Clippers-Raptors Preview By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO Posted Jan 25 2014 1:25AM Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers are tied for the most wins in 2014, but the Toronto Raptors aren't far behind thanks to a strong stretch at home. The Clippers are well aware of what the Raptors are capable of at Air Canada Centre. Griffin looks to continue his impressive production, and help the Clippers snap a four-game road losing streak to the Raptors in a matchup of division leaders Saturday night. Griffin is averaging 26.3 points over the past 17 games after scoring 17.9 over the previous 14. The All-Star forward's recent success has....

Raptors have been playing some decent ball recently so we will have to play hard. Be great to get a back to back win!

Clippers need to win this game against the Raptors. I hope Clippers' continue to make their 3s, play better defense, and battle for those offensive rebounds.

Doesn't Darius Morris's 10-Day Contract end today?

Safe to say JJ is gonna have his hands full with 6'7 DeRozan.

It's been a long time since the Clippers won in Toronto. And it's 2nd of a back-to-back. This could get rough.

I feel that Doc, might keep him morris around more.

The Clippers on back to back games are not promising especially against the east but I hope it start changing from this point.

The bulls had a streak and it ended so I hope the clippers ends their's

Barnes will be on DeRozan and JJ will be guarding terrance ross. This should be a fun game to watch. Raptors playing much better without Rudy Gay.

Bag this W and it could be a great weekend. I don't much fancy the Rockets chances in Memphis, and Portland has Minny coming in today and @GSW tomorrow.

We can make up some ground and/or get some separation. Just need to win today.

DeMar DeRozan had 40 points in the game against the Dallas Mavericks. If Barnes gets the call to guard him and stays out of foul trouble it could be interesting.

I asked Dan Woike and Arash Markazi about Darius roster spot. @GameReporter32: @DanWoikeSports Dan, any news on Darius Morris? His 10-Day ends today, right? @ArashMarkazi said Clips could look at Odom after it ends @ArashMarkazi: @GameReporter32 Doc....

One thing is for sure there is a lot of athleticism in this

game and should be exciting for sure.

Demar has been on a tear lately. The Raptors have been playing

solid the second half of this season so it's definitely not

a walk in the park.

I'd love to see Lock down D by the clippers, but more realistically

this game will probably be a shoot out, and more so who can

outscore the other team.

Lamar Odom was in Miami on Thursday night and was seen having dinner with Miami Heat players Dwayne Wade who was with Gabrielle Union, and Chris Bosch and his wife Adrienne. Do you think the Heat are talking to Lamar? Hope he comes to the Clippers. I think he could help with defense. The few pictures that I have seen of him looks like he has been working out.

I actually like the Toronto Raptors this year. I was following that team closely because a) it remind me of Clippers of old and b) Demar derozan is in my fantasy team. I like how their team was constructed and played. The flexibility they gave themselves by trading Rudy Gay and how their offense so much smoother. It doesn't hurt Derozan are playing like a an All-star for their team. He's not that one-dimensional type of player anymore, he's assist, rebounds, and occasionally blocks. Clippers will have their hand full against Toronto. Let's go Clips!

I wonder if the fans would heavily boo Hedo tonight. That season with the raps was horrendous.

Is it me or does it seem that Jared Dudley has fallen out of FAVOR with Doc Rivers. Jared's Up and Down season has to be frustrating Himself and Doc. Doc likes players of consistency.....

Yea but our offense is built around having a shooter at the 3.

I wonder if there are any low price specialist out there.

Doc has said all year he wants to rest Dudley more because he's been injured all year and wants him full strength for the post season, but he has also criticized Barnes, so don't think he fully trusted Barnes to step in do that job until more recently. Barnes also had a period where he was out completely and played poorly after he came back, which complicated things more. Even recently as the Charlotte game Dudley played more minutes than Barnes, when Barnes had a bad game.

I think if Barnes can play well more consistently we will see Dudley's minutes go down a bit more, especially on road, where he's played much worse than at home.

DJ needs to stop going for that fake. Val rarely takes a jumper from there.

Maybe it would be a good idea to stay close to Ross. HUmm might work.

I would not say that completely. Blake, besides the double team, is getting whack every time. Doc is very unhappy with the non calls and the calls in favor of the UFC Raptors.
