Closing in on a second straight division title, the Clippers are chasing Oklahoma City for the West's second spot but sit just a game ahead of fourth-place Houston. In the second game of a five-game trip Thursday, Los Angeles rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to snap a two-game road slide with a 109-103 win over Dallas. Chris Paul had 31 points after missing all 12 of his shots in a 98-96 loss at New Orleans a night earlier. Blake Griffin finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds, while DeAndre Jordan scored 16 with 15 boards. "We knew it was going to be....

No matter how you slice it, tonight is a huge game. 3/4 seed could be decided tonight.

^^ Even if we lose (fat chance) , We'd still have the 3rd seed. Rockets have to end up one game ahead in the standings (end of season)for them to get the 3rd seed from us. It's great benefiting from winning the season series.

CP3 needs to be aggressive, Lin can't check him. DJ should get in a track meet with Howard and his dodgy ankle. Blake make a concerted effort to grab boards, because he'll get his points anyway. Funnel Harden into the midrange where he's least damaging. Get back in transition.

Do those things, and we should pull out the W.

No Dwight Howard today for the rockets!

We have to come out aggressive today! I expect Blake to have a huge game. We need to get back to our dominating offense and defense

^ Collison has actually done a great job on Harden so far this year. He's spent a good deal of time guarding him, and Harden's numbers are awful (by his standards).

Clippers without Reddick ( most likely ) and without Granger ( hamstring ) Rockets without Beverly ( knee ) and Howard ( ankle ) No One! I SAID NO ONE! On this Rockets team can guard CP3 ,unless the throw length at him, or Blake. Chris confidence took a major boost after the Dallas game. He should come out really aggressive. Look For Blake and DJ on the post up against smaller defenders like Terrence Jones. They may throw Asik at Blake The biggest blow tonight for the Rockets isn't Dwight, its Beverly. Dwight missing a game is okay because they have Asik behind him. Harden....

Kind of disappointed Howard isn't playing. With only around 10 games left, We need good competition to build up experience and confidence for playoffs.

The Rockets are still a really really good team. Lin can go off any night for 30 and Asik is a starting Center in this league.

I kinda prefer Beverly to play because he can't hold a candle to CP3 on defense and he has no offense so it neutralizes him.

Hypocrites. They say that OKC fans are classless for saying Beverly got what he deserved(karma) then they say **** like I hope we take that flopper CP3 out.

I hope we meet them in the playoffs cause we would crush them.

Most fans of their teams think that most other teams/players flop/play more dirty more then their own...fandom at it's best, LOL.

I won't deny the fact that CP3 and BG are big time floppers especially CP3. That Is why I rarely call out other players for flopping. Only recently have I realized how dirty of a player BG was but I consider that a good thing tbh as long as he is not intentionally injuring players like Bowen.

Wait, how is Blake a Flopper? When was the last time he flopped?

@EricPatten: Kevin McHale says the Rockets have allowed Blake Griffin to be "too comfortable" in previous 3 games

Make your FT's Blake cause there should be plenty of opportunities. Make 'em pay.

Repped High Quality Post

Chris Paul has one flopping warning from the NBA this season. Blake has zero. Harden was fined for that blatant dive against Blake because it was his second incident of the season.

That game was November 9th... the season was only 10 days old!

Rockets fans are the last ones who should be calling ANYBODY floppers.

And for the record, Blake has never gotten a flopping warning ever so I'm not sure why people insist he's a Flopper.

I think cause he tries to sell contact sometimes but he doesn't flop

Agreed. The reason the NBA doesn't fine or warn Griffin because he accentuates actual contact not just accentuating non-contact like Harden or Durant or other notable floppers

I'm not optimistic that we will win / Asik is a better post defender in my opinion that dwight howard and Lin is better offensively than "Bev" - plus we lost in New Orleans despite all their inactive players

I have a feeling James is gonna have a huge game against us tonight. It just seems like he is due for one vs us.

Clippers can't overlook this team just because Dwight and Patrick Beverely are out. Clippers should come out even more focused to get this W.

James swinging his elbows makes it kinda hard to contest his layups sometimes
