Team already knows what can go wrong if they slack on the Lakers. Come into the game and put them away early.

I still remember this board when we suck. A lot of poster were just hoping to beat the Lakers to alleviate the pain of a losing season. A victory was treated as a championship.

Lakers recent win against the Blazers was good because it shows that we still have to take them seriously and play our game. Hoping to build a comfortable lead and to see a lot more Granger tonight.

I think this game will be way tougher then most think,and I believe CP3 will not let us fail.

It says a lot about how far they've fallen that the Clippers playing PHX or GSW is a bigger, more meaningful game these days.

Should be interesting game I would be all for Blake doing a career high but a blowout would give the bench needed time.

Blake monster slam over Pau again will really make my night.

Echoing the other posters here, a perfect game will be having a great start out of the gate, minimize the threes, more bench minutes especially for Granger, and no ejections. I have a feeling they might use that to get one of our key player out.

Since they beat Portland JUST a few days ago, it's like I said, on any given night ANY NBA team can beat ANY OTHER! We have to take this game SERIOUSLY, OR WE CAN LOSE,....

Unlikely. These days, if Gasoft sees Griffin heading to the rim, he runs away screaming like Little Miss Muffett.

I think their we need to be careful with Kent Bazmore and marshon brooks I've always liked marshon that kid has potential Bazmore has been playing well

Just be wary of Wesley Johnson, and Xavier Henry imo, Johnson made the game winner against Portland.

Bunch of streaky wing players auditioning for next year.

Play them tight so they don't get a rhythm going and trust DJ to man the back line if they blow by. Blake will have to box out Jordan Hill, but in the end team ball will win out. Trust the system.

Good. Last 13 games DJ has shot +60% from the FT line. Keep it up DJ.

I hope someone dunks on Bazemore. I don't like that guy at all!!

I agree, but it's just too bad that we don't have any guys on our team that could pull of a posterizing dunk. Oh well.

Jordan Hill has been warming up the bench. Looks like MDA likes Sacre now. They're in tank mode I believe.

With the inconsistent playing time, being thrown under the bus by MDA couple times, and expiring deal anyway why Kaman did not demand a buyout? Could of jumped on any team at the least as a 3rd big.

Jordan Hill is out this game. So we should leave DJ & Pau on an island & stay tight on the 3pt line. My only concern is Blake having to guard 3pt shooters.

Is Dudley's back well enough to play? He would probably useful as small ball PF this game, chasing shooters on the perimeter, compared to Turkoglu or Davis.

MDA is loving that small ball. Wes Johnson at PF, Blake should eat him alive!

Why, he does a great job of guarding the Perimeter for a big, and the only real consistent threat for the Lakers from "3" is Meeks. then Jordan Farmar.

I didn't say he sucks at it. It's just not his natural role & I'm not sure how it will affect our rotations.

Hope this is a blowout so Granger can get more court time

I know, I'm just Reassuring you that that's never really been that much of an issue. But I think his perimeter defense is the most natural part of his defense, He can get beat off the dribble but he's been good all year at guarding the 3, he and DJ both do an excellent job, probably why they have the #1 3pt defense.

Dan Woike-

"LAC lists Redick (back) as out, Crawford (calf) as day to day and Dudley (back) as a game-time decision. Crawford likely out as of this a.m."

Take the Lakers SERIOUSLY. They are playing like champions. They will give us their best game and we see what they cam do. They are running on pride and courage alone and that's hard to beat. HAT'S OFF.

We need to crush them early and try to neutralize Pau. We need to body him up, play physically and wear him out. Without him they have nothing. Can Big Baby guard Pau better than DJ?

Wow,I didn't realize this was a TNT game,with TNT announcers and TNT refs. This one will be really hard to win.

Trap game, not going to be a blowout. Hope I'm wrong.

With the Lakers defense the Clippers could set a record for points. It's better when the Lakers are a good team and then the Clippers beat them. It means more.

Role reversal. This is their game 7 of the finals this season. Won't be a blow out for sure.

Did you start on the sauce early, toohip?

I'll give you that they have some guys playing hard and showcasing themselves... but champions?

D-League champions maybe, but I'd still take the Rio Grand Vipers -8 against this laker team.

As long as we don't fall completely asleep we should be good. I hope the Clippers are on one tonight, and have their hearts set out on shutting them down.

I saw Dudley may be out. Granger takes his minutes or Doc gives them to Reggie. Clippers get up big and Granger drops 11-15 and I would be really happy

It has nothing to do with the game but Charles just said that the two best teams in the west are the thunder and clippers and he even has us beating the thunder. I think I'm dreaming Barkley just said were the best team in the west!!!!!!! 😱

WoW! What a difference a year makes! Charles Barkley the infamous Clipper Hater was live on TNT and said that the Clippers are the NUMBER 1 in the Western Conference. He said 1.) Clippers 2.) Thunder 3.) Spurs

HEY TNT! it is called a double header. Start your first game in time so it will not INTERFERE with your SECOND game!!!!

I say we give Granger a lot of minutes tonight against one of the worst teams in the NBA. This could be a good tune-up game for him.

He likes to change his mind about us continually. Last season he hated us, then before the start of this season he predicted us playing the Heat in the Finals, and now he's back on the band wagon, again. I bet he'll change his opinion again before the season ends.

Heck, if we are behind at the half he'll proclaim he knew all along we were a fraud,and Blake is soft.

Agreed Doc will try to make up for that New Orleans game he missed. Doc will probably rest Dudley and give Granger his minutes. I have a question? Do the Clippers use their home locker room....
