The Los Angeles Clippers haven’t had much preseason success over the years, but they’ve been ridiculous defensively through 2 games. Yes, one of those contests came against Maccabi Ra’anana, but the point still stands. The Minnesota Timberwolves have played well also, so I can understand the other side. I’m just not betting against the Clippers at home based on what I’ve seen through 2 games.
