Last time:  Oklahoma City opened the Derek Fisher era with a 114-91 blow out win.

So, where do we go from here. Oklahoma City is coming off a 2 game winning streak, and a nice win over the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Clippers just fell to the streaking Memphis Grizzlies on Monday as well.

Here’s the thing. Two of the hottest teams in the second half of the season are about to play. The Clippers are just a 1/2 game ahead of the Grizzlies for the fourth spot. Oklahoma City is one game up on San Antonio for the first spot in the conference. So, it’s not like there isn’t anything to play for, so this could be a great game

The first meeting was a blow out win by the Clippers, then a blow out win by the Thunder. What will see tonight? It’s going to be very intriguing.

Chris Paul vs. Russell Westbrook
Paul dominated the first game, Westbrook shut him down in Oklahoma City.  In a battle of the two of the top point guards in the league, I think this is the most important factor in tonight’s game. Which point guard is going to play the best?

Three Point Shooting
Oklahoma City dominated the three last time out. and the Clippers the first time out. Don’t be surprised if the winner is decided by the long ball.

Rebounding
 You must stop Blake Griffin from rebounding the offensive glass. Perkins and Ibaka need to dominate. Enough said.
