The Clippers shot a healthy 52 percent from the field and did a great job of sharing the ball which led to 24 assists on 39 made field goals in a clinical offensive performance.

Head to head, the Blazers are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the underdog is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings.
The early money is going toward the Clippers to win and cover at home and I have to agree with that after what I saw from them last night. It should be a close one for most of the game, but I expect LA to pull away late and get the cover.
