Best bets on the Tube

 

Los Angeles Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro was asked why his team is so good at getting steals. The Clippers lead the NBA in steals, averaging 10.56 per game. “I want them to be aggressive,” Del Negro said. “I think they are learning to trust each other a little bit. They are getting a feel for each other as far as when to go for them.” The Clippers had 12 steals in a 103-77 win over Phoenix on Sunday night. The Clippers put their penchant for thievery on display again Tuesday against Denver ( 7:30 p.m., ESPN) in the finale of a NBA Christmas television quintupleheader. Los Angeles has won a franchise record 13 consecutive games. – L.A. Times
