NBA Odds: Paul, Rockets Visit Tough Clippers Team

Feb 26th, 2018


The Los Angeles Clippers (31-27 SU, 33-24-1 ATS) look different today than last year. They don’t have Chris Paul or Blake Griffin anymore, but the Clippers are 6-3 SU and ATS since trading Griffin to Detroit, and they’ll be reunited with Paul this Wednesday when they host his new team, the Houston Rockets (46-13 SU, 30-28-1 ATS). Tip-off is at 10:30 PM ET on ESPN.

Los Angeles isn’t quite as potent without Paul manning the point, but the seven players they received from Houston in their offseason trade have helped the Clippers stay balanced and competitive in the Western Conference. The Rockets, meanwhile, are first in the league standings after 12 straight wins at 7-5 ATS, and they’ve addressed their depth concerns by adding veterans Joe Johnson and Brandan Wright after their contracts were bought out.

Health could be a problem for the Clippers going into Wednesday’s game. Oft-injured forward Danilo Gallinari is on the shelf again with a right hand contusion, although he could be back in action any day. SG Avery Bradley, who came over from the Pistons in the Griffin trade, is out until March with a lingering groin issue.
