Tuesday’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers wasn’t the worst loss of the season. That happened on Saturday in Minnesota. Still, the LA Clippers showed some flaws against an Eastern Conference playoff team. With another one on the schedule tonight in the Boston Celtics, the Clips need to win convincingly to enter All-Star break on the right foot. A win would put them back in second place, just half a game ahead of the Denver Nuggets.
Last time the Clippers faced the Celtics, they won in a 107-104 overtime thriller.
Tonight all starts with Paul George, who scored 25 points in the previous win versus Boston.
