Game 69 Preview: Brooklyn Nets (40-28) at Los Angeles Clippers (47-22)

Chris Paul has had a great season so far for the Clippers, and is a big reason as to why they are leading the West's Pacific Division at the moment

When: 10:30 pm; Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Where: Staples Center; Los Angeles, CA

TV: YES Network

Tonight, in the third leg of the Nets' eight-game and 17-day circus road trip, they take on the Los Angeles Clippers, hailing from Lob City. Featuring one of the best point guards in the NBA (Chris Paul) and one of the most athletic and downright frightful frontcourt pairings the league has seen in awhile (Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan). On the other hand, the Nets also have an elite point guard (D-Will) and an offensively-gifted center (Brook Lopez), in addition to a former All-Star shooting guard (Joe Johnson) with some good supporting pieces and bench guys. Yep, solid matchups for the game this evening at Staples.

Probable Lineups

BKN- Williams (PG), Johnson (SG), Wallace (SF), Evans (PF), Brook Lopez (C)

LAC- Paul (PG), Green (SG), Butler (SF), Griffin (PF), Jordan (C)

Final Thoughts

The Clippers have alternated between winning and losing each game for their last eight games, losing one game to win the next game just to lose the next one and so on and so forth. Their last game was a win over the PHiladelphia 76ers, so is a loss for LA in the SoCal air tonight?
