Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been on a tear as they've won 12 of their last 14 games overall and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after blowing past the Raptors in a 127-107 road win last night. James Harden led the team with a triple-double of 22 points with 10 rebounds and 13 assists, Paul George added 21 points, Russell Westbrook provided the spark off the bench with 20 points while Norman Powell chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Clippers shot 50 percent from the field and nine of 32 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest early, pouring in 37 points in the second quarter to take a 14-point lead into halftime which allowed them to cruise the rest of the way almost unchallenged.

  • James Harden ranks 5th amongst qualified players for assists per game (8.6) this season.

Boston Celtics

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have been in pretty good form as they've won six of their last seven games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after making light work of the struggling Heat in a 143-110 road win on Thursday. Jayson Tatum led the team with 26 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Kristaps Porzingis added 19 points while Jaylen Brown chipped in with 18 points and five assists. As a team, the Celtics shot a sizzling 63 percent from the field and 22 of 40 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 42 points in the first quarter to take the early double-digit lead and they just never took their foot off the gas in one of their most dominant wins this season.

  • Derrick White is one of only five qualified players in the league averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.

  • The Clippers rank 1st in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.8%).

Clippers vs Celtics Prediction

The Clippers are still missing Ivica Zubac while the Celtics could be without Kristaps Porzingis after he suffered an ankle sprain in Thursday's win over the Heat. We are in for a treat as we have two of the hottest teams in the league colliding in what could be a Finals preview. The Clippers have been on fire for a while now and they looked great in last night's easy win over the Raptors, while the Celtics are gunning for a fourth straight win after making light work of the Heat in their last game. You can make an argument for either side here, but the line just seems too hefty for this one, so even though i think the Celtics get the win, I'm taking the Clippers with the points in what should be a close one.
