Who Wins a 7-Game Clippers-Rockets Series?

The Los Angeles Clippers and the Houston Rockets will meet for the third time in the 2013-14 NBA season on Wednesday in what's shaping up to be a battle of rising Western Conference powers.

The Clippers earned arguably their most impressive result of the campaign on Sunday, a 125-117 road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Rockets, meanwhile, would be riding a 10-game winning streak—their longest in six years—into their matchup against the Sacramento Kings Tuesday if not for a loss to the Golden State Warriors.

L.A. owns the head-to-head edge thus far, having blown out Houston in each of the teams' two previous meetings. But the third-place Rockets, at 38-18, can claim a one-game advantage over the fourth-place Clips (38-20) in the standings.  

The next two months could portend plenty of change for these two clubs, though at present, a playoff series of some sort is well within the realm of possibility. In preparation for this week's potential postseason preview at the Staples Center, let's have a look at how these squads compare, position by position.
