NBA 2013 schedule: Clippers hit the road for matchup with the Grizzlies

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

The Los Angeles Clippers began a three-game road trip with a matchup against Rudy Gay and the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Los Angeles Clippers began a heavy stretch of road games with a matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

The Clippers are coming off of a disappointing 104-101 loss to the Orlando Magic at home on Saturday snapping Los Angeles' 13-game home winning streak in the process. L.A. heads out on the road now and will be trying to snap a two-game losing streak away from Staples Center.

The Clippers are 28-9 and 10-5 on the road. That road record will get tested in the coming weeks as Los Angeles enters a stretch of 15 of 19 games on the road. Memphis is two back of San Antonio in the Southwestern division but suffered a lackluster 104-83 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.

The game will feature a matchup of two of the best power forwards in the game in Los Angeles' Blake Griffin and Memphis' Zach Randolph. Griffin is averaging a team best 17.4 points and 8.6 rebounds while Randolph is averaging a double-double at 16.7 points and 11.7 boards.

The two teams will meet two more times after Monday's contest. The Clippers won the previous matchup opening their season with a 101-92 win back on October 31. Jamal Crawford scored 29 points off the bench in that game to lead Los Angeles. Rudy Gay tossed in 25 to lead the Grizzlies.
