The only traveling Washington needs to do for Tuesday night’s game is move their bags down the corridor of the Staples Center after playing their on Monday in a 127-124 OT win over the Lakers.
The Clippers will get to face an exhausted Wizards team, which they’ll take after falling 112-108 to the Nets on Sunday. That’s two losses in the last three for L.A., although one was against Utah who is beating everybody.
Give the Wizards credit, they battled back from a 14-point deficit to get Monday night’s victory, their 5th in a row. Pushing that number is going to be a stretch though after the win over the Lakers was so draining.
Per usual Bradley Beal fueled the win for Washington, going for 30+ for the 4th time in the last 5 games. Russell Westbrook missed a triple-double by one assist, finishing with 32/14/9.
Westbrook has been great lately, finally finding his groove with the Wizards posting three straight triple-doubles prior to the Lakers game. Will he play on the back to back though? Since the Long Beach native is out West…maybe?
Westbrook and Beal both logged 44+ minutes in beating L.A., and have to travel to the tiring atmosphere of Denver on Thursday to wrap up this West Coast swing. Is there any sense breaking your bodies with another tough test looming?
Los Angeles Clippers
L.A. should at least secure the win as -10 point home favorites on Tuesday night. The Clippers are 11-6 at the Staples Center on the year but are really just trying to stay / get healthy themselves as we head towards the Spring.
Paul George has returned from his toe injury and Kawhi Leonard seems somewhat back to full strength in logging 37+ minutes the last two, scoring 29 points in the win over Utah and the loss to the Nets.
L.A. had consecutive games with Utah in the last week, and Leonard missed the first loss to the Jazz. They’ve won 4 of the last 5 when he’s been in the lineup. George had 15 in his return on Friday, and added 34 vs. the Nets.
George is still on a minutes restriction, and him being held out late cost a chance at the win over Brooklyn. The Clippers have Wednesday off before a back-to-back with Memphis so they should be full go on Tuesday.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Washington has played great lately, winning five straight and at least showing signs that they have the ability to climb back into the postseason race, currently 2 GB from the 8 seed but with 4 teams ahead of them.
It’s just a lot to ask of the Wizards to knock off the Lakers and Clippers on consecutive nights, especially when Monday’s game required an excruciating comeback and also went to OT.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under 235.5
We just don’t know how many minutes Beal and Westbrook are going to play or if they’ll be pulled early if the Clippers start to run away with things. The Clippers D should be able to tighten up vs. a tired team.
