Fresh off a win each, the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder are ready to face off in the Staples Center and see whose win streak stays alive. This Blake Griffin-Kevin Durant matchup is bound to be great, and HollywoodLife.com wants you to catch every minute!
Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are making their way to Los Angeles to take on Blake Griffin and the Clippers, and it will certainly make for one epic battle. Both teams are looking to earn their spot in the playoffs, so it won’t be an easy win for anyone! Who will come out on top at the Staples Center? There’s only way to find out — tuning into the live stream!
Los Angeles will host Oklahoma City on March 2, and it will likely be a fight to the finish. The teams are neck and neck in the Eastern Conference, as the Thunder hold the third spot with a 42-18 record and the Clippers are right behind with a record of 39-20 — so this really could be anybody’s game! You won’t want to miss it once it kicks off at 10:30 P.M. EST!
In fact, the last time these teams played each other, the Thunder were just barely able to pull out a victory over the Clippers with a 1-point 100-99 win! That game was also played on the Clippers’ home court, so there’s definitely going to be some vengeance in the way that Blake and his team plays tonight!
Plus, the Clippers just defeated the Brooklyn Nets at home two days before facing the Thunder. Beyonce and Jay Z happened to be front row for that game, and they were clearly good luck! Even if the superstar couple isn’t there to cheer them on, the Clippers will definitely have some fire under their feet.
But the Thunder surely don’t want to lose their third place position, so they’ll be just as motivated to get the win. They also have an important, yet sad, reason to play their hearts out tonight — to mourn the loss of their co-owner Aubrey McClendon. Just hours before the game, Aubrey passed away in a car accident that was allegedly a suicide. Between protecting their third place spot and a dedication to Aubrey, the Thunder won’t be an easy team for the Clippers to beat tonight — so don’t miss it!
