Sunday in the NBA brings us a great matchup between the Pacers and Clippers but Indiana could be in trouble without their star Paul George in the lineup. The Pacers are 1-3 at home without PG-13 on the court and the Clippers have been one of the most lethal teams in the NBA thus far losing just one of their eight road games.
– Shark BITES
- The Clippers 11 OVERs are tied for 2nd most in the league.
- The Pacers are 2-3 both SU and ATS without George this season.
- The Clippers have not lost consecutive games all season.
At the beginning of the season, the Clippers were one of the best spread bets in the NBA. Nobody expected them to come of the gates like they did and the result was LA crushing lines set by bookmakers. That seems to have adjusted itself now as Chris Paul and the Lob City crew have slowed their clip, going just 1-5 ATS in their last six games.
If the spread closed at the 10.5-point mark it was at the time of writing, it would be the most road points the Clippers have laid all season.
Something that might scare me off taking the Pacers’ double-digit spread this evening is how good the Clippers’ offense has been this season and how bad Indiana’s defense has been. LA is second only to the Warriors in scoring and the Pacers have given up the most second-chance points in the league.
DeAndre Jordan could have himself a big day on the glass based on Indiana’s inability to clean up the boards and that’s been crucial to the Clippers’ success. In their 14 wins, Jordan has averaged 12.4 rebounds and collected just 9.7 in LA’s three losses.
