The Los Angeles Clippers are back to being as healthy as they've been in a while, and they're outscoring teams by an average of 6.2 points during their last five games. The Atlanta Hawks are losing by an average of 9.1 points on the road this season, and that has to do with a defense that's allowing 47.7 percent shooting from the field and 37.6 percent from three. The Clippers have found their mojo again with the return of Lou Williams and others. I'll side with the Clippers in a comfortable home victory.
