The Clippers are coming off a win, but they have lost 2 of their last 4 games. They have continued to win with Blake Griffin out and have a tall task taking on LeBron and a Cavs’ team that has won 5 of their last 6 games including their last 2.
The Cavs had a little hiccup with 3 losses in 4 games, but they have been playing well as of late. While their D has not looked great in their last 2 games they have scored 120 points in each of those games.
In their last games the Cavs beat the L.A. Lakers 120-108 and the Clippers beat the New York Knicks 101-94.
The Cavs have a balanced team that ranks 9th in the league in scoring and 4th in opponents’ points per game. Even in winning 3 of their last 4 games they have given up an average of 107 ppg in that span.
LeBron James has been playing great as of late not only scoring and dishing it out, but he has at least 11 rebounds in 3 of his last 5 games. The Clip Joint have to keep the new Big 3 of James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love from having big games.
Earlier this season in Cleveland the Cavs beat the Clippers 115-102.
This season the Cavs are 19-12 on the road.
The Clippers sit in the 4th spot in the West and with the Thunder in a rough patch as of late L.A. only trails them by 1.5 games.
The Clippers rank 6th in the league in scoring and 8th in opponents’ points per game.
Chris Paul and J.J. Reddick combined for 44 points in the win over the Knicks and for the Cavs to beat L.A. they will have to play solid D on the perimeter and not give these guys looks from deep.
DeAndre Jordan has been a monster on the boards as of late and he has grabbed at least 18 rebounds in 3 of his last 5 games including 19 in the last game over the Knicks. Cleveland must put bodies on him and not allow him to dominate the glass, especially on the offensive end of the court.
This season the Clippers are 22-11 at home.
