The NBA is back in action today as the Los Angeles Clippers will clash with the Charlotte Hornets.
The Clippers are heading into this game after a 121-103 defeat in Toronto against the Raptors.
While on the other side, the Hornets enjoyed a 125-118 home win over the Bulls on Saturday night.
Los Angeles Clippers Form
The Clippers are playing for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. However, they only have 1 game advantage over the Kings and 1.5 over the Lakers. It is a tight race and it will interesting to see if the Clippers will manage to hold on. Especially because, the fatigue is kicking at their form at the moment.
On the offensive side of the game, the Clippers score an average of 114 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the high 6th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.4 boards per game, combined with 23 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, Los Angeles is allowing an average of 113.6 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the low 24th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Charlotte Hornets Form
The Hornets aim to maintain their playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Moreover, they have now 2 wins in a row. Charlotte has only 1.5 games advantage over the chasing Miami Heat.
They played against the Bulls and now will look for a third straight win.
Kemba Walker had a terrific game as he scored 37 points in the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hornets score an average of 11.5 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the average 16th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 44.4 boards per game combined with 23.5 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, they allow an average of 111.2 points per game which is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring.
Kemba Walker is their main man as he leads the team with 24.6 points per game.
The Clippers might be suffering from fatigue. Their schedule is not very good as this will be their 3rd game in the last 4 days. On the other side, the Hornets are playing well at home and they will aim to keep the winning momentum. Both teams are fighting to keep their playoff spot. However, I think that the Hornets have the edge in this one. I expect another home win for Charlotte.
