Despite winning five of their last seven games, the Clippers are pretty much set with the third seed in the West. On the season, the Clippers average 107.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allow 100.8 points on 44.2 percent shooting. The Clippers may rest their players a bit in this game given the fact it doesn’t mean much. As it is, Darren Collison is averaging more than 37 minutes per game in his last five and is shooting 48 percent from the field during that stretch. The Los Angeles Clippers are 44-34-1 ATS overall and 19-20 ATS at home.
The Kings are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 7-1-1 in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Kings aren't good enough on either side of the ball to keep this game close. The Clippers are an offensive machine that should blow this game wide open like they have in the previous meetings.
Take LA at the chalk.
