OKC Thunder vs LA Clippers, 12 pm
Clippers -3

With so many injuries on today’s slate, a lot of the game lines are really up in the air. There aren’t expected to be any key injuries in this one and I like the look of the Clippers -3 points.

They appear to have turned a corner of late, comprehensively winning in each of their last 4 games. They’re still fighting for playoff seeding, so I’d expect them to play fairly hard for the next 6 weeks.

While OKC have been a good story on paper, they just don’t match up well with some of the best teams in the NBA. Especially against this Clippers side, I think their lack of two-way wings will really hurt them.

Their backcourt has performed well all season, but I’d expect the Clippers perimeter defence to contain them here. Although he didn’t leave on bad terms, this is somewhat of a revenge game for Paul George, who should be very motivated. Especially at this relatively low line, I think the Clippers are good value for a road win and cover.
