OKC Morning Loud Links: Showdown in the Other LA

The Thunder travel to Los Angeles tonight to take on the new and improved Chris Paul-led Clippers. The Clippers just came off of an impressive win against the Denver Nuggets last night, and so while they may be a bit weary from that ordeal, they still know that they can compete with any team in any style of play. The game will be a great test to see how the Thunder stack up against a sudden playoff contender.
