Chris Paul is listed as questionable for the game as he deals with inflamed rib cartilage sustained in Monday's 102-87 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Paul went to the bench in the third quarter of that game and didn't return.

In Monday's game, the Clippers won the battle of the boards for the first time this season, outrebounding the Trail Blazers, 55-54. DeAndre Jordan had a season-high 24 rebounds, though he was also sent to the free-throw line a career-high 34 times -- he made 12 of those shots, tying Wilt Chamberlain's NBA record for most missed free throws (22) in a game.

Forward Paul George is averaging a career-high 27.2 points a game on 45.9% shooting and 8.1 rebounds for the Pacers. In his last three games, he's averaged 37.3 points. George is also shooting 45.5% from beyond the three-point line.

The Clippers won both of their games against the Pacers last season, though George missed those contests.
