A huge game for both teams as the playoff races thicken takes place on Wednesday as the Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets go at it.
Currently, the Clippers sit in the 4th spot, just 2.0 games back of the 3rd place Thunder. Houston has themselves in a tie with Dallas for the 7/8 seeds and both are 2.0 games clear of the 9th spot.
The Clippers ran into two of the best in the NBA and things really didn’t go according to plan.
On Sunday afternoon they welcomed in Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Clippers got out to an early lead, but Cleveland was too much for them to handle as they eventually fell by 24 in a route.
Then on Tuesday they went into San Antonio and held them down for 3 quarters, but saw them put up 37 in the 4th quarter as they were once again routed.
The Clippers back to back losses are something they simply cannot afford to do as they are just 3.5 games clear of 5th place Memphis as well.
Los Angeles will be on the road for the foreseeable future and that doesn’t necessarily mean trouble for them. They have gone 20-12 SU this season away from the Staples Center.
Houston has picked the right time to start finding their groove.
The Rockets currently sit tied with the Mavericks, but because of the tiebreaker, they sit in the 7th spot if the season was to end today. The best news for them is that they have steered clear of the 9th spot for 2.0 games.
Houston comes in off a 130 point showing that saw them win by 49. Albeit was against a very thin and depleted Memphis team, but they still couldn’t miss offensively and really showed poise by going right at the Grizzlies and not over looking them.
Houston will look to improve on their home winning ways as they have gone 18-14 inside the Toyota Center. They’ll need to hold the fort down at home down the stretch of the season if they hope to keep a playoff spot.
