The Los Angeles Clippers look for their fourth straight home win Wednesday night as they host the Miami Heat at Staples Center. Both teams are coming off road losses Tuesday night. The Clippers beat Miami last season in Los Angeles 111-105, and have beaten the Heat three straight times in Los Angeles.
This is the only meeting of the year between the Heat and Clippers, as the lockout-shortened season has produced a schedule heavier on intra-conference games. Here are the probable starters for Wednesday's game:
Point Guard: Mario Chalmers
Shooting Guard: Dwyane Wade
Small Forward: LeBron James
Power Forward: Chris Bosh
Center: Joel Anthony
James has averaged 23.1 points per game in his career against the Clippers (16 games), his lowest scoring average against any NBA team.
Point Guard: Chris Paul
Shooting Guard: Chauncey Billups
Small Forward: Caron Butler
Power Forward: Blake Griffin
Center: DeAndre Jordan
The Clippers have sold out 16 straight home games, dating back to last year.
