The Clippers look to make it 11 in a row as they continue to play at a top tier level.
Los Angeles will welcome in the Kings Saturday night into the Staples Center.
The Kings were in action on Thursday night as they saw went into Utah and knocked off the Jazz 103-101 behind DeMarcus Cousins’ phenomenal game.
DeMarcus Cousins was unstoppable all of Thursday night, which caused the Jazz to completely focus on him in the final possession of the game.
While all the attention went to Cousins, Rude Gay slipped free and hit the game winning shot with just 0.9 seconds to go.
DeMarcus Cousins recorded his 21st double-double of the season as he finished with 36 points and 17 rebounds. Cousins continues to be the back bone to this Kings team that is at least keeping them around in the bottom of the Western Conference race.
Rajon Rondo also had a big night as he grabbed 6 rebounds and added 13 assists.
The Kings defense has been a problem for them during road contests as they’re allowing 110.1 points per road game.
The Clippers are finding ways to win no matter what adversity they face.
F Blake Griffin went down and has missed the past 9 games, but that hasn’t slowed down the Clippers by any means. Los Angeles has rattled off 10 straight wins and dominated the Heat last time out inside the Staples Center 104-90 Wednesday night.
Backup C Cole Aldrich stepped up in a big way, as both Griffin and Jordan were out of Wednesday’s contest as he finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds. The start marked Aldrich’s first start in 17 games with the Clippers this season.
Chris Paul put in another double-double as he put in 15 points and added 12 assists. He’s been the most consistent Clippers player while Griffin has been sidelined.
This 10 game winning streak is the 3rd of 10 or more over the past 4 seasons for the Clippers.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Clippers are playing just an unreal level right now. When you’re getting contributions from Cole Aldrich, you know things are going right.
Regardless of Jordan’s status here on Saturday, Aldrich will see an increase in his minutes here, making him much more of a game changer. Look for him to be on Cousins if Jordan isn’t playing.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers -5.5
Chris Paul should be able to continue his dominance as this Kings defense is just bad. The Clippers easily surpass the 100 point mark and route the Kings here at home.
