Wednesday’s Raptors vs. Clippers game is very important for more than one reason

There’s a bit of a mood around the Clippers right now, I think. Is that fair to say? In the common parlance, this “mood” is perhaps not good or bad, but it does exist — as ineffable as it may be to describe. This other team from Los Angeles, fresh off adding both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, is currently 17-7, good for second place in the bloodthirsty West. They’ve got talent, but are just hanging on.

The Clips also recently came off a shellacking at the hands of the East-leading Bucks, the kind of team they’re likely going to have to solve if their championship aspirations are for real.
