Clippers-Grizzlies open thread

Not every regular season game is huge, but this one is. The Clippers can re-take third place in the Western Conference and serve notice to the Grizzlies that they intend to stay there with a win tonight.

Caron Butler (elbow) out

Jamal Crawford (ankle) probable

Trey Thompkins (knee) out

How much will the Clippers miss Butler and Bledsoe? Bledsoe's absence may be a blessing in disguise if Billups plays well and keeps the turnovers down. Meanwhile Barnes and Hill are more than capable of handing the three spot tonight. Crawford on the other hand would be a big loss.
