Kawhi Leonard and the 5th place Los Angeles Clippers roll into Portland to take on Damian Lillard and the sinking Trail Blazers in a Western conference battle in the NBA tonight.
The Trail Blazers are blazing trails right now, but in the wrong direction. Losers of 5 straight and 8 of their last 10, Portland’s remaining schedule is beginning to look like a lot of must-win games to simply stay in the playoff race.
The Clippers will look to climb one game closer to the 4th place Suns, as every game gives them another opportunity to avoid a play in game in the upcoming playoffs.
Both teams have it all to play for tonight in Moda Center and we’ve got it all covered for you, right here.
Here is everything you need to watch, bet on, and enjoy this Western Conference NBA clash tonight!

Los Angeles Clippers Last 5 Games
Portland Trail Blazers Last 5 Games
The Blazers come into this Sunday night NBA showdown in desperate need of a win.
Damian Lillard and the Blazers have dropped their last 5 and are slowly watching their playoff chances slip through their finger tips with every passing defeat.
The Blazers are 13th and 3 games out of the coveted 10th spot to make it into the play-in game but they need to start collecting some wins, and they need to do it now.
For the Clippers, they are comfortably in 5th and out of the play-in scenario, but only 2.5 games separate them and the 10th place Jazz.
Complacency at this point would be the kiss of death for this battle-tested Clippers squad and I don’t see them taking their foot off the gas pedal.
Kawhi Leonard has been awesome this month, averaging 28 points and 8 rebounds over his last 5 games. He missed the Clippers last game, a loss to the Magic so he will be coming out tonight looking to pick up right where he left off.
More on the Claw in a bit.
As for the game, I am going to ride with the desperate Blazers at home to hang around with the Clippers and fight for their playoff lives.
I am not sure if they get the job done in the end but I love them to cover the points and keep it close.

The Claw is back. Kawhi Leonard has looked sensational over the past month, coming back into his own as one of the premier players in the NBA.
He has averaged 28 points per game in his last 5 and has 28+ points in 3 of his last 4 and 5 of his last 8 games.
In his last 2 meetings with the Blazers, Kawhi has 28+ in both games and I expect him to take over again tonight in Portland.
