    Go Clippers.:rolleyes: Maybe we should bench the starters so we don't accidently win this one and hurt our chances at the 4 seed.

    I rarely use caps....


    BUT PLEASE BEAT THIS ****ING TEAM ALREADY.


    If we're not going to win, then just rest Harden and Howard early on.

    Lin better step the f up! Don't have much faith in our defense. Greg Smith was the only guy who could hold Griffin down is also out.

    This is going to be a very tough match up.

    Griffin is playing the best he's played in his career. He's legit in the 2nd tier MVP discussion. Do we even have a player that can slow him down?

    And the Clippers were already a bad match up. Their strengths play directly into our strengths. We're not going to outrun them in transition, they're athletic and can shot block (making the paint difficult for Harden). And they can match up decently with Howard down low (DJ).

    CP3, as always, is going to get his.

    I slot OKC and Clippers as the worst pure match ups for the Rockets. Spurs are as good or a better team than either of them, but we match up far better against the Spurs.

    This is a good litmus for McHale to test out some playoff scenarios as far as substitutions at the 1 spot. CP3 is a top notch point guard. If they can contain him and limit their offense, I'd feel better going forward without Bev in the rotation.

    This game will depend on how well TJ plays against Blake.

    U got the East now its time for the West. Build Confidence and Momentum especially if we end up playing the Clipz/Okc in the playoffs!

    Probably no Howard (ankle) and no Bev. This will be a tough game to win..But Rox have pride, I don't think they will get swept 4-0...at least I hope not.

    If Howard's not good, he shouldn't play, we'll need him at his best in the playoffs.
