SB Nation Clippers Blogs: Clips Nation, SB Nation Los Angeles

Eric Gordon is listed as questionable but according to Clips Nation he is out for tonight's game. Marvin is back tonight and I have him penciled into the starting lineup. We will see how Larry Drew plays it. I was very critical of the Hawks win in Los Angeles earlier this season as they really stunk up the place in my opinion for three quarters before pulling the game out of the fire at the end. This one is in Philips Arena and the Hawks take care of business. I would like to see a lot better defensive effort than what was on display against Toronto.

Update - Ken Sugiura reports that Atlanta will start the big lineup tonight with Jason Collins. That means Al Horford will be matched up on Blake Griffin.
