A battle occurs in the Golden State on Thursday night, as the Clip travel north to lock horns with the surprisingly competent Sacramento Kings at the Golden 1 Center.
The Kings have impressed people, but the Clippers have been the class of the Western Conference so far, tied with the juggernaut Golden State Warriors for tops in the conference. Both of these clubs know how to push the pace, so we should see some solid spreading the floor and a potentially high score in northern California, in the House that Peja Stojakovic, Vlade Divac and Chris Webber (once) Built. Gosh, that’s a long time ago.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have ridden Tobias Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams to a scoring onslaught and a very nice record to date. It seemed like the Clip had thrown their hands up and blown it up after jettisoning DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin et al., but their new core is working nicely so far. They’ve got Montrezl Harrell shining the glass and have balanced scoring as well.
L.A. is currently ranked fourth in the NBA in points per game (almost 117 per) and ninth in the league in rebounding (47.3 per game), which tells most of the tale of the tape. The Clippers are long and athletic, even with the departure in recent years of guys like Jordan and Griffin. Harrell is just a beast on the glass, while guard Lou Williams has always been an underrated offensive talent.
As usual, most of the ink spilled in SoCal has been about King James’s addition to the cross-town Lakers, but while they get all the pub in Tinseltown, the Clippers just go about their business. The Clip have won three in a row and eight of their last nine ballgames.
Who knows how well Steve Ballmer’s guys can sustain this – we know that the superpower Warriors will eventually congeal and take the top spot in the West – but the Clippers look at least like a respectable playoff team for the duration in the West.
The Kings have come back down to Earth a bit recently, but they still have had a nice start to the 2018-19 campaign and have demonstrated that, for once, finally, they are on the right track forward. The Kings were riding a nice hot streak a couple of weeks ago, and though losers of two straight, they dropped to the champion Warriors by a mere point.
Most of the turnaround has to do with Sac-Town’s scoring and effective ball movement. The Kings rank eighth in the NBA in points per and eighth in assists per game (almost 25 per contest). Point guard De’Aaron Fox looks great, as he can put the ball in the hoop (17.5 PPG) and leads the team in dimes (7.5). The Kings truly have an interesting young core of Fox, Buddy Heild, Willie Cauley-Stein and Marvin Bagley. Shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic provides some veteran guile.
Sacramento is far from a finished product, but all those draft picks it has been compiling over the years finally seem to be bearing fruit. Heild has always been a prodigious scorer, and with the potential of Fox, Cauley-Stein and Bagley yet to really be unlocked, brighter times seem on the horizon for a franchise that has struggled for a long time – really since the Shaq & Kobe Lakers era.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
I anticipate the ball to go in the basket a whole bunch tonight in Sac-Town. Both teams can run the floor and L.A’s Williams can stripe the threes when he gets hot. The Kings rely on a frenetic pace and whipping the ball around the offensive zone whilst creating good spacing.
Though both teams should land comfortably in the 100s with their scoring, I expect the visiting Clippers to have too many horses for the young Kings, and accordingly will grab a road victory in northern California.
