5 home games in a row
The LA Clippers will kick off March with a 5 game home stretch which could set the tone for the rest of the month. They open the month with a game against the New York Knicks. This should be a comfortable win for the Clips. They have won their last 10 games against the Knicks and should make it 12 in a row on March 2. They then face off against the Brooklyn Nets two days later. And they should win this won quite comfortably. Despite having a productive off-season, the Nets are not expected to cause any trouble to the Clippers.
Their next game will be against the New Orleans Pelicans who could be challenging the Clippers for a playoffs spot. They have a front-court of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins which is complimented by a solid back-court. This could prove to be a tricky game for the Clips. Both teams could have a lot on the line, come March 6. And it will make for a very interesting match-up between the two playoff hopefuls.
The Clippers will then get a three day break before taking on the Cleveland Cavaliars, who will very likely be coming into this game having all but sealed their playoff berth in the East. Meanwhile, the Clips will still have a lot to play for and they could steal a hard fought win against LeBron James and co.
They will then face Orlando Magic on the very next night and they should be able to grab an important win on Marreese Speights’ return to LA.
