The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the most exciting teams in the NBA having won the last four out of five games. With the Los Angeles Lakers on a two game losing streak, Angelinos and basketball fans may want to catch Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon and company at the Staples Center instead. It will definitely cost you less money.
The Clippers defeated the fast-paced Phoenix Suns 108-103 on Sunday December 26, despite a late game surge by Steve Nash and crew.
Blake Griffin continues to manifest himself as a highlight reel by producing dunks that defy gravity as well as racking up a consistent amount of double-doubles. Blake joins the likes of Dwight Howard (Orlando) and Kevin Love (Minnesota) averaging 20 points and 12 rebounds.
This rookie continues to create buzz and is putting the Clippers on the map as a contender for years to come. Youth continues to serve as rookies across the NBA impress many.
The Clippers face the Sacramento Kings at ARCO Arena in Sacramento tonight at 7:00 pm (PST).
This is the third meeting between the two teams this season. The Clippers snatched two previous victories and Griffin averaged 19.0 points and 13.0 rebounds in both home wins. Los Angeles looks to keep the momentum and rob the Kings of a home victory.
Recently, Sacramento’s guard Tyreke Evans and center Demarcus Cousins haven’t been playing up to their potential. Cousins was removed from the starting line-up in Thursday’s loss against Milwaukee while Evans scored a season-low four points.
Although the two are experiencing a slump, the Clippers cannot slack in their defense of the two dynamic players. Last season Evans averaged 25.0 points on 52.5 percent shooting in the Sacramento two home wins against the Clippers.
With each game, Los Angeles increases their productivity, cohesion and frequency of exhilarating Blake Griffin monster highlights.
The Clippers face the Kings tonight, Utah Jazz on Wednesday at 7:30 pm (PST) and open the new year facing the Atlanta Hawks Sunday January 2nd at 12:30 PM (PST)
