Monday, February 15th finds the LA Clippers hosting the Miami Heat for the second time this season. In the initial meeting, the Clippers won 109-105 on January 28th. LA has a four-game win streak versus the Heat.
The Heat holds the all-time record between the clubs with 36 wins in 64 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice with the Clippers taking both contests.
With Jimmy Butler back on the court, the Heat have made quick strides to climb up the ladder to the ninth position in the Eastern Conference.
Their four-game win streak came to an end in Utah as they played their second match of a seven-game road trip.
Miami opened the road trip with a win versus the Rockets, lost to the Jazz as noted, and will face the Clippers, Warriors, Kings, Lakers, and Thunder next.
In the loss to the Jazz, the big issue was a 15 point third quarter and a six-minute plus stretch where Utah held Miami scoreless.
Kendrick Nunn led his team with 23 points while Bam Adebayo registered a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds. Butler registered 15 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. Max Struss and Tyler Herro scored 15 and 12 points respectively.
Goran Dragic has missed seven of the last ten games with an ankle injury and is listed as questionable for Monday. Avery Bradley (calf) will miss up to a month.
Chris Silva (hip) remains out with no specified return date. Meyers Leonard underwent season-ending shoulder surgery
The Clippers own a three-game win streak with victories over the Wolves, Bulls, and Cavaliers. They can’t afford to look ahead but after this contest versus the Heat, they’ll play two games in Utah versus the Jazz.
With superstars, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both out on Sunday Lou Williams got the start. He answered the call posting season highs in both points and assists as he collected a double-double of 30 points and 10 assists.
Serge Ibaka also stepped up with 21 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. Marcus Morris (23), Patrick Beverley (16) and Luke Kennard (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Leonard is nursing a leg contusion while George has an injury to his toe. Both are listed as day-to-day on the injury report.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Clippers are 7-3 in the teams last 10 meetings.
- The Clippers are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these clubs
- The over/under is 3-6-1 in the last 10 contests between the clubs
Free Miami Heat vs. LA Clippers NBA Prediction:
Much will depend on whether Leonard and/or George can play Even with one of them on the court the Clippers will have a far easier shot at winning
Butler lives for games like these and will have his squad fired up to net the win and not fall into a losing streak just as they’ve turned the corner.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers ATS
The Clippers own the second-ranked offense and 11th ranked defense while the Heat rank 26th offensively and 7th defensively.
If one of Leonard or George plays the Clippers take this match but if both are out is less certain. Assuming that happens I like the Clippers to pull away late from a tightly contested game through three quarters.
