It's a battle of running teams as the Miami Heat take their lengthy road trip to the City of Angels, this time to face the Los Angeles Clippers. Between the team that likes to overwhelm the opposition and the fast-paced crew known as Lob City, this one is going to be tons of fun to watch.

Both teams enter the game in first place and hungry to maintain their spot atop the divisional standings. Miami is coming off of a close win against the Houston Rockets, while the Clippers are looking to extend their winning streak to four games.

Needless to say, this one is going to be a barnburner from start to finish. Both teams love to score a lot of points and in a short amount of time.

This game may not mean a lot in the long run,
