Join hosts Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague as they get you ready for Monday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Due to a schedule quirk, this is the 4th and final match up of the season between these teams -- all before Christmas Day. If Portland is looking to right the very awful wrongs of the past few games -- devastating losses to the Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs and the Boston Celtics -- while attempting to salvage the season, getting a win here and splitting the season series with the Clippers would be a great place to start.

Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons are out tonight for the Blazers; both expected to be looked at again in a few days, while Nassir Little has been upgraded to questionable, meaning there’s hope that a bit more heart and soul could be found on the floor.

Coach Billups decimated the team in the post-game press conference following the defeat to the Celtics, calling out shortages in effort, heart, give-a-damn and all manners of positive feelings and/or emotions. How will the team react in the face of the adversity?
