Nash likely to play tonight against Clips

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash says he's likely to play this evening against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Nash missed Tuesday's game against Memphis and left Monday's contest with Oklahoma because of back spasms.

After practicing yesterday, Nash told reporters he felt good.

The Clippers came up short against the 76ers Wednesday, failing to make enough plays down the stretch in a 100-92 home loss. Al Thornton scored 24 points and rookie Eric Gordon continued his strong play with 21.
