NBA Picks and Predictions on this Los Angeles Lakers (37-28) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (44-22) Thursday, May 6th basketball game. This game is set to tipoff at 10:10pm et at the Staples Center.
The NBA odds have the Clippers currently listed as -8 point favorites with the over/under at 211 total points.
The Lakers come into this game with two nights of rest behind them after getting a 93-89 home win against the Denver Nuggets on Monday Night. That’s put them now just 3-7 in their last 10 games and in real danger of dropping to that seventh seed where they’d have to be take part in the new play-in tournament concept. The Lakers would possibly have to face the Grizzlies or Warriors, which aren’t easy matchups, which is why Lebron has been complaining to the media all week about it.
LeBron James who played in two games this past week has been ruled out as per reports for this matchup and against Portland on Friday.
Anthony Davis over the last 4 games has averaged 21 points and 8 rebounds, so he seems to getting his rhythm back and he should be able put up another 25 point performance like he did on Monday. Both the Lakers are Clippers over these last few games have been towards the bottom of the league in offensive production, but luckily their great defenses has been saving them.
The Clippers are currently just -3.5 games back from that top spot in the Western Conference, but with just six games left this regular season, they’ll most likely end up in the third seed. That third seed will still have to face a pretty tough first round opponent, so the Clippers need to be all gas and no breaks if they want the opportunity to raise that Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy this season.
Los Angeles got the 105-100 win on Tuesday Night against the Toronto Raptors where the Clippers went 52% from the field and 44% on 3-pointers, but they turned the ball over 18 times, which kept Toronto in the game down to the wire. Kawhi Leonard is just two games back from injury and averaging 14.5 points per game, which is 11 points below his average this season, so expect him to step it up and put up at least 22 points in this one.
In this Lakers vs Clippers game, we’re rolling with the Clippers -7 and laying that -130 price.
