All times Eastern.

Team to watch: LA Clippers

Tuesday, Jan. 22 at Dallas, 8:30 p.m. | Wednesday, Jan. 23 at Miami, 7:30 p.m. | Friday, Jan. 25 at Chicago, 8 p.m. | Sunday, Jan. 27 vs. Kings (on NBA TV Canada)

Despite a recent rough stretch that saw the team lose five straight, the Clippers remain in the thick of the Western Conference playoff picture as they begin the week with a 25-21 record that is good for the No. 7 seed.

Thanks to Tobias Harris' near triple-double (27 points, nine rebounds, nine assists), LA closed last week with a 103-95 win in San Antonio to snap the aforementioned losing streak. Harris has been outstanding this season as he leads the Clippers with 21.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game while shooting 50.2 percent from the field, 44.3 percent from deep and 87.6 percent from the free throw line. The eight-year veteran has made a very strong case to earn the first All-Star nod of his career through the first 46 games of the season.

In addition to Harris, the team has benefitted from contributions across the board - Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.0 points per game while two-time Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams is averaging 18.7 points per game in a reserve role. In addition to Williams, Montrezl Harrell has proven to be a Sixth Man of the Year candidate in his fourth season as he is averaging 15.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while shooting 61.9 percent from the field in under 26 minutes per game.

Rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Hamilton, ON) has lived up to the expectations of a lottery pick; the 20-year-old is averaging 9.8 points, 2.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game while starting at point guard for a playoff contender. He will continue to grow and trend upwards as the year goes on and his confidence increases with more experience.

The Clippers' balanced scoring attack has resulted in their boasting a top-five scoring offence (114.5 points per game) behind only the Sixers, Pelicans, Bucks and Warriors.

Given its potent offence, one would assume LA relied heavily on its perimeter shooting, but the team is in the bottom-five in 3-pointers made and attempted.

So how do they do it?

The Clippers attack early and often and the numbers indicate that they essentially get to the free throw line at will. LA leads the league in both free throw attempts per game (28.5) and made free throws per game (22.7). The team makes you pay by connecting on 79.5 percent of its attempts, a rate that is good for sixth in the league.

LA takes the floor four times this week, with the first three games of the week taking place on the road.

Tuesday, the Clippers visit Luka Doncic and the Mavericks on the first night of a back-to-back and travel to Miami to take on the Heat on the next night. Friday, LA makes its lone visit to the United Center to take on Chicago before returning home to host Sacramento in a game that could have playoff implications down the road.

While the tilt with the Kings is slated to air on NBA TV Canada, replays can be found on NBA League Pass.
