The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Staples Center.

The Brooklyn Nets could use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 111.6 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 111.7 points on 45.7 percent shooting. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 20.2 points and 6.8 assists while Caris LeVert is averaging 14.1 points and 4.1 rebounds. Joe Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Jarrett Allen is grabbing 8.4 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have split their last six road games.

The Los Angeles Clippers look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114.6 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Lou Williams is averaging 20.4 points and 5.3 assists while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.4 points and six rebounds. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit scorer and Landry Shamet is grabbing two rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. 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 won six of their last seven home games.

The Nets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Nets are 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings and the home team is 24-10 ATS in the last 34 meetings. The over is 7-2-1 in Clippers last 10 home games. The under is 6-0 in Nets last 6 overall.

The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back and haven't played their best on the road where the offense dips in production and they lose by an average of three points. The Los Angeles Clippers have quietly been one of the hotter teams in the league, and they enter this contest winning their last five games by an average of 5.7 points and shooting 47.9 percent from the field. The Clippers are also 17-8 ATS this season when favored by less than seven points and have covered five of their last seven at home. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Clippers against an inconsistent Nets team on the end of a back to back.

Pick:
L.A. Clippers -6
