The Pacific Division champion Clippers are looking to continue their impressive surge, which started with the victory over the Thunder two months ago. Since then, they've reeled off 18 wins in 21 games while averaging 110.8 points. "Our whole message is to worry about ourselves," forward Blake Griffin said. "We know who we are. We just want to sharpen the things we do." The Clippers, who lead the league with 107.8 points per game, looked primed for a postseason run Sunday, routing the Los Angeles Lakers 120-97 while hitting 56.6 percent from the floor and 10 of 19 from 3-point range.

Yes it should be. They are on the second game of a back to back so we may have the edge.

That technically should not be a problem for OKC.

Westbrook didn't play yesterday. Their starters didn't play in fourth quarter. It is like they didn't really play.

With that being said, our guys have to be ready to take it to them regardless.

Prediction: FT35 shoots more free throws than our entire team and we still win.

I hate how most national televised games involve at least 1 team that just played the previous night. Rarely get to see elite teams playing at full strength.

Would be great if Granger returned before hand. Jamal needs his rest that injury keeps returning. Huge game looking forward to the match up. Team could be a little rusty with layoff.

Yeah, I wanted to see that match up. This is going to be a great game. If we win, that 2 seed is in our grasp. If we lose the series is tied, the 2 seed is likely out of reach; but we could rest players that need to heel up (we can't just give up the last few games, but the 3rd seed is likely locked up unless something catastrophic happens).

LOL, two of them think the Clippers are going to win. We're in their fans' heads at least.

"Flake Griffin misses 7 FTs"....yeah but he also won't get 30 or 40 FTs like the human insect will. Weird to see fans of other teams worry about us,great feeling.

won't make a prediction on the win,but I agree with you on the human insect getting more FTs then our team. Especially if we are on any national type of feed.

I'm just glad that they don't have Harden anymore. Not to mention Westbrook who gets the FT line a lot. Those would be the slowest games ever. FTS every 30 seconds is not what I call entertaining basketball.

Should be slow game anyway with where both teams rank at FTA's per game: Clippers 2nd in the league with 28.9 and OKC ranked 8th with 24.8.

The difference is the human insect twirls his arms and a foul is called,or he falls over the air and a foul is called,or he misses a jumer and a foul is called

,our's is because every sum bit*h in the league tries to kill Blake every game

OKC ref protection... However, Perkins is usually the scapegoat for that team... He'll be given 2 quick fouls in the 1st qtr. and sit until late 2nd. Creates balance for KD and Westbrook to be put at the line more the Clippers team.

and we have Holllins. 2 fouls are called on him before he even gets to the scorers table.

Can't wait for this game. This one's definitely going to feel like a playoff game. Even though Jamal was the main reason we won last time, CP3, Blake, DC, and JJ should be enough for us to get the win.

Maybe true, but we get more then our fair share of team fouls called against the opponents as the numbers show. Now If we could only make them at a higher % .

Just as long as he makes them count i don't care. They are gonna draw their way to a lot of fouls. Our team just gotta make sure all the fouls are actual fouls. Wrap them up make it a true foul! I swear okc's coaching staff practice drawing fouls, that is why james harden is so good at it, he is an extension of the thunder after all

Going to be a tough one. I think this should be a good one. I wish Granger was playing. I saw last night how length and size affected Durant against Rudy Gay and Kings. We will....

Going to be difficult to defend Durant without any length. Put Blake on him, I see him as an above average defender this year.

I'd take away the Lakers loss on opening night instead. Same effect on the standings, but also two straight sweeps of the Lakers. Very Happy

Don't understand why OKC can kill the spurs but we can't... we are very similar teams..

Spurs fans ask the same thing about why we can beat the Thunder and they can't. (Their theory seems to be that we're athletic enough to keep up with OKC and they're not.) It really is just a vicious cycle of bad matchups.

Ugh, I hate Ibaka. He's already starting his bullying, but he's got 2 fouls already, lol.
