The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest. We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.
As always, the Los Angeles Clippers are loaded with talent which now includes one of the NBA's young superstars, Blake Griffin. The Clipshow's newest draftee will gladly be welcomed in by the Portland's bigs, especially this "new" and improved Greg Oden. Baron Davis and Al Thornton will also join Griffin and likely force the Blazers into some interesting matchups for McMillan to combat. Fortunately for Portland, a certain free agent signing can now match the lowpost-guard-grind that Davis has enjoyed against the Blazers in previous years. Expect a ton of lineup shuffling, but also expect a pretty entertaining game. Now only if we could watch it.
