The L.A. Clippers earned one of their biggest wins of the season last game after they beat the Utah Jazz 88-72, while out in the Eastern Conference the Atlanta Hawks were just as lucky coming away on the winning end of a tough 109-104 point win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
As the Atlanta Hawks trailed 97-95 with just a few seconds left on the game clock, All-Star Paul Milsap hit a clutch basket to tie the game and take it into overtime for Atlanta.
And from there the team just started piling it on the Portland Trail Blazers. They outscored them 12-7 in the overtime, and that ultimately allowed them to pull away ahead.
However, it wasn’t just their scoring that allowed them to get the upper hand. Defense also played a huge part as Atlanta held Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum in check all night.
Lillard shot just 6-21, while McCollum went just 9-24 from the field. The play of those two was the main reason why Atlanta was able to come back and win the game.
But now next outing they got to do the exact same thing. Going up against the Clippers, Atlanta needs to contain Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford. If they can do that, they’ll earn the victory, but if not, they’re going to take another “L”.
The Los Angeles Clippers were able to earn their 34th win of the season last game, and defense played a huge part in the final outcome. The Clippers held Utah to below 80 points in the game, and that’s almost impossible with the firepower they have on their roster.
All of the Jazz star players were held in check all night. Gordon Hayward shot just 2-12, while George Hill went 2-11, and Trey Liles was held to 0-9 shooting from the field.
The play of those three really helped Los Angeles come away with the victory, because Utah couldn’t get their offense going all game. However, next matchup they need to do this again if they’re to earn another “W”.
Atlanta is a dangerous team, especially since they do a phenomenal job crashing the glass. So if the Clippers hope to get the win, they’re going to need to contain them in the rebounding department.
If they can do that, they’ll make it four wins in a row, but if not, this is going to be another long night for them.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. L.A. Clippers NBA Prediction:
Despite the fact that L.A. is playing without Chris Paul, I’d still pick them to win this game. Atlanta relies on Dennis Schroeder to attack the paint, but since the Clippers do such a great job preventing layups, look for Atlanta to fall short in this outing.
