Please post your predictions for the game today versus the Detroit Pistons. The guys must do what well to get the win? Which opposing player(s) should L.A. be careful of? Will the game be very high-scoring or defensively-oriented?

Prediction: CLIPPERS over Detroit

To get the win the Clips have to have solid D and some solid transition basketball. Limit the turnovers and make their free throws. DeAndre and Lou have to show up as well.

The opposing player to be worried about is, of course, Blake Griffin. He is going to want to prove something as he rightfully should. Expect some double-teams. Ish Smith is also someone else to watch especially if Milos is guarding. Bullock could show up as well against Gallo.

Let's hope that Tobias and Avery want to show off for the Motor City and SVG. Who knows if Boban will join, or just guard in-bound passes for last second opportunities.

Think it will be high scoring and defensively-oriented. Each team will be about 100. Hoping we hit Lawler's Law first and it stays that way until the win. Avery needs to locks it down and DeAndre should disrupt the paint against the inside passes to Drummond. [color=blue] [/font][/color]

Hopefully we can guard Blake Griffin, a new experience. Smile

I agree with that prediction. I think this is going to be a juicy match up! This has been a really emotionally charged year for this franchise. Every week has brought drama and considering how the trade went down... Blake will get really bad if he loses this game, and there is a lot of thing that can be said to many players to get under each others skin. Let's if everyone keeps their cool in this game.

Should be tough game been watching the Pistons lately. Stanley and Reggie have been a solid defensive energy combo. Really does come down to DJ because their bench is stronger at the moment. If DJ doesn’t care Griffin and Drummond are going to attack like crazy. Galloway/Kennard/Tolliver looked really last game.

The pistons are really playing well in the 4th quarter closing out games strong. Blake has become their focal point on offense so we will need to shut him down. They are becoming a decent 3 point team as well so need to be strong on the perimeter, going to be a tough game. We really need to hit the boards I have a feeling pistons beat us by five

Blake is going to ROAST us. It will be fun to watch. Interested to see how DJ comes out. After TRYING to ship him off, don't think he is too happy with us. But that does not mean he can't be a professional and show up.

I just think BG will be amped (for once in his career - exaggeration) and that he will kill us.

My prediction? DJ gets in foul trouble and then Drummond and BG devour our front court.

Going to be a bittersweet game.

We are going to see BG as he could and should have been here. The only guy who can begin to guard him is Trezl. We will have to double hard and fast. He may score 30. Drummond will make mush of DJ. A blow out. I mentioned this before but BG has been playing bully ball again. Let's see what happens and if he proves me right. He's a spoiled narcissistic child. The only big man we have it the tall guy. We're going to get killed inside. You will see what we should have been. We're screwed.

Exactly! I was hoping for BG to be the guy he's becoming in Detroit. When I realized he wasn't going to be that player here, I knew it was time to part ways. That's why I don't feel bad about this trade. I'm also glad he's out EAST so I can still keep up on him without interfering with my team. Wish you luck buddy,just not today. Smile

Wish he could have extended the winning streak longer but we need to take care of biz, and get out of dodge!

I’m confused. I know we got Houston’s 2018 first round pick in the CP3 deal but everywhere I look for draft order has that pick going to Atlanta... wtf?

Yes, that is only for team picks, not traded picks. Looks at where Houston is at, and that is ours.

We traded Houston's pick to Atlanta so they would take on Jamal Crawford's contract. We can't trade this year's pick because we traded next year's pick for Doc Rivers when he came here Smile

We might get blown out tonight. Blake, Drummond, and Ish have been playing out of his mind

Well I hope no one gets hurt trying to prove the other team wrong. Blake can let his emotions get the better of him. Another Houston type of emotional game?

of course. I just hope they don't let Austin run his mouth. We need to nip that in the bud and just play basketball,

Since trading season is over I hope Lou will be on fire again and DJ will prove to Blake that he is better than Drummond, I still need to see a fire as well from the two ex-Piston. If Lou, Tobias and Gallos shots keeps falling we’re in better position to beat them.

And he is our PG, I hope he will not dribble dribble and shot, man I’m worried he will act like he is our franchise player. My guess is Milos is gone after this season or will be demoted to a back up, he can’t stay healthy.

Austin in the starting lineup right away. Thanks dad. Just in time to run his mouth at Blake.

If Detroit doesn't work the paint then the Clippers will have a good shot at this.

Blake shooting a knuckle ball jumper. Doesn't look right at all.

Tryin' to see if DJ is mentally back with the team

I didn't get that either.. At least he's playing within the offense and the ball is still moving around

Like I was saying,Bullock is killing it. Since december, he's third in 3pt %. Espn commentator said, "what do you expect when you give a guy consistent minutes". Exactly.

Took him a little bit, but Bullock finally has a ton of confidence on the floor, good for him. Blake even said he was surprised at his confidence.

Blake will be gassed by the fourth. I wish doc would play that 7’3 center we got.

This is the most electrifying clippers team I’ve seen in a long time. We don’t have much in terms of talent; but these guys energy is infectious.

I'd say that this team is pretty talented, no superstar, sure, but in terms of depth of talent, especially post-trade, there are few teams that can match the Clippers this season.

Watching Gallo play, you know why the guy gets injured, feel like I said this before earlier in the season, some of his drives just have a certain recklessness to them

I'm taping this and I'm not even looking at the comments but something hit me. BG said that he wants to play with a team that wants him. He is so immature as to not realize that 100% of the Clipper fans, everybody in the FO and a huge number of non Clipper fans want him to be a monster all star with the Clipps. He was the heart and soul of this team. When he plays well he's a joy to watch no matter who your team is. He ignored the fact that he wasn't playing at the level his contract dictated. If he had played to that level he would have been here for life.What is his problem? He's DET's go to guy. Why wasn't he ours?

When I say talent I mean guys above role players. One can argue Lou, but that is about it. As opposed to a team like Timberwolves, Okc, warriors, Portland, etc...

The guys on our team are good tho.

Harrell is like Draymon in terms of size but still holds his own at the 5.

Interesting to see if he could hold the top tier centers in this league tho.

Defense is lite right now. Not many rebounds to be had also. Bullock looks like a legit player now. I bet Doc would trade for now lol.
