The Los Angeles Clippers invade the FedExForum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night. Here’s a Clippers vs Grizzlies Prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in great shape as they've won six of their last nine games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back in this spot after getting shocked by the Thunder in a 129-107 road loss last night. Kawhi Leonard led the team with 20 points on nine of 12 shooting, Norman Powell added 19 points while James Harden chipped in with 17 points on five of nine shooting. As a team, the Clippers shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Thunder in a closely contested first half, only to leak 68 points in the second half to suffer one of their worst defeats of the season. Russell Westbrook had a rough game as he finished with just two points on one of nine shooting off the bench.

Memphis Grizzlies

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been doing it tough all season, but they will be aiming for a third straight win after outlasting the Bucks in a 113-110 win in their last game headed into the All-Star break. Ziaire Williams and GG Jackson led the team with 27 points each, Vince Williams Jr added 18 points with 12 rebounds and seven assists while Lamar Stevens chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 53 percent from the field and 13 of 26 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Bucks in a tightly contested first half, before they went on a decisive 15-4 run midway through the fourth quarter to pull off the unlikely victory at home.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for points per game this season (107.1).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for field goals made per game this season (38.8).
  • The Clippers rank 2nd in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.4%).
  • The Clippers are one of three teams to rank in the top-10 for both field goal percentage and free throw percentage this season.

Clippers vs Grizzlies Prediction

The Clippers are arguably one of the hottest teams in the league despite last night's bad loss to the Thunder, while the Grizzlies are aiming for a third straight win here despite still missing a host of key players. The line is hefty for this one and the Clippers are playing this one on zero days rest, but they just didn't give themselves a chance last night, so I'm expecting them to come out swinging and take care of business early.
