The line for this game has not been set (self-edited correction: the Clippers are favored (-9.5), because forward Nikola Vucevic is questionable and apparently Vegas has a lot of respect for him. Good to know. All information can help in the future folks.
The Clippers were recently hit with the news that franchise point guard Chris Paul will be out for probably six weeks; they will have trouble holding the fort until then, but it would still surprise me if they ultimately miss the playoffs. Paul will be back on the court soon enough to right the ship, and the only meaningful thing he will miss is the All Star game. He honestly probably has bigger goals this season, so he is not sweating an exhibition game. If the line ends up below five would go with the Clippers at home in this one, because Kia spokesman (sorry, little jab there) and power forward Blake Griffin will probably still be playing angry after the recent Carmelo Anthony trade rumors.
That is all for previews today, but thanks for stopping by and might have some Rant Sports Prep for you later on.
