Los Angeles Clippers' top draft pick Blake Griffin has lived up to his hype during the preseason, averaging 13.7 points and 8.1 rebounds.

The Los Angeles Clippers play their home opener on Wednesday night, October 28, but the game against the Phoenix Suns is actually their second inside Staples Center. The team opens its season the night before as visitors of the Lakers.

That little bit of confusion is a small price to pay for the teams' shared home, which they've now occupied for ten years. We've got two pairs of tickets for blogdowntown readers interested in cheering on Downtown's "other" NBA team in their first official home night.

The new season is a promising one for the Clippers. The team went 5-2 in the preseason, and rookie Blake Griffin has shown the potential that made him a top draft pick. Griffin is second on the team in scoring (13.7 points) and tops in rebounds (8.1) during the preseason.

If the team can stay away from the injuries that plagued it last season, it seems poised to make a run at the playoffs.

Want to be there for Wednesday's game? Just leave a comment with your prediction for the upcoming season. Make sure to include contact info via Facebook or email. Contest closes Tuesday at 6pm. Tickets will be picked up at Will Call.
