Team Stats


Series History

The Thunder is 3-0 against the Clippers so far this season (2-0 at home, 1-0 on the road).

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+4.5)

It’s been just two days, so not a lot has changed in this matchup except for the fact that Paul George is out of this one with a sprained knee. That’s a big blow for the Clippers on both sides of the ball. Still, it’s tough to beat a good team over and over again, particularly twice in a couple of days. A good coach like Ty Lue is extremely capable of making adjustments, and that could very well be enough to win this game. Still, I think OKC can pull out another win tonight, so I’m taking them to cover the spread.

Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (232.5)

The Clippers lost their leading scorer in Paul George, and unless both teams decide to give up on defense, I don’t see this one scoring 30+ more combined points than two nights ago. I’m not falling for the over again, so I’m taking the under on the point total.
