Lou Williams is averaging 20.3 points and 5.3 assists while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.5 points and six rebounds.

The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have split their last six road games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers look for another win after splitting their last six games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.3 points on 48.9 percent shooting. Kevin Love is averaging 17.6 points and 11.1 rebounds while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 16.9 points and 2.4 assists.

The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 21-6 ATS in their last 27 Friday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Cavaliers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Clippers are 4-12 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Cleveland and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 home games. The over is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall.
The Los Angeles Clippers head into this game playing some of their best ball of the season as they hope to close the deal on a playoff spot, but they've been shaky on the road where they've split their last six and are losing by an average of 1.4 points. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won four straight at home and are 13-9 ATS this season when an underdog of less than eight points. The Clippers don't have the consistent offensive firepower to blow teams out. I'll take a stab with the Cavs and the points.
