Can you guys agree with me that tonight could be a big statement game for us if we can get this W tonight? I know it's early, but with a victory over OKC (who everyone is considering to be the team to beat) can really put us on the map. Can you imagine all the media buzz tomorrow after a W tonight!!! Can't wait for this game tonight!

yes you are 100% correct ,this game will be a measuring stick on which the clippers will be looked at . without a doubt the clippers need the come out a ball of fire and maintain that for the complete game ." I believe this will be the matchup for western conference finals !!! clippers need to focus for the complete gm . and please make the free throws !!! go clips !!

So, now we can really trace the demise of the franchise back to even before Sterling ever bought it. Larry O'Brien just automatically declared three of the Clips' top players from the '78-79 squad free agents (including arguably the best player in franchise history), and screw them in the process.

I guess David Stern's sending of Chris Paul to the Clippers was a mea culpa of sorts, even 32 years later.

No question dude. Denver is one of the best teams in the league at home and they were the hottest team in the NBA until last night. They actually played very well and still lost to us.

Now tonight we play the best in the west on a back to back. They've been resting for two days and we just had an emotional hard fought win last night 1000 miles away.

If we win tonight, the media will start talking about the Clips as legit western conference contenders....how can you not? We beat the two best teams in the west in back to backs? We've beaten Miami, Lakers, Griz, Portland, Mavs, Rockets. 12-6 record with the 3rd toughest strength of schedule so far this year. It's pretty obvious this team is one of the elite in the league already.
