I'm anxious to see Granger play with this team. Oh and a win is definitely good.

I don't know why, but I really get the feeling the Granger is going to put up some very decent numbers for us. Just that starting and new scenery aspect. Plus he claims to be healthy now. I am not really one to be to optimistic about a player coming back from injury and aging, but just something tells me he is going to be awesome for us. Lets up i am right!

"Doc Rivers says Danny Granger 'ideally' would be a starter, but he has to mark him as active first"

~via ProBasketballTalk

Could this suggest that Granger could possibly start for the Clippers vs Suns game? I wouldn't care either way, as long as we get to see DG get some action on the court! But, I say start em' if he is performing well in practice.

I hope Clippers really clamp down on their defense like they did the last game. The Suns are a surprisingly good offensive team, but Clippers can definitely win this.

Looking forward to seeing Danny Granger play! I hope he plays well.

Blazers lose to Fakers, so we're the #3 seed.

Lets get this win against the Suns now

Reading that, it sounds like the opposite actually. I get the "active" joke that he made, but it

sounds more like Doc is just saying, patience Granger, you most likely could be starting soon, but not right now.

Amazing the Lakers jacking our style with the lob play. Very happy they won gives us a fall back if something goes wrong tomorrow.

Tomorrows game gains even more importance with Suns looking to jump up some as well.

I feel you on that. Suns play consistently Hard, and they have allot of good players, I may have underestimated their team as well, but Looking at their roster, there's really not any holes, they're all rather good. I wonder if E-Bled will be playing in the game, I hear he could be back any day know. As for Thursday, if they want to play fast I see no reason to worry about them. But I got's to thank them for helping us today!!!. Aldridge shrivels down the stretch once again.

I'm really excited to finally watch Granger play, for real this time. Let's hope Doc remembers to circle Granger's name.

Did they win or did Portland overlook them? You know what happens to a good team when they overlook crap teams.

All games are pretty much must wins for us now they way things are nutted up. I hope missing our two best 3 point shooters doesn't hurt us. I read in the paper PHX averages 25.something 3 point shots per game and makes like 38% of the,need to take them off that line.

Is it me that our team played at a faster pace than usual against the Pelicans a few days ago? That is such a good sign for me. I have a good feeling we will not have a problem with tonight's game. The guys looked great playing with a lot of intensity and confidence. Suns fear us more than we fear them.

We might want a slow paced game because with the shooters the Suns have spreading the floor and the athletes getting up and down could be an issue. In the Suns place we don't need the fans getting into it so if we can get a "grit and grind" game like the Houston one we can break them down. Game is going to be exciting either way.

It's the pelican. I wouldn't read too much to it. If it were against Memphis......

Looking forward to this game for 2 reasons, PHX embarrassed us last game on our homecourt and its Grangers first game as a clipper, lego clips!

I think being a 6-11 big who shoots .391% from the 3PT line in his career is a pretty good reason. He's tough on a lot of player/teams. Very Happy

Watching that Mavericks clip still makes me nervous even though I already know what happens. What a great comeback.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that we easily should beat this team. Feel free to quote me if I'm wrong by the end of the night.

I have a good feeling about tonight. We've been rolling lately and the Rockets have to play the Heat. Let's just hope Barnes and Granger can contain Green, who killed us last time. Dragic is a superstar, but I love the way CP3 has been playing lately. He's been aggressive on offensive, but he's still been distributing as always. I predicting this game stays close until the end, when the Clips pull away. I hope I'm right.

LOL, I've learned that it doesn't matter whether you're right or wrong, as long as you can admit being wrong later on.

I would say more so on offense, Frye is a true stretch 4 you have to respect his 3pt shot, having to guard so far is out of Blakes comfort zone and doesn't put him in a good rebounding position which he seems to thrive best.

It would be interesting to find out the percentage of 3pt shoters when Blake is guarding because from observation it seems he gets scored on a lot from out there, his short arms and slow reactions does little to bother the shooter, he is better to body up on D but then he is probably worried about being beaten off the dribble

Dragic is the MOST underrated player in the league. HE can go off for 40 on any given night. Plus they have front court depth like Utah had a couple years back. Idk guys, this game is gonna be tough

All star snub for sure, similar to Curry last season, he has just gone on a tear since AS weekend

We are 1-8 in our last 9 games in PHX. Don't think you'll be able to put easy in the same sentence IF we win tonight, LOL.

Collison might really struggle against a much taller Gerald green. Hopefully not too bad though

He can play. They just don't want him too. Take what you want from this ....

I'll bet you granger sees less than 15 minutes tonight. It's not because he doesn't have the potential to be the starter, but because doc always looks at the big picture, and easing a player into PT rather than throwing him out there is more important that the 2-3 games the process takes.
