In past years how often was it exciting for the Clippers to come to town? Times have changed. I am going to the game tonight baby! Go Jazz! The Jazz are going to need to bring the intensity tonight. Keys to a win. (In my opinion)

-Go to the rack, get points in the paint, get to the line
-Keep Paul out of the paint, force Griffin off the block
-Do not settle for jumpshots, the Jazz have fallen in love with the jumper lately
-Make foul shots, that will bite the Jazz like it did against the Lakers and Raptors if they keep missing.

I am expecting a good environment tonight. Go Jazz! Beat the other L.A.

-By the way the dunk everyone is talking about by Blake Griffin was not a dunk. He never grabbed the rim. If a baseball player hits the ball almost out of the park and hits the top of the fence, that is not a home run. Nice hit, no home run. Nice move Griffin, but that was NOT a dunk.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see what the big deal is with Chris Paul. He's a great passer, but his leadership is suspect (a big reason to have Chancey Billups), he's only an average shooter, and he and Deron Williams basically have the same attitude. Even with everything that's happened, I'd still take Deron over Paul. D-Will is a better scorer overall, can defend a bigger variety of opposing players, is at least as good a passer as Paul, and doesn't get hurt as easily. At best, Paul is the third best, behind Rose and Williams, and the only thing he does better than Russell Westbrook is pass, so you could even drop him to number four. I guess I just don't get what the big deal is about CP.
