"He scored like 60, didn't he? Blake's great," Spurs veteran Tim Duncan said when asked about trying to contain Griffin. "He's been playing the best basketball of his career thus far." Griffin, though, wasn't happy about his team's defensive effort as the Clippers had a three-game winning streak snapped. They gave up more than 110 points for the fourth time in six games. "Sometimes you can't control if you're shooting the ball well or things like that. But you can always control your energy on defense," Griffin said. "Even when you're tired, you can still bring a little bit more. "... It's on....

I hate the Grizzlies. I hope the Clippers can shut them down early and win this game.

Clips need to win this one to keep pace with Houston.

Reggie will have some burn. He needs to step up and show us a little something.

Clips need this win and keep up with the teams in the west , OKC was beat by the heat by over 20 pts , that alone should fuel the guys cause we actually gave Miami a better game !!! I believe Doc"s championship experience will coach this team to a great 2nd half and into the playoffs deep !! Then finals !!

I would like to see CP have a good aggressive game while Blake continues to beast. In fact it will be interesting to see how Blakes progression impacts his regular wresting match up with ZBo. DJ needs to have a good game against Gasol too!

Just gotta be aware that Memphis are fighting for their playoff lives. Maintain composure defensively... read and call the plays, step in for charges and rebound, rebound, rebound.

We can outscore these guys easily if we don't give them second opportunities. This is a great test of Blake's newfound superpowers.

I'll be happy if we come out of these next two games with a split, because it's quite possible to go 13-2 or 12-3 over the following 15.

Team needs to show toughness would be nice if we held a good team under 100 or 90. Rebound and defend.

Lets see if Blake can dominate Zbo this time around. He is on the best run of his career.

I hope this time the wing players will play a better game.

Without Dudley/Barnes/Crawford and some 3's we can't win. Hope the tread deadline did some productive things in their minds.

Maybe Bullock will get another chance.

I've noticed a pattern with this team. Whenever there is great opportunity to make a slight jump over a team, we seem to crap on ourselves. I am not looking forward to this game for that very reason.

  • before Postman brings out his pom poms and and accuses me of not having that "team spirit", I am not saying we're going to lose. I just don't like these type of games.

That's exactly how I feel about this game. I would be shocked if we come into Memphis and win easily.

LMAO yup sounds about right. I agree with you 100 percent which is why lately I'm flipping out a little more. Every game we NEED to win badly for positioning.. we crap on ourselves as you said. I don't give a rats ass if we beat the Wizards if we can't take care of the teams ahead of us in the standings at home, missing 3 starters.

I feel like Blake is gonna have a beastly night despite whether the rest of the team comes to play or not. To me, this memphis team is probably one of Blake's highest frustrations he has to face when playing basketball.. Look for him to come out with determination.

Someone a while ago said that Blake was CPs Robin to his Batman. It is safe to say Griffin grew up and became Nightwing. Then as Batman was down he stepped into the Batman role and became Batman. Now that Batman is back we got two Bats. It is safe to say that BG is now OUR Batman of the future. Batman Beyond??

With Redick out he better, no good reason to play Willie Green at this point. Bullock should be our primary backup at SG until Redick is back and get minutes at SF as well if the other two struggle like they have been.

I think by Tue the Clippers will sign one player to a 10-day, one player for the rest of the season and leave one slot open for flexibility

Who will it be?

Would be nice to see Blake drop his first career 50 on Z-Bo. The way he's been playing lately and with their history, it wouldn't surprise me. Alpha male pissing all over the mangy, bloated, old has-been to mark his newly won turf as the biggest dog in town.

Go get it, Blake!

Front page of NBA.com...

Basically... "Blake gets hacked constantly"

http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2014/02/2 ... f:nbahpt6b

This theme has been popping up more and more ever since the Andrew 'Bogus ejection' incident on Christmas, combined with Blake's superstar play of late.

If Z-Bo tries his customary thuggery to slow Blake tonight, I get a feeling he's tossed. If he doesn't, he can't win the matchup.

"Fat-boy, fat-boy... Whatcha gonna do?

Whatcha gonna do when he comes for you?"

I do not understand why Doc would give Sasha another 10 day. The 1st one he only play 5-10 minutes the whole time.

You could well be right, I really hope you are right. Z-Bo getting tossed would be mighty satisfying............................. to say the least! Or Blake beasting on him would be just as good.

Actually, I'd be happy if Blake gave Zbo a cold-blooded elbow or a toss-down or some ****. Sure he'd be ejected but Zbo has had it long coming.

Eric Patten ‏@EricPatten 4m

Jared Dudley: "My knee is 100% healthy. I'm ready to go." He battled tendinitis in his right knee for more than 3 months

Go get 'em, Jared. I'll settle for 15pts on 6/11, 4 boards and an assist... every game from here on out.

Blake can make a HUGE psychological statement to shake up ZBo's confidence and whole bully attitude incase the inevitable happens & we end up facing them in the playoffs.

I get it,I hate when we play these guys. Seems like their main goal is to injure someone an hopefully a starter, then try to win. Once they get a take down they go for wins.

These types of teams step up when we come to town,we need to step on them and fast.

I think a lot of his slump recently, was due to being benched and maybe being traded. His knee is now "100%" and he's ready to go. translation?

"Now that I know I'm staying, all my worries are gone".

Blake statement game. CP bonce back game. Dudleys' put up or shut up game.

Hope guys bring it. It is time to put the pressure at top of table.

If Duds plays well from now on. The Clips could be unstoppable. PG - Chris Paul - Darren Collison - SG - JJ Reddick - Jamal Crawford - Willie Green SF - Danny Granger - Jared Dudley -....

Alright, if Dudley says his knee is 100%, then perhaps he'll finally be a productive player. The weight of the trade deadline is gone so I expect him to play better.

I hope Blake totally dominates Randolph tonight. That dude always has a grudge against the Clips.

He played like crap for the Suns early in the season then picked it up in the second half. So maybe he'll be better over the next few weeks. To me he looks out of shape and a bit overweight, but I dunno.

Memphis is really a slow-paced team. Clippers should be able to take advantage.
