With the regular season winding down these Californian rivals, both with 8 games remaining will take to the court to try and improve their standings in the Western Conference. 

LA have created a small buffer between themselves and the “chasers” group consisting of the Mavericks, Pelicans, Suns and Kings with a handy 3 game win streak on this current road trip which finishes in Sacramento. They still have a couple of tough games ahead and with every win and loss possibly contributing to a drop into Play-In territory they will be mindful to take the opportunities that are given.  

6 of the remaining 8 games for Sacramento are all against teams with much better records including both conference leaders in OKC and Boston. They have though had some success against the Clippers in recent years with a 5-5 record over the past 10 games. In their most recent matchup in February the Kings outscored LA 123-107 leading for almost the entire game and shooting almost 50% from the floor.

With the Play-Offs still a few weeks away there is an opportunity to catch an opponent sleeping but i am tipping Ty Lue has the Clippers raring to go and they won’t have a problem covering the 2.5 points on the back of their stellar 3 point attack.

  • LA have the 3rd best 3pt% in the league at 38.7%
  • Sacramento allow their opponents to shoot 39.2% from the perimeter on average which is the second worst number in the NBA
  • Both teams are top 15 in scoring with the Clippers at 11th (116.3 pts/gm) and Kings at 9th (117.3 pts/gm)
  • Kawhi Leonard has averaged 28.3 pts against the Kings over the 3 games played this season

2022-23 Season Series: 

Sacramento took the series 3-1 thanks to one of the highest scoring games in recent history a 176-175 OT game in February 2023. The teams have split the last 10 matchups 5-5 with the same number ATS. The Under has hit in 7 of the last 10.

LA Clippers Form


After some shaky form in the beginning of March the Clippers were able to finish the month on a high with 3 wins on the trot. LA have the 3rd best Offensive Rating in the NBA and when they are on they are ON! 

What is slightly worrying is the turndown on the defensive end from recent years with the team sitting at 18th in Defensive Rating.

No injury news at time of publishing

Sacramento Kings Form


Sacramento finish their 5 game home stand with this game against the Clippers. They are 2-2 with wins against the 76ers and Jazz which bookend back to back losses against the Dallas Mavericks. 

The Kings are 13th in Offensive Rating but have struggled to put points on the board across this home stand, they are also the league's worst Free Throw shooting team. 

Sacramento Kings Team News


Kevin Huerter will be out for a period of time as will Malik Monk who was on track to be 6th man of the year.

Verdict

The Clippers are in red hot form and with the Play-offs as close as they are i expect them to ramp things up rather than down. The line is short considering how previous games have played out so i am taking the Clippers to cover and the Total to go Under due to the Kings poor scoring form.
