NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 19:
Los Angeles Clippers (10-6) at Utah Jazz (9-9)
Chris Paul is saying nice things about Utah now to later use us as free agency leverage, duh.
Chauncey Billups is back in action, and he and CP3 will have their normative 'practice sessions' against Mo Williams and Randy Foye. These four guys probably have seen a lot of each other over the last year or so. It will be interesting. I'm predicting no Marvin Williams and no Derrick Favors -- so -- our really expensive Bigs will have to shoulder the load on offense and defense. I hope they do bring it.
Behold: A lot of numbers!
I really think the Clippers are vulnerable on their defensive glass, and that's where our attack should be in the paint on second chance shots. It sucks not to have Derrick Favors out there -- but everyone has to show up and compete against highly marketed teams. The Clippers get a ton of steals and that results in easy baskets on the other side of the floor. We can't beat ourselves. We have to make them beat us -- it should be an uphill climb for them. After all, we're at home.
