Clippers hope smooth sailing continues against Rockets

The surging Los Angeles Clippers begin a three-game road swing Friday in Houston against the sputtering Houston Rockets.

Los Angeles (42-19) comes in a winner of three straight and 10 of 11, extending its run Wednesday with a 117-105 defeat of Memphis. The Clippers' victory over a Grizzlies team currently in position to qualify for the Western Conference play-in tournament came with leading scorers Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both sidelined, as well as veteran role players Serge Ibaka, Reggie Jackson, Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverley.

"We don't want to make excuses," said Clippers coach Tyronn Lue in his postgame press conference on Wednesday. "A lot of teams are down players, and they're finding ways to keep playing and keep competing. That is what we want to do."
