Head coach Doc Rivers has not been happy with the Los Angeles Clippers attitude when things are not going their way, and you have to wonder whether this is an issue that can be corrected or if this is just who they are. They take their show to Philly tonight and try to find some momentum against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Here is the TV info for that one that tips off at 7 pm EST.

Chris Paul had a quote that mentioned Philly, and so do not be surprised if the Clippers who are favored (-8.5) come out with guns a-blazing in the first quarter.
“At some point enough is enough,” Paul said to ESPN after the latest loss. “It’ll be interesting to see how we come out in the Philly game. I feel like I’m thinking too much, which I shouldn’t. We got to fix it. We’re going to try to make it as quick as possible.”
We will have to see how quick that is, but betting that the wheel starts to turn against Philly. Paul was my MVP favorite at the start of the year, but the Clippers have not looked as sharp in the early season as expected.
The Eastern conference is a pretty good bet to get a win for any of the Western teams, so have to go with the Clippers on this one until I see the East show a little bit of self respect.
