OTHER PERSPECTIVES
: ClipperBlog, Clips Nation

FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY: Atlanta -1, 189 o/u

PREVIOUSLY...the Los Angeles Clippers lost 103-95 to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night but have won five of their last seven, with three of those wins coming on the road, including a 100-99 victory in Chicago.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Does Joe Johnson match up (ignoring for the moment, the normality of such a scenario) against famous person and formerly good basketball player Baron Davis or does he try and keep up with the Clippers' best perimeter player, Eric Gordon?

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.
