The top team in the NBA will take the court in Los Angeles on Tuesday with a fresh videotape on how to slow down one of the highest-scoring teams in the west.
The Toronto Raptors will gladly take it as their matchup against the Clippers will come following back-to-back defeats, as well as at the start of a four-game West Coast swing. The only other time the Raptors lost consecutive games this season was a three-game slide in mid-November.
The Clippers will be coming off a grueling 123-119 overtime victory at Phoenix against the lowly Suns on Monday, but taking the floor did allow them the chance to distance themselves a bit from a demoralizing defeat to the Miami Heat on Saturday. It is that game against the Heat that might interest the Raptors most.
