The Boston Celtics (25-10) are back on track after their worst six-game stretch of the season, winning three games in a row, as they host the Los Angeles Clippers (21-15) on Thursday. This is a match up of the two best wing duos in the league with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on one side and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on the other side. When Los Angeles brought together the pair of Leonard and George the goal was a championship, but in three seasons they have won just three total playoff series, while the young Boston pair have already come two wins from a championship in their short time together.
