The Los Angeles Clippers (34-28) welcome Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans (36-26) winners of eight straight to Staples Center for a national televised game. The Pelicans currently sit a surprising fourth in the Western Conference while riding an eight game winning streak, despite losing All-Star Center Demarcus Cousins to a season ending injury.
The Clippers are currently a half game out of the playoff picture, behind the Denver Nuggets for the eight seed in the Western Conference. They have been playing well since the trade that sent Blake Griffin to Detroit.
The Clippers are 9-3 since February.
The Clippers will have their hands full tonight with All-Star Anthony Davis. Who is averaging 35 points, 15 rebounds, and 3 blocks over his past five. Davis who is arguably a top 3 player in the league is a guy who can, and will fill the stat sheet regardless of who he is playing against.
The Pelicans will look to win their ninth in a row, and the Clippers will look to make their push into the playoff picture with this win.
The Clippers will be short handed with two of their starters out (D. Gallinair, Avery Bradley) due to injury.
