So here's the deal: I had too much fun last night, procrastinated on the preview, and now there isn't one! If you've still got time before the game, make sure to stop by Clips Nation for a preview or stop back by here for a full recap.
By the way, I'm just ready for something crazy to happen between these two teams. There's some great Ibaka-Griffin tension, and the Clippers score with the best of them. Hopefully both teams can finish at full strength, or at least bring this game back to the wire. And hopefully Westbrook has his sea legs, because Paul's no slouch.
Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder 112, Los Angeles Clippers 110.
