So many Western Conference games tonight! I'm not even going to list them all. Suffice it to say that of the 15 teams in the Western Conference, 12 of them are in action. Only the Clippers and Kings (who met last night and will meet again tomorrow) and the Timberwolves are not playing tonight.
The big games have some decent potential for good outcomes for the Clippers. The Grizzlies, currently the biggest threat to catch the Clippers in fourth place, are playing the Heat in Miami. Phoenix is at Denver, and a Phoenix loss would inch the Clippers a bit closer to clinching a playoff berth. Then the Lakers host the Rockets at STAPLES tonight.
