Scary game- the guys better come out focused and fighting in order to get the W.

Yeah, this is a scary game that. I believe that this game can actually be a deciding factor in where we land in the standings. If we have a dominant win and set the tone for the road trip we will climb to the 2 spot. If we win in a nail biter or a semi-close game I think we will maintain in the same spot. If we lose in anything other than a nail biter, then Houston can make up some ground and possibly push us down (which the tie breaker between Houston and us could be our saving grace).

I know there are other factors, and that this game can be a blow out loss that wakes the team up; but I am really concerned about this game and this road trip in regards to seeding.

I'll take an ugly one point win over a well played but close 3 point loss, lol!

Blake man handled Davis last time. Definitely don't see that happening again.

The rivalry begins.

I'm apprehensive about this game too. The bench hasn't played all that well the past few games, but I hope Jamal gets his groove back and all the rest of the bench plays better. This is a winnable game. Anthony Davis is going to be a major factor (he's probably wanting to avenge his poor performance the last time he played against the Clips) and it'll take monster Blake to do his thing to squash AD down.

Make this 3 in a row, Clippers!

Tyreke Evans has been playing very well we need to limit his dribble drive. Jordan and Griffin have to work the glass twice as hard to limit Davis. Big time game and can't have the recent lapses.

five years from now who is more dominant Davis or blake? I feel like love is falling out of discussion

Until anthony davis starts putting in serious work in the weight room his offense will never take the next step. He's too weak

Offense = Blake. Defense = Davis. Overall = Davis (he'll be closer to Blake offensively, then Blake being able to match him defensively).

I know Davis gets a lot of credit as a defensive player, but I'm not convinced he has the size to hold NBA level Bigs. Not saying he can't gain the size, but think he is slightly over rated as a defender due to his blocks. He's a great shot blocker, but don't really see him as a stopper or something like Dwight. He's a solid defender that can get pushed around by bigger Bigs. I don't think he will be as dynamic as a scorer as Blake, this also due to their size. Blake can get through normal big size, where I'm not sure Davis can. They both have the speed, but I'm not sold. I think Griffin will be the better scorer for the entirety of their careers.

Oh and by the way, I really like Davis too. I think he is under rated on the offensive side and over rated defensive side of the ball.

In reality only time will tell.

In 5 years Blake is going to be in his prime and will still be the better overall player. Blake is no scrub on defense, he doesn't get blocks like AD, but he can body up a big player so much better than AD right now. He's too weak and doesn't have a low center of gravity like Blake.

I don't think Davis will ever be as dominant of a scorer as Blake is even right now. I think Blake will be closer on defense than Davis will be to Blake on offense.

That being said, Blake & Davis will be the two best PF's in the league for the next decade and Davis will win multiple DPOY awards and Blake will win multiple MVP's.

As you can see I have high hopes for the PF position.

davis plays more like a center. i always saw davis as an undersized(skinny) 5. never thought of him as a power forward.

Wow, it's so good to see JJ In pregame warmups. I hope he plays soon!

Looks like the Pelicans only have 9 players suiting up tonight due to injuries and illness (Austin Rivers).

Chris Bosh was a stick 8 years ago and he is still a stick so your point has possible validity. I cannot think of any examples of guys that thin bulking too well.

Damn. The Clippers and Heat games went to timeouts at the same exact time. I want to watch both so bad. I'd take the Clips over this somewhat sissy rivalry of the Heat and Pacers

Nice steal by CP for a fast break pass to Matt.

I hope the Clippers continue to focus and put this game away early.

Anyone still think dj has been playing good defense? Blocks don't count when they result in a score anyway

KG and Bosh did fine having that stick like body. Its not a bad thing necessarily. Look at how much KD benefits from ti.

Heat/Pacers isn't even a rivalry, Bron always whoops up on them when it matters. Pacers might not even make it past the second round, the way they've been playing.

Good thing Jamal did that bingo to come within 2. Second quarter for the Clips have been troublesome. I hope it's not the case this time and the bench plays well enough to get a lead and maintain it.

Ok so the game is going to be lost in the next three minutes. Second units have blown ten point leads twice in a row. Now we are down 2

the past few games have exhibited some pretty uninspired basketball from us. Was hoping today would be one of those games where our team dominates... too bad. Maybe we'll pick it up so that we can rest our starters for tomorrow.

This team has played like complacent, lazy garbage for now three games. They need to suck it up and get over the fact that the streak ended, because this is pathetic.

Why isn't Doc creating beneficial mismatches? Playing Baby at C causes a mismatch for us on the defensive end which is the end that really hurts. Why not play him at PF where he causes a mismatch on the offensive end by backing down other smaller PFs and being able to stand solid on D as well. Can't Question Doc though. Probably not showing all his cards. I can respect that. If we knew the solution we'd be coaching right now

With half of New Orleans' team out, there's just no excuse for this. The "playing down to competition" habit has come right back at the worst possible time of the season.

Calm Down Big Fella. I give you the right to rip the team , but atleast wait until the second half preferably the 4th quarter
