Already mad about this game.
I'll be bringing the hate come game time!

Well, actually past game time as this will be a DVR special for me to watch late on Friday.

Still, I offer my angry face. :angry:

Twice: :angry:

Tattoo mania and the Floppers coming to town should sell out the Forum!

Can't wait for Friday night.

This might be the game of the night in the NBA. Great rivalry with something to play for. This should be billed as a Loser Leaves Town match.

I just put this in one of the injury threads, but from TIllery:

Ronald Tillery@CAGrizBeat 25m

Tony Allen says he'll return Fri vs Clips barring a setback and he doesn’t mind coming off the bench. “I really don’t want to be disruptive”

I thought people were saying TA was a prima donna. What happened?

I didn't really get into the NBA until the early Nineties, but if Tony Allen comes off the bench as a defensive 6th man, that would be similar to what Michael Cooper used to do with the Showtime LA Lakers. Cooper was THE stopper. That might be Tony Allen's best role now. On offense, I also think that Tony Allen will get you a handful of points a night whether he plays 15 minutes or 50 minutes.

Man. Teams are gonna HATE playing us! Imagine Calathes bothering you, TA and JJ flying all over the court on D, Prince playing solid D, the DPOY in Gasol, Conley hounding you...it's a nightmare for any team, but especially for a finesse team though I do think the Clips are less so this year

Supposed Blake the Flake is impressing everyone with how much he has improved. This will be a good test for our aging ZBO to see if he can still bring it. Can't wait to watch this battle.

I'd rotate Gasol, Koufas and Z-Bo on Blake to wear him down. Whoever is being guarded by Griffin goes down low and starts pushing on him on offense while the other big drags Jordan away from the hoop about 10-12 feet. Griffin is a great player but no one has the size the Grizzlies do to wear him down. He'll get frustrated and start taking jump shots instead of establishing position down low.

Oh and you can forget about him getting into foul trouble. Sorry but the refs won't call him for anything.

Blake is in another level this year, but I hope Zbo make his best to bullying him once again.
