Clippers host Warriors in Pacific showdown
(AP) — Surprising Golden State tries to run its winning streak to five-games when the Warriors visit the NBA Pacific Division leading Clippers tonight. Los Angeles tops the division by three games over the Warriors after holding off the Lakers last night behind 30 points and 13 assists from Chris Paul.
That’s part of a 10-game Saturday schedule on the pro hard courts.
Indiana will try to pull out of virtual deadlock with Chicago for the NBA Central Division lead when the Pacers host Milwaukee. Indiana is just percentage points behind the Bulls, while Milwaukee is two games back of both after dropping their last three games.
San Antonio is back home tonight to host Philadelphia after having their seven-game winning streak snapped in New York Thursday night. Despite the loss, the Spurs still go into tonight’s action with a 3 ½ game lead over Memphis for the Southwest Division lead.
