Luke Walton said he thinks Rajon Rondo will play Thursday barring any setbacks. Rondo has missed 14 straight games. As for LeBron James, Walton said, "I haven't seen him do contact yet so you know I don't feel as confident. I know that you know how serious he is about his rehab so he is doing everything possible. We've talked. I know he is dying to get back on the basketball court but he also knows getting healthy is top priority. Whenever that day comes, he will be back out there but I would say right now I feel more confident about Rondo being ready for Thursday."

Klay Thompson admitted that wanting some redemption for the Christmas Day loss to the Lakers played "a little bit" into his explosion. "I mean obviously they were shorthanded, missing their point guard and their best player," Thompson said. "But you can't feel sorry because teams aren't going to feel sorry for us when we're wounded. Just happened to be on one tonight, and I'm happy I was able to do it in front of my family."
