The Clippers are just a 15-15 road team this season. This is a tricky spot for LA as they enter New Orleans on the back end of a back to back and they will be playing their third game in four nights. New Orleans is rested having last played on Saturday night. The Clippers opened up this recent string of games playing at Memphis on Friday night which resulted in a loss as the team when they went to their bench in the second quarter coughed up the game. They then played a Sunday afternoon game at Oklahoma City and came away with an emotional victory over a national television audience. LA put a lot into those two games and now must wheel back the next day and play at a young, energetic and hard trying New Orleans team. There is concern for Los Angles as Chris Paul is bothered by a thumb injury and may not suit up for this game. Laying points on the road is a difficult task especially when the favored road team is only .500 on the highway after 30 games and rank 25th and sixth last in the NBA in both three point and free throw shooting. The Clippers three point thread in J.J. Redick is listed as out for a month as he is experiencing back problems New Orleans have been competitive in recent games losing close calls at Washington and Charlotte as they return home.
