Matchup to Watch

Kemba Walker vs. Chris Paul: Walker has assembled a string of four games with 20 or more points in each. Paul is about as good a scorer, but more of a facilitator than Walker.



The Clippers have benefitted from starting Chauncey Billups as their off-guard. That puts two quality ball-handlers/passers on the court together frequently.

Did you know?

The Clippers are one of the West’s dominant teams this season, but that’s clearly not the case historically. This is just the ninth time in their history – dating back to when they were the Buffalo Braves in 1970 – that the Clippers have reached 40 victories in a season.
