Cannot WAIT for this game.

Saw the 4th and OT of the Suns/Jazz game last night:
- DeAndre Ayton is a PROBLEM. Phenomenal offensive rebounder and Zu will have to have to step up major to compete with him.

- Cannot let Devin Booker into the paint, again Zu will be critical.

I feel very comfortable getting into a 3pt shooting contest with them, but they are very good at getting quick buckets off transition and turnovers (ahem.. Paul George).

I like our chances, but the Suns are for real. This would be a great win.

Suns are on a back to back coming off an OT game, so Clippers have an advantage there, hopefully they can use it. CP being an older guy, he should be nice and sore tonight, don't expect a big game from him tonight, but of course anything can happen.

Glad to see opponent fans respect Ayton's improvements at least a little. We need him to play the same way to have a chance to win tonight so I worry he might be gassed.

We have a point guard now so why is Kawhi over-dribbling?

It'll be cancelled after a week despite how they spammed a million obnoxious ads for it during March Madness.
