Clippers-Bulls Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Jan 23 2014 11:31PM The Los Angeles Clippers were cruising along without Chris Paul, but now they'll have to recover from a somewhat surprising setback on their road trip. The Chicago Bulls, meanwhile, seem to keep winning no matter how many players are missing from their lineup. The Clippers will try to avoid consecutive losses for the first time in a month while the Bulls seek their 10th win in 12 games Friday night at the United Center. Los Angeles (29-15) had averaged 108.6 points - 3.2 better than its season average - while winning six of eight since its....

I Still fully expect the bulls to bring it defensively so we gotta find some offense throughout the game and take it to the bulls

This is going to be a tough game. I hope the Clippers can bounce back and win this one.

"The Chicago Bulls, meanwhile, seem to keep winning no matter how many players are missing from their lineup."

Are we so troubled on the road that we can't have the same attitude? I mean, come on! We fail against somewhat easy opponents but we make it seem they are good as teams when we play them. I'm frustrated as could be! Yes, we have 15 loses to be in the west....but a lot of those are against eastern teams which are horrible except Heat and Pacers.

I had high expectations with Doc, especially knowing how just in 1 year with the big three (he) won a ring and had barely any problems in the regular season. Knowing through it all rondo really didn't see eye to eye. Are the clippers any much different? Rondo was still freshly new, kg prime, and Allen prime.

I guess, I'm coming off a little too strong and your probably, probably right. We have the skills and the will but are way too inconsistent for a team (despite) injuries. We have players on the bench to help but so far, are waste of money!

I'm tired of the excuses! One player is down and all heck breaks loose.

7-3 w/o CP3 isn't quite all heck breaking lose. We only lost 1 game that we shouldn't have.

What I'm saying that its always something if he in or not. It can be any other player that can be an excuse of us losing.

Is that all you caught in that?

JJ's return probably has come in the nick of time too. His production has been up and down (rough for any player to return just before the Grammy trip), but he usually helps the team more than he hurts...the 4 TO's the other night were definitely uncharacteristic. Hope JJ"s sharper tonight.

Most of JJs sporatic play comes from the fact that he doesn't have Cp3 to feed the ball to him on a silver platter,

collision does a good job, but nobody dominates the ball like Cp3

Excited to be back on this site been a long time. Today's game is a little scary for us but I think we can get the W. The bulls have injuries and lost some players but they still come out each night and bring that D. We need redick to hit some shots to really open things up for our team offensively

Should be a good game tonight. Let's all hope Collison is effective even though he's playing with an injury.

I don't want to get caught up in winning or losing. Of course I want them to win every game, but I want to continue seeing improvement in a lot vital areas.

Defensively- continue to master their rotations. Improve their rebounding from the perimeter players. Continued improvement from DJ and Blake.

Offensively- ball movement. More touches for Blake. Hopefully Collison is feeling better and could provide some dribble penetration as well.

I think when the clips do well in these areas they win anyways, but I'd like to see more consistency from them as a team. I feel like if our 3 ball isn't falling in, the team as a whole just doesn't seem to do their best.

Does anyone else think that it might be better if Collison were to sit this one out? Considering Chicago doesn't have a great PG and tomorrow we have to play Kyle Lowry, Vasquez, and the Raptors, I would prefer Collison take an extra day and get healthy for Toronto.

Somehow, I don't think this will be another 40-point blowout of the Bulls.

If he plays it's more like them being desperate. In term of not having another true pg. We need Blake all around game. Jc can cover it.

One thing going for us,they have no idea what to expect from our lineups (of course we don't either).

So I don't burn brain cells thinking about this,pre-game Ralph says only 4 current NBA coaches have won championships. Doc, Pop, Spolstra (however it is spelled) ,and who else?

It will not be easy. They have the last game we played in their mind. On the plus side, Mullens is inactive.

Battle of the bigs going on.

Noah 6 points, 3 (all offensive) rebounds, and 3 assist.

Blake 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists!

Boozer has 14 points 4 rebounds.

If Barnes could shoot consistently, then it would help the Clippers a lot. Clippers being 27th in 3PT% is pretty crazy.

Almost don't want Doc to take the hot shooting JJ out...but time to put former Bull Jamal in, and he's already at the line!

What a drive by Jamal to end the 1st quarter. Great 1st quarter by the guys. Moving the ball and more importantly, moving without the ball. Blake is beasting it.
