After completing a nine-game homestand, the LA Clippers will begin a three-game road trip on Tuesday night against a hungry Indiana Pacers team.
Led by All-Star forward Domantas Sabonis, the Pacers enter Tuesday's contest as winners of three-straight over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic and Memphis Grizzlies. Despite ranking as a middling group on both ends of the floor, the Pacers are exceptional at moving the ball around, forcing turnovers and limiting three-point attempts.
With that said, there's no team in the league that's hotter right now than the Clippers. LA has won five in a row and 11 of its last 13, and it's knocked off some of the best teams in the NBA during that stretch, including the Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers.
Paul George's play has elevated the team as of late. The reigning Western Conference Player of the Week is averaging 33.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists and shooting 61% from three-point range over his last three contests.
With Kawhi Leonard, Patrick Beverley and Serge Ibaka sidelined, the Clippers will need George to keep up his stellar play against his former team. If he can get things going early and LA can keep Indiana out of the paint, the Clippers should be able to start their road trip on the right foot.
