The Los Angeles Clippers continue to make a play for the top seed within the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. Most importantly, Los Angeles was able to atone for a huge loss to Pacific Division foe Portland Trail Blazers in their prior outing by beating up on the Chicago Bulls at home.
And while the Brooklyn Nets continue to reside in fourth place within the Atlantic division of the Eastern Conference, they have won four their last five games, overall. Nonetheless, they are coming off of a huge road loss versus Oklahoma City Thunder as a disastrous second half was the culprit in the defeat.
Los Angeles Clippers
And despite picking up the much-needed victory over the Bulls at home, the Clippers certainly did not have an easy go of it early on in this contest. In fact, Los Angeles were down by six points at the half, yet were able to outscore the visitors by a margin of 71 – 58 in the second half en route to the much-needed victory.
With the win, the Clippers have been victorious in seven of their last 10 games, overall. Their matchup with the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night will be the 5th game of a six-game homestand, to where the Clippers have going 3-1, thus far.
Defensively, the Clippers were atrocious in their matchup vs Chicago as they allowed over 52% shooting both from the floor as well as from three-point range. On the other hand, their offense shot 44% from the floor while connecting on 10 three-pointers on the night as Danilo Gallinari led the team with 27 points while Montrezl Harrell also chipped in 26 points in the win.
Lou Williams also provided even more firepower off the bench for Los Angeles as he chipped in 21 points, as well. In all, despite the Clippers having a lackluster night on the defensive end, they were still able to force 17 turnovers on the night for the Bulls, as this was certainly a detriment to picking up the win.
The Brooklyn Nets were in control versus the Los Angeles Clippers throughout three quarters in their last meeting in November of 2018. However, the Clippers outscored the Nets by a 37-22 margin in the fourth period in which to seal the victory behind 28 points by Danilo Gallinari, as he also went 5-7 from three-point range.
The Nets allowed close to 50% shooting for the Clippers both from the field as well as from long range on the night in this contest. On the other hand, the home team not only shot just 45% from the floor while connecting on 13 three-pointers, but, had 13 turnovers in the loss as well.
Brooklyn turned the ball over 17 times versus the Thunder in their last time out as they shot 41% from the floor while making good on 13 three-pointers. Spencer Dinwiddie led the team with 28 points while D’Angelo Russell along with Joe Harris chipped in 14 and 13 points, respectively, in defeat.
Russell is averaging 20 points per game along with seven assists as he has remained a consistent source of offense for he and his teammates. Dinwiddie (18 ppg) has scored 20 or more points in three of the last four games for Brooklyn as both he and Russell are averaging at least 36% shooting from long-range on the season.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Nets should certainly get some respect for continuing to pick up wins after what has been an inconsistent season thus far. They are currently in the midst of a six-game road trip as their matchup with the Clippers will be game three.
The Clippers will be looking to wrap up an extended home streak by winning their fourth in five games versus the Nets. I happen to believe that they will certainly be solid on the offensive end as the Nets have allowed teams to score at will lately. With that being said, look for Los Angeles to win their second straight as they will pick up the 117-105 win over the Nets on Sunday.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers -5
The Nets have dropped two of their last three road games. On the other hand, the Clippers have really played well during their current home-stand, as pointed out. It is for this reason that I expect them to show and prove in this matchup as they will cruise to victory.
