Clippers vs. Lakers Predictions

Last season, the Clippers finished 44-38 overall and 27-25 in Western Conference action. The Clips shot 47.7% from the field and 38.1% from 3-point range as well. L.A. enters Wednesday night’s matchup as a 6.5-point underdog against the Lakers.

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia 76ers traded James Harden, P.J. Tucker, and Filip Petrusev to the Clippers for Marcus Morris, Nic Batum, Robert Covington, KJ Martin, a 2028 unprotected first-round pick, two second-round picks, a 2029 pick swap, and an additional first-round pick that will be acquired from a third team.

Meanwhile, the Lakers went 43-39 overall, 27-25 in Western Conference play, and 23-18 at home in the 2022-23 season. L.A. also averaged 6.4 steals, 4.6 blocks and 13.5 turnovers per game.

Per ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Lakers hold a 55.8% chance of defeating the L.A. Clippers. Since Harden is not expected to play tonight, LeBron James and Anthony Davis should be able to take care of business at home.

For one of the more interesting predictions, the Lakers could very well eliminate their 10-game losing streak to the Clippers tonight. The San Antonio Spurs ended their nine-game skid to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

Be sure to watch out for patterns throughout the course of the NBA season.
