LA Clippers @ Portland Trail Blazers Tips


The LA Clippers take on the Portland Trail Blazers in an NBA Western Conference regular season game on Wednesday, April 21. This will be the third time these two teams have played each other this season; the Clippers won their first meeting back in December 2020 by 128-105, and defeated Portland again earlier this month 133-116. 

The LA Clippers are third in the Western Conference, three places above the Trail Blazers. The Clippers recently enjoyed a seven-match winning streak that came to an end last week with defeat to Philadelphia. They have since bounced back with a win over Minnesota. Portland’s recent form has been somewhat sketchy, and they have lost six of their last nine games. 

I’m backing the Clippers to make it three-straight wins over Portland with a dominant display of points scoring on Wednesday. LA will win this game by at least ten points, in a matchup that will feature over 230 points in total. 

  • Clippers 3rd in Western Conference
  • Clippers 40-19 this season 
  • Trail Blazers 6th in Western Conference
  • Trail Blazers 32-24 this season

Head to Head


The LA Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers have played each other a total of 230 times, with Portland currently leading their head-to-head by 147 wins to 83. Over the past three seasons, these two teams have played each other nine times, with LA leading 6-3. The Clippers and the Trail Blazers have met twice this season, with LA winning 128-105 in December, and most recently 133-116 in April.

LA Clippers Form


The LA Clippers are surely set to top the NBA league at least once this season. The league ranks all of the teams in the NBA based off their win percentage. Currently the Utah Jazz are top, with Phoenix second, Philadelphia 3rd and the Clippers fourth. The Lakers, who were ahead of the Clippers earlier this season, are down in 8th. 

After winning seven-straight matches earlier this month, the Clippers lost to the 76ers in a close fought battle, Philadelphia edging the match by three points 106-103. However, LA have shown great resilience all season, and once again they bounced straight back to win their last match, defeating Minnesota 124-105. 

Portland Trail Blazers Form


While sixth in the Western Conference, Portland are also currently third in the Western Conference Northwest Division, behind leaders the Utah Jazz and second placed Denver Nuggets. The top eight teams in each conference progress to the playoffs, so Portland should be fine – as long as they can improve on their recent results. 

The Trail Blazers have a record of 32 wins and 24 defeats, but this month they have been losing twice as many games as they win.  Portland have won just one of their last four games, only just beating San Antonio by a solitary point on Saturday 107-106. In their last outing on Monday (April 19) they went down against Charlotte 109-101.

Verdict

While their historical head-to-head shows that the Portland Trail Blazers have won the bulk of their meetings, right now, the LA Clippers are dominating Portland. They were 3-0 last season, and on course to repeat that in 2021.
