The Clippers sit at 5-5 on the road this season and faced their first game without Chauncey Billips in the lineup last time out in their 99-92 road loss at Cleveland on Wednesday night. Billups is out for the season with a knee injury. The Clippers had rest for Cleveland and the Cavs were facing the back end of a back to back facing travel. The Clippers were very sloppy in the loss and were lax defensively as they allowed 50.7% shooting and 7 of 18 from three to Cleveland. The game marked the debut of Kenyon Martin for LA who had 6 points and four rebounds in 20 minutes of work. Mo Williams saw extended work with the absence of Billups and shot a poor 2 of 10 from the floor with 5 points in 34 minutes of play. Williams struggled on the defensive end of the court with the added minutes.

Philadelphia enters play too with one day of full rest. They dropped a 100-90 decision to an improving San Antonio team on Wednesday night as a -3 ½ point favorite. They had a rough night shooting the basketball as they hit on just 40.9% in defeat. Philadelphia has been a stout defensive club on their home court. The team is 13-4 straight up at home and limits their opponents in those 17 games to an average of just 83 points and 41.3% shooting from the floor. The 76ers have good guard play that could give Chris Paul some issues tonight. Philadelphia has eight players on the roster that averages 9 or more points per game this season. Five of those eight players play in the guard position.
