A win against the formidable Utah Jazz should do wonders for the Clippers. If they play good solid perimeter D and hit open shots the Clippers will have a great chance of winning.

Who's gonna be missing in action tonight?? anyone know? hopefully Kaman is back.

I'd like to see Singleton match up against Boozer. Wonder how it would go?

Anyways...this would be a big win. Play your hearts out or fall again. that simple.

Looks like Kaman will be out again, and Maggette and Thomas will not play. Hopefully Sam will though.

That was just *awful* defense. How in the world can you let the opposing point guard make layup after layup in your house? What kind of defense is that? Is Deron Williams that much quicker than Shaun Livingston? And once D-Will gets by Livingston there was absolutely no help defense- guys remained stuck to their own men unwilling to risk the foul or risk their guy getting an open shot. That is NOT team basketball. You got to go help, you got to go for the block, you got to go for the hard foul.

On offense there was just no consistent outside shooting. If you don't consistently make your open J's you're not going to win many games in the NBA.

Tonight you saw how the team played without Sam Cassell- they were pretty much like the Clippers of 04-05 (or even 02-03)- a below .500 team mediocre at best. Corey Maggette + Shaun Livingston for Allen Iverson sounds like a great trade for the Clippers right now....

That's it!! The Clippers need to do whatever it takes to get Iverson...before this season is lost! There is a great article on ESPN.com about Iverson and how it makes sense for the Clippers to get him. Check it out.

Now the losses are more embarrassing because they are starting to be at home...and it hurts.We are going down without brakes...The starters have played a lot of minutes but it seems that it doesn't work.That happens when you play without your boss in the court:Cassell.At least semms that Kaman had a good game.isn't it?

Wouldn't it be neat to see how Iverson would be with the Clips. I just dont think a new player is the answer. Plus it doesnt seem like the Clippers are a strong contender anymore to get AI. but you never know.

Kaman did only okay because he had a ton of turnovers (5!). He did have some nice dishes to a cutting Livingston for dunks. EB had a nightmarish game with 6(!!) turnovers. He got 20 but it was kind of misleading because he got a lot of those points late when the Clippers were already down big. He also only had 4 rebounds. I suspect that he will bounce back and do much better Friday.

That was a very interesting article- I didn't realize Iverson was such a "tough" hombre. I looked at his stats this season and he's shooting only ~41% (~21% from deep) and averaging like 4.4 turnovers. But if he does come to the Clippers I think he will help in terms of brining in even more "swagger" and toughness + determination to the team. With Sam out the Clippers don't really have that on court leader right now. Hopefully Sam will return- soon!
