The Los Angeles Clippers look to stay hot and win their fourth straight game. On the season, the Clippers are averaging 107 points on 47.3 percent shooting and are allowing 101 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Chris Paul is averaging 17.8 points and 9.8 assists while Jamal Crawford is averaging 16.2 points and 2.6 assists. J.J. Redick is shooting 46.8 percent from the field and DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 13.9 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 48.3 percent from the field in their last five games and have won 15 of their last 20 games when topping 100 points. The Clippers are also 22-7 SU on their home court and haven’t lost in front of their home fans since January 16th.
The Kings are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Clippers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Clippers haven't been good ATS on one days rest and are playing a motivated Kings team that feels like it hit the reset button with their new head coach. I'll take the points here.
