The LA Clippers are moving closer to a playoff berth in the competitive Western Conference, and the organization is adding more than wins to its schedule. The team will host a plethora of promotions in March, as the seventh-seeded Clippers return to Staples Center for a long home slate.
On March 8, prior to their tilt against the Oklahoma City Thunder, all fans in attendance will receive an LED wristband, courtesy of Agua Caliente Casinos. Three nights later, the team will provide fans with a Hawaiin shirt rally tale before playing the Boston Celtics.
Depending on where the Clippers ultimately finish in the standings, the game could serve as a first-round preview come April.
Following the giveaway, Clippers fans will be treated to a playoff-style atmosphere. The key matchup to watch will involve Clippers guard Patrick Beverley and his defense on former MVP Russell Westbrook. Beverley has excelled as one of the league’s best perimeter defenders this season, and limiting Westbrook–especially in the open floor–will be key to notching a win.
In addition, Danilo Gallinari will face off with Paul George, who has been discussed in many MVP conversations.
The Thunder are coming off an overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Heading into the game, the Clippers stand in a tie for seventh with the San Antonio Spurs. However, the Clippers are just one game behind sixth-seeded Utah.
