The Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers collide at the Arena on Tuesday night. Here’s a Lakers vs Clippers Prediction.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in decent shape as they’ve won five of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to keep it going after blowing past the struggling Trail Blazers in a 134-110 home win on Sunday. D’Angelo Russell led the way with 34 points and eight assists on 14 of 21 shooting, LeBron James added 28 points with five assists while Austin Reaves chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Lakers shot 54 percent from the field and 13 of 33 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 36 points in the first quarter to jump out in front early and they just ran away with it, outpacing the Trail Blazers from start to finish to earn the much-needed home win.

Los Angeles Lakers Team Facts

  • The Lakers have lost each of their last 10 road games following a win.
  • The Lakers have failed to cover the spread in each of their last four games as underdogs against Pacific Division opponents following a win.
  • Twelve of the Lakers’ last 13 road games have gone OVER the total points line.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after routing the Nets in a 125-114 home win on Sunday. James Harden led the team with 24 points and 10 assists, Russell Westbrook tallied 23 points with nine rebounds and six assists off the bench while Kawhi Leonard chipped in with 21 points. As a team, the Clippers shot 50 percent from the field and 13 of 26 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Nets to fall behind by 18 points, before they flipped a switch and dominated the fourth quarter by 41-15 to pull off their best comeback win of the season.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The Clippers have won each of their last 12 games following a home win.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in each of their last eight home games against the Lakers following a home win.
  • Each of the Clippers’ last four games as favorites following a home win have gone OVER the total points line.

Lakers vs Clippers Prediction

The Lakers are going to be shorthanded here with LeBron James already ruled out due to an ankle injury, while the Clippers are still missing the underrated Ivica Zubac. The Lakers are slowly turning things around and they looked good in their big win over the Trail Blazers on Sunday, but they’re going to need another big game from Russell if they want to keep up in this contest. The Lakers have beaten the Clippers in two close games this season, but the Clippers are almost fully healthy and I think they get their revenge here.
