The Clippers (45-20) have won eight in a row while averaging 115.5 points and continued their surge Monday by beating Phoenix 112-105 behind 37 points from Griffin. "He is one of those players that you can't stop," teammate Danny Granger told the Clippers' official website. "He had a jump shot going on tonight, and a lot of times he just bullies people. Push them under the rim and lay the ball up or dunk it. That makes some people mad, when you have a force like him." Griffin, who had 22 points in the first quarter, shot 14 of 16. The four-time....

Hopefully they don't explode from the 3 point line.. If we can stop that and there dumb bush league garbage we should be fine.

If we win tonight, I think we'll get that number 2 seed. It's going to be an exciting finish for positioning but we'll ultimately end up with the number 1 seed. We just have to take care of business and keep winning. Our remaining schedule is very favorable.

Yesterday was very good for us. Houston and Portland lost last night. Creating a lot of separation. Then OKC and Spurs won as well creating separation from us as well. Also I shared this on another thread....

Wouldn't this game be a perfect game to start granger?

That would force klay on Barnes and iguadala on granger.

That would allow CP3 to dominate curry

I think you have to keep Barnes there until he cools off. He could be playing this game with a chip. I say ride the hot hand. I would even argue Moving Barnes to the 2 to put on Klay and give Granger the start at SF.

Unless Jamal is back to night.

Another game that Barnes and Granger combo should really be looked at because of size. Klay will look to shoot over and post DC the advantage of speed may help us some.

Yeah that's what I meant, to start both Banres and Granger. It would eliminate the size advantage they have on us

Klay is going to be posting up Collison any chance he gets if he ends up guarding him

I think we should just worry more about imposing our will. If they start falling in love with their jump shot whether it's over DC or not I can live with it. You can live with DC on Iggy on the perimeter and Barnes on Klay too, I don't have a problem going big with Barnes and Granger just worry about what depth there is off the bench after that. If DC makes Klay run after him the whole game I think it takes away from his offense.

^DC would have to commit to running off the ball in hco, he's fast but he waits at the 3pt line a lot.

The Warriors are on a 5 game win streak. Are we a trap game for them? lol I sure hope so! Tonight will be a tough game, I hope we come out on top.

I feel a win coming tonight. Let's keep this momentum going. Let's hope Granger has another big night.

we need to exhaust Curry early since he has a nagging injury. DC needs to lock down jordan crawford, he has been a spark for them off the bench recently.

I think it'll come down to their bench vs our bench

Steve Blake

Jordan Crawford

Harrison Barnes

Draymond Green

Jermaine O'neal

vs

DC

Crawford

Granger

Turk

Big baby

^ I'd put DC on Curry. He's been an absolute pest to opponents' best guards for a while now.

I really want to see Big Baby tussle with Jermaine O'neal. That is not a basketball wish, I just really like MMA and as bad as some heavyweights look it can get the most exciting in a short amount of time.

I just hope we cream them to the point of they are having nightmares about facing us in the playoffs.

can we borrow Tony Allen for 1 game to drop kick Draymond Green. How about a Ron Artest elbow?

Why isn't this game on national TV? We have to sit through all this Lakers and Knicks crap but they won't show the biggest rivalry in Basketball?

Can I just say I love Danny Granger? Damn....I pray this dude resigns in the offseason! but for now I'm more worried about us winning our championship this year!!

We can beat anybody right now, just one team I would hate to play because of their experience and IQ would be the Spurs, but to be honest with you I still feel like we can take them in a 7-game series. With DG and big baby anything is possible, this is the first time the Warriors will see our new and improved roster, filled some holes and i think we will legit slap the sh*t out of them tonight.

No offense, but Clippers-Warriors isn't the biggest rivalry in basketball right now.

At this point, that would probably be Thunder-Heat.

I hope Clippers win tonight. I hate the Warriors. It would be great if the Clippers could whip the Warriors' collective arses early in the game.

With the Warriors it may be "Pick Your Poison". If Klay and Curry both go off they're unbeatable. They'll spread the defense wider than (add your own metaphor). Klay is big and can shoot over a small guy. Steph will get his unless we give a concerted effort to keep the ball out of his hands like Miami did to us the first game.They trapped CP every time he got the ball. We can't rely on his ankle giving out. Barnes/Granger may not be a bad idea to shut down Klay. Hold him to 10 and not let Steph go insane. Easier said than done. I don't think they can significantly hurt us defensively if BG continues to make his shots. The glitch was gone. Mon. Their guards can't keep up with Collison. Good things either way. The main thing is to shut down one of their shooters. Also if Jamal is back ?? and Baby can hit a jumper (or at least a tip toe shot) he can seriously open the paint. Collison could destroy them.

This won't be a cake walk. Unless we stop the slop we can lose

If Jordan Crawford is hitting his shots the Warriors will be very tough to be.

We don't like the Warriors, because Honestly, they beat us a few times, Mark Jackson, or as the forum calls him Mark Jackass was talking trash to Blake on the court, ON COURT, cause Blake was trying to hurry up and he moved Mark out of his way, and cause Bogut is a low and dirty player that instigated a fight with Blake to throw him out the game, that's pretty much it!

Repped High Quality Post

Listen, you may not be a bad guy. In the past we have had even Grizzlies fans join here, and I'll explain it to you like I did them. We don't like the Warriors or Grizzlies because their players will play dirty. The dirty play by Bogut in particular is a good example. Our star player gets ejected and the result is a win for you guys. Then Mark Jackson is poping off at the mouth to Blake in earlier games this season, and the ever delightful Bazemore dancing like a clown and waving the towel towards our bench. Yeeah, your team is a good bunch of guys and there's no reason we should hate the Warriors. You're more than welcome here provided you're not trolling, but please don't be surprised that we aren't exactly fans of the Warriors

Yeah nobody here is hateful vs Curry, Thompson, or Lee... only hate is towards the dirty players that resort to other tactics to take opposing stars out.

I don't doubt it's part of the gameplan to try and provoke a tech from Griffin using Bogut plus a bench guy.

Your team is a bunch of preening, cheapshotting douchebags who cheat to win, none worse than your coach Mark Jackass. That's why.

We don't really need Dudley anymore, but it's good to hear he's available in case of an injury to one of our other forwards.

I don't hate Warrior's fans ... I hate the warriors players... well... to be honest I don't like 1 player and 1 coach... Bogut and your coach are terrible. Curry is awesome.. Klay can shoot and I don't dislike him. Lee is kind of a baby but I don't hate him. But... If you want to talk about fans... Laker fans take the cake.

My hate

#1 Bogut and Mark Jackson

#2 Memphis Grizzlies

#3 Laker fans

But I dislike Bogut and Jackson the most.. Oh .. and the idiot bench jumping around waving their towels like amped up monkeys
