The Line: Los Angeles Clippers -10.5 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks invade the Staples Center to battle the Los Angeles Clippers tonight.
The Bucks have lost three of their last four and were embarrassed last night in a 113-95 loss to the lowly Lakers. Michael Carter-Williams led the scoring with 19 points, Khris Middleton added 16 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15, but the Bucks just got manhandled by the Lakers who simply looked like the hungrier team. Greg Monroe was a late scratch for the Bucks after he bumped knees with a teammate at shootaround so he isn't a certainty for tonight's game.

Meanwhile, the Clippers have won eight of their last 10 overall and will be going for a third straight after sneaking past the Pistons in a 105-103 overtime win on Monday. Blake Griffin had a massive game of 34 points on 15 of 30 shooting, JJ Redick added 24 points while Jamal Crawford had 14 points and the game-winning three. With the win, Los Angeles improves to 15-10 on the season and 6-5 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Clippers are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-3-3 ATS in their last seven games overall.
The Bucks will be eager to make up for last night's embarrassing lost to one of the worst teams in the league, but I think the Clippers will have too much firepower in this one. Take Los Angeles to pull away late and win this one by double digits at home.
