The Los Angeles Clippers go to Scotiabank arena in Toronto, Ontario Canada to take on the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Los Angeles Clippers are on a two-game winning streak, last losing to the Milwaukee Bucks. Their last one was against the Indiana Pacers, in which, Kawhi Leonard did not play due to load management.
There's been a lot of talk of the Los Angeles Clippers this year and how they're going to handle their player. Paul George didn't play the start of the year, due to an injury. Kawhi Leonard is missing a decent amount of games do the load management. Criticism aside, it looks like Los Angeles is looking for a playoff run and with the record of 18-7, they likely will be making the playoffs.
Toronto Raptors are coming off of a one-point win over the Chicago Bulls in a game that saw Pascal Siakam score 22 points. The win over the Bulls snapped a three-game losing streak that the Raptors were on.
The Raptors have been exceeding expectations, which can be a weird sense to say for a team that won the NBA championship last year. However, with no Kawhi Leonard and no Danny Queen, there were many people have speculated of Toronto deep make the playoffs this season. After a 16 - 7 start of the season, Toronto has ended all of the questions as Pascal Siakam and Fred Van Vleet have taken a next step up in their game.
Clippers are 14-11 ATS this season
Over is 10-15 for LA this season
Toronto is 13-10 ATS this season
Over is 12-10-1 for Toronto this season
Both teams have a very similar record, and they're both very good teams in the NBA right now. However, Toronto does have a terrific home record of 9-2. On the flip side, Kawhi Leonard will likely be playing in this game. I think I just have to go with talent here and Los Angeles have more depth and more talent on their roster. Final score predictions, Los Angeles Clippers win, 110 - 107.
