The Clippers and Grizzlies first round series last year went to seven games, and this series looks like it could be headed on the same path. Los Angeles took care of business in the first two games and home and then Memphis took care of business in the next two games on their home floor. This series returns to Los Angeles with the score tied up at two games each. Let’s take a look at this pivotal Game 5 matchup.
The Los Angeles Clippers took the opening game of their first round series against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night to take the 1-0 series lead. They can sweep the mini-series if they can get the job done on Monday night at Staples Center.
Teams that are very likely to meet in the first round of the playoffs face off in a critical NBA betting showdown on Saturday night at the FedEx Forum, as the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Dallas Mavericks are only two games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth spot in the Western Conference standings. They have won 7 of their last 10 games, but time is running out on them in their quest to get into the playoffs. The Los Angeles Clippers are fourth in the standings, but they are in a three-way battle for third with Denver and Memphis.
The New York Knicks jumped out to a big lead in the Atlantic Division standings early this year, but their lead has been slowly evaporating little by little. Brooklyn and Boston are right there, and there is no more margins for error for the Knicks. The Clippers sit in the fourth spot in the Western Conference, but they are only 4.5 games back of the first place Spurs.
The Clippers head into this matchup fresh off Wednesday night’s 117-101 romp over Milwaukee as 10-point home favorites. They have now won five of their last six games to improve to 43-19 straight-up overall and 35-27 against the spread. Los Angeles now heads back on the road where it is solid 20-12 SU on the year and 17-15 ATS.
It’s a battle between two first place teams tonight in Los Angeles as the San Antonio Spurs travel to “Lob City” to take on the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center. The Spurs swept the Clippers out of the playoffs last year but the Clippers have certainly had the Spurs numbers so far this season. The Clips have taken both meetings earlier this year.
