From the sounds of it, Anthony Davis will play, but Jamal Crawford will not. Since Granger has already taken his physical, he will likely play.

This is a Exciting time to be a Clippers fan, Damn I'm so Pumped, I can't wait till this game start's. I Guess I'll just have to settle for seeing the "New" "Look" squad by playing some NBA 2k14. I hope to see Granger play tonight and see Davis get some more Burn out on the floor.

I loved Collison in the game against Houston as our main scorer in the end. It will be interesting to see if he get another chance in the end together with Paul on the court.

This game could be also interesting for are new Players Granger and Davis because we should win this game and maybe they get enough time to make a first step in this team.

Another question is Bullock. Will he play more? Or Green?

^^^^ I wouldn't be surprised if Bullock started at SG. Jamal and Reddick are both out most likely but it would be awesome if both played tonight. Wishful thinking

Yeah that is interesting.........................who will start at SG? Green or Bullock? Or even Barnes, and Dudley back in at the starting 3 spot.

The Pelicans played the Suns last night so they should be a little tired.

The minutes of Bullock will go down with Granger playing,he will play garbage minutes.

When Jamal is back yes, but what about filling the 2 spot while he is out?

Pelicans will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back so I expect them to be more than tired especially after trying to keep up with the fast-paced Suns last night. Clippers can and should win this one.

I'm looking forward to seeing Glen Davis and Danny Granger play in this game.

Pelicans thought that about us on Monday plus Davis came back already:

This has all the makings of a trap game for us. And remember, new players can cause new confusion on the court. I just hope a.Davis doesn't have a CAREER NIGHT along WITH another pelican, AND beat us by one pointor a buzzer beater at the end, lol! But yes, this should be a no-contest game for us in reality, GO CLIPS! Make this a statement game to the rest of a west, SICK 'EM!

The good news is that Granger's first game isn't against Miami or other stiff competition, so he should get a chance to play significant minutes. But with only one practice under his belt. Doc only has like 24 games or so to get ready for the playoffs and to get Granger into the flow with his team mates. If Doc sees Granger as the guy in the playoffs, and not Bullock, it is easy to predict who will be getting minutes. I wonder when the first time we will see somebody try to throw a "Lob City" pass to Big Baby. It's a bird, it's a plane, no...it's Super Baby...able to leap tall buildings with a single bound.

IF the team gives a lob pass TO him in tonight's game, when he comes down, all the concession stands will have to restock their chip racks, lol!

I Have been counting down the minutes and hours for this game lol

I am really excited to see Granger and big baby play today(I had school Wednesday so didn't watch big baby)

I don't think Granger will return to all star level, but definitely way better player than Dudley and Barnes.

Lets get this W tonight!!

More playing time for Granger and Davis for chemistry integration to the team.

I hope nobody freaks out this time and tempers their expectation. Doc knows what he's doing and will give players minutes the way he sees fit. At the same time, here's hoping it's an early blowout so we can see Davis and Granger with more minutes than expected today.

If I were a gambling man I would guess Willie. Been there done that and held the fort last season so why not now for a couple of games. then we see Darren Roll into backup pg and sg. Then new guys take the field

Since Chris and Darren worked so well together against Houston I would start them. Take Darren out early in the first and sub in Willie Green and make Darren sub in for Chris Paul later on. That way Darren can start and still run point for second unit without being exhausted.

Does anyone know for sure if Crawford is out for tonight? I read that he's supposed to be out 2-3 games, but I was hoping that he would feel better by today.

Jamal Out - Darren Starts in His Place.

Did Anyone Else Watch Danny's PreGame Presser?

WoW! This guy really loves this oragnization and they way he spoke of us made it seem like San Antonio and other weren't even close.

They asked him if he would be willing to resign and he said , " Most Definitely... I Love It Here. My Wife Loves LA."

He said he is excited to play with Chris. He said he called David West and asked about Chris. Also his former teammate Darren Collison plays here as well. Really a good fit for Danny and I am excited

You know how BSing Doc was being with that? LoL. How will you not play someone when someone you signed the day of a game played in that game Hedo Turkoglu and Darius Morris. Plus Sasha Vujacic played against the Heat. Not to mention Big Baby played the pther night. If we get up by 20-25+ Granger will play. He doesn't need to sit out for more than a week. Just to get out there and increase his conditioning cause working out is nothing like a game. Granger will play. I am certain. Not playong he would be stupid. A huge blowout game is the perfect time to play him.

You go

Collison/Green

Green/Bullock

Granger

Davis

Hollins

I hope that when Jamal comes back, he goes back to the 2nd unit. I rather see Willie Green play the 2 while Redick's out. At age 34, I think Crawford can use less minutes.

I don't get why granger is inactive tonight. He says he was healthy. We don't have both of our SG and we'll be short with players. Why wouldn't he play?!
