LA Clippers Form

LA come into this game in red-hot form, having won their ninth straight game last night to improve to 17-10.

The Clippers endured a miserable first few weeks of the season, but have kick-started their campaign in recent weeks and are enjoying their best run of form so far.

They bounced back from a 120-114 defeat at Golden State with a 113-112 home win over the Warriors, and that sparked an eight-game win streak.

LA beat Denver 111-102 at home, and then backed up a 117-103 win in Utah with home wins against Portland, 132-127, Sacramento, 119-99, Golden State, 121-113, and New York, 144-122.

The Clippers’ hot run then continued with a 151-127 win at Indiana on Monday night and a 120-111 victory in Dallas last night.

Oklahoma City Thunder Form

Oklahoma City enter this matchup in solid form, having won six of the last eight to take their record to 17-8.

The Thunder started this run with a 133-110 home win against the Los Angeles Lakers, which was followed by a 126-120 victory at Dallas.

They failed to make it three-in-a-row as they lost 110-101 at Houston, but they bounced back immediately with a 138-136 overtime victory at home to Golden State.

Oklahoma City then beat Utah 134-120, only to again fail to string together three wins as they were beaten 128-123 in Sacramento.

The Thunder responded quickly though, following up a 118-117 in Denver with a 116-97 victory over Memphis.

Verdict

LA are in sensational form, so while playing on back-to-back nights on the road is tough, we like the Clippers with the points in this one.
