The Los Angeles Clippers are getting desperate for a victory in order to snap a five-game losing streak. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 107.4 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 105.8 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Blake Griffin is averaging 22.6 points and 7.9 rebounds while Lou Williams is averaging 16.4 points and 3.2 assists. Austin Rivers is the third double-digit scorer and Danilo Gallinari is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line.

The 76ers are 18-7 ATS in their last 25 road games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Monday games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. NBA Atlantic and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles, 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
I'm not sure the Los Angeles Clippers should be favorites against anybody in their current form, as they've lost five straight and the defense has been horrible. During their losing streak, the Clippers are being outscored by eight points, allowing 50 percent shooting from the field and 43.1 percent shooting from deep. The Philadelphia 76ers are getting better each game, have had no problem winning on the road and are a great covering team at this point in the season. I'll take my free bucket in a game the 76ers can win outright.
