Clippers-Bucks Preview Posted Jan 26 2014 12:19PM The Los Angeles Clippers enjoyed a winning seven-game trip earlier this season but that wasn't enough for them. Now they can fare better on this seven-game stretch. The Clippers seek a third straight victory to close out this trip Monday night against a lowly Milwaukee Bucks team that held a team meeting after its latest ugly defeat. Los Angeles (31-15) went 4-3 on a trip from Dec. 4-14, and is looking for more following Saturday's 126-118 victory over Toronto. Jamal Crawford scored a season-high 37 points and matched a season best with 11 assists. "Whenever you can go over....

We CANNOT lose this one. This road trip would go from good to terrible in an instant.

This is not the time for The Clippers to relax since its The Bucks! We need to stay focus and win this ball game with our defense since we didn't in Toronto... We was lucky to win because if we was playing any other team like Mia, Atl and Indy we would had lost. Gladly we had Crawford hot and JJ down the stretch. Let's go 5-2 guys and keep it rolling with (W) Go Clippers!

If we sign Bynum it will solve our back up big problems specially offensive and defensive rebounds.

How much would we have to pay to get him? The injury prone Andrew is a problem!

Clippers should easily win this game if they remain focused and not play down to the Bucks' level. Having a 5-2 road trip is a great incentive. I hope Clippers come out with a defensive mindset along with their gunslinging offense. Win this one, Clippers!

"Fear the Deer"...........................................I don't think so. Who thought that up? It sounds sooooooooo stupid. For the 1st time in quite a while this is a game I am not concerned about.

A Triple Double For Blake( 10 plus points,boards,and assist ) or DJ

( Points,Boards, and Blocks ) And One Of Our SGs or both gets hot and has a big game. Jamal with his hot hand or JJ returning to his old team

Once CP3 went down I felt like the Clippers started to take every game seriously unlike the previous road trip. Hope this trend continues especially when Paul comes back. Can't wait to see how good this team will be with everyone healthy + maybe an Odom type backup big.

Now with cp out this team isn't watching him penetrate and kick out everyone is doing other things. When cp3 comes back i hope they continue not to ball watch and rely on him

Cp3 at least try to be aggressive at the get go this year unlike last year. I hope he doesn't come back and be passive again

Caron will be a difference maker tonight. He's going to look for some payback. Dudley better have a good game tonight to not make us second guess exchanging Butler for him.

As bad as Dudley and Barnes have been this year, they've at least been better than Caron. 16 shot attempts per 36, despite shooting 38%? At least Barnes and Dudley have the good sense to stop shooting so much when they are off their game.

So if Morris has been released , what does doc have planned !! Please we need to take this bucks team seriously !! A 5-2 road trip without Paul is a great sign that this team is coming together as one !! Losing Paul for alittle while made this team grow up IMO

We are fortunate that the players we have are good passers. Blake has always shown an ability to find his teammates. Darren Collison can be a starting point guard on many teams, and while he isn't going to rank in the top 10 starting point guards having a guy like him as your backup is awesome. Essentially between Blake and Collison they have dished out comparable number of assists that Chris would. To be honest I think losing guys like Redick and Blake are going to be more detrimental to the team success because we don't have anyone who can do what they do. Redick goes down and our shooting goes stagnant, Blake goes down and our front court offense is gone.

Luckily for us these injuries have been staggered and they have come to players we can successfully replace.

I really wouldn't be surprised if Caron played with "something to prove" tonight. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if OJ Mayo tried to go off also. If I recall correctly, he was one of the names rumored to take our SG position before we got JJ.

This is a big trap game.. Hopefully we end this trip 5 - 2 this is a must win

Even with this being a big trap game, we should handle the Bucks easily. They're a terrible team...just terrible.

Our 2nd unit, as bad as they're been a lot of the times, could probably beat them 6 out of 10 times, LOL.

Need to stack wins going into Golden State Thursday on a second game of a back to back. We are gaining close to the Spurs and Blazers so every game the urgency should pick up.

They're not good enough to trap us. If we play terrible, we'll win by 15-20. Tonight is a gimme. Just hope it's over in the 3rd and we can get the bench some run.

Prediction: Redick goes for 15pts. in the 1st and we're up by about that much at the end of the quarter.

It is a trap or a relax game if the clippers stay focus we will be fine. The head coach got in their a%%! And I wouldn't be surprised if there was not one that's hot! We need to look at this game as if they were the best of the best because if not, we're in trouble.

Their's no such thing as a gimme in the NBA, anybody can get got, and If OJ Mayo has a good shooting night combined with Brandon Knight then it could be trouble. They have 2 elite defenders on their front line in Larry Sanders and John Henson who might I add can strait up ball, not to mention Ilyasova is a damn good player as well as Nate Walters, Luke Ridnour, and Gary Neal can shot and Giannis Antetokounmpo is a pretty good young player and as we know Caron can always go off. They're not that good but they haven't had their full roster healthy all year, they go into this one thinking easy win and they'll loose.

We lost to the Bobcats, so there's no reason to think we can't lose to the Bucks. Of course if the guys are locked in, we should win.

These are just the worst games for our guys. I hate the game against crappy teams. Seems like forever the Clips play to their opponents level, not to their own strengths.

Hell they can sign me if they want a cripple headcase. I won't last 1 game but I would be cheaper then Andruw lasting 5 games.

The worst team in the league is usually not a trap game. Guys get up to play the worst teams because it's too much of an embarrassment to lose to them.

We shouldn't have lost to the Bobcats no doubt, but they're a PO team at the moment and they have an all-star in big Al. Milwaukee is a shitshow.

OJ Mayo and Sanders are sick and won't be playing, according to Eric Patten's tweet. (Sorry, I don't know how to include the tweet.) Gary Neal is a game-time decision and 3 other players (Udoh, Pachulia, and Delfino) remain out. Yikes. Caron will have to shoulder this one if he can. Clippers should easily win this.

It'll go from great to average in an instant. 4-3 without CP3 and an injured Collison is still a solid trip.

Wow, the team with the worst record in the NBA and missing that many players. It does seem a little bit too easy. If I was Doc I would make sure that the players take it seriously and come out firing on all cylinders and take it seriously.

Even though I agree that we can't take any games off, in the Bobcats' defense, they are a much better team than the Bucks. Charlotte has 19 wins, Milwaukee 8 wins.
