Despite the distraction of the Donald Sterling comments, the Clippers group will need to focus themselves to the task of hand. The Warriors will likely come out fighting like there is no tomorrow, but the Clippers must respond with poise and crush their hopes of coming back in the series. The guys must rebound, force turnovers and not give away possessions to get this one.

Clippers will need to be focused and determined to win this game and not allow any distraction such as this awful DTS scandal to get in the way. I expect them to win this game. Go, Clippers!

Spot on. We need our game do the talking on the court to try and eclipse all the cr*p off it!

This situation is so unique, pretty impossible to make a prediction. We can't control the referees who will be trying desperately to keep the peace. The one thing we can control is our heads and that will be really tough. Silly frustration fouls and needless technicals could be our undoing. I still think we have a great chance, we are the better team.

Not even excited for this game, just numb. **** you, Sterling!

Don't even know what to expect. We might see a motivated and angry Clippers team blow these guys out, we might see a distracted team quit, hell, maybe both teams will walk off the court and refuse to play after tip-off. I just want the drama to be over.

Clips just need to keep their heads on. Don't be distracted by all this DTS crap, and take all your frustration out on the Warriors.

I expect the Clippers to come out with a furious rage and really take it to the Warriors. I have no idea how this could affect the Clippers play except play in their minds , but it has nothing to do with basketball so it should not affect them that much. I know if anyone is able to have these guys mind on straight its Doc Rivers.

This is a unique situation so it is tough to predict its effect. It would be a shame that after all these bad years, when the Clippers finally get a contending squad, this has to happen.

I hope the team will play with fire until we reach our goal I don't care if Doc will resign after this season and cp3 and blake will demand for a trade, I'll just wait until DTS will die before watching again this team. I'm sure warriors will take advantage of this situation.

Does anyone know if Sterling has UNTREATABLE DISEASE?

Calm down. If you honestly expected the NBA to instantly punish him without going through an investigation, I don't know what to tell you.

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAH good one BlueJays! You definitely don't like drama at all! No, not you!

Sterling thing has no effect on this game... it might in game 5 when there is a weird tension in the stadium. What we have to worry about here is the inferior team with their backs against the wall, since they & their clown coach will pull out all the stops to try to win, which means even more dirty play than we saw in the last game. Expect hard, dirty fouls from Green etc. Once again, I expect GSW to get off to an early lead but if we can weather that storm, we'll be fine. We're just the better team so it's going to take some weird situation such as the Griff game 1 foul trouble for these chumps to have a chance.

Strategy wise, I actually would suggest doing the opposite of our current "double Stef at all costs" and just let him score 50 while locking down on everyone else. This is what Pop did last year and it worked fine, and of course they wouldn't expect it and Clown Jackson wouldn't be able to adjust on the fly. However, I don't expect this to happen as this is a case of "go with what works" and that's fine too.

I think our guys come together as one and ready to play tomorrow. I think we get the win. These guys want nothing more than to be CHAMPIONS....I doubt Doc let their minds wander off and forget the task at hand.

And besides they are playing to WIN a CHAMPIONSHIP for themselves NOT for the racist owner.

Lets Go Clips!

I support the players and coaches NOT the owner #FDonald

You are very dramatic. Shocked

The league can't do anything until they verify that its Sterling on the tape and then they can act. Sterling is also a lawyer himself and and if Silver acts prematurely and does not cross his T's and dot his I's the tight billionaire will take advantage afterall that is how got to be a billionaire in the first place.

Silver needs to find out exactly what he can and can't do before he meets with Sterling and hopefully he is able to convince Sterling to remove himself and if not he brings down the full force of the league on him.

I know, I know... I'm just really pissed off and very scared about the future of this team.

I can't blame you for being scared. Clipper fans know of Donald Sterling but act like he doesn't exist. We don't speak about him because of his history and he is our biggest embarrassment. Same with the NBA, and they made no attempt to do anything about him. Us fans can only lament and accepted to just wait until he dies. We all knew of his character but just didn't think it could potentially ruin the recent success.

I mean honestly this is a big deal considering the NBA cares about image.

Who is "scared"? Lol. Oh yeah the fear mongers would love to make it seem very "scary" huh? My goodness the situation is just so dire, so desperate, and so uncertain. What would anyone ever do now? Woe is me.

I'm sorry, but when you have players saying they'll never come here because of DTS, draft prospects begging not to be drafted by us, agents saying they'll tell their players not to sign here, Doc saying he's not comfortable working here, the league investigating, etc., it's a very scary situation for our future. I can't imagine we'll be able to keep anyone once their contract is up if Sterling is still around, starting with Collison this summer... and good luck finding anyone good to replace him, because nobody with an iota of talent wants to associate with our pig of an owner in this day and age.

..this may be corrected with a harsh and decisive action by the league. As i said beofre as Silver's first reign he is looking to set a precedent. I have a feeling if this tape is authentically Sterling he is gone

Okay, why don't we just see how it all turns out, whether the sky all falls down, or the situation gets resolved before it gets anywhere close to that.

In the meanwhile, please keep the DTS talk & your fear mongering in the other thread. You want to talk about game 4, go right ahead here.

Durant with the disappearing act against the Griz again just like last season. lol

Durant begging for fouls. Can't handle the physicality and is shocked that he isn't getting his normal soft fouls. He is getting destroyed by Tony Allen when Paul torched him last season. Its embarrassing considering his size and length and considering he is the "best" in the league.

I would love to see the Clippers take on the Grizzlies again. But of course, one game at a time.

Playing Memphis again would be epic, but this series is far from over with their shooters.

I think the Clippers are going to play with a fire in them. With anger, but hopefully they use that anger in a positive way: I wouldn't be surprised if the Clippers win by 20+

OKC will win in 7, IMO.... which is fine, tired of facing Memphis and actually think we have a better chance of beating OKC than them.

Damnit, I think we have a better chance against Memphis. We should have beaten them last year but got overconfident and injured. Not this year. And IMO we are much better and they are a bit worse.

OKC... that's a toss-up.

Some say this is the worst timing, but in a way we are so lucky that we have a tight-knit team led by Doc, CP3 and Blake during a time like this. I think they come out and play hard tomorrow. Though, I am interested to see if they make a silent statement/gesture, possibly alongside the Dubs, to send a message to the general public against racism. They shouldn't have to, but I it'll be interesting to see.

Anyways, back to basketball. I wonder if the Mark Jackson is finally going to double team Blake, because if not, he is going to continue to beast. If the double does come, I'm looking for Blake to really show off his passing skills like we've seen throughout the season. Matt Barnes may get a lot of open looks tomorrow, and if he still isn't hitting them, Granger may be a good answer to this.

If Barnes starts nailing 3's, GS is toast. Hopefully his injured toe doesn't affect him any worse. He's due for a good shooting day.

Agree. We need cp3, JJ, Barnes and Crawford to get rest!
