The Clippers come into this opening night off a disappointing 2020 season after blowing a 3-1 lead in the second round of the playoffs against the Nuggets.

Head coach Tyronn Lue said over the weekend that they plan on making major adjustments including implementing more sets of the triangle offense.

In the offseason the Clippers made some improvements by signing forward Serge Ibaka to a two-year, $19 million deal. The Clippers had the fourth ranked offense last season putting up an average of 116 points per game on defense give up an average of 110 points per game.

The LA Clippers are 10-5 against the spread in their last 15 games against the LA Lakers and the total has gone under in 4 of the Clippers’ last 5 games on the road.

The Lakers are fresh off winning the championship and favorites to win back to back championships at the +270 price.

They also made a big announcement today that forward Kyle Kuzma has agreed to an extension over three years worth around $40 million.

In the offseason the Lakers upgraded both offensively and defensively, bringing in Dennis Schroder, Montrezl Harrell, Alfonzo McKinnie and Marc Gasol and Wes Matthews, so it will be interesting to see how this first game plays out. The Lakers offense scored an average of 113.3 points per game and were ranked third in the league on defense only giving up an average of 107.3 points per game last seasons.

The Lakers are 0-7 against the spread in their last 7 games when playing at home against the Clippers, but 7-1 straight up in their last 8 games at home.
