The Los Angeles Clippers are on the road as they travel to face the Houston Rockets Thursday, March 5 at the Toyota Center. Expectations from tonight NBA match are the highest, and we have prepared a predictions for this game. Who will win?
Los Angeles Clippers
The team from Los Angeles does not cease to amaze with its perseverance, as the club still hopes to catch up with the Lakers. The Clippers entered Wednesday second in the Pacific Division, 5.5 games behind the leader. Of course, it is worth noting win streak of five, but there is a really serious test ahead. Doc Rivers leads his team on the right way, though when you include Paul George and Kawhi Leonard it’s much easier to play.
Clippers’ predicted lineup: Patrick Beverley, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris Sr., Ivica Zubac
The Rockets gave a good win streak, which helped the club to wedge again in the fight for a place in the top 3 of the West. Everything went stick to the plan of Michael D’Antoni, but in the last game the situation got out of control. Houston sensationally lost to New York in the away match (123-125), everything would be fine, but the opponent is one of the three outsiders of the Eastern Conference. The impression was that the team simply underestimated opponent at the beginning of the meeting, and already in the second half of the confrontation it was difficult to seize the initiative and turn the tide of events.
Rockets’ predicted lineup: Robert Covington, Danuel House, PJ Tucker, James Harden, Russell Westbrook
Clippers vs Rockets Predictions
Support for home stands, statistics of personal meetings, the atmosphere of the native court – everything speaks in favor of Houston, which will certainly play to the maximum. The Clippers is also not a gift, but the Doc Rivers team is not famous for stable appearances on the road, so we will give preference to the bet on the victory of Rockets.
Full-Game Side Bet
The Clippers understand that in the Toyota Center they will face a serious rival who can attack and can make you not only nervous, but also go all-in. This should be the most competitive game on the slate as these two are looking to prove that they belong in the title picture come playoff time. The last defeat was a cold shower for the Rockets, so James Harden and Russell Westbrook are preparing to rehabilitate in a home match against a principled opponent.
