Reckon Barnes will start at SF and Harrington move back to PF but never know.

This has to be a win! The Clips are shiit right now and they usually beat the team so it would be a great confidence booster to get the win.

Baron should be able to do what he wants this game and I can see Monta being able to kick butt as well.

They should have an easier time. No Brand. But Mags knows how to get to the line so watch out. The Warriors should win the majority of their matchups.

buike owns the clippers. ross is gonna be a pest but monta should be able to score still. thomas wont do much...i think him and kaman will get run off the floor and force the clipps to go small with patterson at 4 and EITHER thomas or kaman at 5.

Should be a win. Even an easy one, on paper. Mags is poised for a big season, but he's (almost) the only one we should care about on the Clippers.

PS: Please, Nellie, don't start Pietrus again at PF!!!.

Harrington should start. And I'm sure he will.

Pissed off Warriors by 15. Baron goes for 20/10 in limited minutes. Barnes drops 22 in garbage time.

Im predicting Mags will get between 20-25 points. Hes there top shooter/scorer.

I really hope Pietrus doesnt start at PF again. He scored alot last night, but once again his stupid fouls.

Harrington should be starting.

Here is my hopeful lineup:

BD
Monta
Azu
Harrington
Beans
re, UI

Also, I would like to see Marco play alot more, I think he brings alot of offense.

And one more thing, Wright better suit up for this game. Seeing him on the bench with a suit was demoralizing, especially with the Jazz up by 20. Showing nothing for J-Rich. I know, early in the season, but the fans deserve to see what the got for J-Rich.

With this,

The most important things in this game is try to slow down the playmaker which mean Sam cassell, if we could make him play bad the game is ours.
He is veteran PG with bunch of experienced...and put monta to C.Magette.Speed vs Speed....looks who faster, No matter who gonna play we have to be ready for all situation....keep the game tempo.We are hurry on Jazz game that's why we can't get back the points we loss.
W's are the team who able to get back from behind even we deficit 20 points.i hope this time Nellie will well prepare the team for clippers game...
well done... :wink:

I'd also like Marco to get some more time in there, too. He looked good in the few minutes that he got, and that open three is money for him, it looks like.

They need to weather the storm until Jackson gets back, and pray he doesnt get in more trouble.

When Marco rushes his shot, he misses. His first shot attempt was in the 2nd or maybe 1st I think. I remember Baron penetrated and then kicked it out to Bellineli who was wide open and he missed it. He looked like he rushed that shot. But when he shot those two three pointers in the 3rd, he took his time and was ready.

Marco can shoot it and he'll have to when the team is getting smashed like they were against Utah because the three point shot is one of the team's best weapons

Yeah, but at times seems like we abuse it. It's been happening for the last few years. Even when the shots ain't falling, we keep shooting... I know it's the nature of this team, but that won't make you win big. That's why we need some scoring inside.
