It's time to get back to work for Blake Griffin & Chris Paul, as they & the rest of the Clippers try to exact revenge on the San Antonio Spurs for that awful beat-down a month ago. Unfortunately, JJ Redick will be out again because of his hip injury, and Willie Green is doubtful as well. This is a huge game- let's see if the guys can knock off another top conference rival.

Last time we came back from All Star Break, we played like dog crap. If I'm not mistaken, I think that was also against SA. Hopefully, we're more focused this time around.

This is going to be a huge game for the Clippers if they can beat Portland and the Spurs on back to back games then the National Media will recognize that the Clippers are for real! The 1st time they played the Spurs the Clippers were fully healthy with Cp3 and J.J playing and the 2nd game they played the Clippers were without Paul and coming of a back to back. This is the 3rd game the Clippers and Spurs play this season and this is at Staples were the Clippers have a 19 or 20-4 Record but i just heard that J.J Reddick won't be playing this game but i am Confident that the Clippers will find a way to win this game i think it's going to be a close game but the Clippers win. I would like to know how Greg Popovich tries to guard Blake Griffin if he uses Tim Duncan Blake will face him up and blow right by him if he uses Boris Diaw Blake will post him up! I think Blake will be the Difference in this game.This whole week is a hard week we play the Spurs,Okc,Memphis those will be huge tests to see were the Clippers are if there Contenders or Pretenders! CLIPPERNATION STAND UP!

It's a bummer that JJ is not playing tonight. I hope he and Willie get well soon. A full healthy Clippers squad would be a welcome sight.

The first game we played them fully healthy we blew them out.

I feel we need another blowout. Their key pieces are old now. They have good young guys but the reality is tim, parker, and ginobli have plently miles on them.

We need to run them out of the building.

It changes a lot to me. Tonys the one that does the most damage every time we play and slices our defense up like butter. He Is the best player on the spurs and without him playing it will hurt their offense a lot

Last year we opened the 2nd half against the Spurs and they mopped the floor with us(I saw it live too it was ugly). We have to hit them in the mouth early and often and put the pressure on them. No Parker tonight I think gives the Spurs an advantage. Patty Mills has some fresh legs and he can shoot.

I really hope JJ is ok and will be able to play soon. His health is a concern, maybe his body can't handle a starting role? IDK, but it's frustrating not being able to see him play.

With JJ out for 3-5 weeks , Jamal should be our SG starter through PO ,JJ should revert back to be a bench player I don't want a repeat of what happen to us last year regarding Billups.We need chemistry this second half of the season and PO.

I know Blake's been on fire recently, but I say we give CP3 the ball tonight and let him take over. Which of their guards is going to stop him? Cory Joseph, Patty Mills, Belinelli, De Colo? Good luck with that Spurs. I predict a big game from CP3 TONIGHT!

Crap, I didn't his injury was that bad. Well, at least when he returned from that wrist injury early this season, he had that huge game against the Rockets (I'm not sure that's the correct team). It seems like JJ doesn't get affected from "being rusty" like most other players.

Doc must have to told him he may be on his way out. Hmmm, I'm not the biggest Barnes fan but I don't see how trading him helps unless we're getting a good piece back. We need his toughness and aggresiveness.

Awful news about JJ.... hope he gets well. In the mean time, as a fan, I would not mind seeing a Redick trade for a BIG return.... as a general manager though, I don't think it's the smartest idea. May or may not be a closer game than we think tonight... even when injured the Spurs have their system.
