The Los Angeles Clippers still have their sights set on a Pacific Division title, but they trail their crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers by a game with just three games remaining. Chris Paul and the Clippers pretty much need to win out and hope the Lakers lost two of three games. The Clippers have two road games remaining, but their weekend scheduled consists of their final home game of the year.
Sunday - New Orleans at Clippers (6:30 p.m. PDT, Prime Ticket, NBA TV): The Clippers welcome to Staples Center the New Orleans Hornets, owners of the worst record in the Western Conference (20-43). New Orleans is just 9-21 on the road this season, including a 97-85 loss to the Clippers at Staples Center on March 26. The Clippers lost 97-90 to the Hornets in New Orleans on March 22.
That's it for the Clippers at home until the postseason. They end their regular season with road games Tuesday in Atlanta and Wednesday in New York.
