The Clippers won convincingly the last time these franchises met and will undoubtedly go in as favorites to win this game ahead of the Warriors. Still, given how well these two teams are doing right now, this clash could go either way.
Team News - LA Clippers
The LA Clippers go into this game with relatively few injury concerns. The franchise will have almost a whole roster of players to pick from against the Golden State Warriors. The only player on the team's injury list is Jay Scrubb, who has been sidelined for a lengthy duration.
The 20-year-old has been recovering from a serious foot injury, and reports suggest that he isn't likely to be back for two months at the very least.
Still, things are looking pretty good for the LA Clippers ahead of this game.
Injured: Jay Scrubb
Team News - Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have some serious injury concerns ahead of their clash against the LA Clippers.
Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole are unlikely to feature in the upcoming game due to ankle injuries they suffered in earlier games. Curry not making an appearance could be the biggest concern for the franchise at the moment.
The 32-year-old is the only superstar the team has, and he has practically been carrying the team all by himself this season.
If Stephen Curry doesn't play in this match, it will be nearly impossible for the Warriors to win this game.
Injured: Alen Smailagic, Klay Thompson, Marquese Chriss
Doubtful: Jordan Poole, Stephen Curry
