Notes

* The Clippers are the league's hottest team and have the second-best home mark this season (28-5). They've lost just two home games since Jan.1 -- and those have been to the Spurs and Heat. The task in front of the Cavs tonight is obviously quite enormous. 

* The Cavs are trying for an unexpected sweep of this three-game trip. The last time the Cavs swept a West Coast trip (minimum three games) is also the last time they swept a road trip (minimum three games) of any kind: March 10-13, 2009, according to Elias. They won at the Clippers, Suns and Kings during that trip five years ago en route to a 66-win season.

* The Clippers will be wearing their powder blue alternate home sleeved jerseys tonight.
