Indiana was able to get the better of Los Angeles a week ago 109-104, now in a crucial game for Los Angeles, they must get their revenge while keeping their playoff hopes alive. Los Angeles opened up as three point favorites, while the line has dropped in favor of Indiana to 2.5 points.
By far one of the biggest surprises of the NBA this year, this Indiana squad has positioned themselves to earn a five seed or better for playoffs. They have gone 7-3 in their last 10 contests while going 6-4 ATS.
Their most recent outing resulted in a close 106-103 victory over Sacramento on the road thanks in part to Victor Oladipo’s 13 fourth quarter points that included a pair of free throws with seconds remaining.
Oladipo and Myles Turner have been leading this Indiana team. Oladipo is averaging 23.2 PPG and 4.1 APG, while Turner is averaging 13.3 PPG and 6.7 RPG.
In their last five contests Indiana has shot 46% from the field, which is a tad off from their season average of 47%. Defensively they’ve been even better only allowing 98.2 PPG.
On the road Indiana’s offense has been okay ranking 17th in PPG, 6th in FG% and 16th in 3PT%. What you like to see is they make their free throws on the road ranking 2nd overall in FT%.
The defense has been even better on the road ranking 7th in PPG, 16th in FG%, 7th in 3PT% and 11th in RPG.
Los Angeles Clippers
After going 4-6 in their last 10 matchups, Los Angeles now finds themselves on the outside looking in currently sitting in 9th place in the West. They couldn’t get the job done in their last contest losing 96-105 to Portland.
They have been stroking the ball lately shooting 48.4% from the field in their last five contests, while the defense is only giving up a solid 103.4 PPG in that span.
Los Angeles has been led by Lou Williams and DeAndre Jordan this season. Williams is averaging 22.7 PPG and 5.4 APG, while Jordan is averaging 12.3 PPG and a stellar 15.4 RPG.
At home the offense has been efficient ranking 9th in PPG and 9th in FG%, but three-point shooting could be better ranking 22nd overall.
The defense is a little complicated ranking 25th in PPG yet they rank 9th in FG% and 7th in 3PT%, so they need to try and limit the free throws.
