Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers Live
Once again plagued by injuries, the Clippers are not exactly where they wanted to be halfway through the season. Hoping to make a run to the playoffs, Chris Kaman and the Los Angeles Clippers will travel to Ohio to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday at 11 p.m. GMT.
Although some might have criticized the Cavs’ off-season additions when the team struggled earlier in this year’s NBA campaign, things turned around as the season went on. More precisely, Cleveland is currently holding on to the best record in the league at 35-11 and has been playing like a legitimate championship contender over the past two months. Moreover, it should be noted that the franchise’s front-office is trying to arrange a trade that could send power forward Antawn Jamison to Cleveland before the trade deadline in February. Unsurprisingly, reigning MVP LeBron James continues to excite fans around the league putting up no less than 29.9 points, 7.8 assists, 7.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals per contest.
The Clippers on the other hand did not improve as much as they were hoping before the season got underway, yet, being only three games below the .500 mark is not too bad considering the circumstances. Most importantly, number one overall pick Blake Griffin will most likely not play a single game in his rookie season due to a lengthy knee injury. Likewise, starting center Chris Kaman missed a considerable amount of games which made things even more difficult in the competitive Western Conference. Nonetheless, the Clippers are still only 4.5 games out of the playoff picture and still have plenty of time to get their act together. That said, there is no doubt that the Cavs are the undisputed favorites when they face Chris Kaman and company on Sunday night. Even though the Clippers have pulled off solid defensive efforts on most nights, containing LeBron James and company might be a little bit too much to ask for.
