Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Los Angeles Clippers could win this game in blowout fashion, but they also haven’t played in 5 days, so who knows what type of energy they come out with. This is also a very early start time for a west coast team. Just weird stuff all around for the Clippers. The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a nice upset win over the Lakers and did beat the Clippers back in November, for whatever that’s worth. I lean Nets and the points because of the long layoff with the Clips, but I wouldn’t touch this game regardless.
