The L.A. Clippers are on the outside looking in right now when it comes to the playoffs. The Clippers are 4-1 over thier last five games. The Portland Trailblazers are eyeing to lock up the third seed in the Western Conference. The Trailblazers are 2-3 over the last five games, and recently took a loss to the Grizzlies 108-103.
The last time the Clippers and Trailblazers took the floor against each other, was March 18th. The Clippers got the win 122-109.
The Clippers are winners of three in a row. Los Angeles last beat the Phoenix Suns, 111-99. The win was the teams third straight win. Tobias Harris led the Clippers in scoring with 27 points in the win over the Suns. If the Clippers can continue to win games, the team will find themselves battling for the last spot in the West.
Despite winning three in a row, the Clippers are 5-5 over their last 10 games, and currently sit one game behind the Jazz. The Clippers have the talent to sneak into the postseason, but are having a hard time winning consistently. Lou Williams has been a big reason the team has a winning record.
Williams leads the team in scoring with 22.7 points per game this year. His big time play almost got him into the All Star game this year. With Williams leading the team in scoring, the Clippers have a solid number two scoring option in Tobias Harris.
Harris is averaging 19.7 points per game this year. Things are going to be close, but expect big games from Williams and Harris against the Trailblazers. They will be tested by the star back-court of McCollum and Lillard.
Defensively, the Clippers are allowing 108.4 points per game this year. Ranking the Clippers 21st in points allowed per game this year.
The Portland Trailblazers sit in the third seed in the Western Conference right now. Despite the team losing three of their last five, the Trailblazers are looking to stay in the third spot. If the Trailblazers can continue to play hard, the team will be well on their way to sowing up the number three spot in the West.
The Trailblazers took a five point loss in their most recent game, losing to the terrible Grizzlies, 108-103. Damion Lillard did not play due to the birth of his first child. Lillard should be ready to go in this one. He could be ready for a scoring explosion against the Clippers. He dropped 41 against the Pelicans in his last game.
The thing that separates the Trailblazers from a lot of other teams in the West, is the way they play defense. The Trailblazers are allowing 103.3 points per game this season. Good enough to rank them 5th in the NBA this year in points allowed per game.
