Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Boston Celtics Prediction:
Thursday, February 13th, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics play for the second time this season. In the first meeting on November 20th, the Clippers won 107-104 in overtime.
Last season, the teams played twice with the Clippers winning both games and currently hold a four-game win streak over Boston. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 88 of their 131 matches.
Los Angeles Clippers
Despite having both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George active on Tuesday the Clippers became another victim of the 76ers on their home court.
Only the Heat and Mavericks have won in Philly and those defeats occurred in back-to-back games on December 18th and 20th. Suffice to say there’s no shame in being among the 22 teams who’ve lost a cumulative 25 games at the Wells Fargo Center.
They’ll face another tough road venue at the TD Garden in Boston where road teams have only won on five occasions.
In Philly, Leonard led the way scoring 30 points with nine assists and four rebounds while George delivered a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Landry Shamet (19), Marcus Morris (13), Lou Williams (13), and Montrezl Harrell (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Kawhi Leonard leads the Clippers in scoring (27.1), rebounds (7.4), and steals (1.8). Lou Williams tops assists (5.9) while Montrezl Harrell leads blocks (1.1) and field goal percentage (57.6%).
Patrick Beverley (groin) missed the last three games and is questionable for Thursday.
Prior to the loss in Houston, the Celtics had won seven games in a row. Despite the win streak, the Celtics remained in third in the East by virtue of the Bucks only losing seven times all season and the Raptors being on a current 15 game win streak.
The loss to Houston pushed them 2.5 games back of the second seed. More concerning is if the Raptors beat the Nets Wednesday and the Celtics fall to the Clippers they’ll drop 3.5 games back which is significant ground to make up with only 28 games to work with post All-Star break.
Small ball got the full test in Houston as the Rockets and Celtics both employ lineups without traditionally tall centers.
Six Celtics scored in double-figures with Gordon Hayward leading the way scoring 20 points. The other five included Jaylen Brown (19), Jayson Tatum (15), Kemba Walker (14), Daniel Theis (11) and Brad Wannamaker (11).
Team leaders in key categories are Kemba Walker for assists (5.0) Gordon Hayward for field goal percent (51.4%), and Daniel Theis for blocks (1.3) leader. Jayson Tatum leads the other three categories including scoring (22.1), rebounding (6.9) and steals (1.4).
Jaylen Brown is dealing with a calf contusion and although he played versus the Clippers his presence Thursday is questionable. Robert Williams III (bone edema, hip) remains out until early March.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Clippers are 7-3 in last 10 head to head
- The Clippers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10
- Over Under is 6-3-1 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
This match comes down to the Celtics rarely losing at home while the Clippers don’t typically lose consecutive games. In fact, LA has only lost consecutive games once this season and that was back in mid November.
Both clubs are strong defensively and while Boston ranks higher the Clippers have two stellar defenders in Leonard and George who they can throw directly at Tatum and Brown.
