Clippers Host Cavaliers In Matinee Affair At Staples Center

The Los Angeles Clippers today look to snap a two-game losing streak, and gain a measure of revenge against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Staples Center. On February 11, Cleveland snapped their NBA-record 26-game losing streak with an overtime win over the Clippers. That was part of the Clippers' 11-game road trip last month, but now they are home playing the second game of a four-game homestand.

The Clippers have actually lost nine straight to the Cavs, though the first eight of those games featured LeBron James. This Cleveland team has the worst record in the league at 13-54, though they are 5-9 since their record losing streak. Baron Davis returns to Staples Center for the first time since the Clippers traded him to Cleveland, while Mo Williams and Jamario Moon get their first look at the Cavs since the deal.

Davis has averaged 14.3 points and 4.3 assists in four games with Cleveland, though he is doubtful tonight with back spasms. Randy Foye of the Clippers has made 24 consecutive free throws. Blake Griffin is one double-double shy of 55 for the season, which would tie Elton Brand (2001-2002) for the Clippers franchise record.
