who is out for up to four more weeks with a separated shoulder.

The Clippers are a surprising 6-1 without their All-Star point guard this season, and Griffin is doing his part to pick up the slack. The forward leads the team with 22.3 points per game, but he's putting up 29.3 on 63.3 percent shooting over the past four.

Griffin came up big with 32 points on 12-for-20 shooting Friday in a 109-95 win over the Knicks that opened a seven-game road trip caused by Staples hosting the Grammys.

"Something CP always says when we are on a road trip, 'Can't win them all without winning the first,'" Griffin said. "So to get the first one for us is obviously great, to get the win to start the road trip and help our mindsets for the rest of the games."

Griffin had a quiet night against Indiana's imposing frontcourt in the first meeting, when he was limited to 16 points and 12 rebounds with five turnovers.

Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 20 points off the bench in that contest and is coming off a 29-point effort against New York, overcoming an illness that had him vomiting in the locker room during warmups.

Crawford is averaging 22.7 points over his last three meetings with the Pacers, including 23 at Indiana on Feb. 28.

Containing George should be one of the keys to beating Indiana again. The forward is averaging 23.3 points over the last three meetings after scoring 27 on Dec. 1.

George has totaled 56 points in two games since scoring a season-low eight - his only game in single digits this season - and shooting 2 for 14 from the field in a 93-66 win over Washington on Jan. 10.

The Pacers still turn the ball over which allows the Clips to thrive.

"- The Clippers are now 6-1 without superstar Chris Paul. Since Paul got injured, Darren Collison has filled the void valiantly, exactly like he did back in their shared stint in New Orleans. Collison is posting 16.4 points, 6.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds in seven starts without him.

  • Griffin dropped 32 points on Friday. He has surpassed the plateau in two of the last three games. In December, Griffin scored 30 or more four times he has already done so three times in January.

  • The Clippers thrive off opponent's mistakes. They average 19.1 points per game off turnovers (second in the NBA). For everything that Indiana does well, protecting the ball is not one of them. They are tied for 23rd in the league at 15.5 turnovers per game."

Indiana is due to lose at home, lol. Why not this game? It would be super awesome to win against the mighty Indiana Pacers. Clippers can capitalize on the Pacers' turnovers. This looks to be a very tough game, but I hope the Clips can pull out a win somehow.

Pacers / Clippers are around the same level if you only compare perimeter players. It all depends on whether Blake / DJ can outplay Hibbert, West, Scola.

We definitely can win tonight. On the "road trip" thread I was thinking 6-1 with our only loss being against George and the pacers depending on how we started the road trip....I really liked what I saw last night. We need Blake to show up tonight because he was quiet last time we played them and we just need to contain George. He's a pure scorer, we can't stop him but we can slow him down. As for lance Stephenson I agree with CapsNClips... whether we get lebron or smith tonight though he is EXTREMELY turnover prone.

I'm excited. ...I have to work tonight but I will definitely be ' hardly working ' instead of a hard worker tonight haha I work at Cicispizza so I will have the game on for sure! LETS GO CLIPS!!!!!!

I have a great feeling Clippers come on top. I predict someone steps up big time. Maybe Hedo gives Scola a fit and Hedo scores about 10-12. Someone steps up big tonight and the Clippers win

Pacers get away with a lot of stuff. Even their bookkeepers give them stuff. No Way Hibbert has blocked 5 shots in one quarter. If they gave him a block instead of a steal on that Jared Dudley lob to DJ than they obvioulsy are giving them crap.
