Q's Quote: "Clippers need this one and I hope to see some of Luke Jackson along with more of Paul Davis. A home and home series for LA and they should be able to take both imo, but they won't be easy. This should be a closer game then the one at Los Angeles and hopefully Cassell can provide enough leadership to win. Go Clippers! "
Q's Key To The Game:
Contain Baron Davis. We all know Livingston can not guard quick points and that's what Davis is. I hope more and more that Jaric returns to the Clippers in some sort of deal.
Do NOT get sucked into running and gunning. Warriors might start Barnes at the 4 spot so pound the ball into the twin towers.
Stay out of foul trouble Kaman and Brand. We need both of them due to the Warriors lack of bigs.
Playoff Watch: Currently 2 games out of the 8th seed, 3 out of 7th and a distant 6 out of 6th. Warriors stand in way of the playoffs for the Clippers, and Kings are 1.5 back with Hornets being 2.5 back and on a 2 game winning streak. Here are the teams that play tomorrow and how the game can affect the Clippers:
Kings @ Knicks - A Kings loss will make me and the Clippers feel better as the Kings would drop further back from the 8th seed making it one less team to battle with.
As you can see, Clippers really can't do much in the standings tomorrow, but move back to 1.5 out of the 8th and 2.5 out of the 7th seed along with pull further away from the Kings and leapfrog the Warriors for the 8th seed dropping Golden State to two games back.
