The Los Angeles Clippers tip off against the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight with Kevin Durant’s crew favored (-5.5) in what should be quite a close game. Head coach Scott Brooks has not liked what he has seen defensively lately and it has been the scoring that has kept them in games. For instance, Durant and point guard Russell Westbrook scored a season high 68 points most recently.
“We knew they’d be tough”, said Brooks after the latest win. “We’ve got to do a better job of being a defensive team, we have to play better defense. But in the fourth quarter we really locked in and played inspired basketball.”
Would pick the Clippers to cover the spead on this one, but do think the Thunder will end up winning the game because they are so good at home. The Clips also played last night, and that is pretty tough to travel to a new city and be totally fresh. They will most likelly come out early with dead legs, but then Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will might for thins to get close near the end.
