Wizards-Clippers Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Jan 29 2014 2:14AM Following the best Grammy trip in franchise history, the Los Angeles Clippers are looking to continue their winning ways back at Staples Center. The Washington Wizards have played well away from home, but they haven't won a road game against Los Angeles in six years. Though they remain without All-Star Chris Paul, the Clippers seek their fourth straight victory Wednesday night, while the Wizards will try to move above .500 for the first time in more than four years. Los Angeles (32-15) split its first four games while Staples was being occupied by the Grammy Awards....

1-1 is a very successful road B2B for the Wiz against these two teams. Jump on them early and they'll roll over. Defensive pressure from the jump.

After beating the Warriors last night, the Wizards may have tired legs for this game. I hope Clippers take advantage and win this one!

Warriors lost so that keeps them further down in the standings. San Antonio lost to Houston and Portland lost to Memphis. Also, the Thunder play Miami this afternoon so there's a good chance for the Thunder to lose.

All of last nights losses closed the gap between the 2-4th seed, so we are only 1.5 games behind Portland, and 2 games behind San Antonio.

I love this narrowing of the gap but this is all due to the top teams finally playing top notch opposition, so we can't assume this trend will continue. We need to make trades to get into that top 3.

Only the Thunder scare me. If they have the 1 seed, I'm ok with the 3rd or 2nd seed. If they have the 2nd seed, I'm ok with the 4th or if we run like God, the 1 seed.

I think our 3 point defense gives us a good chance against Spurs, Blazers, Warriors. We have Houston's number so I'm not worried about them.

Game will be very tough seems the Wizards are better on the road than at home. NeNe playing will be tougher than before because they are going to try and attack us with interior scoring and passing that means DJ and Blake have to step it more so then the last few games. Suspecting John Wall to go at Collison often. This is one of those games where defense must be played at a high level.

2nd seed would give us home court in the second round, so we should push for that and it's within reach; the Thunder aren't even really out of reach. We should win this game, second night of back to back for Washington and we've already blown them out on their home court this year.

I know we say this about a lot of games, but this is a CLASSIC trap game scenario:

  • The team's finally home after a successful 7 straight game road trip; liable to become too relaxed.

  • Playing a mediocre team on their 2nd of a back-to-back but with enough talent to score against anyone.

  • Know we have to play at Golden State TOMORROW. Blake, especially must be looking forward to that game.

I hope I'm wrong and the Clippers stay focused.

Wizards 6-3 in their last 9 games. Good defensive team, ranked 10th in DRtg.

Always the 1st game back from a long road trip is the toughest one. Gotta stay focused.

Clippers -8.5 tonight.

Here a picture that should make everyones night. Or this one. Is it okay to absolutely despise the Warriors? Okay, Good! I love putting that look on Mark Jacksons Face and Mike Woodson is just hilarious ....

I hope Collison has a big game against Wall. And Blake should have his way with Nene. We have to win this game and close in on Portland and San Antonio in the standings.

This was a so-so first quarter, just trading baskets with the Wizards. I hope the Clippers can get a good separation in the second quarter.
