The Los Angeles Clippers have won six in a row as they continue to get a boost from one of the best benches in the NBA. That's bad news for the Bulls, who were dominated in their first meeting in November by 21. Los Angeles has outscored opponents by an average of 16.8 points in its second six-game win streak of the season. The Clippers, who last took seven straight during a team-record eight-game run in 1991-92, cruised past Toronto 102-83 on Sunday. The Clippers, who rested starters Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and Willie Green for the entire fourth quarter and Caron Butler for all but 1:36, continue to rely heavily on their reserves. Los Angeles is getting 41.8 points off the bench to rank near the top of the league and is 11-0 when its reserves score at least 41. The Bulls not only have point guard Derrick Rose out with a knee injury, but also starting shooting guard Richard Hamilton out with a foot injury. Expect Chris Paul to take advantage and dominate the much slower Bulls backcourt.
