New Jersey Nets At Los Angeles Clippers: Have-Nots Clash In Cali

The New Jersey Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers, who have combined for 5 wins this season, will meet at the Staples Center Monday night as the Nets kick off a four-game West coast swing.

While the Nets are coming off a 91-90 loss to Orlando, it was one of their best efforts of the season as the Magic needed a last second shot from Jameer Nelson to pull out the victory.  Devin Harris poured in 26 points for the Nets.

New Jersey has lost 23 straight road games to Western Conference opponents.  Their last win was last Janary against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Clippers are currently 1-9, in the middle of a five-game losing streak and trying to avoid their worst start in over a decade.  Los Angeles lost on Friday night in overtime to the Detroit Pistons who were led by Charlie Villanueva's 30 points.  Eric Gordon led the Clips with a season-high 28 points

Terrence Williams continues to be sidelined by an abdominal strain and will miss the game for the Nets while Chris Kaman (ankle) and Baron Davis (knee) will both be watching from the sidelines for the Clippers.
