Got some breathing room from Portland. I really think that with our schedule and the way the top teams in the East and West are playing, home court throughout the playoffs is a real possibility.

I don't know why everyone is so scared to face certain teams. Our goal is to get the highest seed possible and face who ever the fluke we face.

This. We have the depth, determination, and multi-dimensionalism to take down any team we face. In a regular season game, we all hate playing against Memphis and GS because they have a reason to put special effort into the game. In the playoffs, this is how all teams play. Even though almost all the lower seeds of the West just rain threes, we have the league best opponent 3pt%, thus, good matchups all around. No Clipper fan should be scared of any team not named Spurs/Thunder.

Houston going into OKC next... that's win/win for us.

I said that too. What is that 4 losses in a row? Evan Turner the last 5 games with the Pacers has averaged 7.4 points and 2.2 rebounds in 21.8 minutes Danny Granger the last 3 games....

There are a lot of John Hollinger's in this world that just look at the stats a player produces and won't think twice about how chemistry and leadership play a HUGE part in that persons ACTUAL production.

It was a mistake to trade Granger for 2 reasons:

1) He was a leader and mentor for the youngin's like PG and Lance.

2) They knew he was going to be waived and signed by a contender, which could be problematic if Granger meets them in the Finals.

Guess we're gonna have to beat Houston ourselves at the end of this month. And these next 2 home games are almost must wins.

The last 3 games I attended were...

San Antonio 2 seasons ago when Gomes threw that horrible inbounds pass that assisted Kawi's game-tying 3.

Memphis at the beginning of this season when we were really flat & lost the game, & Matt Barnes.

Atlanta last night.

Therefore I've decided I'm bad luck & I will not go to a game for the rest of this year, maybe next.

Thanks for nothing, Suns. I'm resigning myself to the fact that we'll be playing the annoying-ass Warriors in the first round. Easily our biggest chance of being bounced in the first round and giving the haters even more ammunition.

The Warriors are annoying , but its all good. Andre Iguodala shoots 60% from free throw line and Andrew Bogut shoots worse than DJ. Both of those players start. Put them on the line. Golden....

I wouldn't worry about match-ups. All the Clippers can do is win against whatever team is put in front of them, regardless of their strengths and weaknesses. Just win, baby.

And this is part of the reason why I'm not as scared of the Thunder as I am of the Spurs.

We should all be rooting hard for the Bulls. They have all 3 teams above us coming in over the next week.

If the Clippers could some how play the Suns or the Mavericks then they have a great chance of having a short series which gets more time to rest.

So hard to predict who we are facing but ill try.

1.sas

5.gsw

6.por

7.mem

8.dallas

2,3,4 is up for grabs. The only team with a relatively easy first round is sas, unless they collapse and we stay hot and grab the 1 seed, were not having an easy series.

Since we get helped either way from HOU/OKC, I'm siding with Lil' B on this one:

Going to go ahead and say we should try to avoid the Spurs as much as possible. They are thrashing the Bulls on the road and broke the record for most 1st quarter points against them in the first.

Finally! Now we're the third seed. Even if we lose tomorrow ( Winning), we'll still be in 3rd based on the season series with the Rockets.

Do you want to see the warriors in the first round? Sounds like a recipe for Bogut to do something dirty

Honestly if were healthy the Warriors don't scare me at all. Preferably though I want 2nd seed and I want to face the Mavs but the Griz could potentially grab the 7th seed so that might not happen.

I think we can beat the Warriors and the Griz if healthy. The Griz sacre me because they might injure out players though.

Damn. I wanted OKC to lose so as to get us a little closer to that 2nd seed.

My luck has been different... Until I moved to Denver.

1st game ever: Clippers vs Lakers when Corey Maggette went toe to toe with Kobe and won.

2ND game: Lebron's first game against the Clippers. I think Drobniak was the Clippers leading scorer. Clips won but it was a very ugly game.

Glen Rice's game winner and another Clippers/Lakers match up.

My luck has changed since I moved to Denver. In person, I saw the Nuggets snap the 17 game winning streak along with Randy Foye's game winner when I was 2 rows away from the Clippers bench. In fact, if you see a replay of the game winner and look closely, you can see me curling over in agony as the shot went in. Hopefully my luck turns back around this coming Monday.

Your post reminded me of this actually:

Think of the Joker as the Grizzlies lol. It is starting to seem like the Clippers and Grizzlies will butt heads in the playoffs for years to come.

Kinda starting to hope Portland keeps diving I kinda hope we get them in the first rd... If they fall to 6 or 7 after starting out so cocky I kinda think they'll limp in to the playoffs, & they're not experienced or a real physical team so we won't get beat up the way the Grizz always do to us every year.
