Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers fell back behind the Lakers for second place in the NBA’s Western Conference after dropping a Sunday afternoon primetime matchup to Milwaukee, 105–100.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the best player on the floor and took over in the fourth quarter to pull the Bucks to victory. He finished with 36 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, and four blocks.
Paul George, meanwhile, struggled for Los Angeles. He went 7-of-21 from the field, including 2-for-10 from three. He had three of his team’s eight turnovers.
The Clippers finish off the final stretch before the All-Star Break first in Boston, followed by a final road game in Washington.
Boston won the first matchup between these two, in Los Angeles, without Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart.
The Clippers, who played without George, started that game well but Boston dominated the third quarter in a four-point victory.
Smart still won’t be ready to play this one, either. It’s possibly Brown misses the game as well after sitting out the Celtics’ victory on Sunday over Washington.
Brown went into the game questionable. He’s been bothered by the same knee that held him out in consecutive games at Phoenix and at LA over three weeks ago.
The Celtics missed Brown and fell eight points behind with just three minutes to go at home against the Wizards before a mad dash, fueled by some good luck, helped them escape with a win.
It was the first time all month Boston won two games in a row and with it, it is back at .500 and in the playoffs, if the season were to end today.
Jayson Tatum scored 31 and made the majority of the big plays at the end of the fourth quarter. His 25.2 points per game lead Boston with Brown immediately behind with 25 per game exactly.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: Boston wins.
The Clippers are the better team but Boston has a little more to play for in this particular spot.
The Celtics are at home and in the middle of some trying times. The two-game winning streak aided by Sunday’s comeback will help but there’s still more to prove.
So expect the Celtics to come out and play harder than the Clippers. They may be hard-pressed to win without Brown but there’s a good enough chance in my mind that he will play to offer this tip now.
