The Clippers have ripped off a season-high seven straight wins.
Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Only three games separate the Los Angeles Clippers from the top spot in the Western Conference and they'll try to move closer Monday versus the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center.
The Clippers are fourth in the conference standings and have ripped off a season-high seven straight wins, scoring 100 or more points in each of those. They are first in the NBA in scoring with 107.8 points and opened a three-game homestand with Saturday's 109-108 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
Blake Griffin provided the go-ahead layup in the final minute to help the Clippers survive a scare from the Hawks, who had a chance at the end but Jeff Teague made just 1-of-2 from the foul line. Teague missed the first attempt with 1.2 seconds left and sank the second after trying to miss.
