The Los Angeles Clippers and the Detroit Pistons duke it out at Little Caesars Arena on Friday night. Here’s a Clippers vs Pistons Prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

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 eager to keep it going after routing the Wizards in a 125-109 road win on Wednesday. Kawhi Leonard led the team with 31 points, nine rebounds and four assists on 14 of 25 shooting, James Harden added 25 points with nine rebounds and five assists while Amir Coffey chipped in with 17 points on five of seven shooting. As a team, the Clippers shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 30 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 37 points in the first quarter to jump out in front early, before they dominated the third quarter by 40-19 to lead by as many as 29 points before they took their foot off the gas in the fourth quarter.

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.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in a rut as they've lost five of their last seven games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after coming up short to the red-hot Cavaliers in a 128-121 road defeat on Wednesday. Danilo Gallinari led the team with 20 points on six of eight shooting off the bench, Cade Cunningham tallied 19 points with seven assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Pistons shot a healthy 55 percent from the field and 16 of 31 from the 3-point line which are good enough numbers to beat most teams, but the Pistons just had no answer for the Cavaliers' Donovan Mitchell who drained six 3-pointers to finish with a game-high 45 points and eight assists. The Pistons will meet the Magic after this one.

Detroit Pistons Player Facts

  • Jalen Duren ranks 4th amongst qualified players for FG% (64.0%) this season.
  • Bojan Bogdanovic ranks 5th amongst qualified Forwards for three-pointers made Per Game (3.0) this season.

  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for Q4 win percentage this season (29.8%).
  • The Clippers rank 1st in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.3%).
  • The Clippers rank 2nd in the league for H1 opponent points per game this season (54.8).

Clippers vs Pistons Prediction

The Clippers are still a little shorthanded with Ivica Zubac still ruled out, while the Pistons are still without Mike Muscala and Isaiah Stewart. The Clippers have been one of the hottest teams in the league for a while now and they looked dominant in their big win over the Wizards on Wednesday, while hte Pistons are still struggling to win games, but they were more than competitive in a narrow loss to the surging Cavaliers in their last outing. The Pistons are capable of being a pest and hanging around in this one, but the Clippers have been on a tear lately and I think they maintain their momentum with another big win here.
