The Clippers have played well this season even without all of their star players, as Paul George has not yet played. Los Angeles is averaging about 113 points per game and giving up 109 per contest. Leonard leads the team in scoring, averaging 29 points per game.

The Rockets have been winning games, but rarely covering the spread. They were 6-3 SU in their first nine games, but just 3-6 ATS. They are scoring a lot of points, averaging over 120 per game, but they have been awful on defense, giving up about 118 points per contest. James Harden leads the team in scoring, averaging about 37 points per game.

Clippers Scheduling Spot

I always like to look at a team’s schedule when making a play on them or against them. In this case there are some things to consider for the Clippers. They are coming off what should have been an emotional game for Kawhi Leonard on Monday, as they hosted his former team, the Raptors. This is also the first half of a back-to-back on the road for the Clippers. Los Angeles has been holding out Leonard in the second half of back-to-backs, so you have to figure he plays in this NBA game and then sits on Thursday at New Orleans.

Paul George Status

The Clippers have been without one of their new stars this season, as Paul George has yet to play. He was considered doubtful to make his season debut on Monday, but there is a chance he could play in this game against the Rockets on Wednesday or perhaps make his debut in New Orleans on Thursday. George said he doesn’t care whether he makes his debut at home or on the road. “Whether it’s home or away, I have a job to do,” George said to the media, “I’ll play hard and make mistakes. It’s part of the game. I plan on learning from that point on until late in the season where I want to be.” One thing that is clear is that George will be on a minute’s restriction in his first few games back. “That to me is the most dangerous part of the returning,” head coach Doc Rivers said to the media, “Whatever you have is healed. Now you exert yourself. It’s going to take time.”

Key Stats

The Clippers have won six of the last ten meetings in this series with the last three going over the total. The Clippers have also covered six of the last ten in Houston, including the last three. Seven of the last ten meetings in Houston have gone over the total.

I got a good win last week taking the Warriors and Rockets over the total, but there is no question the oddsmakers are starting to react to Houston totals. We saw three of their games last week with totals of more than 230 points. The Clippers are not a bad defensive team and Houston has been slightly better of late defensively after getting ripped in the press by their coach and even some of their own players about their lack of defense. I will make two plays and take the Clippers and the game to go under the total.

Clippers vs. Rockets Score Prediction: Clippers 112, Rockets 111
