The Clippers have beaten the Heat and Magic by 17 points; but faced a tough Memphis team last night, and were out played completely on their scoring effort. They defense played by the Grizzlies was outstanding, as we have seen them doing most of this season as they went to the NBA best 12-2. The Clippers will feel confident as most of their starters are now averaging double digits, with only DeAndre Jordan yet to pick up his scoring this campaign. Jamal Crawford, Spencer Hawes, Glen Davis, Hedo Turkoglu and Jordan Farmar have definitely added a punch for them off the bench which has helped them remain fairly competitive while the first five are resting.
The Hornets are extremely heart broken after losing a winning opportunity last night against Miami, and will not have to try to find some positives out of that to try and turn around this poor performance into a victory. They have lost 8 out of their last 11; and are scoring on average of 95 points per game, which is in the bottom 5 of the NBA. They are also missing some production from Neal and Kidd-Gilchrist, which leaves additional pressure on the starting 5 to produce an extra effort.
The Hornets will be lacking confidence coming into this game, losing their last 5 games by an average of 12 points; including some huge losses to Golden State and Dallas. While Clippers are the level of those 2 teams, if Orlando can cover this spread, I am reasonably confident that these Clippers will cover this tonight.
