http://www.nba.com/games/20141123/LACMEM/gameinfo.html It appears it's going to take something stronger than a widespread stomach virus to slow down the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum. If the first two stops on their seven-game road trip are any indication, the Los Angeles Clippers may be up to the task. The Grizzlies try to improve on the NBA's best record and extend their regular-season home winning streak to 22 on Sunday against a Clippers team that knows a thing or two about leaving Memphis with a victory. A flu bug ripped through the Grizzlies' locker room earlier this week, leading Memphis (11-2) to send five players home early....

This certainly is a big test. What sort of Clipper team will we see today? The Grizzlies are old rivals so the team should be pumped but with the season so far it is pretty hard to tell what your going to get.

A win would be sweet indeed! Come on Clips, lets see some really good ball against a good team.

Yeah, it will be very telling. Hopefully everyone is at full strength in regards to their roster. I want to see how we measure against an elite team because the Miami game did not include Wade and other key players.

A little of that Miami ball-movement would go a long way to nullifying their defense. Let's keep this trip a perfect 3-0.

Ball movement will be an issue, so will the pace. I'm really concerned about them mucking up the game and slowing it down. Also, this team, much like GSW, will use cheap tactics a lot and we need to start preparing for it. Doc is too nice of a coach, but we should start responding in kind when they start playing "prison ball."

Well, that's what they do... try to smother skill with physicality.

On the plus side, we can score much more easily than they can, so as long as we don't let any deficit get into our heads we can always still be in the game.

I expect busy nights from DJ on one end and Jamal on the other, and Blake can't let the Stay-Puft marshmallow man get his putbacks.

I'm a little nervous about this game. Memphis has been rolling so far and it's in their home court where they've been dominating. It would be a great confidence booster if Clips can win this. It certainly would put the naysayers who are saying the Clippers are "pretenders" instead of contenders on mute.

BG needs to be ready to go against Zbo. He will try to get into him as he always has and BG needs to be focused.

Defense needs to be great.

This will be a half court-game, and according to Sir Chuck....we suck. Read somewhere (I think it was on the Miami Thread) that we rank second on plays designated on Half Court Offense.

Fact Check: Clippers rank No. 2 in plays designated as half-court offense (Dallas No. 1). Per Synergy Sports.

Chuck is a little over exaggerated, we don't suck, but we aren't great either, until we start beating top tier teams the clippers is just a mediocre team, anything less than a win today is a failure

Speaking of putbacks, here's a new stat in reference to just that, called the "Boogie Board" stat, LOL. It's a good article about it's leader in that department from last year and this year so far...Demarcus Cousins. But also from that list is the #2 and 3 ranked players who just happen to be going against each other tonight.

Blake vs ZBo is always an epic bruise fest. I really want Blake to school him today!!

I want to see how hawes and big baby perform. First time in a while that we've had quality back ups. Hopefully everyone comes out aggressive.

Hope Blake wears his Kevlar jersey, shorts and jock today,not they the Jizzlies are dirty or anything,in fact they are worse then that. Dirt gets insulted if you compare it to the Griz.

I want to smash them in the mouth. I have a good feeling clippers are back better than ever.

The X factor is Tony Allen. IMO best wing defender in bball. He tends to neutralize Crawford. I want to see Jcross playing more facilitater this game if his shot ain't falling

So far, Grizzlies are a dominant force, particularly Gasol. Clippers gotta step it up.

Dj tries to double Beno? Gasol left all alone for the mid-range.

Oh, Blake. You need to attack the basket instead of passing or turning it over. Dang.

BG hits 3 in a row and then turns over 2 in a row. Again, odd.
