Clippers look to reverse minor stumble

January 24, 2013 17:48:32 UK

The Los Angeles Clippers head out on the road to the US Airways Center in Phoenix on Thursday with a two-game losing streak following defeats to the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder.

The losses have dropped the Clippers to third in the Western Conference and LA are just 7-5 on the month after an undefeated December had many crowning the franchise with the NBA title.

The Clippers, now 7501.00 to win the NBA Championship, then move on to the Rose Garden in Portland for the front end of a back-to-back home and home series with the Trail Blazers over the weekend.

On Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs moved into a virtual tie with the Thunder atop the Western Conference with a 106-102 triumph over the visiting New Orleans Hornets at the AT & T Center.

Greivis Vasquez's double-double was not enough for New Orleans, as Tiago Splitter hit 10-of-11 from the floor for a game-high 25 points to lead the Spurs to their sixth consecutive victory. Tony Parker chipped in with an additional 24 as Tim Duncan missed the game with a sore knee and is considered day-to-day for the match up with the Dallas Mavericks on Friday.

The Spurs are 2.10 to win the NBA Championship.

The Golden State Warriors confirmed their status as a likely very dangerous No. 4 or 5 seed in the post-season when they became the first side to hand defeats to the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Stephen Curry stole an inbounds pass to clinch the 104-99 triumph over the Thunder at the Oracle Arena in Oakland and scored a team-high 31 points as the hosts moved back to within five points of the Clippers in the Pacific Division.
