Four of the first 5 is at home followed by a 4 game road trip. 12 of 14 in the month of February is going to be on the road during the annual trip. 6 of our last 10 games are on the road as well, and they include the Lakers, Raptors, Mavericks twice, Suns, Thunder twice, Grizzlies twice and Rockets. All teams we might be battling for a playoff spot.
I really hope that the Clipps compete for a playoff spot. I think they have a solid team. They have all the pieces and I hope that Del Negro can push it all forward enough to make them competitive.
I know that the Clipps always falter in the end.. but I cant help but hope good things for them. I particularly hope good things for Blake.. he has all the potential to really be a star. Heres hoping that a little luck falls upon the Clippers this coming season..
