Away: Los Angeles Clippers (29-25/15-14 Away)

Projected Starting Five:

  • PG: Terance Mann
  • SG: Luke Kennard
  • SF: Kawhi Leonard
  • PF: Paul George
  • C: Ivica Zubac

After getting tripped up by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 122-99 road loss last Monday that also snapped their five-game win streak, the Clippers rebounded right away. The following game, Los Angeles came from behind to beat the Chicago Bulls in Windy City Wednesday, 108-103. 

Just like in that game, the Clippers showed that while they’re not the typically high-scoring team, they are always going to be fine so long as their defense is clicking. On the season, the Clippers are just 28th with 110.6 points per game but are third with 110.5 points allowed per contest. The Clippers are also limiting opponents to only a 53.5 eFG% and 46.7 FG% – both top-10 defensive numbers in the league.

The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.


Home: Milwaukee Bucks (34-17/21-5 Home)

Projected Starting Five:

  • PG: Jrue Holiday
  • SG: Grayson Allen
  • SF: Khris Middleton
  • PF: Giannis Antetokounmpo (probable)
  • C: Brook Lopez 

The Bucks are rolling, They have extended their undefeated run to five games after smothering the LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets at home last Wednesday to the tune of a 124-115 score. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks against the Hornets in points (34), rebounds (18), and assists (4), while Jrue Holiday had a double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds. 

The Clippers have excellent two-way perimeter players in Kawhi and Paul George, but Antekounmpo is going to be a handful for either. Plus the Clippers might be a little thin in the frontcourt with Marcus Morris Sr. questionable with a rib issue. Giannis is probable, but it’s nothing more than just a cautionary label. 

The Bucks, who are averaging 114.3 points per game and drain 14.3 threes (5th)  per contest, have seen the total hit the Over in 13 of their last 17 outings as the home team.


Spread: The Bucks (-4.5) cover.

Over/Under: The total (231.5) hits the Over.
