The Los Angeles Clippers look to build on their four-game winning streak. On the season, the Clippers are averaging 106.8 points on 47.4 percent shooting and are allowing 100.3 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Blake Griffin is averaging 22 points and 7.5 rebounds while Chris Paul is averaging 19.1 points and 10.2 assists. J.J. Redick is dishing 1.8 assists and DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 14.9 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from deep in their last five games. The Clippers have won five of their last seven games on their home court. The Clippers are still fighting for home court in the first round.
The Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific. The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southwest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall.
The Clippers are catching the Grizz on the end of a back-to-back, and Conley is banged up. I like the Clippers to remain hot and win this game by double digits.
