Preview: Warriors at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers surrendered homecourt advantage by failing to execute down the stretch in Game 1. The Clippers will attempt to clean up those mistakes and keep the Golden State Warriors from gaining a commanding lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference series when they host Game 2 on Monday. Los Angeles managed to contain Stephen Curry in Game 1 but Blake Griffin battled foul trouble and was outplayed by David Lee.

Preview: Nuggets at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers attempt to set a franchise record for victories in a season when they visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. Los Angeles matched the record of 56 wins set last season with Saturday’s 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings and can break the mark with a victory in either of its last two games. The Clippers will be the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference if they lose once more or if Oklahoma City wins its final game.

Preview: Kings at Clippers

(Updated: UPDATES Clippers playoff situation after Oklahoma City victory in Para 1 and 2) The Los Angeles Clippers look to keep alive their slim hopes at a No. 2 seed in the Western Conference when they host the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. The Clippers' chances at moving up a spot before the playoffs began were virtually wiped away when they dropped a 107-101 decision to second-place Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Los Angeles enters this one trailing the Thunder, a likely second-round opponent, by three games with three to play.

Preview: Clippers at Mavericks

Nobody on the Los Angeles Clippers should be looking forward to playing the second of back-to-back games more than Chris Paul. He’ll take the floor Thursday against the host Dallas Mavericks a night after delivering the worst-shooting performance in Clippers’ history, missing all 12 of his field-goal attempts in Wednesday’s two-point loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. The loss backed the Clippers within a game of the fourth-place Houston Rockets in the Western Conference standings.

Preview: Bucks at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers never won 50 games prior to last season and are just a victory away from reaching the mark again entering Monday’s home game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers posted 56 victories a season ago for the best-ever campaign by a franchise that began play in 1970-71 as the Buffalo Braves and can threaten that mark with a strong finish. Los Angeles has won 12 of 13 games while the Bucks have lost seven straight.

Preview: Clippers at Jazz

L.A. won all four games against Utah last year and the first two this season, most recently a 102-87 win at Staples Center in Feb. 1.
