The Los Angeles Clippers are in the middle of their east coast road trip, and make their way to face the Washington Wizards at Capitol One Arena. The Clippers are looking better, winners of three in a row. Washington is still trying to get their feet under them. The team is two games over .500 right now. The Wizards are 3-2 over their last five games.
The last time the Clippers and Wizards took the court against each other, was December 9th. The Clippers got the home win, 113-112. This game could be a close one tonight in D.C.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles has been struggling without Blake Griffin, but seem to have found a way without him. The Clippers have won three straight, including a win in Orlando 106-95 in their last game. The Clippers shot 43 percent from the field and 46 percent from three point land in the win.
Lou Williams led the charge in the win. Williams had 31 points in 33 minutes for the Clippers, looking like Vinny “the Microwave” Johnson against Orlando. Shooting 11 of 22 from the floor and 3 of 6 from three point range. Williams is leading the Clippers in scoring this season at 20 points per game.
Aside from Williams performance, DeAndre Jordan played like a top five big man in the NBA. He shot 8 of 13 from the floor for 16 points and snatched 20 rebounds. If Jordan keeps playing like he did against Orlando, his landing spot before free agency will be with a contender.
Defensively, the Clippers have held their last two opponents to 95 points or less. Los Angeles is allowing 106.7 points per game this season. One thing to point out; the coaches son will be held out of Friday’s game against the Wizards, due to concussion protocol.
Tonight, the Clippers will be able to see if having Rivers on the court is a plus for the team, or a minus.
The Washington Wizards are starting to look like the Paul George Indiana Pacers from six years ago. Washington has talent and can definitely talk the talk; but in my opinion, it’s doubtful they can walk the walk. The Wizards are 15-13 in the eastern conference this season. If the Wizards are to be taken serious, they must play like a veteran playoff team.
The guard play of Bradley Beal and John Wall has been above average as expected. The duo are combining to average 44.8 points this season. Wall is averaging 20 points and nine assists per game this year. Beal has boosted his scoring average this season to 24 points per game this season.
We all know what Wall and Beal do for the Wizards, but it has got to be the supporting cast that helps the team win more games. The Wizards are going three deep off the bench. Washington’s three main role players averaging over seven points per game.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Los Angeles Clippers are starting to find a winning groove on the road. If they are to beat the Wizards tonight, they must feed the post. They need DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams to play above average in this matchup.
The Wizards continue to be the enigma of the east early in the season. On paper they look like a top four team in their conference, but have yet to prove they are worthy. Hopefully they pull it together, or we could see a coaching change before the all star break for the Wizards.
