After an intense All Star weekend for the LA, with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin taking center stage, they are currently at 25-18 and are in second place in the Pacific Division. They are one of the top teams in the West and continue to make a run for the playoffs as they are currently holding onto the 4th seed. As March rolled in, they continue to close games. If you bought Clippers tickets for the month of March, you would know that the team went 5-6 and had suffered a couple close losses to Western Conference rivals. They will need your support to rally back after these crushing defeats.
They started the month out with a 6 game road trip that started off with a win against the Sacramento Kings. Chris Paul had another stellar game with 22 points and the supporting cast certainly continued to contribute as well. Griffin, Butler, Foye and Williams scored in double figures and this helped them beat the Kings by 8 points in a 108-100 win.
They then flew to Phoenix to face suns in a surprisingly low scoring game. Griffin had the most points with 17 and Paul, Martin and Williams were able to score in double figures as well. Paul was able to drop 5 assists but Jared Dudley’s 22 points helped the Suns 81-78. After this loss, they will head to Houston to face the Rockets. Clipper tickets are available now for this event.
They arrived in Houston trying to redeem themselves after a tight loss against the Suns. Paul threw in a double double with 28 points 10 assists and 4 rebounds to help them pull out a tight win on the road. With a 105-103 win, they headed over to Minnesota expecting to get a close win.
Minnesota was on a hot streak as Kevin Love was coming off of a good game with 35 points and 10 rebounds. This battle between Love and Griffin was the center of attention but the team fell short despite Griffins 26 point and 12 rebounds performance. This was offset by Love’s 39 points and 17 rebounds. Almost all the games this year have been this electrifyingly exciting.
Two days later, the team headed to the East coast to face the New Jersey Nets. Foye, Griffin and Paul were able to score more than 20 points but they still ended up losing by a single point. Derron Williams’ double double helped edge the Clippers and this led to their first back-to-back losses in March.
Chris Paul and Mo Williams simply went crazy on the court to end the road trip against the San Antonio Spurs to score 69 of the Clippers’ 120 points. They were able to beat the Spurs 120-108 and Paul’s 11 assists helped the team pull this good win out in the West.
When they were finally able to head back home, they then hosted the struggling Golden State Warriors. Despite Griffin’s 27 points and 12 assists, the Warriors were able to pull off a 97-93 win.
The Boston Celtics then flew down to LA. This game was all about runs and who was getting hot at the right time. Griffin had 24 points while Mo Williams contributed 21 points but still lost in a crazy 94-85 loss. Things were looking a little grim after this defeat.
Chris Paul and company then hosted the Hawks in a game that they desperately needed to get back on track. Mo Williams led the team with 25 points and led the team to a solid win.
They then lost to the Phoenix Suns and beat the Houston Rockets. The team will simply need to turn things around for March because they have been quite inconsistent on both sides of the floor. The Clippers have enough fire power to get home court advantage in the Playoffs but they will need to start playing better more consistently.
