In January, the Clippers returned the favor with a dominating 123-87 win. The Clippers aren't likely to have Jamal Crawford (calf) and certainly won't have J.J. Redick (back)

The Clippers made progress in clawing themselves out of their recent slump with a 96-82 win against Atlanta on Wednesday. It was a lopsided victory in which the Clippers often led by double digits, and never trailed. The Hawks went on a run at the start of the fourth quarter, coming to within five points of the Clippers after Josh Smith made a three-pointer to put the score at 74-69. But the Clippers were not about to lose their third game in a row on their home court -- and it was the team's bench that ensured the victory.
