Default Opening Night: @ Lakers 10/27


@
Los Angeles Clipper(0-0) @ Los Angeles Lakers(0-0)

WHEN: Tuesday , October 27th at 7:30 PM
WHERE: Staples Center in Los Angeles, California
MEDIA: TNT, KFWB News Talk 980 (Radio)





Q's Keys To The Game
  1. 1] Control the paint. Have to force Lamar to shoot jumpers and go into Kaman and Rhino alot on the offensive end.
  2. 2] Rebound the basketball. With the Lakers missing Pau and the Clippers having among the deepest front courts in the entire association, we have to keep the Lakers off the offensive glass, while crashing the boards ourselves.
  3. 3] Baron Davis needs to punish the Laker point guards. No doubt he could them off the dribble or bully them by posting up.



Q's Quote:
"The season is finally here. Baron seems pumped up and ready for the season, unlike last year. Not to mention that the Clippers finally got some depth with the acquisitions of Sebastian Telfair and Craig Smith. Gasol and Bynum might be on the injury report, but I highly doubt they miss the season opener."

Q's Predicition :Clippers Win 109-103
Prediction Record: 0-0

Blake Griffin questionable for the opener.

Professor Griff is a warrior, he'll play. Clips win 110 - 97.

Blake will play. He didn't seem that bothered by the strain or whatever it is, but if he doesn't, I'm confident with DeAndre Jordan and Craig Smith having great games due to the different aspects which they excel at. Smith will get the Laker bigs in foul trouble (oh wait, its the old refs who always gave the Lakers the advantage, so maybe not) and DeAndre is just an energy guy who will get easy alley oop jams and putbacks.

Lakers take court early for opening nite v Clippers. Ring nite for champs. Clips will be in their locker-room for that. Gasol will not play.

Thornton gets the start over 'Sual Butler. Torn on this since 'Sual is a better fit with the first unit, but 'Sual gives us a legit backup SG as well.

Down ten after one. Not really that bad considering how we keep shooting ourselves in the foot with careless turnovers. Shooting just under 41% and getting out rebounded by seven isn't going to help with anything.

I simply don't understand why Baron, Al, 'Sual, Buckets don't just attack the bucket. When Gordon did that early on, he drew a foul and found Kaman for an easy duece.

Down 10 at the half, just like at the end of the first. Go on a good run, follow it up by playing boneheaded once again. Thornton has to have the lowest basketball IQ in the league, closely followed by Kaman. Dunleavy is there as well, tops among the head coaches in the league clearly.

Down by 1 at the end of three after being down by double digits, as many as 15 I believe. It seems like Gordon's play is rubbing off on everyone else and we finally got someone hitting the boards (Camby).

Just need to keep attacking the bucket and boxing out and we'll have a legit shot.

I like the fact that the Clipps are improving on D. They should win many gamez on that improvement alone.

Baron, your injured, just rest your damn ankle and don't try to force things. He was great on offense though.
