Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Without Brogdon in the lineup and facing such a deep talented LA roster the favor leans to the Clippers However, the Pacers boast two big men who could make life difficult for Harrell and Zubac.
But the main issue will be the Pacers having the depth on the roster to stop each of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Lou Williams and with such a small spread it’s hard to ignore them.
