Los Angeles has been struggling right now with six losses in their last eight matches. The team has dropped one spot down to the fifth spot in the Western Conference standings as a result, one game behind fourth-place team Utah Jazz and one game ahead of sixth-running squad Memphis Grizzlies as well.
The Clippers were beaten by the Boston Celtics, 107-102, in what was said to be Paul Pierce's last game at the TD Garden on Sunday night, as per Fox Sports.
Head coach Doc Rivers put Pierce in the starting lineup, but the former Celtic great only ended up playing five minutes while sinking the game's final basket, which was a three-pointer from the left wing.
The Clippers are still playing without team leader Chris Paul, who is still recuperating from a surgery that repaired his injured thumb, and was led by Blake Griffin with 23 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. DeAndre Jordan hauled down 16 boards but only had six points with three assists.
Off the bench, three Los Angeles players scored in double figures, namely Jamal Crawford, Raymond Felton, and Marreese Speights with 23, 16, and 11 points respectively.
Meanwhile, the Raptors are also reeling at the moment with eight losses in their last 11 outings. The team has dropped two spots with the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards overtaking them in the Eastern Conference table.
In their last match also last Sunday, Toronto turned back a gritty challenge from cellar-dwellers Brooklyn Nets, 103-95, on the road at the Barclays Center to snap a two-game losing skid, via ABC News.
Kyle Lowry led the team with a triple-double of 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists while Jonas Valanciunas top-scored with 22 points and five boards. DeMarre Carroll also had 15 points with five rebounds and three steals as Norman Powell became the fourth starter in double figures with 10 points, six boards, and three assists.
DeMar DeRozan (ankle) and Patrick Patterson (knee) are both currently out of head coach Dwane Casey's squad with separate injuries.
The Clippers are 14-12 on the road while the Raptors are 17-9 at home. Los Angeles is predicted to win this match as Toronto is currently undermanned.
