The Los Angeles Clippers travel to the Capital One Arena to battle the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. Here’s a Clippers vs Wizards Prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in fine form as they've won eight of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after having their five-game win streak halted by the Cavaliers in a 118-108 road loss on Monday. Kawhi Leonard led the team with 30 points, eight rebounds and three assists, Norman Powell added 18 points off the bench while Russell Westbrook chipped in with 13 points off the bench.. As a team, the Clippers shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Cavaliers in a close contest that stayed within a couple possessions until the Cavaliers started to pull away late in the third quarter. Paul George had a rough game as he shot just three of 11 from the field and zero of five from the 3-point line.

Los Angeles Clippers Player Facts

  • Paul George ranks 1st amongst qualified Forwards for FT% (90.9%) this season.
  • Kawhi Leonard ranks 3rd amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.7) this season.

Washington Wizards 

The Washington Wizards have been in poor form as they've lost 12 of their last 15 games overall, but they will be gunning for a third straight win here after taking down the Spurs in a 118-113 road win on Monday. Kyle Kuzma led the team with 18 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, Daniel Gafford added 16 points with 13 rebounds while Tyus Jones chipped in with 15 points and nine assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 53 percent from the field and nine of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace with the Spurs in the early going and fell behind by 14 points, before they made their move in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Spurs by 31-20 to pull off the unlikely road win.

Washington Wizards Player Facts

  • Daniel Gafford ranks 1st amongst qualified players for FG% (69.8%) this season.
  • Tyus Jones ranks 1st amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (7.6) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent points per game this season (124.0).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent assists per game this season (30.1).
  • The Clippers rank 1st in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.2%).
  • The Clippers rank 1st in the league for Q1 opponent points per game this season (26.5).

Clippers vs Wizards Prediction

The Clippers are still a little shorthanded with Ivica Zubac ruled out, while the Wizards are still missing Landry Shamet and Isaiah Livers. The Clippers were on an absolute tear before they got stopped in their tracks by the Cavaliers on Monday, so even though the Wizards have sprung to life with two wins in a row, I'm still going with the surging Clippers to get the job done as the road team here.
