The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers had one of the NBA’s most bitter rivalires the past three seasons, but with the departure of Chris Paul from L.A., this contest has a much different dynamic to it.
The Warriors are the hottest team in the NBA, while the Clippers, despite a recent resurgence following the return of Blake Griffin, are once again short handed and are wondering if they should fight for a playoff spot or blow it up at the trade deadline.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter this contest averaging 115.6 points per game. That is good enough for first in the league, and if you think that’s purely a product of their pace, which ranks fourth, you’re ignoring the fact that this team is also No. 1 in offensive efficiency, as it scores 113.1 points per 100 possessions.
Defensively, the Dubs are allowing opponents to post 106 points per night. That number is good enough for 16th in the NBA, but unlike offense, this bloated number actually does have quite a bit to do with their pace.
Because they run such a fast pace, they create more possessions. Because they create more possessions, they allow more points.
But in terms of defensive efficiency, the Dubs rank third in the Association. They give up just 102.2 points per 100 possessions, which puts them only behind the league-leading Boston Celtics and No. 2 San Antonio Spurs.
Entering this contest, Golden State has won three straight and five of its last six.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers enter this contest scoring 106 points per game. That number is good enough for 13 in the NBA.
In terms of offensive efficiency, L.A. is posting 106.6 points per 100 possessions. That number bumps them up to 10th in that category.
Defensively, the Clips are allowing opponents to post 106.3 points per night. That number is good enough for a tie in the 17th position in the league.
When it comes to defensive efficiency, Los Angeles is allowing opponents to average 106.5 points every 100 possessions. That number is good enough for 16th in the league, and sandwiches them between the 15th-place L.A. Lakers and 17th-place Memphis Grizzlies.
