The LA Clippers and Golden State Warriors are both looking to climb the Western Conference ladder and separate themselves from each other in the standings. The Golden State Warriors are fifth in the West after winning three straight games and going 6-4 over their last 10 games. The LA Clippers are on an opposite trend as of late, losing their last three games and going 4-6 over their last 10 games.

The LA Clippers are a team that controls the pace in order to limit their opponents, holding teams to just 112.5 points per game (11th in the NBA) and 24.7 assists per game (11th in the NBA). LA's defense has let them down through their last three games though, allowing 139.3 points on 52.9% shooting from the field and 37.7% from three-point range. The Golden State Warriors are a team that attacks their opponents with incredible scoring intent, averaging 118.4 points per game (2nd in the NBA) while hitting 16.6 threes per game (1st in the NBA) on 38.6% three-point shooting efficiency (3rd in the NBA). Despite their lengthy injury list, the Warriors' offense hasn't faltered, averaging 116.0 points per game on 48.1% shooting from the field and 42.1% from three-point range during their win streak.

The difference between these teams is continuity, and the LA Clippers are still trying to figure out their roster composition before the playoffs. The Golden State Warriors have shown their quality even with their top players unavailable due to injury. We expect the Golden State Warriors to find victory in this matchup, with the pace and their shooting giving them the edge over the struggling Los Angeles Clippers.
