The LA Clippers look to build momentum on Monday after an exhilarating win against the Wizards.  The Raptors visit the Clippers on Star Wars night in Staple’s Center on the second night of a back to back.

LA Clippers, after showing some life and fight, hope to hold off the second best team in the East as Kylo Lowry and the Raps come in to LA on a six game winning streak.  To add the excitement the Clippers host the Raptors on Star Wars night.

(Editor’s note: There are a ton of Star Wars puns in here.)

Attendees will receive Milos Teodosic Jedi bobbleheads; perfect timing as the starting guard might make his return after playing only two games this season. If he makes his return the Death Starting lineup should look something like; Teodosic, Rivers, Johnson, Gallinari, and Jordan.

After a huge 35 point game, including a game winning 3, Clippers Sith-man Lou Williams will look to repeat another big performance.  Keep an eye on the two Wookiee guards off the bench for the Clips as well.  Point guard Obi-Juwan Evans showed off a little more range on Saturday, hitting a couple nice looking jumpers.

Montrezl Harrell will be looking to do another good Jabba coming off the bench for the Clippers.  The young big man has been a huge spark on the second unit and looks to keep the energy going.  The second unit will have to hustle against a young, talented bench from Toronto.

The starters will have their hands full with a very good Raptors squad, the biggest mismatch possibly being between Gallinari and Serge Ibaka.  Gallinari looked better on Saturday but will have to be smart with his shots against one of the best shot blockers in the league.

Despite not having traveled from far, far away the Raptors will have to fight off fatigue to win.  They played Sunday in a blow out win against the Kings and now face a hungry Clippers squad.  Are Darth Rivers and the Clippers Fett up with losing?  Can they Endor a very good Raptors team and Force a win in Clipper Lando?  Tune in to tonight’s 7:30pm tip-off to find out!
