Boston Celtics vs Los Angeles Clippers Tips


The Los Angeles Clippers look set to continue their excellent form with victory over the Boston Celtics on Saturday. 

The Clippers top the Pacific Division ahead of city rivals the Lakers, and are second in the Western Conference behind the Utah Jazz. Boston are fourth in the Eastern Conference. 

I’m predicting the Clippers will continue their run to the playoffs with a hard-fought victory over the Celtics by 10.0 points or less. 

  • Boston are currently only third in the Atlantic Division 
  • Boston are in danger of missing the playoffs this season 
  • Los Angeles thrashed Cleveland on Thursday 121-99
  • Los Angeles have won 11 of last 13 games 

Head to Head 


The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Clippers have played each other 132 times in regular season NBA games. The Celtics currently lead the Clippers by 89 wins to 43. 

However, in the their last six meetings dating back to the start of 2018, the Clippers have had the edge, leading the Celtics 4-2. Their most recent meeting in February saw the Celtics win in a high scoring thriller 141-133. 

Boston Celtics Form 


The Celtics have lacked consistency this season, largely due to losing vital players such as Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to injury. 

Boston began this season with 8 wins and just 3 defeats, but since mid-January they have slumped to three wins and six losses. 

Last time out Boston were beaten by Sacramento 116-111.

Celtics Team News 


The Celtics have been plagued with injuries this season, and have four key first team players out in Romeo Langford, Payton Pritchard, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart. 

While they will miss Brown’s high points scoring average, the equally effective Jayson Tatum – with a 26-points average – will start against the Clippers.
Los Angeles Clippers Form 

Saturday’s game against the Celtics will take place at their home of the Staples Center, where they have been very strong this season, with eight wins and just two defeats. 

The Clippers’ record of 17 wins against six defeats is the second best in the NBA, only topped by Western Conference leaders the Utah Jazz. 

Clippers Team News 


Point guard Patrick Beverley will miss Saturday’s game against the Celtics due to injury, as will Jay Scrubb. 

The outstanding Kawhi Leonard - who has averaged 26 points per game for the Clippers this season - looks sure to start, as does Paul George, no slouch himself with a 22-point average.

Verdict

I’m picking the Los Angeles Clippers to win a competitive game against a spirited but outgunned Celtics by 10.0 points or less.
 
Their last encounter in February was a high scoring affair with a points total of 274.
