My hands are so shaky I can barely type. For the first time in about six years, the Clippers are playing meaningful basketball. Feel free to hop in the comments section with us and follow us on Twitter (@fosterdj is my name — I can lead you to the rest of the gang) for live takes during the game. We’ll have a postgame ClipperBlogLive immediately after the game as well, so tune in for that.
A few thoughts before the game.
- Let’s finish out the 2011-12 Clipper Awards in a speedy manner. Your winner for Best Supporting Actor? Blake Griffin. MVP? Chris Paul. We’ll revisit those once the playoffs are out of the way. We’ll give out a first team ClipperBlog commenters award as well, which should be fun.
- I can’t even see straight I’m so excited. I’m a little nervous at how the Lakers dispatched Denver, considering Denver is the closest contemporary to the Clippers in terms of defensive efficiency. I just have to keep reminding myself of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Paul and Griffin. Paul and Griffin.
- Make sure to check out the videos below for some pregame analysis. Lots of good stuff from Charlie Widdoes and Nick Flynt, and lots of incoherent rambling from me.
Yours in the comments section. Enjoy the game everyone.
