Clippers-Blazers Series Preview
The Los Angeles Clippers will take on the Portland Trail Blazers in a 4/5 Western Conference matchup. The Blazers have had a surprisingly good season despite losing LaMarcus Aldridge in free agency. The Clippers are out to prove they are one of the best teams in the West.
Los Angeles won three of four games this season against the Blazers. Portland’s weakness has been their play on the road. They will need to win one of the first two games at the Staples Center to stay in the series.
