The Los Angeles Clippers Try And Own The Town

The Los Angeles Clippers are hot on the heels of the crosstown Lakers for first place in the NBA’s Pacific Division, trailing only by a half-game and tied in the loss column.

Los Angeles is playing well right now—extremely well in fact, having taken 13 of their last 15, so today they get the up-close look from TheSportsNotebook as we continue to prepare for the NBA playoffs.
