First thing to remember, the road Clippers come into this one off a 108-103 road win over the Chicago Bulls. Also, they entered that one as 2.5-point favorites and covered for the fifth time in six outings.
The hometown Bucks arrive following yet another easy victory having routed the Hornets 124-115 on Tuesday.
The Clippers are 27-27 overall against the spread on the season. Also, they are 15-14 ATS as the away team and 7-15 ATS as the underdog.
Additionally, the Bucks are 27-21-3 against the spread on the season. Also, they are 17-9 ATS as the home team and 30-9 ATS as the favorite.
This is the first time these clubs are facing each other in the 2022-23 regular season. The second meeting will occur just eight days from now in LA.
Last season, the teams played twice with each team winning on the opposing team’s court. The Bucks hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 69 of their 123 matches.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Wednesday, February 1st. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Thursday, February 2nd.
Perhaps Ty Lue never fully relaxes in fear one of his stars will get injured but he has to be feeling very positive as the teams near the All-Star break.
Both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are back healthy and looking as threatening as what everyone projected they would be when the stars teamed up to land in LA.
The trick will be making sure they stay healthy but get enough reps in so the supporting cast around them can build chemistry and rhythm.
On the negative side, presently, LA ranks 28th for scoring averaging 110.6 points per game while shooting 46.8% from the field and 37.7% from the perimeter ranking 20th and seventh respectively.
Opponents average 110.5 points per game ranking third lowest overall while allowing opponents to shoot 46.7% from the field and 35.7% from the perimeter ranking eighth and 10th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Marcus Morris Sr., SF (Questionable—ribs)
- John Wall, PG (OUT—abdomen)
Heading into the match versus the Hornets I was effusing about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s uniqueness and he sure lived up to the hype.
He frankly looked like someone who had been given the secret code to unlock all the easy routes on a puzzle as he repeatedly sped past Hornets players like they were standing still.
Giannis followed up his 30-minute triple-double with an equally impressive double-double of 34 points and 18 rebounds. Jrue Holiday joined the double-double party with 15 points and 13 rebounds plus three assists, and two steals.
Opponents score the sixth-fewest points with the Bucks allowing 111.9 per game limiting opponents to 45.5% from the field and 35.0% from deep ranking third and eighth respectively.
Offensively, the Bucks score 114.3 points per game ranking 17th, while shooting 46.1% from the field and 36.0% from the perimeter ranking 23rd and 16th in the latter two categories.
To summarize the injury report…
- MarJon Beauchamp, G (Probable—right patellar tendon)
- GIannis Antetokounmpo, PF (Probable—knee)
- Bobby Portis, F (OUT— knee MCL sprain)
- Serge Ibaka, F (OUT— shopping for trade partners- away from team)
- AJ Green (OUT – G League – Two-Way)

Free LA Clippers vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
This could easily be a preview of the NBA Finals. There is a symmetry between the two clubs seasons as they’ve both battled injuries to their core players and the seasonal stats are not indicative of their true capabilities because of it.
One main difference that separates them is Giannis and Jrue Holiday have stayed relatively healthy or been fortunate not to miss games at the same time unlike Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.
These are two high IQ teams with MVP talent and depth and will be using this match as a litmus test in the event they see each other in the summer.
