Clips are really good. But we shouldn't be scared of anybody. When we play our best, we can hang with any team. A win here would be huge for our confidence, whether we end up making the playoffs or not.

Anybody know the injury report? Are Harrell and Lou Williams still out for the Clips? Are we still sitting Baynes?

Monty said Baynes won't play unless he gets 5 on 5 practice time, and with games every other day, they just don't have that. So I doubt he will play soon.

I think I read Lou is back today. Not sure on the others.

Tough matchup with George and Kawhi. Cam and Mikal will have their hands full. This is where Oubre would be a huge help.

Clips with Zubac and Noah at the 5 so Ayton should come out looking to dominate. I wonder if the Clips go smaller with Patterson or Morris at the 5?

Can't let a guy like Morris go off for 30 while George and Leonard do their thing.

Then I guess we’ll just have to blow out the Clips. When we’re up by 40 in the fourth quarter, Baynes can get some work in.

Gonna start today with a similar kinda post lol
Paul George is one of my fav players and he's been quite sharp now his shoulders been sorted out but anyways that's all the praise I will be giving today

Ayton has to come to play today, yes Zubac n Noah aren't any daunting matchup but they are two guys who will battle n play hard. So as always DA has to come with the right intensity

Kaehi gonna try to big boy Mikal looking to work him in the post or get to mid-range so interested to see how he fares
I don't expect Lou to be full go and Trez out is big
Of the others I'm not a Jackson fan and that twin guy has really really struggled since they traded for him

Clippers D is legit so wanna see how we execute and control our turnovers

Let's Go !!

100% Limit turnovers, limit 50/50 balls (squeeze the ball on rebounds, secure it with both hands), win 50/50 balls, and stay out of foul trouble.

Hmm, Clips are pretty big on the wing.

Stuck at work, so won’t be able to watch this one. Really don’t see a win here but if ends like this I’ll be happy.
