Sunday afternoon could be a preview of the Western Conference Finals at the Staples Center, where the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the Los Angeles Clippers in NBA betting action.
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.
The final game of the first half of the NBA betting campaign takes place at Staples Center on Thursday, where the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers will send the league into its All-Star Break.
The Clippers have been treading water during their current eight-game road trip with a 2-3 record in the first five games. This is actually an impressive performance considering that Chris Paul continues to recover from a bruised knee cap and Blake Griffin has missed the last two games due to a strained hamstring. Both players remain questionable for Friday night’s game.
Some have been expecting the Clippers to hit a tough patch this year, but they just keep winning. Chris Paul’s bruised kneecap is a little bit of a concern, but he should be back in the lineup soon. He is listed as doubtful for this game. The Phoenix Suns are now under Interim Coach Lindsay Hunter’s guidance. Can the Clippers keep pace near the top of the Western Conference standings or will the Suns pull off a surprise?
The Dallas Mavericks are one of the biggest disappointments of the NBA season thus far. Dallas sits at just 13-22 on the year. They have lost nine of their last ten games. On the other side, the Los Angeles Clippers have the best record in the league. It seems like the Clippers are ready to take that next step and be a true contender in the playoffs this year.
Kobe Bryant’s comments after the Lakers loss to the 76ers this past weekend got a ton of publicity. Bryant was clearly fed up with the Lakers struggles, and he came right out and said this team is too old and isn’t putting forth enough effort. The Lakers are the fourth oldest team in the league, but it’s hard to believe that a team with this much talent can’t do any better than 15-16 through the first 31 games of the year.
Dallas comes into this Western Conference matchup at 8-9 straight-up and 7-10 against the spread after rolling over Detroit 92-77 as a seven-point home favorite this past Saturday. It was just the second SU victory in their last six games as the Mavericks already find themselves five games in back of Memphis in the Southwest Division. The total has stayed UNDER in three of its last four games.
For the second straight night, the Minnesota Timberwolves are going to be involved in NBA betting action, as they take to the road to battle it out with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Think that Minnesota is glad to have F Kevin Love back in the lineup? All that Love has done since he’s been back in the fold is average 24.0 points, 16.5 boards, 1.8 steals, and 1.8 assists per game.
The Clippers have become the toast of the town in LA with eight straight-up victories in their first 10 games. They have also become one of the favorites of the betting public with a profitable 8-2 start against the spread. Los Angeles’ 92-87 win over San Antonio this past Monday night as a 4.5-point road underdog extended its current winning streak to six games and raised its road record this season to 3-0 both SU and ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in five of its last six games.
