The Los Angeles Clippers were not able to win their division for the third straight season, but did manage to clinch a playoff spot for the fourth straight year and second under head coach Doc Rivers. Now sitting at the No. 5 seed in the West, but with seven games to go on their regular season schedule the Clippers have a chance to climb a few seeds, trailing the Southwest-leading Memphis Grizzlies by just 2.5 games and the current No. 3 seed Houston Rockets by a game and a half The Clippers are definitely a threat come playoff time due to their tremendous firepower on offense and facilitation of the ball currently, they are currently second in the league in assists.
Just three home games remain for the Clippers at the Staples Center. Clippers tickets are going for an average price of $123.32 for their final three home games on the secondary market.
