Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Where and when:  Staples Center, Los Angeles, California, Monday, 10:35 pm EST

The Golden State Warriors will travel to Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, to battle the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night at 10:35 pm EST.  The Warriors were 116-100 home winners over the Brooklyn Nets as Quinn Cook and Kevin Durant led the way for the victory as they atoned for a 134-11 home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on November 8th.

The Clippers are coming off a 128-126 home win over those same Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night in overtime as Lou Williams hit a layup with only .3 seconds left to get the hard-fought victory.  The last time these two teams met, the Warriors picked up a high scoring 134-127 see-saw matchup which saw the Warriors shot 61% from the field along with being 14 of 25 from three-point range for the game (56%).

Harrell leads the way in win with hustle

The Clippers’ Montrez Harrell scored 26 points for the Clippers in their win over the Bucks on Saturday night while also collecting nine rebounds in addition to providing a spark on both ends of the floor in the second half.  ‘I come in here every night just looking to give my team the extra boost and that extra push to just will us to win the game,” Harrell explained after the matchup.  Nonetheless, they will need this type of contribution from Harrell in their next matchup as they host the Golden State Warriors on Monday night, who happens to be a team that is lighting it up on the offensive end in averaging 122 points per game.

In all, the Clippers have now won three of five games while also being 3-1 ATS during this time.  Tobias Harris leads the team in scoring 21 points per game while Harrell is shooting 68% from the field in 2018.

Warriors are playing shorthanded

The Warriors continue to win without the need for Steph Curry, who is out due to a groin injury.  Nonetheless, Quinn Cook and Kevin Durant scored 27 and 28 points respectively to lead their team to victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.  Cook made his first seven shots while also having 19 points to end the first half in addition to hitting a huge shot clock-beating jumper in the third to put the Warriors up well over twenty points.  Said Coach Steve Kerr, That’s the mark of a pro,”. ”He’s a great fit for us. Always prepared and always ready. His role is going to swing wildly based on our health and what’s happening out on the floor but he’s always ready.”

The Warriors will certainly have to bring their A-game to face a Clippers team that is allowing just 43% shooting from the field while allowing teams to shoot just 33% from three-point range.  Draymond Green (toe) and Shaun Levingston are also injured while Demarcus Cousins has an Achilles injury at the time for the Warriors.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

 

I will back the Clippers in this contest as I believe that they may be playing the Warriors at a great time.  Look for them to push the issue with their youth and experience in which to control the pace of the game.  With that being said, the Clippers are 4-0 in their last four home games and will certainly bring their best game in which to face the defending champs.  In all, look for the Clippers to pull out a slim victory to begin the week on a strong note.

Prediction: Pick:  Los Angeles Clippers +155

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I will back the over in this contest in that it has been the play in the last three road games for the Warriors while being the result in three of the last four home games for the Clippers.  With that being said, look for scoring to be the plan of the day as both teams will have more than enough offensive opportunities throughout the game due to the fast paced play throughout.  In all, the over will indeed be the strong play in this matchup.

Prediction: Pick:  Over 225.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

As I stated earlier, I happen to feel as if the Warriors are in a vulnerable position at this time.  They are not only without their star in Curry, but, the cornerstone of their defensive effort in Draymond Green is also out and likely to be for a few more games.  With that being the case, even potentially great teams lose games, and I expect the Clippers to hang one on the loss column for the defending champs in this contest as they cover.

Prediction: Pick: Los Angeles Clippers +3.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

Look for the Clippers to hang with the Warriors early on.  Also, look for the home team to really take advantage of their offensive opportunities while matching up with their playmakers in Durant and Cook on the defensive end in which to ensure that they are neutralized (or slowed down).  In all, the Clippers will possess the momentum throughout the first half, thus allowing them to cover the spread at the half.

Prediction: Pick: Los Angeles Clippers +1.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

Look for this to be a high-scoring affair as the Clippers will certainly have to score points throughout in which to keep this game within reach.  With Cook stepping up in place of Curry and doing such a great job thus far, look for him to have a decent outing in this matchup while ensuring that his teammates are involved.  With that being the case, the Clippers are scoring machines early in the 2018 season and will relish the thought of playing an up and down game with Golden State.

Prediction: Pick: Over 115.5

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

Again, every team has down nights in the NBA.  And while the Warriors continue to win games thus far, the Clippers are 5-1 at home this year while being 5-1 ATS.  Also, after a five game home stand, this game will be the first of a back to back for the Warriors before they fly back to the Bay Area to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.  In all, expect the Clippers to have an edge in this matchup early on, thus allowing for them to cash in on the money line at the half.

Prediction: Pick: Los Angeles Clippers +115
