**W / L and Stats as of 2/2/2016 before the Wolves - Lakers (but you can probably add a W for Wolves)**
The Clippers currently lead the season series 2-0, although the games have been closer than one might expect. When they last met in December, the Clips eeked out a 110-106 victory behind the strength of a 39-point fourth quarter. The Clippers were a stellar 26-29 from the charity stripe that night. The Clippers should be better than their last two match-ups would indicate.
Matchup to watch - DeAndre Jordan vs Karl Anthony Towns
The top performers in the previous match-up between these teams were the centers. Jordan posted 20 Pts, 12 Reb, 2 Stl, 4 Blk while Towns had 18 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk. With the emergence of Jordan during Griffin's absence, look for even more fireworks between the two towers in the middle.
We're Going Streaking!!
The Clippers are currently on a 4-game winning streak, which matches their second highest win streak of the season. This mean that a win tonight would be the second time this season they had a winning streak of 5 or more games. They had 4 such streaks last season. Three of those came after mid-January.
Grammy Road Trip
The Clippers are about to embark on the annual Grammy road trip. What is usually a brutal stretch is not quite as daunting this season. First, the Clippers will only be playing 4 games during that time frame. Usually, they are playing 6 or 7. All of those games will be played on the East Coast, but only two games will be played against teams with winning records.
Game day song of choice
So, I have to admit, I have no idea what this guy is saying in the lyrics. But the song title seems apt.
