The Hornets basically have nothing to play for at this point, but as a credit to them they have continued to play hard despite that being the case. They have won 5 of 6 games overall and most recently beat the Rockets in overtime by a score of 105-99. Eric Gordon scored 27 points to lead the Hornets while Carl Landry sparked off the bench with 20 points and 10 rebounds. The Hornets are 6-2 in the last game in which Eric Gordon has played.
The Clippers had ripped off 13 wins in the last 15 games before losing to the Suns 93-90 in their last game. Chris Paul led the way with 19 points and 10 assists but showed some ill effects of a thumb injury that is looming. The Clippers will look to the rest of the regular season games to get ready for the playoffs and also hope to catch the Lakers for the division who they only trail by ½ game.
Head to head, these teams have split two meetings this season, but the Hornets are 21-6 ATS in the last 27 meetings and 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings in Los Angeles.
While we like the Clippers to win this one outright we think this is just too many points to lay. The Hornets are playing hard and because of that take the points and go with the Hornets in this one so before wagering check the sports odds.
