It should be an exciting affair as both the Los Angeles Lakers and the LA Clippers are looking to end the other's win streak and improve on their own in this meeting. The LA Clippers are on a two-game win streak, earning back-to-back victories over the Mavericks and Spurs. The Los Angeles Lakers have also won back-to-back games, earning victory over the Trail Blazers and Grizzlies.
It's been a comeback affair for the Los Angeles Lakers in both of their recent victories. They're averaging 121.5 points per game on 46.4% shooting from the field and 32.4% from three-point range, despite allowing their opponents 116.5 points per game over that same span of time. The Clippers' offense has been excellent over their last two games, but they'll want to solidify the defensive end. LA are scoring 121.5 points per game on 54.4% from the field and 48.2% from three over their last two games, but they're also allowing 112.0 points on 50.9% from the field and 44.3% from three.
This match doesn't project to be an up-and-down affair due to the Clippers' ability to control the pace, but the Lakers' recent form compared to the Clippers' should push the game in the favor. If they can establish their offensive game plan from the tip, the Lakers' recent form suggests they have enough in the tank to stay competitive offensively.
The Los Angeles Lakers are definitely a team that can rely on their offensive game to find results, but the LA Clippers aren't a team that will just roll over and give the match to them. The Lakers own an average combined points total of 235.1 points on a minus-0.9 points differential. The Clippers have an average combined points total of 220.2 points on a minus-0.8 points differential.
Over Los Angeles' last five games, the Lakers have averaged a combined points total of 240.0 points per game on 50.0% from the field and 32.9% from three-point range. The LA Clippers have averaged a combined points total of 229.4 points on 50.0% from the field and 43.6% from the three-point range.
The Lakers' offense has been impressive, and the LA Clippers' defense has been lacking in recent games. These two teams have cleared 232.0 in just four of their last ten games combined, with three of those matches coming from the Lakers. Expect a tough, up-and-down affair, but we don't see these squads clearing 232.0 on the night.
