Considering the recent winning streak, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers have been in superior form than any of the teams in the NBA.
They have been coming up with impressive performances in their last few games, where the Warriors have won nine games on a trot and the Clippers are not too far off with seven wins in succession.
One could expect a huge game between the two when they meet one another later tonight at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. An entertaining game looms large, for neither of the teams are under any pressure after having sealed the Playoff spot.
They have been very consistent throughout the season. Warriors have won 60 games during the season and only lost 13, while the Clippers have been decent with 49 wins and 25 losses.
Both teams have some huge stars who have done very well for their respective sides, as a result of which they find themselves in such a comfortable position. The Warriors currently lead the Western Conference, while the Clippers lie on fifth position.
Jamal Crawford, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have been the star performers for the Clippers, as they average 16.4 points, 21.8 and 18.8 respectively during the season. If these players show similar form against the Warriors, the conference leaders could be in some trouble.
But, the Warriors have some great players in their ranks as well, such as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Both the players have been in great form and their shooting has been terrific throughout the season, hence they average 23.7 and 21.7 points per game.
Warriors have been blowing out teams in the league and their last game against Milwaukee Bucks was no different with the score reading 108-95. Both the Warriors' stars Curry and Thompson scored 25 and 21 points respectively during the game.
Expect both these players to go all out against the Clippers as well.
Curry wants to head into the Playoffs with a feel-good factor by winning as many matches as possible in the remainder of the season.
"Wins and losses might not matter when it comes to the standings but we want to win as many games as possible and we want to feel good about how we're going into the playoffs," NBA website quoted Curry as saying. "That's the test for us over these next nine games."
But, one thing is for sure, one of the team's winning streak will come to an end at Staples Center tonight .
