The Los Angeles Clippers head east as they clash with the Washington Wizards on Monday night.
The Clippers got their first win without Blake Griffin, but will certainly need production from others to pick up the slack as Griffin remains out two weeks.
Washington is in a similar boat as they have seen the injuries pile up, but they’ve gotten plenty of production to fill the voids as they’ve ran off 4 straight wins now to get back to the .500 mark.
F Blake Griffin suffered a partial quad tear on Christmas Day and is slated to be out at least a couple weeks. This injury could even keep him out as many as 4 weeks, making life on the Clippers extremely hard.
They passed their first test without Griffin on Saturday as they knocked off the Jazz 109-104.
F Paul Pierce saw an increase in his minutes with Griffin out and really stepped up. Pierce finished with a season high 20 points in 27 minutes. Pierce is likely to see similar, if not more minutes now going forward.
F Josh Smith was the guy who did start in Griffin’s place, but he struggled from the start. Smith finished just 0 of 2 from the field and played a mere 5 minutes.
Los Angeles has won 3 of the last 4 head-to-head meetings.
The Wizards have been dealing with injuries all season long. This time, it’s been Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. who have been out.
John Wall has picked up the slack for both players and has led the Wizards to 4 straight wins as he comes in off a 22 point, 13 assist performance.
Wall has been consistently putting up numbers like this, making his teammates better with all the assists he’s been dishing out.
Washington has done a phenomenal job on the defensive end during this winning streak. This team has allowed 104.6 points against this season, but have held their last 3 opponents to under 100 points.
Washington brings in a 7-7 SU record inside the Verizon Center and has also gone 8-6 ATS in those 14 games.
