NBA Fantasy Prediction
Los Angeles Clippers vs Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder have only dropped one single game in their last 9 contests and with their big guys averaging near triple double digits every time. Their star, Russell Westbrook has 16 triple-doubles this campaign and leads the league in that department. He’s currently playing ball on an MVP level while his offensive partner in crime, Kevin Durant is averaging 27 pts the last 10 games with 8.3 boards and 6.9 assists. If the Thunder keep on playing this way, they will make things very interesting in the Western Conference playoffs, especially if they fall against the Spurs or the Warriors. This game is against one of their toughest opponents in the league but most importantly in the West but a Clippers team without their star will see Oklahoma City a huge favorite in this one.
The Clippers seem to have found their form lately and are coming into this matchup on a 4 game winning streak. This game will be another story as the coach decided to rest his big stars Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick against OKC. It will be a good test for their bench and Jamal Crawford but against a hot Thunder team like that, this will potentially be a blowout. With the Western conference playoffs positions close to being set, this rest is simply because the Clippers are ahead of 5th place Memphis Grizzlies by 6.5 games and sitting 4.5 games behind the Thunder.
