The NBA is back in action tonight as the L.A Clippers will clash with the Toronto Raptors in Toronto, Ontario.
The Clippers are heading into this game after a 111-101 win against the Pistons.
On the other side, the Raptors lost a home game against the Bucks with a score of 105-92.
Los Angeles Clippers Form
The Clippers are heading into this game in a good form. Moreover, they have won in the Detroit against a solid Pistons team on Saturday afternoon. However, this will their 3rd game in the last 4 days. Therefore, they might be suffering from increased fatigue in this contest.
L.A is on the final spot in the Western Conference with one game advantage over their local rivals the Lakers.
On the offensive side of the game, the Clippers score an average of 114.3 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the high 6th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 45.6 boards per game combined with 23.2 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Clippers allow an average of 113.7 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 24th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Raptors are having a good season. They are playing well so far and it will be interesting to see them in the playoffs this season. However, they lost the game against the Bucks. Milwaukee is their main rival for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Toronto is just 1.5 games behind the Bucks in the race.
On the offensive side of the game, the Raptors score an average of 113.7 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 7th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 44.9 rebounds per game combined with 24.3 assists per game.
On the defensive side of the game, Toronto is allowing an average of 108.6 points per game.
Their main man this season is Kahwi Leonard as is scoring a team-high average of 27.6 points per game.
Both of these teams are playing well this season. Moreover, they are almost equal and their roster is quite similar. However, I think that the Clippers may be short of winning this game. This is because have been playing quite a lot in the last few games. Also, the Raptors need this win as they lost three of their last four games. Therefore, I go for the Raptors in this one.
