Al Horford and Marcus Smart out tonight vs Clippers

The Celtics (34-14) enter tonight's game in Los Angeles against the Clippers (23-13) losers of four straight. After a 108-107 loss to the Lakers at the Staples Center last night the green will enter the same arena this evening without two of their most important players:

Smart had an impressive stat line against the Lakers posting 22 points and dishing out eight assists while Horford posted a double-double (13 points 12 rebounds).
