The Clippers are playing perhaps their best basketball of the season, having won 10 of their last 12 games, but they have not played well in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors.
The Clippers have lost their last four games to the Warriors at Oracle Arena and 14 of their last 16 there.
The Clippers hope to change that when they face the Warriors tonight in Oakland.
After a 10-game winning streak, the Warriors have struggled lately, losing six of their last nine games.
Since this is a Pacific Division game and the two teams have had some hotly contested games recently that included shoving matches, technicals and ejections, the Clippers know they will get the best that the Warriors have to offer.
