Thunder-Clippers Preview By BETH HARRIS Posted May 08 2014 10:40PM LOS ANGELES (AP) Jamal Crawford got emotional in accepting his NBA Sixth Man award and, like Kevin Durant this week, it may have buoyed the Los Angeles Clippers in what has been a turbulent playoffs so far. Crawford didn't cry or talk as long as Durant did when the Oklahoma City star picked up the league's MVP award. But he thanked everyone he could think of on Thursday, especially his teammates and Clippers coach Doc Rivers for keeping them together in the wake of owner Donald Sterling's racist comments that led to his lifetime....

I think this is a must win to keep the series on track.

A good emphasis on high energy D should set the right tone.

We need Blake to be his Beastly self! DJ also must rage!

This game is the series, IMO. If Blake doesn't show up and play like a superstar, the team might as well start reserving their tee times at the golf course now.

It's weird but the a good barometer for how the game is going to go is Djs intensity the first few possessions. If he is hype it seems to affect the team in a positive way. When he is lollygaggin the

whole teams energy seems to lollygag. I see this as another blowout for the clippers.

I don't see Durant and westbrick going off again

It call comes down to foul trouble. If our big 3 can stay out of receiving early fouls then that gives them more room to be aggressive especially BG and DJ. CP is aggressive with or without foul trouble but for this game we'll need him for 38-40 minutes

The only problem is that's up to the refs. As we have seen the refs can call bullshit fouls

all they want and get no consequences for using their power to affect the game.

We need the bigs aggressive and Blake attacking. This game will be determined by if Blake shows energy on both ends.

Blake better pull his head out his ass and stop playing so timid. CP needs to stay aggressive, and not get in foul trouble as our offense falls apart when he's not in. Hopefully Doc emphasized rebounding as well, since we're getting destroyed on the glass.

Let's see Blake and DJ take advantage of this home court. They need to step up and be the dominant duo that was evident in Game 1's blowout.

Clippers for the WIN!

Let's go Clippers! We fought hard for Home Court advantage, let's fight just as hard to keep it.

I want to see our best effort from all our players.

I almost want to try Willie on Westbrook when CP3 needs rest... RW destroying Collison was a huge reason we lost game 2, DC was a -11, he was helpless... Gotta fix that & our bigs have to show up.

I would play Collison less minutes. He really isn't that useful when he is on the court especially if he is guarding Westbrook. We need to put a wing on him.

Clippers -4 tonight. The very important 3rd game winner gives them a very high historical probability of winning the series. Go Clipps.

'IF' we can get these 2 home games we will certainly show we are good enough to close out the series

Yep he just posted him up and scored easily on consecutive possessions. It was real ugly.

I wonder why the Clippers havent tried doubling the mis-match postups? I mean if you double with DJ , because he doesn't have that much area to travel. They swing it out or take a....

Might sound crazy, but the way WB was playing and just posting up and dominating Collison, id consider bringing Dudley in at the 2 when Redick sits or even Granger. Either of them can potentially play the 2. We need weight and length to stop Westbrook.

Doc will make adjustments. I am not too worried.

Yes he will. Blake will show up tonight as well. We are winning this game. Better teams always prevail and we are it. No KD needed. We have a CP3 and a BG

I hate to say anything. But do we realize the Clips Big 3 each had a foul within 1 minute of Game 2 and Chris had 2! I'm not worried about these games , but....

Huge Game 3 on the line. Must-win game but I am confident in Blake and Staples and CP, etc. to pull this game out for us. Go Clips!!

Crawford is going to play well tonight. He's going to make up for his bad shooting night in game 3. When JJ and Jamal are both on fire no one can beat us.

Dudley on westbrick would be one of the biggest disasters of the 21st century

CP3's first foul was ridiculous. Westbrook ran into the ref, but CP got the foul for just being in the area? I expect some good make up calls tonight.

I just got some new Clipper gear. They better win tonight. I'm very superstitious with my Clipper clothes lol. It has absolutely no effect on the game, but it's fun always to believe.

Hopefully that means he's made adjustments to make things easier on Blake, as well as finally telling him to mix it up with his face-up game instead of trying to back down his man every time.

So let's be honest. Did anyone actually predict two blow outs in the first two games? I thought these games would be much closer. With that said, let's keep this trend going and embarrass OKC tonight. I hope Staples Center goes crazy tonight. I can't see there being as OKC fans as there were GSW.

I bet some of the Lakers "fans" who wore Curry jerseys last series will show up at Staples in their brand new Durant jerseys. roll
