Clippers vs. Suns: L.A. looks to continue franchise-best winning streak in Phoenix

The Clippers have not won in Phoenix since 2007 and they have an opportunity to end that streak when they face the Suns on Sunday.

The Los Angeles Clippers have won a franchise-record 12 straight games but that isn't the streak that they're focused on heading into their game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday at 5 p.m. PT.

The Clippers have not won in Phoenix since April 17, 2007 and will use Sunday as an opportunity to continue their winning ways while ending their losing streak in Phoenix.

The Suns had won four games in a row before losing to Portland on Saturday, 96-93.

The Suns will have to deal with arguably the deepest team in the NBA in the Clippers. During the Clippers' streak, their bench is averaging 44.8 points, 19.2 rebounds and 10.8 assists behind the exploits of Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes, Eric Bledsoe, Lamar Odom and others. The Clippers' bench put up 56 points against the Suns last time they played them, so the Suns know all about their vaunted depth.

The Clippers enter the game with a Pacific Division-leading 20-6 record while the Suns are 11-16 but sport a 9-5 home record.
