LA Clippers hoping to whip NBA's worst team

Published Add your comment

It would be easy to say that tonight is a question of how many points the LA Clippers will win by against Milwaukee Bucks (5pm PST, 7pm CST), but it's really not as simple as that in the NBA

If there is to be an elite team that the Bucks might get a shock win against, the Clippers might just be the side because of their poor road form. 

The last time LA hit the road for a long series was in December and they won four of seven. This time around they are 4-2, and we'll see tonight whether there are any tired bodies out there. 

This may be the Bucks chance to pounce. But that doesn't mean they will catch the Clippers unawares, with Jamal Crawford knowing fully well what his team have to do. 

"Whenever you can go over .500 on the road, it’s good,” Crawford told the LA Times. “We went 4-3 on our last trip and we weren’t satisfied. Now we’re 4-2 with an opportunity to go 5-2. It shows growth.”

Crawford also added that his team-mate Blake Griffin is becoming unstoppable. 

"This is the best Blake Griffin we've seen and he's going to continue to get better," Crawford added.

Milwaukee have lost 11 of 12 games in January, and Saturday's 112-87 home loss to Atlanta caused coach Larry Drew to hold a 21-minute meeting afterwards with the NBA's worst team.

"This was a totally, totally unacceptable performance," Drew said. "Do we have anything inside that will allow us to go out and compete at a high level?"
