LA Clippers Try to Get Back in Win Column
LA had won three in a row and five of six before running out of steam against the 76ers on the road Saturday night. That left the Clippers half a game behind the Pelicans for the final playoff spot in the West entering Sunday’s action. LA trailed by nine after the first quarter and by 14 at the half before making a move: they cut the deficit in half after three quarters and climbed within two midway through the fourth. The Clippers then went cold, not scoring for more than four minutes as the 76ers strung together an 8-0 run to retake control. LA shot 43.2 percent from the field, including eight of 32 from three point range, but was 14 of 23 at the line. Lou Williams came off the bench to score 23 to lead the Clippers.

The Clippers are currently 8th in the league in scoring offense with 107.5 points per game. LA is 14th in the league in rebounding with 43.8 boards per game and stand 20th in assists with 22.1 per contest. The Clippers are mediocre defensively, ranking 21st in scoring defense by allowing 106.9 points per game. Tobias Harris (18.1 points, 5.2 boards) and Avery Bradley (14.4 points) will help bolster the banged-up Clippers’ rotation. DeAndre Jordan puts up 11.3 points and 15 rebounds per night. Lou Williams (23.3 points, 5.3 assists) and Danilo Gallinari (15.8 points, 4.8 rebounds) are solid offensive weapons for Doc Rivers. Gallinari returned after missing 25 games with a glute injury against the Trail Blazers on January 30. Patrick Beverley (12.2 points, 1.73 steals) is likely done for the year after microfracture surgery. Boban Marjanovic, Austin Rivers (15.6 points), Sam Dekker, Wesley Johnson and Milos Teodosic are good rotation players for the Clippers. LA is 13th in the league in field goal percentage as they shoot 46.2 percent from the floor. The Clippers are 19th in three pointers a game with 10.1 and 24th in three point shooting as they hit 35.2 percent of their long range attempts.
