Miami Heat Vs. Los Angeles Clippers: Starting Lineups

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:

Heat (8-2)

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.

Clippers (4-3)

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.
