The Clippers (35-17 SU, 28-24 ATS, 28-24 O/U) need the All-Star Break in the worst way. They are coming off a 111-89 blowout loss at Miami on Friday, getting 3.5. That was a Miami team without Chris Bosh and Ray Allen. That was with Chris Paul, Chauncy Billups and Blake Griffin all back. Paul (knee) couldn't do much and you wonder why they just didn't let him rest until the All-Star Break. The Clippers have lost four of six on this long road trip that doesn't end until Monday's game at Philadelphia. The Knicks (32-16 SU, 25-21-1 ATS, 22-24-2 O/U) are coming off a 100-94 road win at Minnesota last Friday, giving 6. Carmelo Anthony had 36 points and nine rebounds in the win.
