Eight straight losses? That's what the Raps are facing if they go down in flames today against the Clips. Blake Griffin and co. are the talk of the NBA as Chris Paul has "lob city" running on all cylinders.

However...the Raps are catching a break here as Chris Paul is a no-go. Apparently the Clips are playing it safe and who can blame them.

To balance things out though, the Raps won't have Andrea Bargnani either. He's a no go, but point guard Jerryd Bayless will return at last.

So this should be interesting. Minus Paul, the Raps may be better able to control the Clippers pace but regardless, this is still a very talented team that Toronto is going to have to fight tooth and nail to beat.
