Lakers vs. Clippers: prediction for the NBA match

The upcoming Los Angeles derby will be crucial for both teams. What to expect from the Lakers vs. Clippers game? The answer is in our prediction.

Статистика команд

LA Lakers

Lakers gained great form for the Los Angeles derby. Team secured six victories in ten latest matches. LeBron James, who still has a minor ankle injury, is getting closer to his career high 29,8 points per game. 

Austin Reaves, Lonnie Walker and Anthony Davis are still on team's injuried list. LeBron is still not 100% healthy. But despite these problems, Lakers are not so far from their rivals in the standings. Team is currently 12th in the Western conference standings, but hosts are only three victories away from the 6th position.

LA Clippers

Clippers are 6th in the standings with a record of 25 victories and 24 defeats. However, team's current form is not so great - visitors earned only four victories in ten latest matches. 

On November 10, Clippers secured a comfortable victory over the Lakers (114:101) in the most recent head-to-head match. Paul George scored 29 points in that game.

Prediction

Looks like it will be a battle between two evenly matched opponents. Home advantage and successful results in recent matches make the Lakers slight favorites. But the Clippers have been more consistent throughout the season, plus some of the Lakers are currently injuried. Each of the clubs earned two victories in latest matches. Taking all that into account, we think that the Lakers will lose, but just by a narrow margin. 

Our prediction - Lakers to win with a handicap of (+4,5) points

We are expecting a tight clash here. Opponents are unlikely to score many points here, especially since LeBron James is not completely healthy. Defense will prevail over the offense here.
