The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 112.8 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 23.8 points and 6.4 rebounds, while Paul George is averaging 23.7 points and 6.1 rebounds.

Damian Lillard is averaging 32.4 points and 4.7 rebounds, while Anfernee Simons is averaging 21.1 points and 2.6 rebounds.

The Clippers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 21-7 in Clippers last 28 road games. The over is 4-0 in Trail Blazers last 4 overall. The Clippers are 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
I'm not eager to get behind either of these teams, but it is fair to say the Los Angeles Clippers are playing the better basketball at the moment. The Portland Trail Blazers continue to underachieve, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 14 points. Not sure how anybody can get behind the Trail Blazers with confidence in their current form. Give me the Clippers and the small chalk.
