The Western Conference rivals square off in a crucial game for playoff positioning.
In what could be a playoff preview, they host the LA Clippers on Wednesday night in a game both teams need, as the Clippers, currently the No. 4 seed, are in the middle of a huge scrum of teams fighting for positioning.
There is no love lost between the two teams, who split their first two regular season meetings. The matchup between Blake Griffin and Kendrick Perkins on the interior will be worth watching, especially after Griffin's brutal summit of Perkins that led Sportscenter for weeks.
The 7:00 PM game will be broadcast regionally on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
