Griffin, Clippers In Houston For Final Road Game Of Season

The Los Angeles Clippers close out their road schedule Saturday night, playing the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center. The Clippers, at 31-49, need to win their final two games of the season to avoid 50 losses for the fourth straight season. They face a Rockets team that has lost two straight contest, but is well rested, at least relatively.

Houston has had two days off since their last game, a 101-93 loss in New Orleans on Wednesday. The Clippers played, and lost, Friday night in Dallas. On the season the Clippers are 9-31 on the road, while the Rockets are 24-15 at home this season.

Blake Griffin is one of just four rookies in NBA history with 1,800 points, 900 rebounds, and 250 assists, joining three players with Los Angeles ties: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1969-70), UCLA's Sidney Wicks (1971-72), and Elgin Baylor (1958-59). Griffin has 969 rebounds on the season, and needs 31 boards to reach 1,000 on the season, a mark that hasn't been reached by a Clipper since Swen Nater in San Diego 30 seasons ago.

Tonight's 5:30 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. The Clippers are 1-2 this season against Houston. Eric Gordon is listed as questionable with a sprained left ankle.
