Los Angeles Clippers: Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

Why you want to watch:

The Bulls, who had the NBA’s record last season, visits Staples Center to
play the Clippers who are quite possibly this season’s most interesting
team with the acquisition of Chris Paul. The Clippers hype train took had
some difficulties Wednesday night as they were thoroughly worked by the San Antonio Spurs who won by a surprising 25 points. To prevent derailment, the
Clippers will need a better showing against what many consider one of the
elite teams in the Bulls. The Bulls are 2 and 1 in their current road trip,
scoring victories over the Lakers on opening night and Sacramento
yesterday. Their lone loss was an upset victory by the Golden State
Warriors. This game will showcase arguably the two best point guards in the game, Chris Paul and Derrick Rose.
