At a glance:

Ok, let's try to keep things in perspective. They are a good team. And we're okay. Good teams lose to okay teams all the time -- so the outcome of this game isn't predetermined. That said, more likely than not, good teams beat okay teams. And this may very well be the case tonight. It may be hotly contested, and physical. Tempers may flare -- but it's still just one game. And it's a game, if we lose, that'll put us at 15-17. Which is one game off of my 16-16 prediction. (Hi there New Orleans Hornets game back in November!) So it's not the end of the world if we manage to finish the game with less points. It'll be awesome if we become the team that breaks their win streak though. So there's hope still, and this is a low risk / high reward game.

If we lose, no one will fault us. If we win, to the victor goes the spoils.

The Clippers are hot right now, but they're still the Clippers. And I expect Randy Foye to score 82 points tonight. All on dribble drives.
