Clippers’ magic number to clinch playoff berth is four

The Clippers begin a five-game road trip Wednesday at New Orleans. By the time they get back to Los Angeles, they most likely will have clinched a playoff berth.

Any combination of four Clippers wins and Phoenix losses will do just that. The Clippers (50-21) begin the trip in third place in the Western Conference standings behind front-running San Antonio (54-16) and Oklahoma City (52-19).
