12-2 in November?

Is it just me, or does the whole of November seem like the easiest schedule we've ever seen?  2 meetings apiece against Minnesota, New Orleans, Oklahoma City?  3 meetings with Memphis?  The other five games against Denver, Toronto, Indiana, Detroit, and Golden State?  Denver has been a juggernaut, with 'Melo throwing his hat into the MVP race.  Toronto has one of the better records in the league and Chris Bosh and Bargnani may be a tough match up for both Kaman and Camby.But the rest of the teams on the schedule...?  Memphis has more talent than the majority of NBA rosters, just like Golden State.  They have at least 5 players that could be good for at least 30 a game.  BUT just like Golden State, they are a collection of "me-first" players.  AI is playing for his stats and a future contract.  So is Rudy Gay.  OJ Mayo, from what we saw last year, gets his PPG by the sheer volume of shots he throws up.  ZBo doesn't know how to pass or defend.  Neither does AI.  On a positive note, they've got a good player in Pau's brother.  He's the only one who plays any semblance of defense, I think.  Someone commented that if we don't win tonight's game, then our win against Golden State shouldn't count for anything.  I would have to agree.  New Orleans isn't the same team that took the league by storm a couple of years ago.  As good as CP3 may be, he simply doesn't have the running mates to compete.  They're a flawed team that we should toast the minute Paul sits on the bench.  If the Clippers play their game and not play down to the competition, we should handle a scrappy up and coming team Oklahoma as well.  Detroit is on the decline.  Indiana can be dangerous, as the Wizards found out...but we have enough talent to take them down.  Looking further down the road into December, I hope that the our Clippers get the most out of this stretch.  As talented as our team may be, I wouldn't wish consecutive games against Philly, San Antonio, Houston, Phoenix, Boston, Portland, Philly, Portland, Lakers, and finally Miami on anybody...!
