This cross-conference matchup includes two teams that stand in the middle of their conferences respectively.
The Clippers look to improve after the loss of their star player Blake Griffin, who is out for atleast a month.
The Heat look to keep their winning ways at home rolling going into the all-star break
The Clippers are coming off a big loss to their team with the loss of Blake Griffin who encountered an off the court issue that lead to a hand injury.
The Clippers are currently 4-1 in their past 5 games while averaging 100.6 points per game and playing great defense giving up 93.2 points per game during that stretch.
The Clippers are now led with premier point guard Chris Paul. Paul is having a typical year, averaging 18.9 points and 9.5 assists per game.
Beside him is the scoring shooting guard J.J. Redick. Redick is averaging 16 points per game thus far this season.
The Clippers have been playing well as of late, but they dropped their last game at home to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The youngsters Wiggins and Towns were able to take down the Griffin-less Clips.
In the game Chris Paul had 22 points and 8 dimes and Deandre Jordan had 18 points and 15 boards. The Clippers are currently in 4th place in the Western Conference and look to stay afloat after losing their star player for a few weeks.
The Miami heat are coming into the game also on a solid streak of games they’ve been playing. The Heat are 4-1 in the past 5 games but they have all been very close. The Heat are averaging 101.8 points per game while giving up 100.2 on averaging during that stretch.
The Miami Heat are led by their new “big three” which consists of Chris Bosh, Dewayne Wade, and Hassan Whiteside. Bosh is leading the squad in scoring, he is averaging 19.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.
Wade is having a stellar year as he has been staying healthy, he is averaging 18.7 points per game. The big man Whiteside is averaging 12.3 points and 11.1 rebounds on the year.
The Heat were in action last against the Dallas Mavericks where they defeated the Mavs on the road 93-90 in a close matchup. Dewayne Wade led the Heat with 18 points to go with 8 dimes. Bosh also poured in 20 points of his own.

Free NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams are looking to end the first-half of the season off on the right note. I look for the Clippers to continue their ways going into Miami on Sunday. These teams right now are very similar asides from one component, Chris Paul.
I expect Paul to cause havoc on both ends of this game and I do not think that Goran Dragic will be able to keep up. In the battle of big men I see Whiteside being a “poor mans” Deandre Jordan. Clippers win this game as they have the advantage in the front and backcourt.
