LA Clippers @ Indiana Pacers Tips
Two in-form teams collide on Tuesday (April 13) when the LA Clippers take on the Indiana Pacers in an NBA inter-conference regular season game. The Clippers are on a five-match winning streak and are third in the Western Conference, while the Pacers have won four of their last five games, the last three on the bounce, and are ninth in the Eastern Conference.
This will be the second time these two teams have played each other this season. They first met back in January and on that occasion the Clippers won clearly by a scoreline of 129-96, a winning margin of 33 points. Tuesday’s game will be the final time they face each other this season, unless of course they meet in the NBA Championship finals.
The LA Clippers have negotiated their way through a tough schedule, consistently winning far more games than they lose. Their current five-match win streak includes big victories over their perennial LA rivals the Lakers, and Western Conference no.2 team the Phoenix Suns.
Indiana haven’t quite had the season that the Clippers have had, but they are only a few percentage points shy of the playoff places. However, I’m backing the Clippers to defeat the Pacers by around 10 points in a competitive matchup, based off both teams’ records and their previous meeting in January.
- Clippers 3rd in Western Conference
- Clippers 37-18 this season
- Indiana 9th in Eastern Conference
- Indiana 25-27 this season
Head to Head
The LA Clippers and the Indiana Pacers have played each other a total of 91 times, with Indiana currently leading their head-to-head by 56 wins to 35. Over the past four seasons including 2021, the Pacers and the Clippers have played each other six times, with the score tied at three each. The last time these two teams played each other was in January this year, with the Clippers winning 129-96.
LA Clippers Form
The LA Clippers’ season just keeps going from strength to strength; they have now won more games than anyone else in the NBA this year, except for the Phoenix Suns, who also have 37 wins, and the Utah Jazz who have 40. Their current five-match winning streak is also the longest winning run in the NBA right now.
Included in that streak is a 133-116 win over Western Conference 6th ranked Portland Trail Blazers, a 104-86 win over the WC 5th ranked LA Lakers, and a 113-103 victory over WC 2nd ranked Phoenix Suns, three big wins that show what great form the Clippers are in. On Monday they defeated the Detroit Pistons 131-124 for their latest win.
Indiana Pacers Form
The Indiana Pacers are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference. In order to reach the postseason playoffs, the Pacers would have to claim one of the top eight spots in the Eastern Conference. While they are unlikely to make inroads into the higher echelons of those rankings, they are just two wins shy of the New York Knicks and the Charlotte Hornets, and just three off the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.
After going through a couple of sketchy periods in January and February where they were losing far more games than they were winning, the Pacers have gone 6-4 in their last 10 games, and won their last three on the bounce. In their most recent game, they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 132-125 on Monday (April 12). Caris LeVert was there primary points scorer for that game with 34 while Malcolm Brogdon scored 11 assists for Indiana.

Over the past four seasons including 2021, the LA Clippers and the Indiana Pacers have played each other only six times, with honours even. Earlier this year, the Clippers defeated the Pacers comprehensively by 33 clear points 129-96. Since that game, LA have been consistently among the front runners of the Western Conference, while Indiana have been in or just outside of the Easton Conference playoff positions.
Both teams go into this game off the back of good winning runs, but based purely off their earlier meeting this year and their current overall records, I have to back the LA Clippers to defeat the Indiana Pacers by around 10 points in a competitive matchup that will feature around 220 points in total.
