The Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers duke it out at the crypto.com Arena on Sunday afternoon. Here’s a Nets vs Clippers Prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in terrible shape as they've lost 14 of their last 18 games overall, but they will be feeling much better after snapping a four-game skid with a 130-112 road win over the Lakers on Friday. Nicolas Claxton led the starters with 22 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks, Cam Thomas led the team in scoring with 33 points on 13 of 18 shooting off the bench while Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in with 19 points. As a team, the Nets shot 52 percent from the field and 19 of 47 from the 3-point line as they got off to another poor start and trailed by 12 points early, but they must have figured something out during the halftime break as the Nets dominated the second half by 68-44 to pull off their best comeback win of the season.

Brooklyn Nets Player Facts

  • Nicolas Claxton is one of only three qualified players in the league averaging a double-double while shooting over 40% from three this season.
  • Spencer Dinwiddie ranks 9th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for assists per game (6.1) this season.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in red-hot form as they've won nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be looking to keep it going after blowing past the Thunder in a 128-117 home win on Tuesday. Paul George led the way with 38 points, seven rebounds and five assists on 15 of 24 shooting, Kawhi Leonard and James Harden scored 16 points each while Mason Plumlee chipped in with 14 points on five of five shooting. As a team, the Clippers shot 54 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 43 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Thunder in a closely contested first half, before they took control of the contest with 34 points in the third quarter to take a 13-point lead and pull away for the solid win at home where they are now 17-4 on the season. The Clippers will meet the Lakers, Raptors, and Celtics after this one.

Los Angeles Clippers Player Facts

  • Paul George ranks 1st amongst qualified Forwards for FT% (91.1%) this season.
  • Kawhi Leonard ranks 3rd amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.7) this season.

Nets vs Clippers Prediction

The Clippers are a little shorthanded here with Ivica Zubac ruled out already, but the Clippers are clearly the better team in better form, so it's no surprise that they''re so heavily favored at home. The Nets were able to pull off a great win over the Lakers in their last outing, but they were on a terrible run before that win, so I' not convinced that they've turned the corner. With that being said, I'm sticking with the more reliable and consistent Clippers to take care of business in this spot.
