Head to head, the Clippers are 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Atlanta.
The Hawks have been far from their best over the last week as they've fallen to the Suns and the Kings, but they should be good enough to beat the shorthanded Clippers tonight, but only just.
