The Los Angeles Clippers will be trying to extend a winning streak on Sunday when they take on the Miami Heat at STAPLES Center.

ABOUT THE HEAT (11-27): Miami is expected to get a key player – and one of its toughest competitors – back on Sunday, with center Hassan Whiteside probable after sitting out the previous four games with an eye injury. “It’s a lot better,” Whiteside told the Miami Herald of his eye, which was scratched and bruised by Boston small forward Jae Crowder late in a loss a week ago. “The headaches went away. I’m not seeing double anymore. So, I can see a lot better and a lot of pain went away.” Whiteside, who is averaging 17.3 points, 14.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks, leads the NBA in rebounding while Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan (13.4) ranked third entering Saturday.

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (25-14):
Paul played 31 minutes in his return and collected 14 points, 12 assists and three steals while hitting six free throws in the final 30 seconds to seal the win. “I feel great. That’s a good thing. I don’t feel nothing,” Paul told reporters. “I came out unscathed. I’m excited about Sunday.” Paul’s efforts pushed him past Rod Strickland and into 10th place on the NBA’s all-time assist list and past Isiah Thomas for 16th place on the all-time steals list.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Clippers listed as 10-point favorites versus the Heat, while the game’s total is sitting at 207.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The Miami Heat are losers of seven of their last eight games and are languishing at the bottom of the Southeast Division, but that hasn’t taken away their fight. The Heat will try to keep their players out of any physical confrontations and find a way into the win column when they visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

Miami point guard Goran Dragic was not willing to give up position to Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson on Friday, leading to some physical play and eventually an altercation that left both players ejected. “That’s really shameful, disgraceful that Goran Dragic got thrown out of that game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters. “It’s an elbow to the face, somebody that wants to fight, knocks him down on the ground, and it’s just a bail-out, shameful, disgraceful ejection.” The Los Angeles Clippers are no strangers to ejections and physical play and added another two technical fouls to their total during a 106-98 win at Sacramento on Friday. The win was the third in a row following a six-game slide and marked the return of star point guard Chris Paul from a hamstring injury that kept him out seven of the previous eight games.

Los Angeles was a 106-98 winner in its last match on the road against the Kings. They covered the -2-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 204 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Miami was a 127-100 loser on the road against the Lakers. They failed to cover the +2.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (227) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
