The L.A. Clippers are still fighting to stay in the playoff picture. The Clippers currently sit in the seventh seed of the Western Conference. The team is 4-1 over their last five games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are sitting in the fourth spot in the Western Conference. The Thunder are 7-3 over their last 10 games.
The last time the Clippers and Thunder took the floor against each other was January 4th. The Thunder got the win, 127-117. OKC has won both head to head meetings against the Clippers this season.
The L.A. Clippers are looking to make a move in the West, and continue their push for the playoffs. The team is playing well, having gone 7-3 over their last 10 games. The Clippers recently beat the Bulls, 112-106. Los Angeles shot 48.7 percent from the floor and 27.6 percent from three point land in the loss.
Aside from the Clippers last win, Lou Williams has really played like a star player this season. Williams is averaging 23.1 points and 5.4 assists per game this year. If Williams can stay healthy, I don’t see anyone leaping the Clippers, and knocking them out of the playoffs. Their future is in their own hands.
With Williams being the number one scoring option for the Clippers this season, DeAndre Jordan has played well off of Lou. Jordan is averaging 12.2 points and 15.1 rebounds per game this season. His elevated play, and shot blocking ability have been huge for the Clippers this season.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Clippers are allowing 108 points per game this year. Ranking the Clippers 22nd in points allowed per game this season. If the Clippers continue to play poorly on the defensive end, Los Angeles will be an easy out in the playoffs.
Look for a big game from Jordan and Williams. Tobias Harris is going to be the wildcard in this one. He is averaging 19.8 points per game this year.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking like a legit contender coming down the stretch of the season. Oklahoma City is 4-1 over the last five games, and recently beat the Atlanta Hawks, 119-107. The Thunder shot 47.2 percent from the floor and 45.7 percent from three in the win.
Russell Westbrook dropped 32 points in the win against Atlanta. Carmelo Anthony added 21 and Paul George had an off game with 12 points in the win. The OKC big three has played well this season. Russell Westbrook is leading the team in points this season with 25.3 points per game this season.
Defensively, the Thunder are allowing 103.7 points per game this year. That ranks the Thunder seventh in points allowed per game this season. Look for the Thunder to give the Clippers problems in this matchup. If West brook and George get going, this one could get out of hand.
