Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers need to rack up as much wins as possible to break out of their tie with the Nuggets. Positioning is important heading into the postseason although the Clips have a formidable lineup. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will spark the Clippers anew on offense. But defense needs some addressing, particularly after their last game against the Sixers. They cannot afford the same lackadaisical defense against a dangerous OKC five.
Players to watch: K. Leonard SF 46 GP 46 GS 32.3 MIN 27 PTS 1 OR 6.5 DR 7.5 REB 5.2 AST 1.8 STL 0.6 BLK 2.9 TO 2 PF 1.8 AST/TO 26.7 PER

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
The Thunder are hoping to bounce back after a loss as they continue their surprising season. For a team that was supposed to be in rebuilding mode, OKC has surprised many with its current performance. Chris Paul leads the charge anew together with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dennis Schroeder. Head coach Billy Donovan will have his work cut out, trying to contain Leonard and George. The backcourt edge goes to the Thunder but the frontline will be in for a long night defensively.
