Crucial four game road-trip

The Los Angeles Clippers begin their four game road trip with a stern test against the Minnesota Timberwolves on March 20. The Wolves have made some strong acquisitions in the off-season and will be sure to provide a tough match-up for the Clips. The arrival of Jimmy Butler should make them outside contenders in the West. And Butler along with Wiggins on the wing could prove to be too much for the Clippers in this crucial game of the season.

The Clippers will be back in action on the very next night in Wisconsin as they take on the Milwaukee Bucks. Led by future MVP contender Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks are set to be better than ever. Bucks have a young core filled with great potential. And they should be too strong for the Clippers on the night.

Next up for the Clippers will be the Indiana Pacers on March 23. The Pacers have endured a difficult off-season. They have lost their star man Paul George and have begun their rebuild. They are not likely to contend for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference this season. And the Clips should win this one fairly comfortably.

The Clippers will end their road trip against the Toronto Raptors two nights later. The Raptors should have no problem making it to the playoffs in the East. But the Los Angeles franchise should win this game with Blake Griffin leading the charge.
