Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Golden State Warriors are piling up the losses as it is, and now they're going to be without Draymond Green yet again. Throw in Gary Payton II still being out, and the Warriors are down their two best defenders, and they've had issues over the years playing without Green, who sets the tone for everybody else. The Warriors have lost 10 straight games at the Crypto.com Arena. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing their best ball of the season, which includes 5 straight wins. The Warriors are in trouble given the loses and now the loss of Green until further notice. Give me the Clips and the chalk.
