Raja Bell is OUT with a sore left knee.
Q's Quote: Despite Kobe's struggles, the Lakers were able to hold off the Hornets and increase their division lead to 1.5 games. Clippers have a chance to knock that right back down to 1 game and play the Lakers the game after next, which could decide the division winner. The Jazz are a game out of that 8th seed, and make no mistake, they are looking to make it in. With a 19-7 home record, they could be a scary opponent in the post-season.
Next five for the Clips: @ Dallas, vs Lakers, @ Sacramento, vs Sacramento, @ Memphis
