08:08 AM ET 02.11 | The Clippers hit a milestone of sorts heading into the weekend, when in the 52nd game of the season Vinny Del Negro had his full roster. In a win-now season, they look more and more like a team that needs to take a midseason gamble. The whispers of optimism emanating from Staples Center about how confident the Clippers are that Paul will sign for the long term when free agency hits in July have been rampant for months. ... This is where you ask, with full justification, whether the team many regard as the league's deepest in regular-season terms really has enough playoff know-how and toughness to get there. The suspicion, again, is that the Clips already know they don't.

Kg really would be perfect there

So would Marion...

They could use some defensive "guts" - the Matrix would bring that.

QUOTE(#1):

They're just missing a low post player. Maybe even Boozer can help this team out. Best case scenario is them getting Big Al.

If I were Clips, I wouldn't depend on Hill or Billups to be healthy.

Maybe someone like Odom & Willie Green would be expendable -- but I'd be careful about moving anyone else.

Nice to see Chris Paul back to playing well.
