Los Angeles Clippers – Milwaukee Bucks – NBA action is back in LA. Clippers have to push harder for the play-offs.
- Clippers had a big win on Sunday and if they go on to make the NBA playoffs, it might just be considered their biggest win of the year. They beat the best team in the Eastern Conference in the Toronto Raptors in Toronto by double digits, 117-106. The Clippers are currently 7th in the league in scoring offense with 109.4 points per game. LA is 13th in the league in rebounding with 44 boards per game and stand 20th in assists with 22.4 per contest. The Clippers are mediocre defensively, ranking 22nd in scoring defense by allowing 108 points per game. This defensively stats has been improved after Blake Griffin leaves the team and Bradley and Harris join Clippers. DeAndre Jordan puts up 12.2 points and 15.3 rebounds per night. Lou Williams (23.1 points, 5.4 assists) and Danilo Gallinari (15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds) are solid offensive weapons for Doc Rivers.
- Bucks head to Los Angeles to take on the Clippers on Tuesday night. The Bucks are safely in the Eastern Conference playoffs. They are currently 39-34 and in 7th place and they will finished somewhere between 6th and 8th meaning they will be facing the Raptors, Celtics, or Cavs in the first round. Giannis is the man when it comes to the Milwaukee Bucks and their fans sure hope it’s for a long time to come. He’s putting up 27.3 points per game while pulling down 10 boards per game. Thon Maker (right groin strain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game vs. the Clippers.
- All the luck in the world is looking to be in LA this days. 8th Timberwolves and 9th Nuggets lost last night and Clippers have a big chance in their run for play-off. If Nuggets played in Philly and is not a such problem that lose, Wolves lost at home against Memphis, 14th in their conference with only 20 wins this season. My prediction Los Angeles Clippers – Milwaukee Bucks.
Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers ML, 1.65 odds.
