Q's Quote:
"So, here we go, the basketball new year starting in less then a week. Clippers host the Warriors which will seem to be a very high scoring contest, or at least should be. It'll be interesting to see who Dunleavy uses in his starting unit at the SG position and PF along with who the true key reserves will be. Gametime!"

Well, the Warriors are coming off a 19 point loss at home to the Utah Jazz. Besides 25|4|10 with 5 steals and 2 blocks for B-Diddy, no one had a good game for the Warriors and you have to think they'll come out of that game with the mentality that they want a win. Clippers need to go to the post every chance they get with Patterson, Thomas, Mobley and Cassell needs to post up Ellis whenever Monta is on him. Don't think we should use Ross that much because we'll need scoring in this game, something he's not really known for.

I agree. We can't outrun the Warriors, so let's go to the post which is a place that they could never beat us. We can play this "new-style" all we want, but if we want to win this one, let's postpone it until next game.

I love the style we are playing this preseason especially that play we run for Corey comes off a screen and catches the ball in the post. He will be very effective in there and I hope to see him posting up more instead of him turning into "Kobe" mode and start jacking up contested jumpers.

Great plays by Cuttino Mobley in the end when it counted.

I love that bank-shot he hit from the right side

Thumbs up Re: GT: Game 1 vs Warriors 10/02

The Clips are better than even us fans thought. They
will be competitive and in most games until the end.
A few breaks our way and we could end up with the
7th or 8th seed.

Chris Kaman was a monster and he looks lighter, quicker, more mature,
and he is playing like a 7 footer. The guy has toughness.
He got slammed in the eye by accident after challenging
a posterizing dunk. He lost the battle but won the war by
grabbing all the boards (19) and putting in 26. It was an
all star performance. I think we can put him down for a
15 and 10 season if he is healthy and consistent.

As for the rest of the team, we have depth but we lack a
superstar (with EB out). The team chemistry is great.
Cat's unselfish is the example for the rest of the team.
Give the maligned Dunleavy credit for opening things up and admitting
his mistake by cutting Korolev. Q Ross has added range with the 3.
Ruben Patterson adds attitude to the team; teams wont
mess with the Clips with Kobestopper out there.
Thornton is the best draft pick since drafting Tyson Chandler
for the Bulls. He is a man out there unlike Korolev and Livingston.

Next year this team will be contending with or without OJ,
although getting OJ and Agent Zero would make us better
and ready to hang a red white and blue banner in Staples.
