The Clippers were my pick to win the NBA title this season, and they're playing great basketball out of the gate with some of the best defense in the league. The Thunder continue to rely heavily on Westbrook and you can only question how long that's going to last. The Clippers will be motivated to return the favor after OKC beat them in Los Angeles. I like the Clippers and the small line here.
