Clippers logo in 1978.
Three notes of some significance heading into tonight's contest:
1. The Clippers have won 14 straight games. It's the longest win streak in franchise history, and at 22-6 they have the best record in the NBA. They're good, but they're not that good. LA is due for a loss this evening.
2. Jamal Crawford is sneaky good. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul get all the hype, but the veteran shooting guard is the #2 scorer on the team at 16.5 PPG off the bench, and on track to win his second consecutive 6th man of the year award.
3. The Jason Collins experiment has got to end soon. His minutes in 3 games as a starter: 23, 15, and 13, respectively. At this rate he'll be back to "DNP CD" in the next week or so. In his three starts he also has exactly the same number of fouls (15) and turnovers (3) as he does points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks combined, 18.
