Guard Eric Bledsoe and sore calf will sit again today as the Clippers take on the Knicks at Staples Center. Caron Butler (strained left elbow) will start.
One of the showdowns will come from the benches. The Clippers’ Jamal Crawford leads the NBA in sixth-man scoring at 16.9 points per game and New York’s J.R. Smith is second at 16.7.
The Clippers haven’t beaten the Knicks at Staples Center since 2009.
