Clippers vs. Warriors Prediction & Pick
The Clippers enter this game with a clear rest advantage as they haven't suited up for a game since Friday night. Golden State was on the court yesterday and saw four of its five starters play at least 30 minutes. Head coach Steve Kerr hasn't indicated that Klay Thompson or Jordan Poole will sit, though.
The Clippers rank 10th in defensive efficiency this season and are allowing only 106.3 points per home game (No. 2 in NBA). Golden State has struggled a bit on the road, committing 17.3 turnovers (No. 30 in NBA) and 22.8 personal fouls per game (No. 30 in NBA). LA's defense will make an impact.
LA is at full health with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the lineup, so back the Clippers tonight.
Final Score Prediction: Clippers: 117 | Warriors: 107
Clippers vs. Warriors Best Bet
As explained above, the Clippers thrive on the defensive end during home games and the Warriors struggle on the offensive end in away games. Turnovers and fouls by Golden State will only help LA pull away in this game before the fourth quarter arrives. Kerr may end up resting his starters late.
It makes targeting the under on the Warriors' team total the best bet to make. They live and die by the three-point shot and the Clippers allow an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 33.6% in home games (No. 6 in NBA). This is just a horrible matchup for Thompson and the rest of the offense.
Bet: Golden State Warriors Under 109.5 Points (-110)
