The Los Angeles Clippers are starting to get on the right track after some early season struggles, and it’s been the team’s improved play at the defensive end that can be thanked for that.
The team looks to keep the good times going on Monday when it visits the Detroit Pistons.
The Pistons have improved greatly from what they put out a season ago, and they only keep improving. To further continue their development, putting an end to a nine-game losing streak against the Clippers would go a long way.
Los Angeles Clippers:
The Clippers play their final game of a five-game road trip on Monday. The team nearly let a big lead slip away from them in their last contest.
Los Angeles led the Brooklyn Nets by as many as 18 points before that lead was cut down to two in the fourth quarter.
From there, the Clippers hit a couple big shots down the stretch to hang on for a 105-100 win. That win improved the team’s record to 3-1 on their current road trip. Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick each had 21 points, while Chris Paul chipped in 15 points and 14 dimes.
The Pistons enter this contest having won six of their last eight games. Reggie Jackson put up 21 points in a 118-96 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, while Ersan Ilyasova chipped in 20 of his own.
The Pistons last picked up a victory against the Clippers on Nov. 12, 2010, losing all nine meetings between the teams since then.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Clippers allowed 103.7 points per game in starting the season 7-8. In going 7-2 over their last nine contests, the team is surrendering 96.0 points per game, and it’s that improved play at the defensive end that is going to get them over the top in this one.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers -1.5
The team is limiting opponents to 41.7 percent shooting from the field on this run, limiting their opponents to fewer than 100 points in five of those games.
