Clippers go in search of 14th straight

December 24, 2012 11:06:33 UK

The Los Angeles Clippers receive a high profile Christmas home game when they welcome in the Denver Nuggets to the Staples Center in downtown LA.

Blake Griffin will be looking to bring some Christmas joy to the Clippers' fans.

The Pacific Division leaders are three and a half games ahead of the Warriors after traveling to the US Airways Center in Phoenix and defeating the Suns 103-77.

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul each had double-doubles for the visitors and LA emptied their bench to give considerable playing time to Lamar Odom, Matt Barnes, Ronny Turiaf, Ryan Hollins, Eric Bledsoe and Jamal Crawford in the rout.

The Clippers, who have yet to lose in December, host the Boston Celtics before a home and home series with the Utah Jazz closes out the month.

The Warriors, who play the Clippers twice in the first week of January, travel to Salt Lake City the day after Christmas to play the Utah Jazz at the Energy Solutions Arena.

Golden State is looking to rebound from their home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday evening when Steve Nash returned from injury and helped the visitors to a 118-115 overtime victory at the Oracle Arena.

Despite the win the Lakers trail Golden State by four and half games, and the Clippers by eight.

The New York Knicks make their one visit to play the Lakers in LA on Christmas in the second game of the five contests scheduled.

The Knicks then head on to Phoenix to play the Suns the following day and the Lakers also leave town on their way to the Pepsi Center in Denver to visit the Nuggets.

The Clippers are 7501.00 to win the NBA Championship, with Lakers 10001.00.
