Griffin will beat down Speights too. Hopefully Gasol doesn't struggle against an athletic big man in Jordan like he usually does

Do you even watch the Grizzlies? Seriously. Before this road trip, we were the ones in front in the previous half dozen games.

Should be interesting. Paul is expected back, but the Clips will be coming off a likely intense game against the Lakers

Hopefully they'll exert the bulk of their energy for that game and we'll be able to catch 'em by surprise. Either way, I think this is going to be an entertaining game.

Bounce back game. Rudy normally goes hard in national tv games. Hopefully he serves 'em up.

Yeah, it will be a bounce back game. I am not surprised we lost against Portland, we were just out of gas. I will miss DA on Griffin though.

Paul comes back hungry. Paul, Billups, and Mo Williams too much firepower to handle for our only reliable pg.(Conley), and Gasol is worn down (Are you kidding me??.. 4 rebounds against Portland!!!) Meanwhile Camby had 22 for Portland.

Griffin will expose the already defenseless Speights. Grizz lose this one; but will bounce back against Phoenix.

We need this one to build our credibility. The odds are stacked against the Grizz once more.

This game doesn't worry me as much as the Blazers did.

Mayo should have a good game as they don't have anybody who can stop him.

Speights should have plenty of good looks while Griffin is at the other end, complaining to the refs. And even if he does get back, his D is suspect anyway.

Conley has been playing every bit as well as CP3 this season. And he might not even play.

Rudy should go off against Caron Butler.

Marc vs. DeAndre will be an interesting matchup to watch.

They might have the WORST bench in the league, so our second unit guys should do well.

Blake will get his 15-20 and a couple of Sportscenter dunks. Mo Williams will drain some threes. And if CP3 plays, he could be the great equalizer. But they'll be on the second night of a back to back after playing in their superbowl, and outside of a couple of positions we have the better squad.

Bring on Flop City.

lilojmayo, your ignorance disappoints me, I thought more highly of you. We have jumped all over teams during every game of our winning streak. In only the past two games have we been playing from behind. Shame on you.

Anyways...

This game doesn't worry me nearly as much as the Portland game as Memphis Sissy stated above me. Last night we played our 4th game in 5 nights. The night before we spent every bit of not only physical energy, but mental energy in coming back in that epic win against Golden State. This game against LAC we had a short flight, have a full day to rest, and the Clippers play tonight making the game against us the second night of a back to back for them. I expect it to be a close game, but I feel pretty good about this one. TNT baby!

Lucky! Away games are so much fun (especially when we're winning!). Have fun and be safe!

I'm looking out for big games for TA and OJ. The both of them seem to fare very well when they have the size advantage at the 2. Both are bigger than Foye, Billups and Mo.

Conley said on his twitter that they will be wearing their TAMS jerseys tomorrow night! Wish we could have a pyramid days jerseys sometime.
