The Atlanta Hawks have registered eight straight wins - the longest streak amongst Eastern Conference teams - and have surged into the top 4 of the standings. In their last game, the Hawks beat the LA Lakers 99-94, which improved their season record to 22-20.
John Collins had 27 points and a season-high 16 rebounds, while Trae Young scored 14 points and provided 11 assists on the night. With the kind of form the Hawks are in, they will be fancying their chances of toppling the LA Clippers.
The LA Clippers, on the other hand, will look to build a winning streak, something they haven't been able to achieve for a month now. They decimated the Charlotte Hornets 125-98 in their last outing, thanks to Paul George's brilliant performance.
George scored a team-high 21 points, provided five assists, and claimed ten rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard added 17 points as the Clippers claimed their 27th win of the campaign.
This will be the second meeting between the two sides this season. The Atlanta Hawks were victorious in their previous encounter as they beat the LA Clippers 108-99. Kawhi Leonard and the crew will be eager to avenge that defeat and hope they can carry their momentum forward from the last game against the Hornets.
