well i wonder how many more clippers bandwagons will be in the arena now. they've grown noticeably the past two years. guys remember this? watch at 0:40, virtually all of the people in the arena were cheering on that game winner.

They can beat the Clippers. It would be pretty great to get this win on national tv over one of the best teams in the league right now. Lakers beat the Knicks on national tv on Christmas day, let's get another one.

I don't believe in must wins in January, but for our confidence, I believe this is a must win.

Dwight needs to play like he did against Portland. He needs to just rape these guys.

Unless Pau Gaswag shows up along with an engaged Dwight Howard we aren't winning this game eventhough close at times.

We have to force them to play our game and make them have to beat us with their half court sets. Get up good shots on offense so they don't lead to run outs on defense.

The Clippers only chance against us, is running early, building a big lead, and having a cushion before we get settled in.

When their bench comes in, just focus on shutting down Crawford and make Barnes and Odom have to do something. If Crawford is kept out of the fray, their bench isn't gonna be the same "threat" their bench is basically Crawford does everything and occasionally other guys hit open shots. Shut down Crawford, and you've stopped their bench.

So it's basically about forcing them to beat us with their half court game, which is non existent, and keeping Crawford on lock down.

Can we do it? Yes

Will we do it? That remains to be seen.

I expect a great game. Just remember guys, it's just a regular season game. Watch it and have fun but at the end of the day we move on to the next game.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

Keys to the game:

- Do not let Crawford or Bledsoe go off, Lakers bench has no one to match that production

- Cut down turnovers and slow down the pace, cannot get into a track meet with them

- Limit the 'momentum' plays

- Hope that our outside shooting is on point tonight
