Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers (By: Khum)

NBA

Regular Season

Los Angeles Lakers - Los Angeles Clippers

For the past 3 days the Lakers have went through a lot.

First the Christmas game in the Oracle Arena, where they blew the back-to-back champions off the court, they lost their leader in Lebron James (groin injury) and they lost their second leader in Rajon rondo (finger injury).

Then they went to Sacramento and lost in the final seconds to the Kings. That was a frustrating loss and a tiring one, as Kuzma played 40:02 minutes, Ingram 37:36 and Ball 36:50.

It seems that Rondo will have a surgery and he will miss some weeks, maybe a month. James will also miss several games. McGee is still questionable.

I believe tonight the Lakers will hit a tough spot, as I expect them to be physically tired in the second night of a back-to-back situation and also mentally tired after the big amount of events and adjustments they need to face in only 3 days. The Clippers had a day to rest after winning by 9 to the same Kings, they are playing at home despite the game counts as a road one and they don't have personnel problems as their opponents do.

I'm backing the Clips as a situational bet and ... let's go green!

Derrick Rose over 19.5 poiunts should be a nice bet, as Teague will miss this game and Rose will be the starting point guard, while Atlanta has some liabilities in defending the opponent back court.
