The Atlanta Hawks have a tough match on their hands. The Clippers have been playing really well, and have won 8 out of their last 10 matches to rise to the second spot in the West. The Clippers currently boast a 13-4 record and are one game behind the Lakers for the top spot.
But they will be shorthanded tonight. Both their key stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard are ruled out of tonight’s matchup due to Covid protocols. All-Defensive Team member Patrick Beverley is also out for the game.
