The best way to beat bad weather is to not be in it.

The Clippers are considering altering their travel plans to avoid the effects of a storm that is expected to blanket the Northeast with heavy snow over the weekend.

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said his team might depart New York on Friday night after playing the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, depending on how the weather develops. The Clippers are scheduled to fly from New York to Toronto on Saturday afternoon before playing the Raptors on Sunday.

Clippers Center Cole Aldrich is familiar with weather disrupting plans in New York. He played for the Knicks last season when they had a game canceled against the Sacramento Kings because of a massive storm. The teams were forced to reschedule the game and play it later in the season.

"For us, being that this is the last road trip out East until the All-Star break, it's going to be good to get out whenever we can," Aldrich said. "If we've got to train, if we've got to sit on a damn bus, we've got to do whatever we need to do. We've got to get up there and play that game" against Toronto.
