The Atlanta Hawks and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction.

Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks have been in a rut as they’ve lost five of their last eight games overall and they will be eager to snap a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Jazz in a 124-122 road loss on Friday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 33 points and nine assists, De’Andre Hunter added 27 points on 10 of 17 shooting off the bench while Jalen Johnson chipped in with 26 points and five assists. As a team, the Hawks shot 44 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 39 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Jazz in a close contest, working their way back from an 11-point deficit, only to come up painfully short as they went scoreless in the final 1:17 to allow the Jazz off the hook in the end. The Hawks will play against the Lakers and Suns after this game.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have cooled off a bit recently as they’ve lost three of their past four games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after getting beaten by the Pelicans in a 112-104 road loss on Friday. Paul George led the team with 26 points and six assists on 10 of 21 shooting, Kawhi Leonard added 23 points with seven rebounds and two blocks while Norman Powell chipped in with 15 points off the bench but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Clippers shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 33 from the 3-point line which was good enough to keep pace with the Pelicans until they went cold when it mattered most, scoring just four points in the final 4:45 to allow the Pelicans to slip away.

Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Hawks are still shorthanded with Trae Young, Saddiq Bey and Onyeka Okongwu all still out, while the Clippers are still missing Russell Westbrook with Norman Powell and James Harden both listed as questionable at the moment. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff with the injury cloud hanging over Powell and Harden, but the Hawks are also missing a bunch of players and they just lost to the ice-cold Jazz in their last outing. The line is hefty, but I still think the Clippers get the job done at home behind big games from Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.
