The Los Angeles Clippers invade the Fiserv Forum to do battle with the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. Here’s a Clippers vs Bucks Prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in decent shape as they've split their last six games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the Timberwolves in a gritty 89-88 road win last night. Kawhi Leonard led the team with 32 points, Norman Powell chipped in with 24 points on nine of 13 shooting off the bench while Paul George chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Clippers shot just 37 percent from the field and 10 of 34 from the 3-point line as they clawed their way back from an early 16-point deficit, before they played great defense in the clutch to restrict the Timberwolves to just two points in the final 1:39 to escape with the narrow win despite missing Russell Westbrook in this match.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have are really starting to heat up now as they've won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be gunning for a sixth straight victory after blowing past the Bulls in a 113-97 road win on Friday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 46 points, 16 rebounds and six assists, Damian Lillard added 16 points and seven assists while Patrick Beverley chipped in with 14 points in just 18 minutes off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot just 43 percent from the field and 15 of 46 from the 3-point line but they played great defense and were never in danger as they never trailed and led this one by as many as 25 points at one stage.

Clippers vs Bucks Prediction

The Clippers are still shorthanded with Russell Westbrook still ruled out, while the Bucks are still missing Khris Middleton and they are keeping an eye on Giannis Antetokounmpo who is questionable due to left Achilles tendinitis. The Clippers haven't been at their best lately, but they're coming into this one fresh off a gutsy comeback win over the in-form Timberwolves, so they will like their chances against a banged up Bucks team who could be missing their leader in this one. This should be a close one and I'm tempted to take the Clippers with the points, but they are playing this one on zero days rest while the Bucks haven't played since Friday. With that being said, I'm leaning towards the Bucks to take care of business at home with fingers crossed that Antetokounmpo suits up here.
