The Clippers and Lakers have split two meetings this season.
Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Los Angeles Clippers didn't need much help from their bench to keep a winning streak intact and look to make it six in a row Thursday against the local Lakers.
The Clippers handed the Phoenix Suns a 104-96 loss on Tuesday, as all five starters scored in double digits. Matt Barnes led the bunch with 28 points, Blake Griffin followed with 22 and Darren Collison ended with 18 points.
"Matt Barnes kept us in the game the way he was shooting the ball and we got stops and that's when we really got back in the game. It was intense." said Griffin.

If you don't bother to scour the Eastern Conference standings past the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat, you're missing something special.
The Chicago Bulls have climbed all the way to the fourth seed, just a half-game behind the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors. They stand at 33-27 and are 21-9 since the ball dropped in Times Square.
We all know that Derrick Rose's return from a torn ACL that cost him all of last season lasted just 10 games of this season.
Luol Deng was traded for Andrew Bynum, who spent less time in Chicago than a pigeon, and some picks.
