Game 10 - Nets @ Clippers - Monday, November 15, 10:30

New, comments

The Nets begin a four-game West Coast road trip earlier than in previous years.  The Ice Capades took precedence over the NBA's New Jersey franchise at the IZOD during Thanksgiving so the team went West. The first game will be against the team just about everyone thinks is the NBA's worst: the 1-9 Clippers.

The Clippers start two rookies, the 2009 overall #1 pick, Blake Griffin, and Eric Bledsoe, John Wall's backup at Kentucky last year. Griffin has been everything people expected, averaging 16.6 and 10.9. Eric Gordon, the third year shooter who won a gold medal at the World Championship, is just back from injury. He scored 28 Friday night. Injuries have sapped the Clips early, with Chris Kaman and Baron Davis out and Randy Foye day-to-day. As a result, Griffin is likely to be guarding Brook Lopez and Bledsoe will be on Devin Harris.

For Jordan Farmar, the trip is a homecoming.  The native Angeleno played at Staples Center for the Lakers.  The Nets do have a streak they'd like to end on the trip.  They've dropped 23 straight on the road to Western Conference opponents. Their last road win out west came vs. Memphis on Jan. 24, 2009. Terrence Williams is likely to be a game time decision again Monday.
