Los Angeles Clippers
Stop the presses — Kawhi Leonard played in back-to-back games! That might not seem like a big deal but it was the first time he’d done that in four seasons.
His presence versus the Warriors proved to be an important factor as his last two buckets first tied the game and then pushed the Clippers ahead for the win.

Leonard led the way with 21 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal, and a block in the victory but also coughed up the ball for seven turnovers
Paul George’s early-season hot shooting touch continued as he registered a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds plus two assists and a steal.
Serge Ibaka also netted a double-double of 12 points and 12 rebounds. Nicolas Batum scored 13 and in his first game this season, Marcus Morris Sr chipped in 14 off the bench.
The Clippers have a fully healthy roster for the first time this season.
Golden State Warriors
Heading into the first of two games versus the Clippers, Stephen Curry was on fire. He’d scored 62 and 30 points versus the Blazers and Kings respectively. Steph was also a cumulative 13 of 28 from deep.
The Clippers clearly paid attention and game planned to slow him down. Tyronne Lue’s strategy worked as Curry shot 5 of 17 from the field and 1 of 6 from the perimeter for 13 points.
All the attention opened up his teammates which paid dividends to open them up for clear shots. Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschall each contributed 19 points while James Wiseman added 10 points.
Another five players scored between five and eight points.
LA jumped on the Clippers early limiting them to 15 points but regrouped to score 36 in the second quarter to draw them within a point of the Clippers by the half.
Although Draymond Green isn’t a huge scoring contributor he does a bit of everything else and his return has coincided with the Warriors offense running more smoothly and most importantly their defense getting back on track.
Stephen Curry is nursing an ankle injury but is expected to suit up. Oddly, each of Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre Jr. are listed as having “an undisclosed injury” but each is also probable to play Friday.
Alen Smailagic (knee) is out until February while Marquese Chriss (ankle) and Klay Thompson (Achilles) are lost for the season.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
To decreased travel this season many teams are playing consecutive games in the same opponent market. In many of those sets, the teams are splitting the games because it’s easier to make quick adjustments.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Warriors +4
Given that fact, I”m leaning toward the Warriors’ evening things up and taking the second match.
