I don’t know how the Clippers are winning games but they are doing so to the tune of one of the best records in the Western Conference. Portland it not far behind the Clippers who most thought would end up in the lottery this season.
Portland continues to do what it does, which is parlaying an elite backcourt into winning more often than not. The playoffs are where this team will show whether anything has really changed this season.
Los Angeles Clippers
One of the ways the Clippers are “doing it” is by being really good at home, 8-1. On the road they are just 4-5. Another way is by scoring, they are third in the league which is the last thing you would expect in looking at their personnel.
Tobias Harris has always been a nice player and he leads with 20ppg. Just behind him are Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams at 18ppg. This definitely doesn’t look like a high scoring team but when you add it all up they are 117ppg with good shooting percentages too.
Montrezl Harrell has been unleashed this season. Always productive on a per minute basis he has seen his minutes get up to 25 per game this season and is contributing 16ppg and 7rpg. His energy alone is what makes this team go at times.
Defensively the Clippers are second in FG% allowed but 23rd in points allowed. That is a huge discrepancy that will have to be watched as the season progresses.
L.A. doesn’t look like a contender but we are close to a quarter of the way into the season and they have been playing like one. Maybe their demise is not inevitable.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers travelled down the coast and just got hammered by Golden State. The Warriors were missing Steph Curry and Draymond Green but still beat Portland by 28 and shot over 50% from the floor for the game. It was a game the Blazers should have been in.
Even though there was obviously not much defense the game also showed Portland’s lack of depth. No player off the bench scored more than 8 points and if you are going to be among the better teams and beat the better teams you can’t just do it with your starters.
Earlier in the month the Blazers hosted the Clippers and won 116 – 105. A margin like that should be reproducible in this Sunday game. They have lots of matchups that they should be able to exploit against L.A. They outscored them by 11 at the foul line last night.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Portland should be able to bounce back in this spot. They are back at home and taking on an opponent that they know they can beat.
The line is small which might be a buying opportunity after they just got hammered. That loss might have given us a point or two.
