The prolific run of success the LA Clippers have enjoyed this season does not appear to be coming to an end any time soon. After so many doubted and counted this team out after the James Harden trade, they have been proving everyone wrong ever since the early stages of the season.
With Sunday's incredible comeback win, the Clippers have now won 19 of their last 23 games and sit at fourth in the Western Conference, just a game and a half behind second place. On Tuesday night, they can take their impressive streak to an even higher level.
Hosting their rival Lakers at Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday, the Clippers will look to defeat the team in purple and gold for the first time this season, having lost the first two matchups. If they do, they will officially have the claim to the most wins in the regular season of any NBA team since the start of the 2011-12 season.
The Clippers can become the NBA's winningest team since 2011-12
As of right now, the Golden State Warriors are tied with the Clippers for the most wins in that stretch. An LA win on Tuesday would give the Clippers the outright title, and serve as a symbol of the winning culture this organization has built.
A lot of talented teams and individual players have come through the NBA over the course of the last 12 and a half years. Being able to claim more wins than anyone else during that time is no small matter, especially for a franchise that has historically been dubbed a loser.
Picking up the rights to the title of winningest team in the last dozen years against the Lakers would be an extremely poetic circumstance for the Clippers.
