The Clippers are dealing with some depth issues as of this moment at Disney World, with some players missing on the team. Defensive menace and veteran Patrick Beverley has recently left the team due to a personal emergency, while energy guy Montrezl Harrell has also returned to the “real world” for his own personal reasons. Moreover, Ivica Zubac was not with the Clippers when the team arrived in Orlando for the season restart. And we’re not done yet. Sixth man extraordinaire Lou Williams recently exited the Orlando bubble soon because of, again, personal reasons.Despite all that, the most important thing for the Clippers is that their two best players are with them right now, and they are Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. So long as those two are around, the Clippers are always going to make it hard for any opponent. In the Clippers’ 111-106 win over the Lakers last December, Leonard had 35 points and 12 boards, while George chipped in 17 points.
The Clippers are 3-1 against the spread in their last four games.
Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers (+4.5)
Regular Season Record: 49-14
Dion Waiters and JR Smith are finally teammates, but the main duo in the Lake Show remains that of Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Everybody knows what Davis and James can do on the floor, especially when they’re together, but Waiters and Smith will not only provide color for the team but also scoring off the bench. James is still playing like he’s in his 20s, as he is putting up 25.7 points, 10.6 assists, and 7.9 rebounds per game. Davis, meanwhile, paces the Lakers with 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks. With the Clippers likely to parade a slim frontline that’s possibly going to be led for the meantime by way-past-his-prime Joakim Noah, Davis could be in for a great night in the Lakers’ first game back. In the Lakers’ past three games against the Clippers, Davis managed to average 26.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 1.7 blocks.
The Lakers, who are third in the league with 106.9 points allowed per contest are 3-1 against the spread in their last four games as the home team.
The Lakers win, 107-98.
