The Los Angeles Clippers could use a win after losing four of their last six games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 105.1 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 104.2 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Blake Griffin is averaging 26.6 points and nine rebounds while Jamal Crawford is averaging 13.6 points and 2.3 assists. DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 12.9 rebounds and Paul Pierce is dishing 1.7 assists. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting just 31 percent from deep but have topped 100 points in nine of their 10 games. The Clippers are turning the ball over less than 13 times per game and are allowing just 30.2 points to opponents bench. The Clippers have won 12 of their last 15 regular season games. Chris Paul and J.J. Redick are questionable.
The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
The Warriors are getting closer and closer to their first loss, as the Nets and Raptors both took them down to the wire. You can also throw the Clippers in there. The Clippers match up well with the Warriors and would love nothing more than to give their hated rival their first L. With this being played in Staples, I like the points and even an outright victory.
