Clippers-Pistons Preview Posted Jan 19 2014 4:45PM This duel during the day in Detroit will display some of the NBA's dunking dynamos. That's certainly the preferred method of scoring for the Pistons given the way they shoot 3-pointers. Fans of ferocious finishes should have fun Monday when DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers take on Andre Drummond and the Pistons. Jordan has an NBA-high 109 dunks, Drummond is second with 99 and Griffin fourth with 85. The Pistons also have Josh Smith, who is known for his aerial ability but has played more on the perimeter this season and has just 33....

I just hope the clippers capitalize with an (W) and not an (L) because of they might look at this as an easy win and loose focus. Jordan please don't let Drummond punk you or any other down low player. Darren, you got this! Blake, come out strong! JJ, well he doesn't need a lecture because he normally get it done! Crawford, if you're hot then shoot away but if not use you're pg skills and get it done.

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Crawford can be a very serviceable PG. He has had games even as recent as this season of +10 assists in a game.

I hope DC, JJ, and Matt are okay for this game. Clippers have to win this to get back on track.

This is perfect for me in the UK! I am really struggling to catch the clips without league pass this season so great news for us over the pond.

Too right. Only problem is I am working tonight so will miss most of it anyway. Might be able to watch the 4 quarter though.

A sprained big toe sounds almost unbearable for a basketball player. Not sure how DC is gonna do it. JJ looked pretty good the rest of the Indiana game aside from bricking shots. It looked like he ran pretty well.

Oh ok. So do people have the day of work then?

Oh cr*P. I got the East and West coast time mixed up. The game starts just when I go to work so I'll miss it all. That is not cool, one of the few times I could watch a match live and not stay up late into the night and I am working.

Detroit's got some big boys...but they're not a very good defensive team. Coming of playing the best defensive team should make a difference. I sure hope JJ breaks out of his little slump here. Not sure how the bruised knee might effect his play. I like what I've seen from Crawford last 2 games.

Do I smell a Jared Dudley game today? I think so.

If one basketball player likes to celebrate MLK Day, it's Blake.

Last year (in a loss to GS), he had 26 points on 61%, 13 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks.

2012, he had 23 points, 60% (but only shot 5-13 from the free throw line so he should have had around 28 points), 14 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in a win against NJ.

2011, as we know 47 points on 79%, 14 rebounds, 3 assists and a block in a win against Indy.

Hope he continues that trend.

Hopefully we can keep them off the offensive boards, with AD, Monroe and J smooth.

I think this game will be close throughout the first half, then we bust it open in the third.

This game could be scary if Blake or DJ get into foul trouble. It will be hard to stop Smith, Monroe, and Drummond if we don't have both Blake and DJ playing big minutes.

Your exactly right. Toe injuries are generally impossible to "Play through" in

sports.

Unless he gets so doped up before the game so he doesn't feel the pain, I don't see how he is going to play.

Matt Barnes starting over Dudley! That could be interesting.

Barnes getting killed by Josh Smith. Redick looks limited. Bullock is inactive apparently:/. Maybe we will see some Willie....

Interesting that Matt is starting. Probably about time Jared gets to rest his knees a bit. I hope Matt has a great game.

Can't believe I am saying this but I am glad that Barnes dumb ass was benched for Dudley.

He is having zero impact and looks terrified. Not a good sign. On the whole we are beating ourselves with stupid turnovers.

Our defense has to kick it up another level greatly struggling.

I love that nickname. Too bad it doesn't instill fear though. It sounds like some kind of device you use to prep a Turkey during thanksgiving

Actually barnes didn't do too bad. Smith made some tough

shots, but really wasn't due to "Bad defense".

I like the Idea of Dudley playing with the second unit. I think

we need his shooting ability to boost the second unit.
