Clippers Seeking 10th Straight Win vs Heat

The streaking Los Angeles Clippers have strung together nine-straight victories despite operating at less than 100 percent and have an opportunity to push that number to double-digits with the Miami Heat in town Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Heat are 4-1 SU in their last five games against the Clippers.
  • The Heat are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games after a loss.
  • The visiting team is 3-10 SU in its last 13 games in this matchup.

All-Star power forward Blake Griffin has missed the team’s last eight games with a quad injury, but the Clips are doing just fine in his absence. L.A. is averaging 110.5 points during that span. Before you get too high on the Clippers, however, keep this in mind: none of the teams Doc Rivers’ crew have faced during the streak boast winning records.

Miami (22-16 SU) is set to begin its toughest stretch of the season, as 11 of the Heat’s upcoming 13 games are on the road. Dwayne Wade and company are coming off back-to-back losses to Utah and Golden State.

L.A. held off a scrappy New Orleans Pelicans squad 114-111 in overtime in their last outing which saw a nice string of covers come to an end. The Clippers had managed to cover the closing spread in eight straight heading into that tilt.
