Clippers getting healthy just in time for showdown with Heat
The Los Angeles Clippers had all of their players in uniform and practicing Thursday for the first time this season, and could potentially have a full roster playing against the Miami Heat Friday night.
Forward Blake Griffin, who has sat out the past two games because of a strained hamstring, went through a light practice as did guard Jamal Crawford, who missed Wednesday night's tilt with a sore right shoulder.
Guards Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups also practiced together for the first time in over two months. Paul has missed nine consecutive games with a bruised right kneecap while Billups has only suited up in three games this season due to tendinitis in his left foot.
All four players are officially listed as game-time decisions Friday.
Heat F Chris Bosh has been battling the flu and is considered day-to-day.
The Clippers are just 3-7 SU (3-7 ATS) in their last 10 games and oddsmakers are suggesting a spread of Heat -6 with a 196 total for Friday night’s game.
