LAC vs WAS Dream11: Los Angeles Clippers will be looking for a response when they host Washington Wizards for an inter-conference NBA matchup at Staples Center, tomorrow, on Monday morning (IST).
Los Angeles Clippers: If the form can be used as a prelude to predict the outcome, then the Los Angeles Clippers had the win written all over their encounter against the San Antonio Spurs. But Kawhi Leonard and Co. came out second-best from AT&T Center, losing 107-97 and reminding us that even superteams, with players playing with great momentum and a gung-ho brand of Basketball, can lose on any given day.
It was Clippers’ first defeat in 8 games, but Doc Rivers’ team remain rooted at 3rd in the Western Conference. Clippers are 11-1 in home games, only losing to Milwaukee Bucks and co.
Washington Wizards: The Wizards are certainly losing the momentum following yet another defeat in the last game. The 125-103 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers was their 3rd in the last four games, and now they find themselves at 10th and outside the playoff positions heading into this game.
Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers have met a total of 120 times before their next encounter. The Wizards hold away over the Clippers 76 times in those games, with the Clippers winning 44 times.
Both the team split up the last season’s series 1-1, and this is the story of the last three seasons.

Paul George: His influence and numbers both may have dropped in the last few games, but George is a monster player, top-five when on the song. Leaving him out of your team may not be a good idea.
Bradley Beal: Another player who is racking up an insane amount of numbers this season is Bradley beal. He is racking up the 5th best numbers in NBA with 28.3 points per game.
Not only the impact players: Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell: The duo features off the bench, but they are as good as any player in the starting five, across the whole NBA. Williams, in particular, is a front runner to win the coveted est sixth men in NBA.
