We’ve got plenty of basketball on tap for Wednesday, February 3rd. The Los Angeles Clippers will look to shake off a close loss to the Brooklyn Nets and the Big 3 on Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving was too much for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Nobody would mind watching seven straight games of Nets-Clippers when the summer rolls around. For so many games, there aren’t a ton of high-profile injuries to account for other than Joel Embiid, who is still dealing with back tightness. He practiced on Tuesday and will have a chance to return to the lineup against the Hornets.

Let’s take a look at the NBA lineups for Wednesday night’s slate.
