Clippers-Bobcats open thread

With the Clippers headed out for a brief road trip after this game, I maintain it's a trap game. It may not be a very good trap, since the Bobcats aren't very good, but it's a trap nonetheless. Not all traps work.

On the wish list for this game, Chris Paul hits some shots and Lamar Odom looks to score. That's in addition to getting the win, of course. According to Eric Patten's pregame report at Clippers.com, Jamal Crawford will miss the game due to the birth of his daughter, London. That obviously leaves the Clippers second unit a bit underpowered... all the more reason for Lamar to step up.
