So far so good for the Clippers in scrimmages, as they followed up their opening win over the Orlando Magic with another win over the Washington Wizards on Saturday. We all know the seeding games will be another tune-up of sorts for the contenders, but with so many players out of action in the run-up for the Clippers, bench players have been getting plenty of run and that is likely to continue in this game.
Where: Orlando, Florida
When: 1 pm PT
How to watch: Fox Sports Prime Ticket in Los Angeles viewing region
Clippers: Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell, Landry Shamet, Lou Williams - OUT
Kings: Marvin Bagley - OUT; Harrison Barnes, Alex Len - QUESTIONABLE
Ivica Zubac is finally in the bubble, but it’s unclear if he’ll be cleared to play for this game or not. Considering the timing, he may not quite be ready to go, which means the likes of Joakim Noah and JaMychal Green could get some more minutes against the Kings in case they need to play more minutes than expected in the seeding games.
The Kings are gearing up to fight for their playoff lives in the seeding games, as Luke Walton’s team are the 11th seed in the Western Conference, but they’re only 3.5 games out of 8th place. So they’re pretty motivated, but they’re going to be without Marvin Bagley as he’s out for the season. Expect the intensity in this game to ratchet up a bit with the real games set to start in just a few games.
