Less than 48 hours after pulling off one of the most important wins in the history of the franchise, the Los Angeles Clippers hit the road to take on the well-rested Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Semifinals on Monday night. The best-of-seven series has all the ingredients to be a stellar one.
Houston defeated the Dallas Mavericks in the first round in five games, the last of which a 103-94 win April 28. The Clippers and Rockets split the four meetings during the regular season, and have only met once in the playoffs before, and went the full five games in the 1993 Western Conference quarterfinals.
