If you're from Oklahoma, you have been waiting for this game for over a year.

It's the first time the Oklahoma City Thunder take on former Oklahoma University star Blake Griffin in a game that counts.  It's also a game where Griffin is heavily favored against his match-up Jeff Green.  Also, Chris Kaman will look to absolutely embarrass Nenad Krstic for the little time that Krstic is hopefully in for.

Apart from that, that's about all the Clippers have going for them.  The Thunder have them beat in just about every category you can think of. 

However, the Clippers are still win-less and will surely be motivated to get their first win against one of the more hyped up teams in the off season.  Also, Blake Griffin will probably be amped up to face his home state squad and leave his mark on the Thunder.

It looks like it will be a interesting game to watch inside the Staples Center, so get yourself some popcorn and enjoy.
