Clippers Seek Fifth Straight Win, Facing Nets In New Jersey

The Los Angeles Clippers will try to win their fifth straight game for the first time in nearly five years tonight as they face the New Jersey Nets at Prudential Center. The Clippers last won five straight games from November 2-12, 2006. The Clippers have won the first two games of their five-game road trip, that will also take them to Washington and Memphis.

Steve Perrin of Clips Nation takes a look at the Clippers, and likes what he sees:

Last 39 games. The Clippers are 20-19 in their last 39 games. That's almost half an NBA season. That's including a 2-14 February. That's with a significant number of player games lost to injury between Chris Kaman and Eric Gordon and Craig Smith and Randy Foye. In fact, that's with only one of those 39 with Kaman and Gordon together for the entire game. It's also with more road games than home games over that span (18 home, 21 road). So the team has enjoyed a modicum of prolonged success, despite some significant obstacles. There's plenty of very real reasons to be hopeful about this team

The Nets have won three in a row, but will be without point guard Deron Williams for the second straight game, as he is with his wife after the birth of their child. The Clippers lost at home to the Nets 110-96 on November 15.
