Thunder Vs. Clippers: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Oklahoma City faces off against what could become one of their biggest rivals in the Western Conference over the next few years.

In what could be a playoff preview between two of the most exciting young teams in the NBA, the Oklahoma City Thunder host the LA Clippers on Wednesday.

It's the second game of the season between the two, with the first, a 112-100 Clippers victory in LA, overshadowed by Blake Griffin's vicious summit of Kendrick Perkins.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 67 points against the smaller and less athletic Clippers back-court, but they lost to a balanced offensive attack which featured all five LA starters in double figures.

The Clippers have become a much deeper team since their first meeting, adding Kenyon Martin, who had been playing in China, as a reserve big man and Nick Young as an athletic 6'6+ wing to fill in for Chauncey Billups, who is out for the season with an ACL injury.

Both teams played on Tuesday, with LA losing 102-89 in Indiana while Oklahoma City lost 97-90 in Utah.
