The Clippers continue their east coast road trip when they travel to Washington D.C. to take on the Wizards.
Both teams are coming into this game with momentum each winning their last two games.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. The Clippers won both games last year.
Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers started out the season blazing hot. Experts were saying how they were going to give Golden State a run for their money out west. Now the Clippers have cooled down a bit but are still 20-7 on the season.
In their last 10 games the Clippers are 6-4. They come into this game however winning their last four including a win over Portland.
The Clippers are led by the big three of Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul.
The Clippers go as those three go.
One of the biggest surprises this year out of of those three is Jordan’s free throw shooting. He is shooting 54 percent from the charity strike, which is a big improvement over years past.
One thing to watch in this game is Luc Mbah a Moute is out Sunday. He is one of the best defenders on the team and a starter, so they will need to find someone to replace him.
After starting out the season as a dominate defense, the Clippers have not been playing as well as of late, but still are very good.
The Clippers have played well so far on the road this season coming into this game with a record of 11-3.
The Washington Wizards have been playing well as of late. They started the season off terribly and there was talk if they should trade John Wall and Bradley Beal and start over. But they have finally figured it out as of late.
Beal and Wall have really complemented each other in the back court as of late and it has led to a 6-4 record over the last 10 games.
Another big improvement for the Wizards has been their offense. They were really having problems scoring to start the season but have picked that up. Over their last five games the Wizards have scored over 106 points per game and shot over 49 percent from the field.
On the defensive end the Wizards have given up 106 points per game. Over the last five that number has improved to 103.
For the Wizards to win this game they need to score points and score them early. The Clippers seem to dominate teams when they are winning so the Wizards can not dig themselves into a hole.
On the season the Wizards are 9-6 at home.
