LA Clippers - Golden State Warriors
Big game tonight! Two of the best three teams in NBA at this point.
I think this is the kind of game where it matters less what they have done against the medium and lower teams. It's a lot about statements, a lot about power rankings.
And at this point Golden State is developing as the best offensive team in NBA history. They are coming of a 142 - 106 game against Indiana, the team that has twice dismantled the Clippers. In just a bit more than a week.
I don't think the Warriors will have the second loss to a top team so soon after the Houston loss. And yet, there was a run'n'gun game, which either it won't be the case today either they will be happy to have it.
The Warriors have started a little sluggish this season, which was natural due to the important personnel movements in off-season.
But recently not only they are shooting their minds out, with Klay Thompson scoring 60 points 2 days ago, at a phenomenal rate of 2.06 per minute, the second best between the huge scoring guys in NBA history, after that 100 points scored by Wilt Chamberlain in 48 minutes (2.09 per minute). But what's even more remarcable is the fact that for the past weeks they are also developing as a top defensive team and even a top rebounding team.
So while the Clippers might have a bit of an edge defensive wise, offensive wise the gap is bigger and it turns in the other direction.
Both teams are decently rested, with the Clippers having 2 full days of practice on home courst for the first time since the season begun. I see the Warriors meaning bussiness today and I'm waggering them to cover at half time.
Best of luck with your bets ;)
Let's go green!
