Blake has to play elite basketball like he did vs Hawks and Knicks.

CP3 alone can't do it. Blake has to beast and get Gasol and ZBO in foul trouble. He's out only offensive threat down low so if he can get them in foul trouble or wear them down, the less effective they'll be on D.

Blake needs to limit his MidRange jumpshooting unless he is totally OPEN. He needs to post up, back his down and work from there.

And **** it I am wearing my Clippers jersey Anyone else Ready to fight for it? Ha Haha (thats how much people hate us which was why I was hesitant to wear it )

randolph should be guarding blake - its imperative that blake draws a few fouls early.

the grizz have superb zone defense, so we need cp's floater in the paint and hot shooting from foye (and nick young from the corner).

MUST start off strong.

according to @RyanBurrESPN

Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro says that Chris Paul "will be limited" in the Clippers' Game 1 matchup with Memphis.

Ugh, not good news. We're going to see if a less than 100% CP3 can win us a series.

Healthy or not, we still need the other guys like Caron, Mo, Foye, and Young to play well.

CP3 at 70% is better than 90% of all PGs in the league. We need out bench to step up big and Blake to beast it!

CP3 in limited minutes is probably a case of exaggeration. CP3 was going to play in the last game. While I think this is much ado about nothing, it is more precautionary than anything else.

...not! So far getting the usual boos, you sucks, and we're gonna kick your @$$ comments. But I keep getting called a bandwagon fan. Over and over again. The best came from a guy wearing a brand new lookingTony Allen Jersey. Have yet to see any other Clipper faithful. We may be a rare breed tonight. We had BETTER win! I will smug the hell out of Beale street after we do.

Almost game time guys. We've done all we can do to support this team. The doctors have done all they can do to speed up cp3's recovery. I'm sure the coaching staff has done all they can do to prepare this team. All that's left is for our players to go out there and play basketball. No need to make anything complex or complicated, just go out there, hustle, give effort, and play ball.

"We chatted, Ralph and I. Then former Memphian T.J. Simers told Vinny Del Negro that I ripped Ralph. Stunned, he was."

is it really that hard to shoot free throws? why do some players knock them down like they're nothing and some struggle so much (blake)?

Haha my same exact concerns! DJ is going to get murdered by Gasol and VDN is going to get utterly humiliated by Hollins. Let's hope I'm wrong. BTW I personally welcome all Grizzly fans to CTB. Let's all keep it classy and respectful so fans of both teams can discuss the game here. Let's go Clippers!

If 2006 feeling again means game 7 of semis I'll be a very happy man. I think this is just the beginning for us. Blake and CP3 need a full summer camp+training camp to build chemistry. Bledsoe badly needs another training camp+summer to come out a recognized elite defender like Avery Bradley.
