Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers, Playoffs Game 1. The Warriors start at home the playoffs, as it is always a big advantage for the champions. The objective of this season for the Warriors is the search for a third consecutive title. But the season for the Clippers has not been so bad after being dismantled. The Clippers had a good record in the regular and aspire to much more in the playoffs.
Golden State Warriors: The impossible is near.
The Warriors closed the regular season with 57 victories and 25 defeats being number one in the Western Conference. But the Nuggets are in the same conference and this year they proved very dangerous in second place. The Warriors won twice against the Clippers on the regular. The first victory was on the road 112-94 and the second is the most recent at home 131-104.
At home the Warriors have 30 wins and only 11 losses in the regular. The average points per game is 118.1, 44.24 FG points, 79.9% free throw shots, 13.20 three pointers, 30.68 assists. The number ten defense in the NBA allows up to 111.5 points per game, 40.54 FG points, 78.6% free throw shots, 11.41 three pointers.
The ATS record at home is negative with 16-24-1. In the last ten games the record is 5-5-0, but for most of the season the offense is not that lethal. The last home win was against the Cavaliers 120-114, but the team could not complete the -16 points in the spread.
Los Angeles Clippers: New team with new soul.
The Clippers have not stopped this season. The team did everything possible to close the regular with 48-34, also were eighth in the conference. The conference is one of the toughest in the NBA, but that did not stop the Clippers to be the fifth best team in points per game. The only problem of the Clippers is still the defense, the number 25 in the entire league.
On the road the Clippers are scoring up to 112.4 points per game, 39.80 FG points, 78.8% free throw shots, 9.63 three pointers, 22.20 assists. The defense is bad allowing up to 114.0 points per game, 42.00 FG points, 77.2% free throw shots, 10.20 three pointers and 23.49 assists.
The ATS record is positive on the road with 22-17-2. In the last ten games on the road the record is 6-3-1. The last game of the regular on the road was against the Warriors. The team lost 104-131 and could not keep +11.5 points in the spread.
