How will the Clippers do in the upcoming contest vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder. What must the Clippers do earn a victory? Which opposing player(s) should L.A. watch out for? Will the game be first to 110 wins or a half-court struggle?

I honestly like the way we played without Austin hero ball. Although he has been playing well. Just saying.

This team can lose any one player and be okay, with the exception of Teodosic. 8 - 3 when he's played. Not that he's our best player, but we don't have anyone who can do what he does, or even come close. His passing creates player movement and ball movement and that's infectious in the most positive way and irreplaceable.

My favorite thing about playing a team like the Thunder is they haven't quite clicked yet and have a habit of getting in their own way. If we can stay focused on our game plan and execute like we're supposed to, we should be able to force them enough mistakes for us to take advantage.

I'm excited to see how Evans does going up against Westbrook. Not so excited to see how Milos does against him...

Looking forward to this game. Our defenses has to step up. We can't allow 2 of the 3 stars to get hot! (Don't know if Carmelo still falls in the star category, but we can't allow him to get hot either).

Who else can begin to guard Westbrook?

I'm assuming CJ or Jawun will get the task of Westbrook. I would say the Thunder should be tired after playing last night, but they just rolled over the Fakers

Teososic usually struggles against playoff team. Let's see how he plays with Russ or Roberson guarding him.hes the key for us pulling an upset

Thunder have been playing better, but second night of a back to back for them, I like the chances here

We haven't gotten to see too much of him against the better teams in the league, just due to the schedule, so hopefully he can show some solid impact against a pretty good Thunder team.

He is 8-0 with Blake and 0-3 without Blake. Just saying

They played a strong game vs the Lakers yesterday.... hope they are tired out instead of being warmed up.

We're playing well lately. I'm not expecting a win, but a closely contested game would be nice...

Either we play defense and win.

Or we try to trade punches and lose.

Could be one of the game where OKC's big 3 have an off night.

Don't think we can keep up this pace with OKC... this is what I meant when I said exchanging punches.

Good ball movement with BG shooting a three.... I wish the dude was smarter man. Take the ball in and score or pass.

The TWO best players on our team are Lou and DJ (for the current stretch of games).... Let's trade 'em.

DJ has basically already done his scoring share for the game

Williams' ability to finish through contact and off balance is very impeccable

They are moving the ball real well. Our young guys reminds me of the clippers of early 2000s where they would play extra hard on national television. They are pushing the ball and closing out!

Adams should get a T

I was going to say, that has to be a tech on Adams, can't just go chasing guys down like that

Why does BG take the free throw??

It stopped a fast break for us... you gotta T him up after we score or complete the possession.

The run by the bench has kept this one at an even pace. The starters either need to step up, or we need to hope that the bench continues to win when they are on

Once again Doc with the terrible substitutions. He should at least transition one player at a time not all five.

Why is Milo not on the court? Is he hurt?

I'm assuming Milos has some sort of injury

Same stuff as last game. The first unit is bringing no energy what so ever .

Milos injured again won't return, the season from hell continues.

So when we take it inside good things happen.... yet there are possessions we are jacking threes. This team frustrates me.

Milos might not be built for the NBA

If Gallo is... then Milos is not too far off. But I agree that neither are.

Blake is wasting opportunities to dominate with every three pointer he jacks up. He's doing his best impression of an old Austin Rivers out there. Blake kills rhythm and chemistry that the Clippers had finally built.

Milos diet of cheeseburgers for breakfast sure isn't helping either

-take it to the paint Blake!!

Blake Griffin 3pt FG = 1/5

Russ Westbrook 3pt FG = 2/2

And we want to talk about smart basketball.
