The Clippers face the Warriors in the wake of the streak-ending defeat in Denver last night. How will L.A. respond to the loss against a very good Golden State team?

Caron Butler is not with the team because of a family situation. Matt Barnes will get the start in his absence. The Clippers, with Grant Hill still not ready for game action, will be thin at the small forward position tonight, but will likely go small with Jamal Crawford getting minutes at the three. This is both good and bad against the Warriors, who love to play Jarrett Jack, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson together in some of their most effective lineups.
